    Valentine's Day is nearly a week away—where is the love in Hollywood?

    First, Hilary Duff snaps nasty about Faye Dunaway. Then Stephen King admits he doesn't think much of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's writing chops.

    Now R&B icon Etta James has some choice words to say about Beyoncé Knowles and her "At Last" performance at President Barack Obama's Inaugural Ball.

    "I can't stand Beyoncé," she told a Seattle crowd.

    "You know your president, the one with the big ears? He ain't my president—had that woman singing for him at his inauguration. She's going to get her ass whooped...she had no business up there, singing up there on a big ol' president day, gonna be singing my song that I've been singing forever."

    Yvette Noel-Schure, Mrs. Jay-Z's rep, said the singer had "no comment" on James' rant. For the record, Beyoncé played James in the recent film Cadillac Records.  The "Single Ladies" star has previously said that the soulful songstress had nice things to say about her portrayal. Is she sure about that?
