Queen Latifah Did Not Come Out At Long Beach Pride
And no, she didn't come out in that picture by making the scissor sign. Keep waiting (or don't), bitches.
When Queen Latifah performed at Long Beach Pride and told the audience that she's happy to be with "her people," many hos, including this one, thought that was her subtle way of letting us know that she gets the mustache on the regular if you know what I mean. But Queef Latifah tells Entertainment Weekly that she hasn't given up her space in the closet and whose crotch she puts her lips on at the end of the night is in her personal file and you'll never have the password for it. Queen said that when she called the audience "her people" she meant that they were all there together to fight against hatred and bullies. You know, some U.N.I.T.Y. shit.
On the news that she came out at Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride: “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.”
On going to a gay club with Tupac: “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.”
On what she meant by calling the audience "her people": “I know that the most important thing and the only thing I have to give is love. When people are going through hatred and bullying, the biggest thing to fight that is love. So that’s all I encouraged my audience to do that night: to share their light and share their love. Period.”
Okay, so she's basically just Richard Simmons-ing it. Queen knows that we know that she wrestles clitty with her tongue. I guess it's not her time to fully come out yet, but does she know that when she officially comes out she gets a 3-pack of Hanes white tank tops, a gift certificate to IKEA and a screener for the new season of The Real L Word? Because that could be a dealmaker.
