Etta James: "I Can't Stand Beyonce"

Etta James is not a fan of Beyonce or President Barack Obama.

"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 Seattle concert last week.

"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 added. "She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol' president day...singing my song that I've been singing forever."

Obama and wife Michelle shared their first dance to Beyonce's rendition of the classic tune.

James' son, Donto, told the New York Daily News that Beyonce's Inaugural ball performance "was great" earlier, though.

"She's gotten emotional, just like everybody else. She was honored," he said.

Beyonce also plays James in Cadillac Records. The pair were all smiles posing at the November premiere of the flick.

First Diana, Then Aretha, Now Beyonce can add Etta to the list of female legends that have spoke some ill fated words towards her. That said, I'm personally sick and tired of these legends feeling like they are owed something, but I can see the situation both ways. In Etta's defense, "At Last" is her signature song, so it would have been more fitting for Beyonce to sing one of her own songs, that said, Beyonce didn't force them to choose her and if she was good enough to perform it as a tribute to you (@ Fashion Rocks), then what's the difference here. It's obvious Ms. James is just a little salty that they didn't ask her to deliver the performance, that said, it definitely made for a laugh hearing this old woman talk about beating someone's ass. LMAO

As for the Barack comment, I'll leave that one alone, because I have nothing positive to say about that situation.
