Etta James has harsh words for Obama & Beyonce

The R&B icon vented her gripes about singer Beyonce Knowles and President Barack Obama during a recent concert in Seattle.

The 71-year-old diva is steaming mad over Beyonce's performance of 'At Last,' her signature tune, at Obama's first inauguration party. The President and First Lady Michelle Obama danced to the legendary ballad. In the fiery rant, she threatens to beat up "that woman" and openly mocks "the one with the big ears"

Hear the Audio Clip:

You guys know your president right? (crowd: “Yeah”) You know the one with the big ears. (man in crowd: "Yeah we know him") Yeah, wait a minute, he ain’t my President, he might be yours. He ain’t my President. I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she gonna get her ass whipped. (crowd: "Cheers & Applause")
