Etta James declares war on Obama and Beyonce

I didn't think it was possible but apparently not everybody loves President Obama, and Beyonce. Blues, R&B, soul and jazz superstar Etta James is livid about Beyonce singing her song "At Last" to Obama and Michelle at their Inauguration Ball. She tore into both of them at a recent concert claiming that Obama was your President, not hers, and that she was going to kick Beyonce's ass. Here's what she had to say about the both of them:
"I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she gonna get her ass whupped"

"I can't stand Beyoncé... [she] had no business ... singing my song that I been singing forever."

"You know your President, right? You know the one with the big ears? He ain't my President."
