Maybe she wanted to sing it? I think she is overreacting, though.

I think she's either jealous or racist. More than likely Jealous tho. The bitter old woman should put up or shut up.

Well she's obviously not racist. You know they're both black. Right?

Etta James made that song and no matter who else sings it, they never get out of the song what she did. She should have kept her mouth shut, but she has nothing to feel jealous about. Beyonce and Celine Dion do a beautiful job, but there's something missing when they do. I'll say it; that song belongs to Etta James. Anyone who sings it needs the added depth of blues in their voice. If someone else had said it, no one would be upset.jmho

Dude... maybe she was pissed at how trampy Beyonce made her look in the movie, and this is how she got it out Don't know though, haven't seen it


I would be pretty awesome to see Etta beat the crap outta her. You know she would too. There are two reason's for this:
1 Beyonce knows better and wouldn't fight back *most likely*
2 Etta's a badass in disguise and will whoop her!

All seriousness though, that was kinda uncool. Maybe Beyonce didn't have the rights to do it, although public domain should rule here.

Or, another thought, maybe she really wasn't in support of Obama.... just cuz she is black doesn't mean she agrees with his policies, and didn't like the fact that her song was sung in his celebration. I can understand something like that.

IMO..no one comes even close to singing it the way Beyonce does....Edda has her style and Lady "B" as hers...Edda is overreacting...she never had the success Beyonce has that's all...she's bitter....

Edda would get her old a** beat down.....Beyonce is TOO much of a lady to even comment on this whole thing.....Edda also said president Obama was not her president.....geez.....how unAmerican!!

Nobody said anything about her not supporting Obama...this is not about him...she said that cause he and Micelle danced to her song "At Last" sang by a wonderful singer other than herself....it may be 'her song'......but she doesn't own the rights to it.....she's just bitter....she needs to get over herself!
