Has Etta James lost her mind? She slams Beyonce and Barack Obama. (Audio)

Etta James, Etta James, Etta James....

I know she is a jazz legend, but is she on the drugs again? I mean, Etta has heard Beyonce sing this song in the summer, UP CLOSE and PERSONAL, she had nothing but praises for B. Now she slams Beyonce for singing her classic, "At Last" for the Obamas during the televised Neighborhood Ball. This is definitely some old school vs. new school bull crap.

"I can't stand Beyonce! She's going to get her ass whooped," Etta screamed (via) at an event celebrating her career. The chanteuse went on to slam Barack Obama for selecting Ms. Knowles to do the honors. "You know your president, the one with the big ears -- he ain't my president -- he had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration. How dare Beyonce sing my song that I been singing forever!"

Beyonce keep it classy. No need to respond. It is apparent her anger is that she was not asked to sing. President Obama, we know your mantra, above the fray, in other words, "No Comment."
