Etta James is Pissed! (Who is Etta James?)

If you're angry and you know it diss the President and Beyonce. Etta James is really angry. James, the 4 time Grammy Award winner, took a shot at both President Barack Obama and Beyonce, who played James in the movie Cadillac Record. The verbal slap down occurred during a concert in Seattle a few days ago.

James said, "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. You know that woman he had singing for him, singing my song - she's going to get her a*s whipped. "The great Beyonce. 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."

At last. An angry old woman. Neither the White House nor Beyonce has commented on the matter.

If I were Etta James, I would say the same thing

Before this whole thing, I thought Etta James was dead. So... good job Etta for crawling back into the spotlight!

Etta James might be smart for throwing a temper tantrum -- gives her the chance to blow off some steam and get free publicity at the same time
