Crazy Old Lady Alert! Crazy Old Lady Alert!

I'm really hoping that Etta James was speaking tongue-in-cheekly when she made these remarks. I don't care whom she voted for (obviously, they lost, whoever it was), but the threats are just way over the top.

I'm not a huge fan of Beyonce, either, and always liked Etta more, but what the hell makes her think she owns this song? She didn't write it, after all.

Hopefully, she was joking and this candy-rag took her out of context. It's not unheard of.

She's probably just hurt that she wasn't asked to sing for the president.

The girls on The View were talking about this. They said it was petty of Etta. Beyonce' was asked to sing and she decided that most of her own hits were not appropriate for the occasion. Lord knows I'm not a big Beyonce' fan but Etta james didn't have to say Obama wasn't her man. That is why she wasn't asked to sing, don't you think? ed

When Beyonce played Etta James back in November they were the best of friends. Etta should just be glad they didn't go with their first choice to play her, Whoopi Golberg. ed

Sarah: In retrospect, it's probably a good thing she DIDN'T sing for the President! Lord knows what she would have hidden in her shoe...

Ed: If anybody should know "petty," it would be those old hens on "The View." (Except Whoopi and Joy--they're not TOO bad.) Speaking of Whoopi, I can't see her as Etta. Moms Mabley, perhaps (I've seen her do a good impression of the latter, actually)...
