for those that don’t know this woman, this is the singer that beyonce knowles portrayed in the movie cadillac records and made her 1961 hit “at last” known to this generation.

it was etta james’ illness that led her to the controversial comments at a concert a year ago where she suggested beyonce should be whipped for singing “at last” for president obama’s inaugural ball, said her son, donto james.

“i can’t stand beyonce,” she told a seattle, washington, audience. “she has no business up there, singing up there on a big old president day, gonna be singing my song that i’ve been singing forever.”

apparently, she was upset about the inaugural¬†because she was supposed to be hired, but she wasn’t well.”

aww, poor etta.
