Etta James threatens to ass whip Beyoncé
Legendary soul singer Etta James has launched a verbal attack on Beyonce – and threatened to whip the pop star’s ass.
The 71-year-old star unleashed the tongue-lashing on-stage in Seattle last week.
The source of her rage? The fact that Mrs Jay-Z sang her song At Last during President Obama’s inauguration ball in Washington on 20 January.
She fumed: ‘You guys know your President, right? The one with the big ears? He ain’t my President. He had that woman singing my song. She gonna get her ass whipped.’
‘The great Beyoncé, she ain’t mine. I can’t stand Beyonce.
‘She had no business up there singing on a big ol’ President day, singing my song that I’ve been singing forever.’
The audience laughed as she then announced she’d sing the song herself.
As well as covering the hit 60s track, Beyoncé also recently portrayed the star in her latest film Cadillac Records.
