This is not the response I wanted from Etta James about the “ass whooping” she promised to bestow on Beyonce for singing “At Last” at Obama inauguration. In a telephone interview with the NYDN, Etta said, “I didn’t really mean anything. Even as a little child, I’ve always had that comedian kind of attitude. … That’s probably what went into it.”
No, what went into it was a few grams of the bad shit!
Etta went on to say that she felt left out of the Inauguration and that she probably could have sang the song better than Beyonce. When asked about saying Obama has “big ears,” she again said she it was all a joke and that she thinks he’s handsome. Etta continued, “That might be horrible. The President might not ever like me in life.”
I’m guessing that Basement Baby paid Etta a little visit and handed her an envelope. Etta opened it and found a note on Sasha Fierce (made from 100% ego fibers) stationary that said, “It’s backtrack time! Love, Daddy Knows.” In the envelope was also a stack of unmarked bills and an 8-ball cut with Benefiber. Etta cunt-cunt-can’t (c-word slip) say no to an 8-ball.
Etta needs to bring back the cunty old lady I fell in love with. Now that was a good look. The correct response would’ve been, “Fuck Beyonce! I’m old and I’ll say what the fuck I want. Now, are you going to snort that last line?”
