Queen Latifah Reveals What Makes A Woman Sexy: "You Don't Have To Show Yo' Titties & Yo' Booty!"

Queen Latifah did an in-depth interview with Sister 2 Sister's Jamie Foster Brown recently.  And Ms. Dana gave some insight into what makes a sexy woman.  And no, it's not the perfect T&A and skin baring bods. 

 

Check out her interesting comments inside....

Sister 2 Sister posted this excerpt from their recent interview with Queen Latifah in their September 2011 issue.  If you ever wanted to know what the creator of "Single Ladies" thinks makes a woman hot sh*t, check it:

Queen Latifah: …I just like ladies who have class. Period. And if it’s “T and A” you’re sellin’, that’s fine, as long as that’s what you’re selling. But you don’t have to show everything, you know? You can hold some back and just be yourself and let your personality shine and let your individuality show. To me, that’s sexier. A confident woman is a sexy woman, in my opinion. And I think guys find that to be the same way.

Jamie: Right.

Queen Latifah: You don’t have to show everything; you don’t have to put it all out there to attract a guy. Because what kind of guy are you gonna attract? What is he really looking for? If you wanna be a booty call, I guess you can throw it all out there. (laughs) But if you’re looking for a relationship with someone who respects you and respects things other than your body—your mind, your spirit, your personality, your smile—then you have to kind of exude that more so than just yo’ booty and yo’ titties.

Alrighty.  Now--S2S didn't post what their exact question to that first answer was or the context in which these comments were made.  So even though it may sound like Queen is talking about what type of women she finds sexy for her taste (and y'all know exactly what I'm talking about), it could have just been an innocent question as to generally what makes women sexy.

The full interview is in the new issue hitting stands soon.

love latifah but heterosexual

love latifah but heterosexual hos aren't taking advice on what's sexy from a lesbian. as long as men continue to lust, hoot & holla, honk their horns and give extra attention to the ho-ish, chicks with low self esteem and nothing else to offer will continue to dress that way.

Nice message but I call BS.

Nice message but I call BS. Men don't have their own breast and hips to admire so of course it's a thrill for them to see that exposed and working out is hard and painful and not having cellulite is a miracle, so of course women who work hard to have nice assets want to display them. Having nice toned thighs and legs is lucky, why not flaunt it. I stopped watching Single Ladies after 5 epsiodes, but all they did was display their assets, so what if you cover your breast and booty but the material covering it is so tight and clingy that people can see every dimple and vein. Breast and Booty may be covered with fabric but the shape is still on full blast and there's still nothing really left to the imagination accept maybe whether the skin is nice, like a women with a nice frame is going to wear a baggy outfit just to save something to imagine. Exposing body parts doesn't automatically mean the women is an easy hoe, she could be a sexy tease who makes the man wait 8 months....sexy, revealing clothes really don't determine a women's standards. A slutty girl is a slutty girl regardless of conservative clothes, and a nice male/female body, especially with great skin is something to reveal, why hide.

I get what you're saying, but

I get what you're saying, but let me ask you this... If you were offering a job, and I were a candidate for an interview, and I arrived at your business establishment with a micro-mini skirt, a midriff-exposing top, and a sky-high pair of heels to match, what would you think of me? How would you perceive me? Would you want a woman of my "standards" representing your company? That is, assuming your business is not one in the adult entertainment industry... The point QL is trying to make here is that women should show (men) that they have much more to offer than T&A. You are a wholesome creature equipped with a brain for engaging in intelligent conversation....not the chick in the office every man (or woman) takes to the backroom for a coffee-break quickie. In other words, what you "sell" is what people will "buy". Maybe that's not fair...but neither is life!

I think it's hilarious when a girl is poor, people say, don't judge a book by it's cover. She could be a wonderful person. But when someone dresses fancy, they're told that they don't have to be "flashy" for people to think you look nice. Then if a girl dresses in average and someone says something negative, they tell you not to be judgemental again, but when a girl turns around and wears somethign a bit revealing, she's said to be a hoe. It's funny that most people see being a hoe as how someone dresses. Being a hoe is an action, not a style. Some of these under dresses females are the nastiest in the game, while Marilyn, Beyonce, J.Lo and several midriff wearing, breast revealing, short skirt dawning women will more than likely go down in history as some of the classiest women in history. As well they should be. Queen Latifah can talk because she can afford the fashions, but as far as everyone else who can't, if you can't afford sexy outfits that look nice and not cheap, don't knock the women who can. Besides, she's not built for these type of thing and would rather admire a woman's shape than have one, so for all you fat bitches out there. Leave the cute pretty, so called "hoe dressing" women alone and let them do what they want with their fashion choices. Attack frumpy dumpy Whoopie or something.

If it walks like a duck,

If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, 9 out of 10 times it IS a duck. If I am not a whore - a prostitute, or streetwalker - why would I dress as one? Why would I represent myself as such? And why in the world would I want to be mistaken as one? You are your own brand. What you choose to "sell" to others is solely up to you. Wearing a sexy outfit is not frowned upon, however, that depends upon what you define as sexy. A knee-length, well-fitted, curve-hugging dress to me is sexy, and in wearing that, neither my breasts nor hips are exposed. But again, to each his (her) own. You can dress yourself in whatever manner you are pleased. But if you market your ass and breasts to a man (instead of your mind!), you cannot be offended when he asks the question.................."HOW MUCH?"

Why should we be concerned

Why should we be concerned with her sexual preference is, it's her business. Queen, is at the top of her game doing the damn thing. A Cover Girl contract, her own production label we all should aspire to be like her. She is absolutely correct, many woman today aspire to be a, HOOCHIE MAMA! Less is more, leaving something to the imagination is a good thing. We as woman shouldn't put everything on display. I see woman quite often wearing things that are not becoming to their figure. And many of them, should take a look in the mirror before going out, and hit the gym.

I'm 5 feet tall exactly and have a 36DD bust. It is a fucking curse, and all the women on my mom's side have huge boobs (if you are a female in my family with anything under a C cup, call the Maury show.) I have ALWAYS kept my cleavage covered because I've always been so uncomfortable about showing too much. Believe me, men always find something to say. No matter how you cover up or how ladylike you are.

A booty call is what most black GIRLS (under 25) aspire to be. Their mothers,aunts, neighbors weren't married and didn't have nothin so they literally don't KNOW any better. They KNOW about poppin out babies and EBT cards.

LOL @ some of these comments.

LOL @ some of these comments. I am a breasts and ass man. That's the first thing that draws me to a woman. And yes, I do get to know her by going on dates, texting, and speaking on the phone. It doesn't bother me when women show breasts or ass. Hell, does it bother folks when women wear bikins?? Aren't they showing breast and ass. The same question can be asked when I see women wearing those sexy dresses, blouses, daisy dukes, etc.. If a man is complaining about women shouldn't be exposing their breasts or ass, then his ass is just too old or from a different era! LOL. I am a young man so when I am out, I do look but I don't touch. I'm never that disrespectful! Everyone is different but those assets aren't a problem with me unless you don't have at all! When a woman says that another woman is "sluty" or "look at her with her titties out", they are just hatin'! Why in the world is she worried about her chest? Is she flat chestd and just jealous because she also has no ass! What??? That sh** just annoys me!

Just a question... If a man

Just a question... If a man walked around with his nutsack hanging out of his pants, what would your initial reaction be? Depending on which side of the fence you're one, you'll cringe with digust or you'll express delight. But, I digress.... The idea here is that a woman who possesses both physically and intellectual prowess can command a man's attention, even in an old pair of jeans, an over-sized T-shirt, and her hair pulled back in a ponytail. She is just THAT DAMN GOOD(LOOKING). My breasts and hips are not what I wish to be distinguished by or acknowledge as, and so I dress accordingly. Growing up, I was taught to dress the way I wanted to be ADdressed. That ideal lives true, even to this day. I can walk into a room with a skirt to the floor, a blouse buttoned up to my neck, and lay that bad boy out. Meanwhile, the overly-sexy chick with her barely-there skirt, sky-high stilettos, and revealing top is shuffling in her seat to make herself look more "presentable". To each his (her) own.

As a black man who is married

As a black man who is married and have been for twelve years, I don't have a problem with my wife showing clevage because she is with me and only men. And yes, I have noticed other men checking her out but I am not one of those insecure men who tell her to cover up when we go out or when she goes out with her girls. Why??? Because I trust her. Men who telll their women what to wear or what not to try need to "kick rocks"! LOL. (got that phrase from my my twelve year old daughter)Hell, when I noticed other men checking out my wife, it doesn't bother me at all! I say, "look but don't touch"!!! DUH!!!!!!

Desmond, would you want your daughter (when she gets older of course) to go out with her cleavage showing? Secondly, why is it important for a MARRIED woman to show her cleavage. You only show your goods when you want to attract. You can be as secure as you want in your marriage (many are and find out their significant other has been double dipping). To a lot of men, they like things to be left to the imagination. A woman can be extremely sexy without showing her goods. Just a thought.

my wife and I had several talks with our daughter. She already had two school dances. The dresses she wore exposed little clevage. I do not have a problem with my daughter's wardrobe and neither does my wife. There are plenty of women who expose their cleavage but not intentionally. My wife is a 42DD and they are natural. So certain clothes she wears may show her cleavage.

There are some men out there

There are some men out there who are just too old schooled and want their woman to be covered like she is Almish! LOL. I say if you got it and you still look good, then flaunt it! Hell I wish I had bigger breasts but my husband says he still loves me. We have three kids together. I was one of those women who did not get bigger breast when I gave birth to three kids. I am only a "B" cup. Everyone has their preference when it comes to what is sexy and what isn't! But physically speaking, assets are a plus!!

I dont care who she sleeps with... Latifah is a great example to women that you can be successful by using your God-given talent and commanding respect. I mean really she came out during the 80's and women calling themselves Queens when some rappers were calling them B's and H's. She's alright in my book!
