Chaka Khan blasted Rolling Stone’s “Greatest Singers of All Time” list a few days ago, giving her honest opinion on musicians named above her.
When she was featured on “The Originals” podcast, the “Through the Fire” hitmaker was placed 29th out of 200 vocalists and lambasted the “blind bat b*tches” that ranked her.
What Did Chaka Khan Say About Rolling Stones’ Greatest Singers List?
Chaka became critical of various high-profile musical artists above and below her, including Adele, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, and even Beyoncé, after learning of the updated list, which was revealed on New Year’s Day.
Chaka Khan learnt about the ranking on the podcast episode and was told that the “Rolling In The Deep” hitmaker was ahead of her, and she said, “Okay, I quit.”
When she heard Mariah Carey was at the 5th spot, she said, “That must be payola or some s**t like that.”
When Chaka discovered that Mary J. Blige was ranked before her, she immediately said, “These b*****s are blind as motherf****ing bat! They need hearing aids!”
Chaka and Mary’s relationship has allegedly been rocky for decades, but they appear to have reconciled in recent years.

Nevertheless, Chaka Khan may have reversed her prior statements and offered an apology, claiming that the Queen of Funk was only forced to answer questions about who deserved to be on the list.
In a lengthy Instagram page, the Chicago native singer said, “Instead of questioning the need for such a list, I was pitted against other artists and I took the bait.”
“As artists, we are unfairly put into ‘boxes’, ‘categories’ or on ‘lists.’ Being an artist or musician is not a competition. It’s a gift, for which I am truly grateful.”
The 69-year-old went on to say that it was never her desire to harm or upset anybody, and that her primary goal was to empower others and herself.
