Inquiring News Exclusive: The “Queen Latifah” Show – By.  Jocelyne Hudson-Brown – Inquiring News

Queen Latifah, 43, has always been a multitalented phenomenon and a trailblazer.  Her resume is impressive. Grammy Award winning Hip-Hop artist, Golden Globe Award winning actress, BET Image Award winner,     and Oscar Award nominee highligQueen-Web-Pixht some of her accomplishments.  A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Not bad for a girl from New Jersey.

Throughout it all she has carried herself with a certain air of poise and confidence that has eluded many women in the entertainment industry. Female self-empowerment and self-respect have always been a running theme throughout her projects. She has now placed herself in the position of “talk show host” with the unveiling of her new daytime television effort “The Queen Latifah Show.”

With Latifah at the helm, “The Queen Latifah Show” is produced, written directed by a powerhouse of Hollywood A-listers including Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith along with her longtime Flavor Unit associate Hakim Compere.  To which she says, “I am working with all my old friends, who happen to be huge.” She has known Will, Jada and Hakim since they were all in their teens. “We have all become great businesspeople and have grown throughout our careers to get to this point. We know where we came from and we know who we are.”

This is not a project that she is taking lightly. “I want to make this show a big hit, I really do. I feel if we can make this show a big hit we have the power to change people’s lives. That means a lot to me” she says. “I want my show be must see TV, that’s my goal”

“We are looking to do a fun hour.  A-list celebrities, DJ’s, interesting topics. We are going into the field. Doing really interesting stories on people who are making a difference every day. We are thinking outside the box. Not just the plain old talk show format. We are going to stretch it (The Queen Latifah Show) a little further, make it funnier, elevate it, take it to the next level.”

At this point in her career (and her life) Queen Latifah seems grounded and happy to be surrounded by whole lot of love. She maintains a sense of optimism that places her in position for even greater success. “I want to have fun on my show, I want to sing and do sketches. I (also) want to walk away with something, I want to learn something and I want to share that. I could retire doing this.” she says. The Queen Latifah Show airs on NBC-30. Check your local listings.
