71-year old Etta James was performing at a concert in Seattle last week when she apparently had a reaction to her Alzheimer’s medication. I mean, I hope so, because if she didn’t, holy shit.
“You guys know your president right?,” she asked the audience. “You know the one with the big ears? Wait a minute, he ain’t my President, he might be yours but he ain’t my President.” “I tell you that woman he had singing for him, singing my song, she gonna get her ass whupped,”…”The great Beyonce … but 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.”
Old people do things like buy robot insurance and hide jars of pennies in their basement in case the world ends, but they also say whatever the hell they want. I’m only half joking when I say the only way this could have gotten any worse is if Beyonce was on stage getting tasered.
