Meet Sean Bishop And Taylor Knuth, One Of The Couples That Got Married At The Grammys Last Night

I was traveling last night, so I missed most of the Grammys. I tuned in for about four minutes, in which I caught 34 couples getting married by Queen Latifah. It was like one of those strange, “Wizard of Oz”-type dreams that would be hard to explain: “It was the Grammys and Madonna was there…

Dolly Parton Raps Awkwardly On “The Queen Latifah Show”

Dolly Parton is a goddess who can do no wrong. But, um, this clip of her rapping on “The Queen Latifah Show” wearing a blonde Afro wig is cringe-inducingly awkward. Just stick to country — OK, Dolly? I hope voicing this opinion won’t halt invitations to special Dolly/Latifah girly brunches. [Entertainment Weekly]

The Trailer For The Black Reboot Of “Steel Magnolias” Has Arrived!

Question: can Lifetime really call their remake — featuring an all black cast — of the ’80s classic “Steel Magnolias” an “original movie”? Because the story line and all the dialogue appears to be exactly the same. This time around, the movie stars Queen Latifah (M’Lynn), Alfre Woodard (Ouise, still in a bad mood for…

Queen Latifah Releases A Just-Okay Lifestyle Brand With HSN

Queen Latifah has possessed a powerful image since the 1980s. Who can forget the impact of a female MC donning queen-like garb — leather Africa medallions, Nefertiti-esque hats, and other Afro-centric attire? But, still, we would never argue that she’s a fashion icon. So we’re kind of surprised she, too, has a lifestyle brand with…

Queen Latifah Finally Comes Out

“I just like ladies who have class. Period. And if it’s ‘T and A’ you’re sellin’, that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know? You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me,…

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?
