Queen Latifah's quotes

  • I think it's important to create projects as an actor rather than wait for them. I love being able to take an idea and sell it to a studio.
  • I'm pretty much the same but trying to be better every day. I don't think the success has gone to my head. I don't think I'm alienating friends or losing friends.
  • I really don't know how to be anyone else, and whenever I try to be anyone else, I fail miserably. Or I disappoint myself. It doesn't build my self-esteem, and it doesn't help me grow me at all.
  • I'd like to have and adopt [children]. I think I'd be a great mom, honestly. I don't think I'll have any problem giving them all the love in the world. Discipline will be the hard part.
  • I wish every woman would love herself and embrace what she was given naturally.
  • 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.
  • It was a very vulnerable time going from being insecure about my body and who I am to becoming comfortable with me. I had to tune out what the hell everybody else had to say about who I was. When I was able to do that, I felt free.
  • Dreams become reality when we put our minds to it.
  • [on moving from singing to acting] My mom taught me to never put all my eggs in one basket. I figured if I wasn't the best rapper, then I shouldn't completely rely on rap.
  • I don't have to really be in the 60s. Every time I hail a cab in New York, and they pass me by and pick up the white person, then I get a dose of it. Or when they don't want to take you to Harlem. I grew up with that.
  • If my brother and I wanted money in our pockets, we had to get jobs - my first was at Burger King.
  • I don't want to be a supermodel. I want to be a role model.
  • Home shapes you. Make sure you shape it back.
