Etta James Disses Beyonce For Singing “At Last” For Barack Obama

Oh snap!

Etta James got on stage and was getting ready to sing her famous song, “At Last” when she dug her claws into Beyonce. Bey sang the song at Barack Obama’s Inaugural Ball and this did not make Etta happy, not one bit.

Etta says:

“I’m gonna do a song for ya now that…umm….You guys know your president right? (crowd: “Yeah.”) You know the one with the big ears. Yeah, wait a minute, he ain’t my President, he might be yours. I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she gonna get her ass whipped. (Applause.) The great Beyonce! Now like I said, she ain’t mine. And you aint mine, I mean I made a mistake, you are mine. But I can’t stand Beyonce! She had no business up there singing. Singing on a big ol’, big ol’ president’s day and going be singing my song that I’ve been singing forever. We’re gonna do that song for you. I gotta do it for you…(inaudible over applause)…That song is called, ‘At Last.'”

Mwuahahaha! (In case you missed it, this was also my first Youtube upload….enjoy!)
