Promoting her upcoming tour and new thriller, Obsessed with Idris Elba and Ali Larter, Beyonce sat down with the AP for a Q&A about Etta James and Twitter.

Dubbing her Twitterholic sister Solange Knowles “the Twitter Queen”, the singer-actress says she’s just too old for the new social network.

“She told me about the twittering, but I don’t get it, I feel like I’m getting really old,” Beyonce said of her sister’s constant tweets. “I’m like, what? I don’t understand. Just call me.”

In addition to dishing on her tour (“I’ll work until my feet are blistered!”) and her new movie, where she plays a woman fighting to keep an obsessed woman away from her family (“You have to fight in your relationships!”), Beyonce also commented on Etta James’ harsh remarks about her inaugural ball performance of “At Last”.

“I played Etta James, so I did my research, I read her book,” she says diplomatically, “I was not at all surprised. That’s Etta. She’s hilarious!”

Beyonce on Barack Obama’s Win: ‘I Fell Asleep Crying and Smiling at the Same Time’

In order to watch history be made by President-Elect Barack Obama, singer Beyonce Knowles canceled a promotional tour in Japan for her upcoming album, I Am … Sasha Fierce.

“I said, ‘What am I doing? I’m completely making a bad decision,” she told the AP. “I have to go home, I’m gonna kill myself if I’m not home in America. I knew I needed to be here.”

Knowles, whose sister Solange has a 4-year-old son Daniel Julez, also expressed how Obama’s win affects her young nephew’s future.

“When we say [to Daniel], ‘You can do whatever, you can be whatever,’ it’s not cliche. You have no doubt that it’s not true,” she said. “I fell asleep crying and smiling at the same time. I woke up with mascara running and a smile on my face!”
