Remember a couple of months ago when Rolling Stones released their list of the 200 Greatest Singers of All Time?

Celine Dion fans were up in arms because the Power of Love singer didn't make the list.

Well, it turns out Chaka Khan is none too pleased with the list either... even though she's on it.

The I'm Every Woman singer had some choice words about Rolling Stones' rankings on the latest episode of Los Angeles Magazine Presents: The Originals podcast with Andrew Goldman. At the conclusion of the hour-long podcast, Khan revealed she had not read the list, so Goldman enlightened her of her number 29 spot.

Khan was in agreement with Aretha Franklin's number one position on the list. But then things took a turn as Khan did not hold back her disapproval of some of the artists that landed ahead of her.

Of Mariah Carey's number five spot, Khan snarked:

"That must be payola or some sh*t like that."

And of Beyoncé landing at number eight, she shared:

"I don't have anything to say about Beyoncé. She's a great singer. She really has [the] opportunity to be a great singer."
"She has what it takes. She got the chops. She does."

After Goldman revealed Adele ranked 22nd, the 10-time-Grammy-winner sighed:

"I quit."

But then she went off when she learned Mary J. Blige fared better than her at number 25.

"You know what? That's why I feel the way I do."
"These are some blind bat b*tches. These b*tches are blind as a motherf**king bat!"
"They need hearing aids. They don't have hearing aids. They have no eyes. They have no ears."
"You know what? These must be the children of Helen Keller."

You can listen to the segment below.

A few listeners were shocked by some of the singer's assessments.

And Carey's fans rushed to defend their idol.

But many agreed with Khan's stance on the rankings.

At least we can all agree on Aretha, though.
