Bitch Fight!!!

James, known for her rendition of the classic song “At Last,” lashed out at Beyonce during a recent concert, criticizing her Inauguration performance during which she sang “At Last” for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
At a concert this week in Seattle, James said: “You guys know your president, right? You know the one with the big ears? Wait a minute, he ain’t my president, he might be yours, he ain’t my president. You know that woman he had singing for him, singing my song–she’s going to get her ass whipped.”
James continues, “The great Beyonce. I can’t stand Beyonce. She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol’ president day, singing my song that I’ve been singing forever.”(

Ahem, Miss James no disrespect. Yes, you sang the shit outta' that song for years and congrats on that. Now, if the President who by the way is yours and mine and everyone else in this country chose Beyonce to sing it and not you then what do you think she is going to say to his request? She has every right to sing it because you, unfortunately, do not own it. There was a similiar issue like this when the movie Dreamgirls came around and Jennifer Hudson did her own rendition of the very popular "You're Gonna Love Me." Nobody listened to that lady either so holler all you want.
