Ouch! Chaka Khan Disses Mariah Carey & Mary J. Blige Over “Greatest Singer” List: “[Rolling Stone] Needs Hearing Aids”

Published: Wednesday 1st Mar 2023 by Rashad

It’s been months since the good folks at ‘Rolling Stone’ ruffled the feathers a many-a-diva’s fan base for their ill-received ranking of the ‘200 Greatest Singers Ever.’

And while some saw their supporters take to social media to share their disdain, others (namely Celine Dion fans) took action by protesting at the mag’s headquarters (as we reported here).

The latest to nab headlines for giving the tally a royal thumbs down is Queen of Funk Chaka Khan – who not only slammed her position on the list (#29) but also dissed a few of her fellow divas who landed ahead of her on it.

Hop inside to see what she said that has Adele, Mary J. Blige, and Mariah Carey fans (affectionately called #Lambs) in a bit of a tizzy.


As revealed in a recent interview with ‘The Originals’ podcast, the ‘Sweet Thing’ singer didn’t exactly have the sweetest things to say when she was quizzed on her thoughts about the ‘Rolling Stone’ list.

“I didn’t even know what the hell you were talking about, so obviously this don’t mean a great deal to me,” she told interviewer Andrew Goldman about the ‘RS’ ranking. “These people don’t quantify or validate me in any way.”

Renown for her candor as much as her soaring vocals, Khan – despite suggesting the list didn’t validate her – still seemed perturbed by her placement relative to some other divas.

When it was revealed Adele ranked #22 (seven spots above her), Chaka replied, “Okay, I quit.”

“That must be payola or some shit like that,” the ‘I’m Every Woman’ belter said in response to Carey’s listing at #5.

The biggest diss came when Goldman shared the 69-year-old’s on-and-off-again friend Mary J. Blige was printed in the #25 spot.

“They are blind as a motherfucking bat! They need hearing aids…These must be the children of Helen Keller,” Khan exclaimed.

    Weird. She did a song with Mary that won a Grammy….

  6. True Tea March 2, 2023

    Well Chaka is Thee ORIGINAL Powerhouse Vocalist.

    People often overlook Chaka as a Vocalist because she’s a Funk/Disco Queen.

    • True Tea March 2, 2023

      LOVE Chaka BTW!

      Miss POWERHOUSE Club Music.

    • Clarenceee March 2, 2023

      She’s a male identified, insecure hating ass raging coke head. She came for Whitney too when she remade I’m Every Woman. Chaka sounds a mess these days so there’s that.

      • Tee March 2, 2023

        I don’t where you got your information from, but put the lies in the back room because Chaka had nothing but rave praises for Whitney when she did the remake; and still says it. She was in the video and sang it on stage with Whiney.

    Idk why Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin 🍑 always gets kissed so heavy…

    Neither are amazing vocally and should not be top 10 as much as Taylor Swift shouldn’t be on the list at all. 😆 #FAIL

    • Petti LaBelle March 2, 2023

      This coming from a Beyonce fan!!!

      Stevie Wonder is one of the most prolific songwriters EVERRRR!!! Not to mention his beautiful vocals that have inspired generations of male vocalists.

      Same with Aretha. A child prodigy. Played piano by ear! Both are PIONEERS. Not just in R&B/soul music but music period!!

      I’m gonna stop there because what’s understood doesn’t need to be explained.

      You gotta be trolling!

    • J McKin March 2, 2023

      You must be high! Stevie Wonder is a great vocalist. And, Aretha is incomparable. You have got to be young and immature to not know the greatness of Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin.

    • Beyonces foot March 2, 2023

      Stfu fat b****. Aretha and Stevie s*** on Beyonce and her mid music

    • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 March 2, 2023

  9. SNF March 2, 2023

    Ms Khan the screaming and hollering you do puts you in the same boat. Just because you are decades older don’t mean you can out sing anyone. You opinion is your opinion but I’ve heard you hit way more sour notes than a little bit.

  10. Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 March 2, 2023

    Chaka dear, fire your drug dealer lmaooooooooooo…..Mary was cute, but bringing up Mariah? Auntie, bye bye 😂 Mariah can sing CIRCLES around everyone BUT Whitney and Aretha! 💯 Still love you tho lol
