Actress and rapper/singer Queen Latifah joins Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz on a yacht for the newlywed’s post-wedding festivities in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France. And the even cooler part is? Queen Latifah brings her longtime rumored girlfriend fitness guru Jeanette Jenkins along for the luxurious ride. The happy couple publicly shows an abundance of love and affection for each other. And for the often tight-lipped Queen Latifah, how progressive is this? Not that she owes us anything. We think it’s dope how the superstar negotiates her sexuality in the public space. Her motto: It’s none of your business.
The hip hop icon doesn’t dodge inquires on her sexual preference, and as of late, she hasn’t openly denied it. Queen Latifah is not looking to be the Black female poster child of GLAAD. She hasn’t given the habitual coming-out press conference, and she doesn’t wear her LGBT politics on her stylish sleeve. Queen Latifah is and has always been simply Queen. And we respect that.
