Yassss Queen!


Rap icon Queen Latifah has been living up to her name with a smash hit  daytime talk show, buy cialis treat a successful production company, and major projects in the  works, but what people don’t know is that she once felt as though her life was  in shambles.  Back in 1992, her brother was killed in a motorcycle accident, which left her faith challenged and  stunted her personal growth.

This month, she is covering JET  Magazine, and inside, she reveals that she felt lost in her twenties  because she “disconnected spiritually,” but she was able to snap out of it once  she fell in love.

On when her faith was most challenged The biggest thing to ever  test my personal faith was the loss of my brother in a motorcycle accident… I  believed it ruined my life. I probably had a five-year interruption in any type  of personal growth.  There were some things I didn’t learn in my twenties because I was disconnected  emotionally.  I could only get so close or feel so much.”

How she was able to move forward I fell in love. It was like a circuit breaker had switched off.

On if she wants to have children I’ve wanted to adopt since I was  18 because I grew up with friends who could’ve used good parents.  Maybe  it’s my romanticism of after-school specials where someone would adopt  a child and life would be great afterward.  I have a lot of love to  give.

On her participation in the same-sex marriage ceremony at the Grammy  Awards It was a beautiful moment and not a political decision… I knew it  would make a statement and I’m fine with the statement it made.

On why she did a talk show after a 13-year hiatus I had a  lot to share and wanted to add some  positivity to daytime TV; something fun, energetic and with a little more  flavor. Personally I’m in a much better spot. I’ve done a lot of growing and  I’m  okay with being in one place for a prolonged amount of time. Before, I was  a bit  more nomadic.

I’m in a totally different place now. I wanted to accomplish so much the last  time around— acting, singing, producing— so I wasn’t completely focused. Of  course I still enjoy doing all of those things but I really want to be here.  I’m  so excited to go to work every day on the show.

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding Queen Latifah’s personal life, however this is the first time she’s ever  opened up about love and alluded to her stance on same-sex marriages without  telling all of her business.
