Queen Latifah Talks Motherhood, Wants To Adopt Baby

Queen Latifah may be busy building out her Miami film studio and producing her upcoming talk show, but the rapper/actress is also making time to become a mother.

Latifah, born Dana Owens, made the revelations during an upcoming interview with More Magazine that features her on the cover.

“I’m definitely going to adopt – or have – a child,” Queen Latifah said. “I’ve wanted to adopt since I was 17 or 18-years-old.”

During the candid interview, Queen Latifah explained the impact that the death of her brother had early on in her career.

Lance Owens died almost 20 years ago, in 1992, after an accident on a motorcycle that Queen Latifah had purchased for him.

In her autobiography “Ladies First: Revelations of a Strong Woman,” Latifah revealed that Lance’s death lead to drug abuse and depression.

In her new interview with More Magazine, Latifah explained that since her brother’s untimely death, she has learned valuable life lessons.

“As my Aunt Elaine says, ‘You never get over it, but you get through it’,” Queen Latifah said. “I think the most important thing I’ve learned is to not stop living. I know for a fact that my brother would not want me to stay right there, stuck in that misery.”

I think the most important thing I’ve learned is to not stop living. I know for a fact that my brother would not want me to stay right there, stuck in that misery.”

Queen Latifah is currently producing a new daytime TV talk show with Will Smith’s Overbrook Productions, that will debut in 2013.

Additionally, she is slated to star in the flick “Joyful Noise” with Dolly Parton and KeKe Palmer this January.
