Miss Etta Gets some RESPECT

Our Blues Lovers can now feel momentarily safer as the courts have okay-ed the use of Etta James money to pay for her medical care. Her money is under a conservator-ship since she had so many issues with her royalties. This keeps it under the scrutiny of an outside party to prevent pilfering. Ms Etta's had a bad spate of health lately and she really needed that money put in play to help get her the best care possible.
Many of you youngins only remember her from the movie Cadillac Records; where Bey portrayed her in her early days.

Yeah Ms Etta she is really stepping wayyy outside of you.
but we remember the Real Etta James. Her Wailing and Moaning was legendary and hopefully the doctors can keep her around a lil bit longer. We think that the documentarians need to get their cameras set up and start work on recording her words now; because unfortunately there aren't many of our Blues Queens left.
Good Health Ms Etta and we look forward to seeing you on the road to good health once again soon.

Do You Remember This Tune ?

This is the latest news on her health and the court decision from googlenews

Judge: Etta James' husband may use $60K for care

(AP) – 1 day ago
RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California judge has ruled that Etta James' husband may use $60,000 of the ailing R&B singer's savings to pay for her medical care.
Riverside County Superior Court Judge Thomas Cahraman said at a hearing Friday that the money should last until Feb. 24, when Artis Mills is expected back in court to continue seeking control of more than $1 million of James' money.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise says Mills is challenging the legitimacy of a claim by James' son, Donto James, that his mother gave him power of attorney in 2008.
Court documents show the 72-year-old singer of "At Last" and other standards lives in the Woodcrest area of Riverside County, has been diagnosed with dementia and is undergoing treatment for leukemia.
We send our sincerest wishes for Better Health and good spirit to Ms Etta as she battles Leukemia. Only God knows the time but we all know the moment.. we first heard Etta James.

It is so sad that they have started fighting over her money even before she is actually dead. In regards to the Beyonce issue, I think Ms. Etta is just being cranky.

I have, however, been losing more and more respect for Beyonce, the more and more she over does the oozing sexuality stuff. For she should have the full attention of every man (straight or gay) in any room from the moment she walks in without having to bump and grind.

Etta finally started to get her royalties after several decades. the courts were standing in when she was so sick she needed someone to do it. and now it seems its' an angel move actually. this way she should get care since she obviously has some cash to pay for it.

Beyonce is so damn tall that whenever she walks in anywhere she's gonna get attention. this extra attention seeking is really a symptom of her daddy issues. that's probably why she married that camel. they say scharazade needed a whole tent of "tenders" to keep her game tight. apparently so does bey.
