Beyonce Knowles on Marriage

The 'Single Ladies' singer kept her nuptials to rapper Jay-Z secret because she wanted to "cherish" the commitment of marriage rather than the big day itself.

She said: "I think that people can put way too much emphasis on the day. It's just so temporary and it goes away in a second.

And then you have this commitment you made, and I don't know if people cherish it as much as they should."

Beyonce - who married Jay-Z in a secret ceremony last April - admits she has always been a private person and never wanted an elaborate wedding. She explained to Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "I've never been the girl who went to a wedding and thought, 'Oooh, I want to get married.' So I didn't want something big and dramatic.

That doesn't mean it was anticlimactic or anything, but I think it's good to be somebody who thinks about the reality of things."

Etta James hatin on Beyonce Knowles

Beyoncé's smashing rendition of Etta James' classic "At Last" - the ballad accompanying President and Mrs. Obama's first dance at the inaugural's Neighborhood Ball - was roundly praised by almost everyone who heard it.
Everyone, that is except for James. The veteran R&B singer called out Beyoncé big time during a Seattle concert last week, Us magazine reports.

"You know that woman he [Barack Obama] had singing for him, singing my song - she's gonna get her -- whooped.

"The great Beyoncé ... But I can't stand Beyoncé," she added. "She has no business up there, singing up there on a big ol' president day ... singing my song that I've been singing forever."

The irony to this whole smackdown, of course, is that Beyoncé played James in the recent movie "Cadillac Records." Judging by photos of the pair at its November premiere, there was nothing but love in the air.

By the way, James apparently isn't so keen on the 44th president as well. "You guys know your president, right?" she said at the same Seattle show. "You know the one with the big ears? Wait a minute, he ain't my president, he might be yours, he ain't my president."
