The Queen Knows Best!

Queen Latifah is one of our country's most talented entertainers. The Queen first hit the scene as a rapper, but has now blossomed into an outstanding Oscar-nominated actress, singer, producer, Covergirl and now author. Her new project, "Put on Your Crown: Life-Changing Moments on the Path to Queendom," is an inspiring and empowering book for women.

Latifah shares her own life experiences to help encourage women to be confident, strong and independent. From the importance of giving back to loving the skin you're in, Latifah tackles many issues that can improve a woman's self-esteem and self-worth. "Put on Your Crown," is a must-have book for every woman looking for an uplifting read.

I'm really curious to hear on her perspective. As a celebrity, she seems so untouchable, so it's awesome she's making her private life available to the masses

Queen Latifah is such a strong lady- I'd be interested in reading what she has to say.

P.S.I can't wait until her new moview comes out. ;)

Queen Latifah always looks so beautiful and classy. I'm curious to hear her story, b/c it seems she's been a bit quiet after her U.N.I.T.Y days...

Rebee said...

I'm really excited about this book. I've been a fan of Queen Latifah for a long time and I think she has a lot of positivity to share.

I'd love to read that book. Queen has accomplished a lot in her young years. And I would love to see what she says about being comfortable in your own skin esp. since she doen't fit the normal standards of beauty in hollywood but has nonetheless made a name for herself and looks beautiful at her size.

Becky said...

I would love to read her book. She has went through a metamorphosis.

Angela said...

I would love to read this book and see what she has to share. Thanks!

Good stuff. I'll add this to my Amazon wish list. I love the Queen because she's herself in every setting. At the Oscars, on red carpets, TV shows, everywhere, what you see is what you get and I love that about her. I wish her much continued success.

Can't wait to read this one!
