Totally Not Gay Queen Latifah Describes Her Ideal Girlfriend

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, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion.”

– Rapper and actress Queen Latifah, describing what she finds sexy in a woman. Even though Latifah has not publicly come out, she has been photographed canoodling on vacation with her “live-in personal trainer” as well as enjoying lesbian strippers

      She isn’t shitting on us in public while privately doing the nasty with her girlfriend. I don’t really care if she comes out or not.

      Her life is her own business not ours. I prefer public figures that keep their private lives private, it’s just better that way. Nothing worse than fame whores, gay or straight, peddling their private lives to People magazine and the like.

      I always liked Queen Latifah, and I think she’s attractive, even though she’s overweight. She doesn’t have the face of someone like that.

      Those photos of her with her girlfriend, by the way, are very romantic.

      @Redford: said….”Her life is her own business not ours. I prefer public figures that keep their private lives private, it’s just better that way.”

      It disgusts me when gays buy into the line that a straight person mentioning that they are married and have children is ok, but a gay person saying that they are dating somebody nice is somehow different, and more in line with somebody talking about in detail what they do in the bedroom.

      Considering that straight people wear wedding rings and file for marriage in a public building, that is not “Private”. You buy into the bigotry when you assume that merely saying you are gay is a dirty secret.

      That said, it looks like Latifa may be inching out of the closet. Good for her.

      Oh pullezze. Why do we have to look for clues that someone is gay. In the context of saying that women don’t have to show their tits to be sexy this does not seem like an admission of anything. Why is it that something that is a deep personal choice to come out not respected by gays. It’s like we are desperate to have another one for our team. She has never disparaged the gay community and owes us nothing at all. Quite frankly I think certain celebrities SHOULD stay in the closet. As long as they aren’t hurting anyone they are wise to that if they want to continue their career.

      So what. “Black gay” always knew the queen had an intrest in women. People have problems with us wearing our “blackness” on our sleeve, why should it be any different with our “gayness”. We know who we are and proud of both and we don’t have to broadcast either.

      When she finally comes out it will be like Ricky Martin everyone will say we always knew that.

      @inoits2: Why would you think certain celebrities should stay in the closet? To whose benefit–theirs or yours?

      You do know you’re dealing with an public who, for the most part, don’t even care?

      Who’s career has been ruined by coming out lately besides Chely Wright?

      @Cam:
      I agree. I’m watching television and watching Kim Kardashian talking about her upcoming marriage, and people don’t say a word, but if we think Queen should have that same freedom, it’s “this isn’t our business.” IT’S THE SAME THING. Disturbingly, I hear that kind of rhetoric from gays than straights now.

      @Joe: Of course you’re care. Here you are.

      –For their benefit.

      –Why should they care? They may not want to be a poster child for gay rights.

      Who’s career has been ruined by coming out lately besides Chely Wright?
      –Adam Lambert and Rupert Everett

      Lesson learned…be prepared for an end to your career by coming out of the closet.
      The gay Glee guy will never do anything after Glee.

      @inoits2:
      How to their benefit? When they come out, nothing happens to them. People said Adam Lambert’s career was doomed…even Gene Simmons said that, and yet, Adam sells out 99% of his concert seats. Check his concert sales…they are huge. I wouldn’t call that ruined. Rupert Everett ruined himself because he burns more bridges than he builds. He had numerous opportunities to get his career on track and he kept making films people didn’t want to see. The fact he was gay wasn’t the issue. To make matters worse, he starting cutting up his face.

      As far as “The gay Glee guy” as concerned: he wrote a feature, got it greenlit and is the lead in that as well as getting a book deal. He is also the only cast member besides Jane Lynch to win awards for Glee. BTW, he’s only 21. And Jane Lynch is out as well, as she’s everywhere.

      So, I’m curious as to why you’re hell-bent on thinking people’s careers end when they come out when in fact it does the opposite.

      @M: The point is that coming out is a personal choice. A person should not be ridiculed or harassed because militant gays say they should sacrifice for the good of all gays.

      @inoits2: What are you talking about? Who ever said Queen Latifah should sacrifice for the good of all gays?

      Do I think everyone should be out for their own betterment? Sure. But I would never encourage someone to stay in the closet, unless the lived in Saudia Arabia or something at which point I would then tell them they need to move.

      @M: Who are you to tell anyone to come out and it’s is a huge myth that coming out will mean lots of betterment. People’s lives can be seriously fucked up by coming out. There is a time and place for coming out.

      I am surprised you wouldn’t support someone coming out in Saudi Arabia. I mean wouldn’t them losing their head be good for the cause.

      @M: No, Member, I really don’t care if she’s a lesbian. I do care that some homos want her to come out so that they can feel better about themselves. I also mostly care about Morning Wood, which is why I came to the site in the first place this morning. But no, Queerty cock-blocked me again.

      Read the quote in context. No way was she coming out:

      Queen Latifah: …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, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion. And I think guys find that to be the same way.

      Jamie: Right.

      Queen Latifah: You don’t have to show everything; you don’t have to put it all out there to attract a guy. Because what kind of guy are you gonna attract? What is he really looking for? If you wanna be a booty call, I guess you can throw it all out there. (laughs) But if you’re looking for a relationship with someone who respects you and respects things other than your body—your mind, your spirit, your personality, your smile—then you have to kind of exude that more so than just yo’ booty and yo’ titties.

      As a male actor, if you don’t mind not landing that leading male or action role, by all means come out. If Smurf movie roles, ensemble cast shows, Glee type shows, variety shows, hosting award shows is enough for you than great, come on out. If you want that role in the next action or blockbuster movie or main tv starring character lead that’s not gay, do not. Sad but true without exception. The issue that even more sad is the self-loathing homosexual that needs entertainers to come out in order to validate their own orientation. Who decided it was an actor’s job to come out for all of us?

      To be fair (since the headline says “totally not gay”), Queen Latifah didn’t deny she was gay, and as far as I know, she never has.

      Really ppl who cares if Queen Latifah is gay or not? 1st, she is human..that won’t change… 2nd, her private life is her business… 3rd, how many of us have done things in private and don’t share publicly? Because she is a celebrity? Not! I say Queen u keep doing u, cause u are beautiful no matter what and I will always be a fan…Thanks for the entertainment(music, movies, tv & etc), through-out the years…

      Alright, shut the fuc up trying to defend a celebrity. A celebrity choose to put they life in public by going public. If choose to write a book or a bio on your life than, then tell the truth about your life. If the public want to know, tell the what’s the deal. You had no problem letting the public know about your next film, cd,, or what ever you promote. My thang is do you, and stop with the ladies first, cause you are a wanna be man. But you still my girl though. 1

      Queen Latifah has done nothing for gay rights. She is simply a female celebrity who seems to like females to titillate sleazy straight guys who have a fetish for girl-girl action. She’s not one of us.
