Queen Latifah Talks Motherhood, Wants To Adopt Baby


(AllHipHop News) Queen Latifah may be busy building out her Miami film studio and producing her upcoming talk show, but the rapper/actress is also making time to become a mother.

Latifah, born Dana Owens, made the revelations during an upcoming interview with More Magazine that features her on the cover.

“I’m definitely going to adopt – or have – a child,” Queen Latifah said. “I’ve wanted to adopt since I was 17 or 18-years-old.”

During the candid interview, Queen Latifah explained the impact that the death of her brother had early on in her career.

Lance Owens died almost 20 years ago, in 1992, after an accident on a motorcycle that Queen Latifah had purchased for him.

In her autobiography “Ladies First: Revelations of a Strong Woman,” Latifah revealed that Lance’s death lead to drug abuse and depression.

In her new interview with More Magazine, Latifah explained that since her brother’s untimely death, she has learned valuable life lessons.

“As my Aunt Elaine says, ‘You never get over it, but you get through it’,” Queen Latifah said. “I think the most important thing I’ve learned is to not stop living. I know for a fact that my brother would not want me to stay right there, stuck in that misery.”

<a href="http://“I think the most important thing I’ve learned is to not stop living,” says the Chicago actress who often wears her late brother’s motorcycle keys around her neck. “As my Aunt Elaine says, ‘You never get over it, but you get through it’. I think the most important thing I’ve learned is to not stop living. I know for a fact that my brother would not want me to stay right there, stuck in that misery.”

Queen Latifah is currently producing a new daytime TV talk show with Will Smith’s Overbrook Productions, that will debut in 2013.

Additionally, she is slated to star in the flick “Joyful Noise” with Dolly Parton and KeKe Palmer this January.

      Did you grow up seeing your parents have sex? LOL

    • Studies have shown it doesn’t affect children but I can’t see how it wouldn’t. If you have two fag dads, I guarantee you’re going to take shit everyday at school for it unless you’re yoked out. Eventually that will effect self-esteem not to mention your perception of your sexual orientation.

  • Hey queen, you know you can have a baby for cheap. Just hollar at me. Ill bust one in ya.

  • I respect Queen Latifah for her amazing contribution to Hip-Hop, Acting, and hollywood…But after all this time you would think that she would just come out of the closet…It is a slap in the face to the gay community.

  • Latifah stays winning!

    Of the many things that I respect Latifah for, (and there are many), I love the fact that she has kept her personal life closely guarded. Every fool who posts about her being gay is a testament to how good of a job she has done with keeping her private life private.
