QUEEN LATIFAH: She broke into the world of entertainment as a rapper who championed the image of the "Afrocentric, proud Black woman." For a brief moment, Black men believed they had a "real sister" on the entertainment scene. But Latifah's "overt Blackness" wouldn't last for long. In due course,
Latifah and her handlers realized there was more publicity and money to be had if she turned herself into a fake "Black feminist" and started attacking Black men in her songs. Thus, Latifah came out with the sexist, bigoted, and separatist "Ladies First" rap song. This was soon to be followed by the rap song "U-N-I-T-Y" which posited itself as a "men and women should get together" rap song, but was in fact a vicious attack on Black men filled with negative stereotypes of Black men and positive
stereotypes of Black women. This is the classic "bait and switch" game played by "Black feminists": start out like you want to be united with Black men, but end up attacking Black men if they are
unwilling to kiss feminist ass. Eventually, Latifah would drop her "Afrocentric" act all together: white people don't like paying money to Black Afrocentrics, ESPECIALLY Black female Afrocentrists-- since this is considered a bad example to set for young Black women. Today, Latifah is little more than your typical Black female cartoon, literally a caricature of herself-- pushing skin lightening cosmetics, doing commercials for the highly oppressive and exploitative Wal-Mart, and starring in movies surrounded by white men while
sporting a silly blonde hairdo. The reason why Latifah is all over the media today while Sista Souljah is almost invisible? Latifah sold out while Sista Souljah refused to sell out.
Queen Latifah: This is how she looked during her "Afrocentric" period. Queen Latifah: This is how she looked after she sold out-- which Queen Latifah do you prefer? It doesn't matter: she will market the image that white folks prefer.

If it is not apparent that the QL is a sell out you have had your head in the sand for many years. If you are of age to have truly seen this woman play both sides of the coin and don't see it then I cannot convince you that the sun rises in the east. Do some homework this woman is all about the money.

queen latifah is a sell out. its most sickening if you ask me. i was 11 years old when i first heard ladies first and that shape my image as a young girl. i was proud to be black. proud to be female. i felt empowered y that song.

then she started dissing the hell out of black men with unity. thats when i started to not trust her. that song, and the song black hand side, just didnt sit well with me. i was 15 years old. i started to really question her motives and her values.

then she made me really worried with set it off, she was a criminal. nevermind her sexual orientation, she was the queen, she represented honesty and integrity. now shes playing a dishonest no good bank robber. which one is queen? that movie really pissed me off. to be honest it was quite traumatic, which the goal america is after to distract and traumatize. i cut her completely off.

then she sold all the way out with that stupid movie bringing down the house. that was her meal ticket to riches and satisfying her greedy side. and boy did she take it. bring down the queen to a coon, the sweetest victory. now she can have the world. she became a mega star, and now she has the world. but no soul.

you know, you can be rich and do good at the same time. you dont have to sell out. do these greedy devil worshiper entertainers know that or even care?

every time i look at her i get a sick feeling and turn away. she doesnt exist to me anymore, and has not for a long time. the people dont pay queen latifah, she gets paid by the butt wranglers who's sticking it to her-the ad agencies and hollywood. stay away from those people. they kill souls and flesh.

i attract monetary wealth and i do good for the world. i provide an honest service and the law of attraction rewards me with honest riches. what goes around comes around. everyone soon finds out.

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who feels this way.
Wake up, people: it's smoke and mirrors.
Queen Latifah is just a persona, one that the woman behind the facade, Dana Owens, has used to manipulate an audience. Many people who class her as one of their favourite entertainers probably still don't know about her "afrocentric" phase. Most of her current crop of fans have probably never seen the album cover for "All Hail The Queen".
Back when Queen Latifah first appeared with "Ladies First", a lot of people who follow her nowadays weren't even listening to hip hop music. They were probably buying Debbie Gibson albums and dancing around in the bedroom to the sounds of Tiffany. Back when Queen Latifah was "alternative", they didn't even know she existed.
But now that hip hop is "trendy", everybody suddenly goes all crazy for Queen Latifah. Those same Madison Avenue suckers who are whoring out Queen Latifah to the highest bidder are the same folks who spent years saying "rap is crap" back in the 1980s.
Latifah was never an exceptional rapper, anyway. She was always pretty average, really. But the pool of prominent female rappers was so small back in those days, she was a big fish in a small pond. Go back and listen to those songs again, a lot of female rappers and rappers in general were far superior to Queen Latifah.
"U.N.I.T.Y." was always a song with a questionable message. "Fly Girl" was another song where Queen Latifah stroked her own ego. Inspired by the fact that nobody bought her albums, Dana Owens became an actress. Inspired by the fact that nobody bothered to see her movies at the cinema, Dana Owens decided to become a cosmetics brand whore. Now she's getting about with that ridiculous fake blonde hair, looking like Miss Piggy. Entirely appropriate look for her, wallowing in the filthy pen with all of the other greedy pigs.
Very few people in show business make good role models. They're no better at being role models than your next-door neighbour. Anybody who counts people such as Dana Owens and Tyra Banks as role models has issues. I don't even need to explain.
Hip-hop has been full of phonies for years. Remember N.W.A? Just a marketing machine. Ice Cube and his pals weren't inner city gangsters at all. They were about as authentic as Vanilla Ice. If you don't believe me, just remember Dr. Dre's previous life as a member of the World Class Wreckin' Cru, wearing vinyl suits and looking like a reject from the Jackson family. Then a couple years later he's a gangster from the streets of Compton? Then after denouncing marijuana abuse ("Express Yourself"), he makes an album entitled "The Chronic". Go figure. It's all smoke and mirrors. These people are chameleons.

Queen Latifah's sell-out has been a slow and painful process. Don't call her a hip hop legend. She hasn't endured, she just did a small number of albums and ran off to Hollywood, then jumped over to Madison Avenue. Screw her, she isn't worth a damn. She's a fake and she knows it. With material wealth and riches comes paranoia, not knowing who are your real friends and who are the ones just kissing your ass trying to get a little of what you've got. So you try to extinguish your feelings of paranoia by trying to obtain more material things to distract yourself from your insecurities and make you feel good about yourself. But then to do that, you need to become a bigger whore, do more make-up commercials, more photoshoots with soulless wannabe celebrities. It's a vicious cycle. And in the end, you wind up with nothing.

Basically, Dana Owens has fucked herself. She will never again just be Dana Owens. She tried to go back to her real name a number of years ago, but when it didn't work, she went back to being the "Queen Latifah Brand". She's created a monster, and she's basically become part of that monster. She walks around with a shield of fakeness surrounding her person. Even worse than that, she has killed the real being within and replaced it with a false inner being. Poor Dana Owens, doesn't even know herself anymore. She create a phoney rap persona, but then had to reinvent the fake image by adding more fakeness to it, and the end result is truly frightening. She's basically a plus-sized Paris You-Know-Who wannabe. Shameless and pathetic. And do you really believe that these folks in Hollywood are happy? Read the headlines, I would most certainly NOT want to be one of them.

Dana Elaine Owens (aka Queen Latifah) has sold out. Steve Harvey is another who has jumped on the bandwagon. It is all about the money.

When I look at her show, I see PRIMARILY White women! Yes, there are a few Black women in the audience, but her show does not address the issues of REAL Black women.

I am amazed at persons like this who have worked hard to "make it" and sit in positions to impact changes within the African American community and they cater to White people! They have forgotten their own people and have lost appreciation from where they came from.

Many of these Black women even make themselves up to look like White women with the skin-lightners and straightened and colored hair.

Heck, Beyonce does not look Black anymore to me.

And these shows are mostly Black women. I know it is difficult for Blacl celebrities to break into the talk show circuit - especially if you are a serious-minded and intelligent Black man. Not one who acts like a clown. The clown-like ones is what the entertainment "Powers that be" want.

It seems that many of these Black celebrities have been offered fame and money if they sellout their own people and be a party in keeping us in a depressed state. Or in a state where all we care about is dancing, singing, gossip, talk shows, and sports.

How about being a partner in educating our Black kids? If our kids could think, read, write, and reason as well as they dance, they would all be geniuses. But they have no good role models in this regard.

Black women are now being used to denigrate their own race (now even Steve Harvey). What are needed are strong serious-minded Black men and women who see what is happening and call such persons out. The true role models are the good Black teachers who REALLY care about our youth. The problem: They are not celebrity and many of them will not be heard This is a shame.

It sickens me to see what many Black celebrity are doing on TV. They have sold their souls to "the devil" and "pretend" they are Black at heart and care about their own people.

They are White-Americanized Negros who cater to the children of the slave masters.
