Beyonce's plan for world domination continues:
Beyonce has revealed the song she plans to serenade the Obamas with in their first dance as America's first couple _ and no, she won't be telling the president to "put a ring on it."Listen, I have nothing against Beyonce--I buy her CDs and appreciate her talent and work ethic, but can she just go away for awhile? Yunno, take a break and let us miss her for awhile? I swear one can't go a month without Beyonce coming out with a new movie or album or clothing line or commercial or tour or some news about whether or not she's really married (thankfully, thats over with). Now she's sneaks into the political world just to rain on Barack Obama's parade. I know Obama's homie Jennifer Hudson understandably couldn't make it, but what, was the more talented (and better singer) Alicia Keys too busy or something? How about Mary J? Not that I was planning on watching any of Barack's $150million Inauguration festitivies anyway, but being on Beyonce overload that I am, now I know I'm not watching.
She will sing the Etta James classic "At Last."
Beyonce portrayed the blues great in the recent film "Cadillac Records" and sings the song in that movie.
Beyonce will sing to the Obamas at the Neighborhood Ball Tuesday night.
In a statement, Beyonce said: "I am so honored that I will be performing for President Obama and the first lady. To sing `At Last' while they have their first dance is a dream come true. I could not be more honored and excited that they have asked me to be part of this moment in history."
It was revealed on Thursday that Beyonce would be serenading the Obamas at the event. But the song choice was not revealed by the Presidential Inaugural Committee.
