Today’s Lady News: Queen Latifah Says Give Chris Brown “A Second Chance”

  • Queen Latifah has spoken up to say it’s time to stop punishing Chris Brown for his assault on Rihanna last year. “The guy is a young guy and he made a big mistake and he needs to bounce back from that,” she said. “And he needs an opportunity for a second chance … We can’t condemn that kid. He’s a kid and he needs to correct the mistake for the future, not live in the past. He needs to be forgiven. Enough already. We can’t keep beating him up.” What do y’all think?

Did Queen Latifah Get Photoshopped Thinner In Her “Just Wright” Poster?

I was poking around on Apple’s iTunes Movie Trailers site this weekend, when I noticed the poster for Queen Latifah and Common‘s new movie, “Just Wright,” looked a little, well, just wrong. I know the Queen is a Jenny Craig spokeswoman and has lost some weight over the past couple of years, but this much? The angle is flattering, and it’s hard to tell with Common’s arms wrapped around her. Still, it looks to me like someone has gone in, thinned her up, and given her a boob-lift. Sure, this is the Hollywood way of doing things, but it feels lame, especially considering Queen Latifah seems like one of those people who would actually not really care about what anyone thought of her body but herself. Decide for yourself after the jump. Keep reading »

Slideshow: The Frisky’s Favorite Plus Sized Pin Ups

Big girl bombshell Beth Ditto has already made us swoon with her songs and her sass, but now she’s going to conquer a business that has typically seemed a little small minded for a lady like her- fashion. Known for her outtasight onstage getups made of metallic spandex and her tasty Tracey Turnblad-esque print dresses, everyone has been taking notice of the lead singer of The Gossips’ bold personal style and sense of self- especially Lisa Marie Peacock. The head designer of Evans’, a plus size chain store in the UK, is reportedly canoodling with the saucy singer about rocking her look for the clothing line. Set to debut this June, it sounds like Beth’s got big plans to wrap the whole world in gold lamé!

Crave: “The Secret Life Of Bees” DVD

“The Secret Life of Bees” is one of those movies that will make you cry, laugh and appreciate your friends. Set during the Civil Rights Era, the story focuses on Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning) whose journey to learn about her dead mother takes her to the home of the Boatwright sisters in South Carolina. Lily forms a maternal bond with each of the sisters as they expose her to comfort, grace and spirituality–luxuries she has never been afforded at home. Queen Latifah as August Boatwright is as warm and compassionate as Matron Mama Morton was money-hungry in “Chicago.” The other actors, including Jennifer Hudson, Sophie Okonedo and Tristan Wilds, were also perfectly cast. You will connect to each of the characters and the issues at hand. The DVD release date is February 3, but it’s available for pre-order now. [$19.99, Amazon.com] Keep reading »
