Chaka Khan is finally speaking out about her thoughts on Clive Davis’annual pre-Grammy gala, put on just hours after Whitney Houston’s body was found in the same Beverly Hilton hotel. She sat down with CNN’s Piers Morgan Monday night to express her disapproval.
Chaka said she flew out from Miami Saturday afternoon to make the party in Los Angeles, but learned of Houston’s death after exiting the plane. She said she couldn’t put on makeup or get dressed, let alone attend the event where her close friend’s lifeless body was lying several floors up.
“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,” she said. “I don’t understand how that party went on.”
