Exclusive! Queen Latifah: “Anyone Who Takes On A Talk Show Is Running The Gauntlet”

Published

Last week, the lovely and talented Queen Latifah confirmed via Facebook that her daytime talkshow, The Queen Latifah Show was being canceled. The news came as a shock for fans around the nation, but for Latifah, she was well aware that putting on a successful talk show was not an easy task.

“Anyone who takes on a talk show is running the gauntlet and taking a chance,” Latifah told HipHollywood exclusively just days before last week’s big announcement. “Many of them don’t work and some do. They are very challenging to create and to create in a fresh way and garner an audience.”

Queen, who is known to inspire and change the lives of people around the world, may be saying goodbye to daytime television, but the star has much more to conquer. “The people who have tuned in have been pretty loyal to the show and hopefully we get to keep building on that and introducing that to more people. In the meantime, I’ll do some movies and some music and keep juggling other balls.”

She added, “I’ve been very fortunate to have a great fan base whose allowed me to experiment and that’s been important to who I am as a person. I need to be able to do that.”

The QL Show will air original episodes until March on CBS, so be sure to tune in Monday-Friday at 2 p.m.

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
