I realized there was racism because people thought, ‘Oh, if you like roll ‘n’ roll, that makes you like a white kid.’Queen Latifah
There are times you can’t really see or even feel how sweet life can be. Hopefully its mountains will be higher than its valleys are deep. I know things that are broken can be fixed. Take the punch if you have to, hit the canvas and then get up again. Life is worth it.Queen Latifah
I always loved all kinds of music. I would watch musicals a lot as a kid, on TV, watch the Fred Astaire movies. I’d watch ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ I was a big Jerry Lewis fan, and they’d have these big bands and someone singing – some siren, or some guy singing some gorgeous song. I was always enamored of that style of music.Queen Latifah
I am not one to turn down macaroni and cheese, even late at night. I love Italian food. I love pasta… A refrigerator full of water and Gatorade? Honey, that’s just not gonna happen.Queen Latifah
The objectification of females is not a good thing! Not every rapper does this, but when the lyrics focus solely on the strip club, ‘poppin’ bottles’ and how many girls they can ‘tap,’ it distorts what kids are learning. I think if there was more of a female presence in hip hop we could break up the monotony. It’s all about balance.Queen Latifah
