Default Etta James: "How Dare" Beyonce Sing "At Last"

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.


Oh snaps!
