Did Etta James Go Too Far?

If there’s one thing we love it’s a crunk sista of advanced age. It doesn’t matter if what she has to say is fair, warranted, realistic or accurate–it simply entertains us. I’m sure everyone by now is aware of Etta James‘ remarks on Beyoncé singing “At Last” for the Obamas‘ first dance. If not, behold this magnificent gem of a quote:

“You guys know your president right? You know the one with the big ears. Yeah, wait a minute, he ain’t my president, he might be yours. I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she gonna get her ass whipped. The great Beyonce! Now like I said, she ain’t mine. I can’t stand Beyonce! She had no business up there singing. Singing on a big ole, big ole president day and going be singing my song that I’ve been singing forever.”

Ha!

Etta James speaks her mind

Although we were quite amused by this, we’re aware that not everyone thinks it’s that funny. The SB crowd tends to be a passionate, opinionated bunch. How do you feel about Etta’s rant? Additionally, did she go too far by tossing President Obama under the bus?
