    R.I.P. Etta




    Legendary R&B singer Etta James -- famous for her hit songs "At Last" and "Something's Got a Hold on Me" -- has died.

    The singer -- whose health was on a rapid decline the last few years -- was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010. She also suffered from dementia and Hepatitis C.

    Her live-in doctor announced the singer was "terminally ill" last month, after her leukemia was declared incurable.

    Etta died at a hospital in Riverside, California ... her manager confirmed.

    She won 6 Grammys in her lifetime -- including Best Jazz Vocal Performance in 1994 -- and was voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    And how cool is this? Etta's in the top 10 right now -- Flo Rida heavily samples her on his hit, "Good Feeling." Etta was 73.

    Yes. My mourning occurred when she lost her health. The rest was just a waiting game.

    Her brother Dennis made me laugh when he said that crap about having hot monkey love with "Harold Stern" on that cerebral palsy telethon. :D

    I wish I could post pictures here from my phone. The tax preparing store around the corner has a woman dressed up every year like the statue of liberty and she stands next to the highway waving cars into The Liberty Tax Store. This year it's a colored woman.

    SHE must be the "wretched refuse" the inscription on the statue is referring to
