Blogging For Q:

Q is for Queen Latifah:

      I've always liked Queen Latifah. I can remember taking my uncle's cd's (he had more than 200 artist in his collection, I'm sure). Queen Latifah would be among the artist I would hear my uncle listen to, so naturally I began listening to her too. Although I like, what some isrefer to as the "old skool Latifah",  I love the Queen Latifah now, after all, isn't life about progression? 

     I loved her in the television show Living Single, House Party, and one of my favorite movies of all time Set It Off Whether or not you're one of those sticklers who only love Queen Latifah when she's rapping about Unity or When she's acting; you can't deny her down to earth attitude. assions. No shame in that, right?
  You can't deny that she commands attention and respect and that's what I like about her. In my opinion, she's still the same Queen Latifah; it's just that it's a new age and with it we take on different interests and passions, Nothing wrong with that right?
   What I admire about Queen Latifah is that she is multi-talented. She doesn't just fit into one stand alone title. She's an all around entertainer, a business woman, etc...She's always stood up for women; especially black women and I love her for that. 

Queen Latifah in her own words:
I was taught from a young age that many people would treat me as a second-class citizen because I was African-American and because I was female."

" Look at people for an example, but then make sure to do things your way. Surround yourself with positive people."
