Chaka Khan does not think too highly of Kanye West's classic single, "Through The Wire," calling it "stupid."

The song sample Chaka's song, "Through The Fire," and Ye hit her up to ask her permission to use the song.

During an interview with Andy Cohen on 'Watch What Happens Live,' the iconic songstress said the following:

"He called me when he just got out of the hospital. He said, 'You were so instrumental in my healing process. I changed the words a little bit to the song but I had to eat through a wire. Jaws wired shut through a straw.' It meant that much to me. It really got my heart, tugged at my string. I was like, yeah, use it. Then when it came out, I was pissed," Khan said. 

"It was a little insulting. Not insulting, I thought it was stupid! If I'd known he was gonna do that, I would have said, 'Hell no.'"

Oh, dear.
