Beyonce sang “At Last” during last night’s Fashion Rocks. She killed it like she kills anything she touches. Now some might have the opinion that our staff is composed of a bunch of Beyonce “stans” which is not true. We just simply admire true talent. The woman’s voice is angelic.

Well anyway after checking out the video tell us whether this chick killed it better than Beyonce. CLICK HERE!

Etta James recently spoke to Pagesix about Beyonce portraying her in an up and coming film. Here’s what she had to say….
“It’s a privilege and an honor to have somebody like that girl. I don’t think she looks like me, but that’s all right. They can fix that up,”
Speaking on the challenges facing Beyonce’s role…
“Oh my god, she’s going to have a hill to climb, because Etta James ain’t been no angel!”
Speaking on giving Beyonce pointers on the singing….
“I have my own way of putting those songs over, and I was just wondering if Beyoncé could, and my son said, ‘They’re thinking about how she looks, but mama, she can really sing!’”
“I kinda have a man’s voice. It’s a contralto, more bluesy, religious. I would really like to work with her on that,”
On there differences…..
“I wasn’t as bourgie as she is, she’s bourgeois. She knows how to be a lady, she’s like a model. I wasn’t like that… I smoked in the bathroom in school, I was kinda arrogant, so those are some of the things I would want to tell her.”
Mediaoutrage- This will really give Beyonce the opportunity to reach down deep and see if she’s able to display the necessary emotions that truly define great actors.
