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."
