After saying yesterday that she was going to “whoop Beyonce’s ass” for singing “At Last” for the presidential inauguration, Etta James is backpedaling fast and furiously. Here’s what she had to say today:
“I was feeling left out of something that was basically mine, that I had done every time you look around.
“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. Nobody was getting mad at me in Seattle. They were all laughing, and it was funny.”
A joke is a joke, I guess……still seemed a bit like sour grapes to me!
