Queen Latifah Backpeddles: I Did Not Come Out! (I’m Still In The Closet)

Well it was just a matter of time.

Queen Latifah aka Dana Elaine Owens told Entertainment Weekly that  because of the way that some  members in the audience and the media received her words when she appeared at Long Beach Pride (and despite the fact that EVERYONE knows) that she definitely DID NOT COME OUT OF THE CLOSET

“That definitely wasn’t the case,” she tells EW. “I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.” That said, the 42-year old was thrilled to participate in the event and even recalled an earlier performance for gay audiences. “To me, doing a gay pride show is one of the most fun things,” she says. “My first show that paid more than $10,000 was in a gay club on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco. Tupac happened to be in town, so he came to kick it with me. This was the early ’90s. And the boys were like, ‘Take your shirt off, Tupac!’ He wasn’t doing that. But we had a blast in there.”

You know what DANA?  YOU are an embarrassment.  Not only to yourself but to the LGBT community because once again instead of being a role model you send the message loud and clear that sexual orientation and LGBT identity is something embarrassing,  shameful, and not important

Do us a favor Queen Latifah,  NEVER COME OUT.  Because frankly, after this stunt.  I don’t think any of us want you to be one of us anymore.

So Dana, continue to hide in that glass closet that fools no one, while taking our money until the day you think your career is over and coming out can do no “damage”.

So whats your next move Queenie?  Going to marry Kevin Spacey?
