Queen Latifah Throws Cold Water on Lesbian Wedding Rumors

Latifah_2Recent reports that Queen Latifah had proposed to her longtime personal trainer Jeanette were squashed by the Queen while she was in Chicago recently to promote her upcoming film The Perfect Holiday.

Said Latifah to the Sun-Times: "When you're famous these days, it's just part of the deal -- unfortunately. People will make up all sorts of things that are not true...There ain't gonna be no wedding."

  3. Did Vinnie Barbarino introduce her to his Magical "Homo No-mo'" E-Meter during the filming of _Hairspray_?

  4. But she can still come out, just no wedding, right? I mean, I've told all my friends about it! By the way, it's 'quashed', not 'squashed'.

  7. "Ain't gonna be no wedding." (BUT, don't mean we ain't gonna live together.) C'mon, Latifah. Don't be afraid. You got so many of us who LOVE you. We got your back, girl. Don't worry 'bout it.

  12. I saw Queen Latifah on the Larry King show the other night making a plug for her book and it seems that the gist of it is that and I quote “Every woman is a queen and deserves to be treated as one.” Uh, what? Meaning she should be waited on hand and foot by servants, maids and butlers? That she should live in bourgeois decadence never caring how her subjects live in squalor? Because that’s truly what royalty is all about. How about instead “Every woman is a woman and deserves to be treated with respect as a woman, just as every man is a man and deserves to be treated with respect as a man.” But I guess that doesn’t have the gimmicky sloganeering ring to it that Latifah’s statement does.

    I’m sorry but it just irks me that some people still have this backwards, feudalistic mindset that idolizes royalty and wealth. This is 2010. There shouldn’t even BE any queens or kings in existence anymore. Idolizing royalty is to keep a mindset that gets in the way of progress. She’s famous enough now that if she just went by Latifah instead of Queen Latifah everyone this side of Mars would still know who she is so how about it Latifah? Can you drop the “Queen” from your name and get down here with the commoners who work for a living in the hot non-air-conditioned struggles of the poor? How about using that star power and gravitas to push for real wealth redistribution in this country instead of calling yourself a queen and helping legitimize an oppressive status quo?
