As phony as the $2 wig on her headWow. What an abrupt turnaround. What happened to make Etta take back what she said? Did B send Solange down there to straighten her out? Holy cow, I hope not. All that pent-up resentment Solange has for being treated like a stepchild is going to erupt like Vesuvius. No one is safe. No one.
Whatever they used to beat Miss Etta into submission worked, because today she was singing a different tune than the one she sang in Cleveland. She wasn't really mad. No, sir. She was making a joke. See, she's always been a jokester. Says Etta, "Even as a little child, I've always had that comedian kind of attitude...That's probably what went into it."
You'll be glad they didn't pound all the vinegar out of her, though. When asked if she could have done it better than the mighty B, she said, "I think so. That's a shame to say that." Sure, because now Solange will come back, and this time she might even bring one of her parents. Be afraid, Etta. Be very afraid.
