Etta James Calls Out Beyonce

by at . Comments

Barack Obama and wife Michelle shared their first dance as President and First Lady to Beyonce's rendition of "At Last," made famous by Etta James.

Sweet, right?

Beyonce and Jay-Z

Not according to James!

"You guys know your president, right? You know the one with the big ears? Wait a minute, he ain't my president, he might be yours, he ain't my president," James told fans during a concert in Seattle last week.

Are you on Team Beyonce or Team Etta?

The singer then zeroed in on Beyonce:

"You know that woman he had singing for him, singing my song - she's gonna get her a-- whipped. The great Beyonce...But I can't stand Beyonce. She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol' president day...singing my song that I've been singing forever."

(Pssst, Etta: Glenn Miller actually recorded "At Last" in 1941; Nat King Cole proceded to cover it 1957; your version hit the air 20 years after the original.)


beyonce is fat biotch. who think her ugly a** is the most beautiful thing that landed on earth. i can't wait until the media turn on her a** like they did other celebrities. fat biotch need to go and sit down. she is not a role model for black girls of america. white people wouldn't have her dumb stupid a** representing their children. the biotch said since Barack is president now she feel two days smarter.


lmaooo i think that was hillarious!


OMG! We finally get a great Black President! Beyonce is a beautiful and classy singer and did an outstanding job with Etta James song! Etta James should be thankful anyone remembers her old ass! She's a bitter bitch! I personally feel Etta James needs to get a grip and needs to apologize for her stupid remarks! She is a hot mess! Beyonce you are so awesome lady keep doing your damn thang!


BEY(BIOTCH) "DUMB" ONCE or Beyonce or Ms. Ghetto Hoe f***king trash is a disgrace to the black race. I mean come on. She has no singing skills, and yet people love that biotch. Sad that we don't know real singers anymore, because hoochie mama's like beyounce are allowed to parade around the tv set, and show off their cellulite. To bad she didn't have any real talent, or this world would be interesting but she's a ghetto HOE SLUT in my book. Let's wake up folks


wow. I dont think Sasha Fierce is gonna like that. I saw her NYC the other day, and got this pic. shes flawless. Take that Etta James!


I, for one, am glad to know I'm not the only one who can't stand Beyonce. I watched one movie with her in it and she always looked like a deer in headlights and sounded like she was reading her lines off of a prompter. Her music is weird and reminds me of finger nails on a chalk board. And what is this Sasha Fierce junk. Who is she, Eminem?


Etta James is a great singer, but she should go back to the nursing home from which she came. Older singers should support up and coming singers, but she so jealous she was not asked to sing the song, so she has to say nasty things about Beyonce.
