I know Beyonce would probably win in a fight, but I can’t help but root for Etta James.Etta James spoke out today about Beyonce Knowles singing James’ song “At Last” at the inauguration ceremony while Mr. and Mrs. President danced. She said she didn’t care for Beyonce and that she will “whoop her ass”.
As entertaining as that may be, I wonder why the harshness? Did James feel slighted? Was she not asked to sing the song? Did she even want to? She referred to President Obama as “your president”, not hers. She even says “the one with big ears”. She means Barack. Our man Barack?
Maybe, and please forgive me for saying so, but maybe, just maybe, she can’t sing like that anymore?
I don’t like Beyonce either, but I ain’t hating. What’s up, Etta? Where’s the love?
