Etta James….”the one with the big ears – he ain’t my President”

USA-OBAMA/When Beyonce serenaded Barack and Michelle Obama at their first inaugural dance, I just assumed it was kosher for her to sing Etta James song.  I was wrong.  Evidently Etta is pissed off in a major way at Beyonce for singing it and at Barack for asking Beyonce to sing At Last, the song that she made famous world wide decades ago. 

At a recent concert of hers in Seattle, Etta unleashed her hidden anger to the crowd, saying:

“You know, YOUR President, the one with the big ears-he ain’t MY President–had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration. She’s going to get her ass whipped.”

“The great Beyonce? How dare Beyonce sing MY song that I been singing forever. He ain’t my President.  Now I’m going to sing it for y’all….”

You go Etta….how refreshing – finally someone in the black community with the intellect and the guts to speak truth to power about Obama and at the same time put Booty Bouncin Beyonce on notice…..”sing your own damn song”.    (Beyonce’s performance of At Last was mediocre at best).   

At Last is a great, classic song.  Etta James has been singing it and many other hits that she made famous for the past several decades.   Maybe the Beyonce/Obama generation ought to put their “40” down and ask themselves why Obama didn’t ask the bootygirl to sing one of “her songs”.  It doesn’t take a third rate, two bit community orgranizer from the Southside of Chicago to figure out why!   Beyonce, like Obama, is all image and no substance.  Obama borrowed his ideas from Hillary and Bill Clinton and his speeches from Deval Patrick and countless others…..and Beyonce is evidently making her fortune by singing other peoples songs!

Add this to the growing list of bad decisions that reinforce what I and many others have known about Obama since day one…..he lied when he said he had “good judgment”.

  1. I can feel you anger, enicks. Beyonce is past her prime. Now she’s wearing ridulous clothes and whoring herself to the highest bidder. She should be a role model and instead she’s a disgusting whore.

  2. yeah, Obama & Beyonce….both whores….both cheap imitations…both for sale to the highest bidder.

  3. Stop calling women whores. Haven’t you learned anything? Find something else to say.

  4. Masha — some women are whores. Go talk to MS magazine — they want to hear from you.

  5. I call a spade a spade and a whore a whore.

  6. So, when are you going to print that Etta James meant it as a joke? Or do you just comment and fail publish recants?

    JUST KIDDING: Etta James said she was only kidding when she announced at a recent Seattle concert that she “can’t stand” Beyoncé and poked fun at President Barack Obama’s ears.

    “I didn’t really mean anything,” James, 71, told New York’s Daily News. “Even as a little child, I’ve always had that comedian kind of attitude. “… That’s probably what went into it.”

    The Secret Service has a way of turning people into jokesters.

    James admitted she was irritated that Beyoncé sang her classic “At Last” for Obama’s first dance on inauguration night and that she wasn’t invited to perform it. She says she kept spewing insults at the show because “nobody was getting mad at me in Seattle. They were all laughing, and it was funny,” adding that her jokes were “not from a vicious place.”

    Then why fire off that shotgun while saying it?

    Although she cracked that Obama had “big ears,” James says she “always thought he was handsome and he was cool. He’s got other stuff (to worry about) besides Etta James.”

    So…what is your response to that? If you even have one.

    As for your whore comment, you seem to be fine in keeping with the SQ on oppression. Tell us, why is Beyonce a whore? Because she is successful and we see her doing a lot of different things?

    That was one song that she sang that was not hers. Maybe you missed the countless platinum albums she holds…

  7. Sure she was kidding…..just like Obama was kidding when he said he never heard Rev Wright make a anti-american racist speech.. Etta probably received threats prior to revealing that being pissed off at Obama passing her over to sing her song at the inaugural ball was just a joke. wow….the level of ignorance and gullability among Obama supporters never ceases to amaze me.

  8. Etta James + Beyonce = Wicked Catfight
