While whispers of Queen Latifah succession to the Oprah throne heighten, VIBE Vixen simply wants to congratulate the queen. Successfully breaking the barriers of Hollywood (a world seemingly allergic to bodacious Black women), the Jersey lyricist took on Tinseltown to secure a beloved sitcom Living Single, snag an Oscar nom and Golden Globe award (among others), and, later, create a popular beauty collection for the ladies under Cover Girl umbrella. Winning? Of course.
Now, she’s heading back to the TV screen as a daytime talk show host. She recently inked with Sony Pictures, with the support of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett, to be the face of syndicated program set to debut in 2013. There’s nothing this Queen can’t do. If Vixens are paying attention, take notes!
Congrats, Miss Latifah!
