Chaka Khan along with Kanye West, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, El Debarge & Jill Scott performed at this years Essence Festival in New Orleans this weekend.  After El Debarge performed, Chaka took the stage and in the middle of her set, talked about her past drug addictions.

We are not sure if maybe the message was for El Debarge who recently fell off the wagon and was back in rehab, but Chaka talked about it.  It was about the song "Troubled Little Angel" and this is what Chaka said.

"This next song is a song I wrote but I don't remember writing it because I was high,"  "That was then, this is now, I'm seven years clean."

Chaka also talked in the past to Mary J. Blige about drug addictions and attributes Chaka to getting clean. 

We are proud of Chaka and hope she stays on the road to recovery.-Dr.FB

Janet Jackson will be headlining the Essence Music Festival July 2nd in New Orleans. 

This will be Janet's first full concert performance since the passing of her brother Michael Jackson in June of last year.

Also, we are told there are talks of Miss Jackson getting back on the road on a tour of epic proportions.  The talks are in the early baby stages but if it comes to fruition....it is going to be amazing! The doc's lips are sealed.

Janet Jackson is set to be on Good Day L.A. Today to promote her new Tyler Perry movie "Why Did I Get Married Too."-Dr.FB
