Etta James Hospitalized; Beyonce Heat Perfume Ad Debuts

According to singer Etta James’ son, the Diva was hospitalized about a week ago with sepsis (a serious blood infection) caused by a urinary tract infection.

Donto James said his mother entered a drug rehab facility on the west coast to shake her dependency on prescription drugs. She was transferred to another facility then to the hospital when her condition worsened.

James is best known for her timeless classic “At Last” which was the subject of a full length movie starring burlesque singer Beyonce. Speaking of Beyonce, her perfume ad debuted this morning all over the Internet.

    In the video, Comedian Mooney calls Kanye West a hero, Beyonce a bucking horse, and Oprah a double agent (an Aunt Jemima with a degree). He also checked Sasha/Beyonce (I’m confused) about disrespecting Etta James and showing the white girl more resspect. This is a good one.

    Is Sandra trying to say that Beyonce’s perfume is the reason that Etta James was hospitalized? Anyways, I hope she gets well soon.

    @Sandra, approve my comment with the video where Comedian Paul Mooney checked Beyonce/Sasha for showing more respect toward the country white girl than Ms. Etta James.

    @Sandra, let me know what you think about what Paul Mooney said about Beyonce/Sasha?

  • http://thecubiclechick.com STLVixen

    Not sure if I will be trying the Bey fragrance out. Usually celeb fragrances are not ones I wear.

    Also, I read about Etta James’ horrible addiction to heroin and now prescription drugs. I hope she gets well very soon. The music community still needs you Etta!

    And what about True Star? Wasn’t that her fragrance with Tommy Hilfiger?

    Get well Ms. Etta and Daisy’s mother. I miss my maternal grandmother. That was my girl. At least she lived long enough to see me become an attorney. She worried that I would not ever get married. I wished she could have met my kids. She would be shocked that I am married with three children. She must have really been praying for me. :lol:

  • CivilEngineer

    Yea @Daisy…your grandmother’s still in my prayers.

    Etta James has been fighting addiction for what seems like her entire life. Get Well.

    @attorneymom….you seem a little to press/excited about someone “goin in” on Beyonce. Is it really that necessary *blankstare*

    @yvonne79… she was the spokesperson for Truestar and Diamonds by Armani. She was paid for her face. With Heat its her fragrance and she is the spokesperson

  • ReadTheBlog

    Damn, I’d even settle for a post about Hopz stank ass right about now – GEESH! So tired of Beyonce and Rihanna and the redundant post on the same blogs day after day.

    Although Rhymes With Snitch has verying stories, They posted those (supposed) pics of Tisha Campbells sister’s child, and dude saying he hit it but he was strapped up.
