Etta James & Beyonce // Cadillac Records LA Premiere

Etta James, the lady Beyonce portrayed in Cadillac Records, apparently doesn’t like the Single Ladies singer. At a recent concert in Seattle, she had a few choice words to say about Sasha singing “At Last” at one of President Obama’s Inauguration ball.

This is not a joke: 71-year-old Etta James actually threatened to beat the crap out of Beyonce Knowles — and it’s caught all on tape! The war is all over Etta’s song, “At Last ” — Beyonce sang the tune at Obama’s 1st Inauguration Ball on Jan. 20th … but last week at a concert in Seattle, James was still pissed.

While on stage, Etta told the crowd, “Your President, the one with the big ears … he had that woman singing my song. She gone get her ass whipped.” She continued, “The great Beyonce … I can’t stand Beyonce.” Ironically Etta didn’t kick up this sorta fuss when Beyoncé portrayed her in “Cadillac Records.” Reps for Beyonce had no comment.


Does Etta James know what she’s done? Does she know who she’s messing with? Mama Tina don’t play that sh*t!
