Chaka Khan Loses 60 Pounds… Looks Amazing

Avatar • May 11, 2012

Okay… so she’s not rocking the fro like she did back in the day, but Chaka Khan is an eternal natural hair style icon. Reader Jessie P. brought to my attention that the 59-year-old R&B/funk goddess recently shed 60 pounds and is looking fierce! The above picture is Chaka Khan performing in Atlanta last month. The picture below is of Chaka Khan performing on Good Morning America in 2008.

While the gorgeous diva would look beautiful at any weight, according to reports she shed the pounds to get a handle on her high blood pressure and diabetes. And to end this post with some eye candy, here is Chaka Khan in all her vintage natural glory:

Ladies, what do you think of Chaka’s new look?

She looks really good with the weight loss… she actually looks a little younger as well.

And as for her hair, most times when I watch old clips of her performing with Rufus it’s to look at her hair. Beautiful.

Nicki & Chaka could be twins. Same cheekbones, smile, height… And Chaka looks great! I def support making the effort to be more in control of your health.

One of my favorite singers of all time. She looks fantastic for her age, and as for the weight loss well done her. Niki Minaj does favor Chaka.

In that last picture, she instantly reminded me of Joy Bryant. maybe it’s just the hair.

I will never forget an interview I saw on CNN. The interviewer asked if anyone could every forget Whitney’s version of “I’m Every Woman. Valerie Simpson told him, hold on you treading on some dangerous ground there. That song was written for Chaka Khan. Effectively shut him up.

WOW! she looks beautiful! she was pretty when she was bigger but now that she lost all that weight you can really see her face now instead of looking at everything else… you know Nicki Manaj look like Chaka’s younger years.… 🙂 well whatever natural is for Nickii… lmao!
but her facial features with her long hair reminds me of her.

I’ve been completely in love with Chaka Khan since my High School days back in 1974–76. I still think no doubt, she is the most incredible and most beautiful woman I’ve ever known! Never seen her live except on TV, like the 1st time on VH1, Rufus feat. Chaka Khan — Tell me something good…1975 I think… Those were the good old days

Nikki Minaj doesn’t have the class and doesn’t come close to her beauty or personality. In my own humble opinion…

if its best for her health & keeps her around us longer, I say good for her! I think she looks amazing! we are losing way too any legendary artists to health issues that could be avoided. Now we need to get the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin to drop 100 lbs b/c shes out of control!
