Chaka Khan Goes Off on Adele, Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige in Recent Podcast Interview

Chaka Khan never disappoints whenever she opens her mouth, whether with her singing or her straight talk. She had some candid words for some singers who were listed in a recent list by Rolling Stone.

In an exclusive podcast episode by Los Angeles Magazine, the legendary soul singer had some spicy words for several of the top singers on Roling Stone‘s “The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time” list.

Khan was on the latest episode of a podcast that Los Angeles Magazine puts out called The Originals. While speaking to the host, Andrew Goldman, she finds out that Rolling Stone has placed her at number 29 on their 200 Greatest Singers List. As evidenced by her response, not only did she not have a clue, but she seemingly did not care either.

“I didn’t even know what the hell you were talking about, so obviously this don’t mean a great deal to me. These people don’t quantify or validate me in any way,” the soon-to-be 70-year-old singer.

After curiosity got the best of her, she questioned who else was on the list and at what position.

When discovering that the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin came in at the top spot, she replied, “As she f**king should be!” But, when finding out that Mariah Carey was number five, the shade was immediate as she stated, “That must be payola or some shit like that.”

When the name Joan Baez came up as getting on the list at #189, she gave her a backhanded compliment by remarking, “let’s be honest, the bitch cannot sing. Now, she was a good writer.” And with Adele sliding in at number 22, she exclaimed, “Okay, I quit.”

She saved her best venom for Mary J. Blige who she has had words for in the past. She has allegedly dissed Blige in the past when she was said to have introduced the legendary 1975 Rufus ballad, Sweet Thing as “the song Mary J. Blige f**ked up.” Blige covered the song for her 1992 debut album.

When hearing that Blige was rated over her at number 25, she dissed the editors at Rolling Stone by saying, “They are blind as a motherf**king bat! They need hearing aids…These must be the children of Helen Keller!”
