Chaka Khan says she has no interest in collaborating with any more female artists — ever.

The legendary singer, known as the "Queen of Funk," recently gave a wide-ranging interview to the YouTube channel VladTV, during which she was asked whether she would collaborate with Ariana Grande again.

"No, f— her," Khan quipped. "Nah, she's all right, she's good on her own. She don't need [me] — plus, I don't want to sing with another woman. I ain't got nothing to say with a woman. You say it by yourself."

"We ain't gonna talk about no man," she continued. "We not gonna do none of that stuff. It's not happening." 

"I'm not gonna do a song with no heifer," Khan added.

Khan and Grande performed a duet on the song "Nobody" for the 2019 "Charlie's Angels" soundtrack. The 67-year-old singer previously described it as "cute."

"It's a song, you know, about 'Charlie's Angels,'" she said in an interview at Variety's 2019 Power of Women luncheon. "It's not gonna change the world, okay? It's a good song in the movie."

Before changing her mind about female collaborations, Khan has also worked with singers such as Mary J. Blige, Whitney Houston, Anastacia, and Lulu.

The "I'm Every Woman" songstress did have positive things to say about R&B vocalist Lalah Hathaway, but reiterated that she'd have no interested in a collaboration.

"I love Lalah Hathaway. That's a bad singing b—-," Khan told VladTV. "Now what do I want to do with her? She got her own world, like I got my own planet. So, uh-uh. And we can just effect each other, planetary-like. It's beautiful enough for me."
