Beyonce On Etta James

In a post on her blog, Beyonce shared her respect for the late Etta James and the impact and talent of the soul singer. Beyonce famously portrayed James in the 2008 film Cadillac Records, and reminded her fans exactly why James was so rightfully revered.
"This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time," she penned on her blog. "I am so fortunate to have met such a queen. Her musical contributions will last a lifetime. Playing Etta James taught me so much about myself, and singing her music inspired me to be a stronger artist. When she effortlessly opened her mouth, you could hear her pain and triumph. Her deeply emotional way of delivering a song told her story with no filter. She was fearless, and had guts. She will be missed."

That's very complimentary & Big of Beyonce since Etta trashed her after she sang Etta's sing at the Obama's Inargural Ball. Etta went on a drunken tirade belittling Beyonce & Obama's decision to have invited her when she felt that it should've been her. If she wasn't so addicted & affected by alcohol perhaps she would've gotten that invitation she felt she deserved. When alls said & done Bey always keeps it classy.

Maybe you should keep your ignorance to yourself! She had dementia for several years before she died! She did not understand why B was there and not her! She WAS the one preforming but her sons decided that her dementia was so bad they canceled and that's why Beyonce preformed it for her! It has NOTHING to do with being drunk and that wasn't a drunk tirade that was a mentally ill person being completely confused!! Listen and learn before you speak!
