I've been patiently waiting on this one to come out. So, it's being reported that Etta James is salty at President Obama and at Beyonce' for singing her song for the first dance when she was totally free to do it. According to MSN, Etta not so kindly expressed her disappointment with an audience in Seattle during a concert stop.

"You guys know your president, right?" she asked the crowd amid cheers ("You know the one with the big ears? Wait a minute, he ain't my president, he might be yours, he ain't my president. You know that woman he had singing for him, singing my song -- she's gonna get her a-- whipped. The great Beyoncé ... But I can't stand Beyoncé. She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol' president day ... singing my song that I've been singing forever."

Well Etta, from what I hear you probably couldn't afford to sing at the first dance since word on the street is that Beyonce's dad, Matthew Knowles, paid a hefty sum to one of the inaugaration committee members in order to secure Beyonce's spot to sing that night.
