As reported earlier today, the legendary singer Etta James died from leukemia this morning, and people all over the world are remembering the singer’s 73 years in different ways, including her fellow celebs. In fact, many have already taken the time to go on Twitter to pay tribute and mourn the iconic figure, praising James' work and all that she did for the music industry. She may have left us, but she'll never be forgotten.

Additionally, Beyoncé posted a special message on her website in honor of Etta James:
"This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time. I am so fortunate to have met such a queen. Her musical contributions will last a lifetime. Playing Etta James taught me so much about myself, and singing her music inspired me to be a stronger artist. When she effortlessly opened her mouth, you could hear her pain and triumph. Her deeply emotional way of delivering a song told her story with no filter. She was fearless, and had guts. She will be missed."
Rest in peace, Etta James. The world will never be the same.

The funnyman had a temporary triple crown put in his mouth, but is returning to his specialist next week (begs23Jan12) to have a permanent replacement fitted.
In a post on his Twitter.com page on Friday morning, he writes, "Hell's teeth & a bucket of blood. 3 hour session at the dentist coming up. There isn't enough (anti-anxiety drug) Xanax in the world to prepare for this."
And updating fans later on in the day, he added: "Well that went better than expected. Temporary triple crown fitted on bottom row. Real ones installed next week. Actually fell asleep."
Fry wasn't the only star who visited a dentist on Friday - actress Kirstie Alley also had an appointment with her specialist to undergo root canal surgery.
The former Cheers star needs a filling for a severe cavity on one of her teeth, but she's terrified of having the deep drilling procedure required.
So she took to her Twitter.com page on Tuesday (17Jan12) to ask her followers for tips on effective alternative remedies.
Alley wrote, "Good Morning!!!! Who needs a root canal??? I do!! I Do!!... ugh. Hey!! any great dentists on here with advice?? Pros & Cons of root canals... and other solutions?? Love an alternative... NOT extraction."
The actress combats her nerves on chat shows by brushing back her hair and twirling strands and the habit has become a talking point for family members and friends, who have urged her to stop.
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in America - her first TV chat of the New Year - on Friday (06Jan12), Alley sat on her hands and told the host, "I always touch my hair in interviews... and so I have a $1,000 bet that I won't touch my hair more than twice. I have two touches."
DeGeneres showed her guest images of her touching her hair in TV interviews and Alley admitted it has become a very bad habit.
She explained, "A friend of mine counted once that I touched my hair 26 times in one interview... I'm neurotic; when I laugh... I laugh and flick."
The actress, who won the bet, also sported her new look on the show, revealing she has had to darken her locks to play an Italian-American woman in a new TV show.
"I'm thinking an ugly man might be the solution... I'm talking about butt ugly, because I go for really handsome men and I think butt ugly, they'll be appreciative." Former Cheers star Kirstie Alley is considering lowering her standards to find a mate.
The Look Who's Talking star will reach the milestone on 12 January (12), and during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Alley told the host, "For my birthday I want an Aston Martin and a tattoo."
DeGeneres obliged by setting up tattoo artist Dan Smith backstage and Alley went under the needle to have her children's initials inked on her right wrist.
The show will air in the U.S. on Friday (06Jan12).
"This has turned into the Happiest Christmas of my life..my children are flourishing & my friends are too!!.. Daddio is doing great! Blessed!" Actress Kirstie Alley is grateful to have her father in good health following his hospitalisation for pneumonia last month (Nov11).
The former Cheers star alerted the authorities after burglars gained entry into her home in Wichita.
She took to her Twitter.com page to tell fans about the scare and warn off any other possible intruders, while threatening to post photos of the apprehended suspects online.
In a series of posts, she writes, "Dear persons who have broken into Wichita house for the 3rd time... Next time (you are) gonna be met with a big dog and an even bigger shotgun... warned.
"We got them on film this time... will Tweet the photos... smile. (Three break-ins) in three days!! Cop & dog on site now."
John Travolta's actress wife has shed 39 pounds (17.7 kilograms) since giving birth to their son Benjamin last year (10) and Preston has now hailed the former Cheers star's Organic Liaison products for helping her get back into tip-top shape.
During an appearance on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Friday (09Dec11), she said, "You know my best friend, Kirstie Alley, she created a programme that is so brilliant. It is the first USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) certified organic weight-loss product, but she has all of these products. And they give you energy - there is a cleansing one; one to relax you; one to de-stress you; there are so many different things... and a programme online that takes you by the hand and leads you through it. Just to eat healthfully and exercise, but it's brilliant. And it works.
"I actually took my time purposefully because I really wanted to. You can do it much more quickly, (but) I'm not into the three or four weeks, ...I did it over the course of eight months. You can eat what you want as well. It's not so restrictive and crazy... It really is an entire programme that allows you to be that weight for however long. You can keep it for 10, 20 years. The fad diets - they don't work. You lose weight, you gain it right back - this works."
