Chaka Khan Is Apologizing To Any Female Artist She May Have Offended During Her LA Magazine Interview
Last week, during an appearance with Andrew Goldman on LA Magazine’s The Originals podcast, cranky crooner Chaka Khan was informed about Rolling Stone’s 200 Greatest Singers list, and she did not hold back with her opinions. During her chat, Chaka discussed everything from her friend Mary J. Blige‘s potential overnight activities before fucking up the cover of her song “Sweet Thing” to suggesting Mariah Carey‘s career is based on the time-honored tradition of payola. She also had some very choice words for Adele, Joan Baez, and Debbie Harry as well. But now that Chaka’s had a nap, she realizes her words came across a bit on the mean side. And now she’s singing a new tune that should be titled “My Bad Y’all” because her apology tour just kicked off over on Instagram.
Chaka Khan Blasts Rolling Stone’s Greatest Singers List By Offering Her Thoughts On Mary J. Blige, Adele, Mariah Carey, And More
Rolling Stone‘s 200 Greatest Singers list was a huge flop because they failed to include THE GREAT SINGUH IN DA WORLD Celine Dion. However, they got a few names right, even if one of those singers, cantankerous chanteuse Chaka Khan, believes the entire list wasn’t worth her time to read. We already know she’s prepared to throw hands the next time she sees Kanye West. And now there’s a brand new Soul Train line of folks, including Adele, Mariah Carey, and Mary J. Blige doing the Running Man towards Chaka’s house to ask her about her most recent comments. Because Chaka has apparently retired from singing to become a librarian because of the way she reads these girls like a best-selling novel.
Chaka Khan Wants Every Singer Who Uses Auto-tune To Stop Singing And Start Working At The Post Office
The era of powerhouse singers from back in the day is probably long gone, and now the only thing you need to be successful is a skilled engineer who can make you sound like you’re singing through a broken metal fan. R&B Legend Chaka Khan knows this all too well and has a suggestion for the new singers coming up behind her. We already know how displeased she was when Kanye West took her voice and made her sound like one of the mice from Cinderella, but it doesn’t just stop there. Chaka wants anyone who uses Auto-tune to immediately leave the studio and fill out an application for the post office because singing is the wrong career choice, and they should stick to delivering mail instead of attempting to deliver high notes.
Chaka Khan Is Still Angry With Kanye West For Making Her Sound Like A Chipmunk On His Song “Through The Wire”
Years ago, before creating overpriced slides allegedly inspired by Adidas and The Jetsons, Kanye West used to make music. His first major hit as a rapper was the song Through The Wire where he took the Chaka Khan classic Through The Fire (which was written by David Foster, Tom Keane, and Cynthia Weil) and flipped it into one of the best songs in his catalog. Through The Wire ushered in the era of the Old Kanye but unfortunately, Chaka has never been a fan of it. And since we’re on the subject of sampling thanks to Beyonce, Chaka Khan has said that she’s still angry about how Kanye took her voice and made her sound like The Chipettes on speed.
Chaka Khan On Working With Ariana Grande (Again): “She’s Good On Her Own”
It’s been a while since we’ve had a proper musical icon tell us exactly how it is by smacking down the hopes and dreams of young pop stars everywhere. The one and only Chaka Khan––10x Grammy winner, perennial Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominee, funk/soul legend––has been DOING IT for years. She’s seen it all, she’s heard it all. So, by now, the 67-year-old is comfortable enough settling into a routine that does not involve collaborating with any new hot young things. Luckily for us, she’s not afraid to say so. And while the tension over this latest “exchange” between Chaka and Ariana Grande is not quite at the level of Aretha vs. Patti, or Mariah vs. J.Lo, or Dionne vs. Beyonce (yet), it’s still delicious and thick enough to drizzle over pancakes.
The Winner Of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Has Been Crowned
Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race have put up with a lot during season 12––and I’m not just talking about THAT one queen who nearly ruined everything by serving rotted, stanky CATfish and got her ass edited out of the show. There was also that mostly sloppy Snatch Game that got some people hot and bothered––oh, and then there was Chaka Kahn not knowing what a merkin (or, frankly, what Drag Race) is. Well it’s all over now, and RuPaul has chosen our next queen––just in time for the premiere of Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars on June 5th (oh please, what else are you gonna watch during quarantine?)
