Queen Latifah shines on the cover of the latest issue of Parade Magazine out this Sunday (January 2). The 40-year-old singer and host of the upcoming People’s Choice Awards, shared a few life lessons in the latest issue.
Where she hopes to be in 10 years : “On cruise control, with a couple of kids under my belt,” Queen Latifah shared. “It’s in the Lord’s hands.”
On growing up in Jersey : “There’s something about growing up in New Jersey that prepares you for whatever you might encounter around the world. We’re not afraid to go places. I met Mike ‘The Situation’ [from Jersey Shore] because we were both on Jay Leno. He lives maybe 15 minutes from me. He was like, ‘If you ever get a flat tire, call me and I’ll hook you up.’ I love Jersey.”
On giving advice to future royal Kate Middleton : “Make sure you have a sanctuary, because everybody in the world is going to be in your business. He 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. And don’t take anything personally.”
