Queen Latifah Talks About Her Return To Daytime TV

(AllHipHop News) Rapper, singer, actress, and television personality Queen Latifah is set to debut the new version of her day-time talk show today (9/16). After stepping a way from hosting duties of her first program in 2001, the 43-year-old Academy Award nominee is ready to return to the small screen.

Latifah explains to USA Today about what makes the new version of The Queen Latifah Show different from the last:

That was a long time ago, over 10 years ago. I’ve changed tremendously. I enjoyed the first show, but there was a lot I wanted to do in terms of acting and producing. I’ve been able to satisfy that itch. Now I can make a show that’s much more what I want it to be… The first show – the idea of it was what I wanted but what it became wasn’t quite what I wanted it to be. It got a little too heavy, a little too serious. It started to feel like it wasn’t as me as it should be.

She also tell the New York Post:

I definitely felt a little bit of a void. I don’t know, there was a little heart missing in daytime TV… I watch a lot of TV and I definitely watch talk shows and I felt like some of the “fun factor” was missing, an entertainment factor, to a degree.

The Queen Latifah Show is being produced by Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment, Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment, and Sony TV. Another musician-turned-actor, Lenny Kravitz, was brought on to design the set for the show.
