No, Queen Latifah's Not Engaged & Aint Getting Hitched+Gabby Talks More Ish About the Media
Dec 12 | by Natasha
Just as expected, the rumor of Queen Latifah being engaged to and ready to marry her trainer are false. Surprise surprise. The Chicago Sun Times chatted it up with Queen this weekend while the Perfect Holiday cast was in town for some movie promo. She told the Times:
''When you're famous these days, it's just part of the deal -- unfortunately. People will make up all sorts of things that are not true. . . . There ain't gonna be no wedding.''And yes, I believe the chick. I purposely refrained from entertaining this little rumor on The YBF for a few reasons. And those who like gossip with some credibility can feel me on that. So the e-mail influx about this in my inbox can stop now. But keeping it all the way funky...we all know Queen is still tapping the trainer. Gabby's pissy that the big bad media is marketing Perfect Holiday as solely an urban holiday movie:
No one calls Fred Claus the white Christmas movie. The Perfect Holiday is a movie about the holidays. It’s not race-specific. If there’s more than one black person in the movie, it’s an urban romantic comedy, an urban thriller - it’s just a flipping movie. The way kids think, the demographic they pander and chase - they don’t care. The same way guys are like, ‘Halle Berry’s hot, Jessica Alba’s hot’ - they don’t say, ‘She’s a hot black girl’ or ‘a hot Latina’. They notice trends, they buy movies they like, they Google people they like. It’s not race-specific… Give me a break. It’s an old-fashioned notion of marketing, and how they like to label things.”
