Chaka Khan Shows A Lot Of Leg At BET Awards

It's time for the baring of the leg!

Chaka Khan posed in the iconic leg demonstration, a la Angelina Jolie, at the BET Awards on Sunday looking ready to PAR-TAY.

The Queen of Funk donned a tight black fitting dress, with a slit that went all the way up to her unmentionables, paired with Betsey Johnson heels.

We don't know what's more puzzling - Chaka's red highlights, long chain earrings, body hugging attire, or her limb popping out!

Why must the singer do this to us?

Chaka Khan Has Diabetes!

So sad!

Chaka Khan, 59, recently learned that she has diabetes.

This otherwise sad diagnosis was actually the kick in the pants she needed to get fit and start losing some weight.

Also, winning custody of her granddaughter has made her more determined to get healthy and she's already on the road to success! She's lost an incredible 60 pounds!

How'd she do it? Fasting and eating a vegan diet! And more:

"I had diabetes type two and high blood pressure. I adopted my 10-year-old granddaughter last year. I have to be there for her. I knew I couldn't go out like this so I just fasted for, like, a month, then I went vegan and went off meats and all dairy and anything with eyes. If I have a craving for a little baked fish or something I might eat it. But that's about it. I've mostly been doing a lot of high-protein foods and a lot of vegetables and exercise. I felt like I need to heal my body, so I would just fast and eat no meat, no dairy. I've never been a fan of meat, dairy and sugar. And when I developed diabetes last year I said, 'Oh OK, I'm not going to be here long. A change is coming.' So I started getting my mindset, then I started the fasting."

It's all about diet!

Exercise is so good for you but it really is so much about diet.

Way to get fit, gurl!

The real tragedy here, like so many others that we've lost before her, is that it seems like this loss could have been prevented.

At least, according to Chaka Khan.

The icon, who herself is a recovering addict, spoke on Piers Morgan Tonight about the loss of whom she considered to be her "little sister," Whitney Houston, and she believes the troubled singer's death could have been prevented, if she had someone with her who could have kept her away from substance abuse.

She explains:
