Queen Latifah

Hip-Hop Rumors: Wait, So Queen Latifah Didn't Come Out?

Last month, Queen Latifah headlined the Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride Festival and during her set, she was quoted as saying a few things that many took as her implying that she was “coming out of the closet.” The online media ran with it, and many people reported that she had indeed finally come out of the closet.

Well, Queen Latifah wants you to know that she was misconstrued. Check out what she told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview:

“That definitely wasn’t the case. I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.”

Although Latifah didn’t admit to being a lesbian, she still showed support for the gay community, saying:

“To me, doing a gay pride show is one of the most fun things. My first show that paid more than $10,000 was in a gay club on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco. Tupac happened to be in town, so he came to kick it with me. This was the early ’90s. And the boys were like, ‘Take your shirt off, Tupac!’ He wasn’t doing that. But we had a blast in there.”

Well, there you have it. Queen Latifah is not gay, and those women you always see her around…yeah, those are just her friends.

  • Yeah , ok, what about the dudes you “DON’T” see her around with?
    Latifah is too fly to not have dudes chasing her from Brick city to Cali.

    Still, it don’t matter , she drops hits like ” UNITY “.

    Gay or not , she is str8’er than many dudes in the industry.

      • EL_BARK

        Negro please,
        Cut that charles barkley spin move shet the fuk out.

        So now its okay for straight men to go to gay clubs now?
        All because ya boy pac did it????
        Now this is acceptable type behavior, like wezzy kissing another grown man.

        Come on???????? Forget the fact that pac had feminite mannerism as is.
        The nose ring. Bandana, the putting on the wig, & acting like a lady.
        The interview when he said the streets of balitmore was to rough for him.
        Now he hanging out in gay clubs, and its alright too…

        Yo i dont know how everybody else gets down.
        But hanging out in a fag club, not my style.

        Thats like he chilling with a known snitch,!!!!!??

        If you are comfortable enough to be around faggots for your pleasure,
        Then you might be gay…..

  • jamaicanbornanbreed
