Queen Latifah has voiced her support for future princess Kate Middleton. The American rapper warned Prince William’s bride-to-be that once she is married, very little in her life will be private anymore. Addressing Middleton, 28, through Parade magazine, she said: “Make sure you have a sanctuary, because everybody in the world is going to be in your business. [Prince William] happened to be born a prince; you happened to go to college and meet him. You’re two kids who fell in love. I just hope you have a happy life.”

Queen Latifah was the first female rapper to become a star as well as the first MC who could be described as a feminist. Her third album, Black Reign, was the first album by a female MC ever to go gold. She has since branched out into other media, appearing in movies and sitcoms and even hosting her own talk show. Though she has been away from the recording studio for awhile she still remains as one of the most recognizable woman in hip-hop.
She has another accomplishment to add to her resume. She joined the Jenny Craig diet program in January and has reached her goal of losing 20 pounds. Congrats girl!
“I’m not caught up in how big or small I am, some people say they’re a skinny person trapped in a big girl’s body and I’ve never seen myself like that. I just feel like I could get a little healthier, so why not?” she says.
Queen decided to diet after reading:
“I had read that if you lost 5 percent of your body weight, you could cut your chances of things like heart disease in half. Jenny Craig mentioned the same statistic to me, so we connected on a health level.”
Queen, intends to stick with the company on a maintenance program:
“I feel good. I don’t feel all bloated and tired after a meal,” she says. “I haven’t had to sacrifice anything that I normally eat, I just eat a little bit less of it.”
At her heaviest, 5?10? Queen Latifah weighed about 240 pounds. She is thrilled to weigh around the 195 to 215 pound range: “I don’t want to be skinny.”
