Queen Latifah covers the upcoming issue of More magazine and talks about her plans to adopt, ageing gracefully and having regrets.
On adopting: “I’m definitely going to adopt – or have – a child. I’ve wanted to adopt since I was 17 or 18-years-old.
On growing old and plastic surgery: “When I was a kid, I was always the younger one hanging with older cool people. I’ve met so many people all through my life who made growing older look good. Look at Jamie Lee Curtis, not getting plastic surgery and not changing her hair.”
On having regrets: “I don’t have any regrets. If I could have talked to my 19 or 20-year-old self, I would have said: ‘You’re going to be fine. It ain’t that serious!’ When you’re young, it’s like: ‘Oh my God, it’s the end of the world!’”
Jennifer Hudson is covering the December/January issue of Ebony Magazine and in it, she talks about size zero backlash… Jennifer has received both praise and critics for her tremendous weight loss. She puts it this way…
I am going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View. Hell I wasn’t even on the show. I never said I was a size zero. I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero.
I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size.’ Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that.
