The 60-year-old red-headed beauty isn’t the first “old school” diva that’s not exactly Beyoncé friendly. Remember when Aretha Franklin went in on her for calling Tina Turner “the queen?”
How about when the late Etta James let the world know how pissed she was because it was Beyoncé instead of her singing ”At Last,” her signature song, at President Obama’s first term inauguration ball.
And now we have Chaka seemingly throwing shade Beyoncé’s way. It happened recently when an interviewer – while exchanging pleasantries with Ms. Khan – told her she looked “absolutely flawless, like Beyoncé.” Well, Chaka’s response says it all.
However, despite Khan’s interesting facial response, the diva denies shading Queen B, she tweeted:
“With my girl @Ledisi at the SHADE FREE @essencemag Black Women in Hollywood event. Did you catch that, tabloids?!?”
“@Beyonce Sorry you had to be the target of a slow news day. You know I have nothing but LOVE for you! Keep handling your business!!”
