Why is she called Queen Latifah? She's not a Queen!

She is an actress and she has done other things but she is no Queen. I have nothing against her, I just want to know.

  • It was the name she gave herself as a rapper - like the Fresh Prince. I don't get it either, but to each her own.

  • And Prince is not a Prince. I think they're just names.

  • She is trying to make women feel like royalty. Dana Owens created the name Queen Latifaha's a response to male rappers referring to women negatively in their songs.

  • Queen Latifah got her name originally back when she was a rapper and not an actress. So its just a stage name that stuck with her.

  • She is/was a rapper and that was her stage name back in the day and I guess it stuck.
