Queen Latifah made a big statement when she officiated the mass wedding of 34 gay and straight couples at the Grammys Sunday night. She even shared some behind-the-scenes moments from the historic event with fans on The Queen Latifah Show.
Some critics are crying foul, however, because the actress-rapper has never discussed her own sexuality in public (and has been the subject of countless lesbian rumors). They feel it’s hypocritical for a closeted star to attempt to stand up for LGBT equality. Others think it’s enough to be a part of the movement, and she can share her truth in her own time.
We’re not gonna take a side—or speculate about “Tifah’s orientation—but we almost spit out our gum when we went to the website for her talk show this morning and were invited to look inside “Queen Latfifah’s closet.”
Turns out they were being literal: Queen’s Closet is a segment that lets fans check out the fashions and accessories she sports on the show.
Still, we have to believe that webmaster has a delicious sense of irony.
