Queen Latifah is ready for kids and is planning to adopt a baby in the near future.The actress, who can be sing in the upcoming movie Ice Age 4, told the audience that she is settling down to have a family which could mean that she would maybe take a break from the film industry.
“I’m actually kind of working on that. I just always wanted to bring a child home,” she said to ABC’s The View. “I’m totally serious, so if you got a kid that you don’t want… just give me a year – let me set up camp and send me the kid. But no, no [I’m] totally [serious about adopting].”
Latifah recently spoke out about her sexuality, saying that she didn’t attend a gay pride at Long Beach to clear the rumors that she was a lesbian, according to her, she just went there to have some fun. The actress explains that she’s always going to these events, and even revealed that rapper, Tupac was a regular at gay clubs too. She says: “That definitely wasn’t the case. I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.”
“To me, doing a gay pride show is one of the most fun things,” she said. “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. I know that the most important thing and the only thing I have to give is love.”
