TPN‘s Trifling Person of the Week


Etta James

So you weren’t invited to sing your signature song as Barack and Michelle shared their first dance at the inauguration balls last month. That’s no reason to diss both the President of the United States and one of R&B’s top female vocalists. Saying Beyonce’s “going to get her ass whupped” for singing “At Last” is just not classy. Miss Etta, you need to have your ass whupped for being so trifling.

  1. Trifling indeed! However, I read today that Etta was only joking about her feelings toward Beyonce. She got caught up in the laughter she was causing with her Seattle concert crowd and said too much. How unfortunate.
