Etta James is NOT pleased with Beyonce...

Look out Beyonce...Etta James is looking to open up a can of whoop azz on you....

Beyonce has upset another iconic singer -- and no we're not replaying the Aretha-Tina-Beyonce threeway..

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Etta James is steaming over Beyonce singing her hit "At Last" at President Barack Obama's Neighborhood ball !

Concertgoers and reporters, who attended an Etta James show Wednesday, say James felt 'free at last' to slam Beyonce and organizers for her song being performed, this after spending much of December promoting the film 'Cadillac Records' with Beyonce.

While on stage, Etta told the crowd, "Your President, the one with the big ears ... he had that woman singing my song. She gone get her ass whipped." She continued, "The great Beyonce ... I can't stand Beyonce."...

James' rumored flap over the song follows Beyonce's much talked about dispute of sorts with Aretha Franklin.

Franklin, who became upset after Beyonce called Tina Turner a queen at the 2008 Grammy Awards, accused Beyonce and Grammy organizers of 'courting controversy'.

"It's not about battling the original artists when I record these songs, it's about paying tribute to them." - Etta James
