Chaka to Jesse:

You're a Butthead!

3/14/2007 5:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Not only did Chaka Khan skip a meet and greet with recent co-Grammy winners Tony Bennett and Stevie Wonder last night in Washington -- only to have a date with the Marlboro Man, she also dissed Rev. Jesse Jackson (behind his back) because he got in the way of her puffery.

Chaka Khan
TMZ spotted the D-I-V-A enjoying a cig near the Capitol before she performed "Tell Me Something Good" at an event honoring Wonder's wondrous songwriting when, suddenly, an assistant quickly ran up to her and whispered that Jackson was coming out to meet her.

"Oh no!" shouted Chaka. "I don't want to put this out." Still, she dashed the ash and turned all smiles when Jackson emerged from a building just seconds after the warning. After exchanging pleasantries, she even entered her digits into his Blackberry. Jackson left after a couple of minutes, shouting with a grin, "I'll call you soon, sugar."

"Jesus!" Chaka yelled as soon as Jackson disappeared from earshot. "I just wanted to smoke!" And then she lit up.

This is noteworthy because Jesse Jackson claims to speak for the entire race. Obviously, he doesn't. It just goes to show what a loser he is, and that people are afraid of him.

Look up the deal he worked out for his sons in Chicago with beverage distributors. He is a skank.

This self-appointed, low-down, adulterous, lying, scam-seeking, backstabbing and total dirtbag. This is what blacks have allowed for over 30 years to con, scam and swindle from them their future, their hopes and moral standards. Jesse Jackson has made millions of dollars telling blacks that all their problems are based on what whites have done to them. What he never want blacks to learn was for men to be strong leaders of their families, make education one of the most important thing a person can achieve, don't have babies out of wed-lock and make GOD the center of your life. Even though he's a fake reverend, we all know that GOD is not his life money is!!!!!!!

I had Chaka's limo driver in LA once on vacation. All he could talk about was wanting to get coke and how she loves it.

Oh here we go, mention anything about a black person and all the closet racist start spewing their venom.

This is a dumb story. Who gives a shit that the woman was smoking? The problem is you have morons who are trying to make this stupid story into some deep dilouge that has to do with race.

Stick to the story dumb-asses. We dont care about you racists pigs.

Ive seen Jesse Jackson be extremely rude to reporters.. So I guess what goes around comes around. Its pretty bad when someone thinks more of a cigarette than a person, though.

Why would she worry what Jackson thought of her smoking? Jackson's not a paragon of virtue -what with his child outside his marriage and his love of cameras that rivals Paris Hilton's and her ilk. Stories of Jackson's ego are legendary in my neck of the woods.
