(50 Cent and Chaka Khan at VH1 Divas)
By Jocelyn Vena
On Sunday night, some of the biggest divas in the game hit the stage at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC for the latest installment of “VH1 Divas.” This year the show honored soul music, as well as the late, great Amy Winehouse. And while the show itself, which airs Monday on Vh1, will certainly have everyone talking thanks to performances from Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott and more, it was two people who hit the carpet together before the taping that had everyone scratching their heads–50 Cent and Chaka Khan.
When 50 Cent and divalicious music legend Chaka Khan appeared together before the show, taking pictures and snuggling up against one another, it seemed like such an odd pairing that MTV News had to investigate further. This is what we found out.
Calling it the “most exciting situation,” Fif added, “We’re working together. We’re working on a project, hit music.” While the two remained pretty tight-lipped about this project, Chaka added that whatever it is, it’s “big things.”
We then had to know just how these two even know one another and he happily explained. “I reached out to her to make sure I can actually come with her. This is exciting for me,” he said. “I’ve been wanting to come hang out with her. Totally, you know you need to stand next to the fire to keep warm. You see what I’m saying. It’s getting cold out here. It’s wintertime. It’s really exciting to be around people that have the same artistic integrity, people you want to be associated with.”
While we wait with bated breath for their supposed collaboration, we suggest you check out the interview. It’s something, to say the least.
