Beyonce Remembers Etta James

Beyonce has released a statement remembering the late Etta James, whom she portrayed in the movie Cadillac Records.

“This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time,” Beyonce said. “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.”

Etta passed away on Friday (January 20) due to complications from Leukemia.

BEYONCE IS A RETARDED BARBIE! SHE CAN’T SPEAK ENGLISH – SOUNDS LIKE SHE HAS A SPEECH IMPEDIMENT. SHE IS REALLY STUPID. BELIEVE ME! SHE IS TALENTLESS UNLESS YOU THINK SCREAMING IS A TALENT. SHE BLEACHES HER SKIN AND WILL NOT STOP WEARING STRAIGHT BLONDE WIGS BECAUSE OF HER FATHER. HE MAKES HER TO THAT! BEYONCE’S NAME SHOULDN’T BE IN THE SAME SENTENCE AS ETTA JAMES. BEYONCE IS A TALENTESS, UGLY, FAT ASS, WITCH!

I agree 110% with Chandler she is just a stupid who_e who can’t scream dress to impress little hookers and Etta James had more talent in her little finger that Beyotch Ho/No Pregnant has in her entire fake body…. People now days have no idea what it means to have talent vs a good PR machine. Die Beyotch Die

Didn’t Etta James hate Beyonce?? I’m pretty sure she said some nasty stuff about her singing her songs…

Beyonce couldn’t wait to talk to public again since she is forced to stay home and let people believe she’s playing mother. I doubt she is even able to touch her baby with her fingernails she can’t take away, let forget she will ever change diapers. She must be so bored.

You guys are pathetic ! Let’s just leave it to that

Everyone who announced their pregnancies during the same time dodo brain announced are still pregnant and dodo brain gave birth to a four month baby roflmao!!!
