Quote of the Day: Etta James on Beyonce

- By Bossip Staff

Here’s what legendary singer Etta James had to say about Beyonce portraying her in an upcoming film:

“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.”

“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 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.”

Yep, Bey is such a lady. We only get to see her ass flaps once or twice a year.
