Bravo to Chaka Khan!! Believes Clive Davis Should Have Canceled His Annual Grammy Party

Chaka Khan


I don’t know about anyone else but I sure was disappointed that music mogul Clive Davis elected to carry on with his annual Grammy party even though his protege lay dead in a hotel suite above his party. At least Chaka Khan had the infinite wisdom and respect to opt out of attending the event and she made it clear to CNN’s Piers Morgan that the whole idea of going forward with it was insane.

We purposely decided not to post any stories on the event because, in our opinion, it was clearly in poor taste and something that should have not happened.

“I thought that was complete insanity,” Chaka Khan told Piers Morgan on Piers Morgan Tonight. “I don’t know what could motivate a person, to have a party, in a building, where the person, whose life he had influenced so enormously, and whose life had been affected by her…I don’t understand how that party went on.”

As reported early Sunday, Khan also pulled out of a planned tribute to Houston. Claiming it was simply too soon, Khan made the announcement that she would not join Jennifer Hudson via Twitter.


“As I grieve the loss of my friend and “little sister”, I don’t feel it appropriate to perform at this time,” Khan wrote. “Continue to pray for the family.”

The purpose of a red carpet is to show off the latest fashions and do interviews, but how does anyone with full knowledge that Whitney Houston was laying in a bathtub dead from what some believe was the result of a possible overdose on prescription drugs believe it was appropriate to attend the party? Are we that superficial as a people? Once again, our prayers go out to Bobbi Kristina and everyone who truly cared about Whitney Houston.
