When legendary R&B singer, songwriter, and actress Stephanie Mills was asked about her take on the state of music, she kept it all the way real.

"I think they want R&B but they don't want it from us," she answered.

Mills shared her thoughts on the state of R&B during a stop at TVOne's new daily talk show Sister Circle, which features reality star Quad Webb-Lunceford, Grammy-nominated R&B singer Syleena Johnson, sports reporter Rashan Ali, and stand-up comedienne Kiana Dancie as hosts. Taking the blueprint from the daytime talk show The View, the show discusses hot topics in news and entertainment.

Mills, who played Dorothy in the original Broadway run of The Wiz, didn't hold back with her answer when the subject of R&B was broached.

"They want it from Adele and Justin Timberlake and those people, they don't want it from us," the platinum-selling singer continued.

Mills further went on to make the comparison with other R&B artists who are talented but have received less praise for their music, such as Kenny Lattimore.
