“At Last” Etta James vs. Beyonce…It’s On!
Let the diva feud begin! Etta James has publicly berated Beyonce, her performance of “At Last“ for the President at his inauguration AND President Barack Obama himself! Etta allegedly spewed the following remarks at a concert last week in Seattle.
She starts out by saying “You know your President, right? You know the one with the big ears? He ain’t my President” – Ouch! That’s pretty rough considering he’s only been the Prez for a few weeks now!
She goes on to say, “I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she gonna get her *ss whupped,” and then sarcastically refers to Beyonce as ”The great Beyoncé”. Double Ouch!!! After all, this is what Beyonce had to say about Etta in reference to Beyonce’s role as Etta James in the motion picture “Cadillac Records”, “She’s a living legend and I want her to love the movie, and I hope she does”.
And if that wasn’t enough, Etta had this delightful little morsel to finish with “I can’t stand Beyoncé… [she] had no business…singing my song that I been singing forever.” Holy Cow! Stay tuned to see where this clash of the divas will head!
