Queen Latifah and Tupac Walk Into a Gay Bar…
Responding to those of you who interpreted her recent performance at Longbeach Pride as her much anticipated coming out, Queen Latifah’s got a few things to say.
A few things about that time she and Tupac went to a gay bar together.
That said, the 42-year old was thrilled to participate in the event and even recalled an earlier performance for gay audiences. “To me, doing a gay pride show is one of the most fun things,” she says. “My first show that paid more than $10,000 was in a gay club on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco. Tupac happened to be in town, so he came to kick it with me. This was the early ’90s. And the boys were like, ‘Take your shirt off, Tupac!’ He wasn’t doing that. But we had a blast in there.”
Latifah gets a lot of shade tossed her way for not being open and honest about her alleged lesbianism and longtime partner Jeannette Jenkins, but I have to say she seems like a really fun lady.
Do you think Queen Latifah will ever come out? Does it even really matter at this point? Are we all jerks for talking about her sexuality when she has no intention of doing so herself?
