What Queen Latifah Has Up Her Sleeve Now!
After delivering a soulful, heart felt rendition of “America the Beautiful” during Sunday night’s Super Bowl, the talkshow host revealed that in 2014 she is getting back to her roots … Music.
According to AP, during a backstage interview following the singer’s performance, Queen expressed her desire to make music her focus this year. “I’m already working on stuff with that,” she said. “I can kind of interweave that with the talk show … It’s time to jack another day at the show, give the interviews a break for one day and just perform and rock the crowd. So, I have the best platform to do it.”
Latifah first came on the map as one of hip-hop’s pioneer feminists, releasing tracks such as “Wrath of My Madness” and “U.N.I.T.Y.” The star who later went on to take on singing, modeling, and acting, is currently the host of her own talkshow, The Queen Latifah Show.
During the post performance interview, Queen, who is no stranger to Super Bowl performances, expressed how much she enjoyed delivering America’s patriotic song.
“Anybody who takes it as a joke … To me, I don’t know if they really get it,” she said. “This is moment where for a change we all can … Come together and (have) a sense of pride, and not really worry about anything else that goes on Monday morning.”
