During the past weekend, Queen Latifah attended the Black Girls Rock where she was awarded as the legendary black female in the industry and at the same time she was also given the Rock Star Award. The Queen looked elegant in her copper and black sequined dress as she walked on the red carpet. She also talked about the latest discrimination controversy between Barneys and Jay Z. She said:
“I don’t know that it’s there. I think that Jay Z’s been pretty clear when it’s hit him close to home [and] when things just don’t sit right with him, but obviously things warrant further investigation. But we’ve been going through this for a long time. We know that this is something that has been continuous in our community for us when we go into various stores. I would hope that that’s not the case with Barneys. That some people got overzealous and did the wrong thing and that it’s not the whole corporation because I like Barneys and I’d hate to have to boycott them! That would be terrible. I’m hoping that this whole situation gets solved and it’s a lesson to everybody else and these other stores to be cognizant of your shopper. Just because you have on a baseball cap doesn’t mean you don’t have money. We don’t have to justify where we got the money to buy an expensive belt.”
She also discussed about her show which is The Queen Latifah Show. When asked about her favorite guests on the show, she replied:
“Dolly Parton probably. Mary was one of my favorite days because I got to have just my friend sitting next to me doing what we do professionally.”
“Nicki was so much fun. We had a good time. I was glad she wanted to play and we were able to play around with those accents and really have a great conversation with her about the state of females in hip hop.”
Congrats to Queen Latifah!
