Queen Latifah Lends Her Support To Grieving Jada Pinkett-Smith

This is very sweet!

Queen Latifah was awarded the Essence Black Women In Hollywood Power Award, and her bud Jada Pinkett-Smith was on hand to present her with the honor, despite having just lost her father!!

So sad!!

Girlfriend was clearly emotional during her speech and said:

"My father died last week, and I'm flying tomorrow to bury him. But I wanted to come because when those types of losses happen a lot of things get illuminated and your priorities fall in line. When I think about Latifah I think about a woman who makes me feel loved. She can sit in the throne of my soul and just be there with me. She makes me laugh."

At that point she became so choked up she couldn't speak - until the Queen came onto the stage to comfort her!!

We say this with 100% sincerity - Queen Latifah is a class act! And clearly a wonderful friend!

Pinkett-Smith finally was able to finish her introduction by simply stating:

"This is what I'm talking about. I don't see her a lot, but she's my girl."

We commend both of them for being great, sincere friends!! We can't imagine losing your father so recently and being brave enough to step out in public, and the Queen's actions speak for themselves!!

We wish Jada our deepest condolences for her loss.

    Aw. That was sweet :(

    They look like trannies in that picture above. Do they really think their Dollar Store hair looks real?



  5. 5

    Is that Queen Latifa in the picture or that chubby girl from Precious? I know that black guys like a big girl, but the Queen plays for the other team so do black girls look for the same? I have no idea and never real thought about it before…

    Who wants to get freaky on the phone with me right now??

    FOUR ONE ZERO - SEVEN ZERO THREE - ONE ZERO TWO ONE

    Jada is always so beautiful and The Queen is just the Queen!

    aww I lost my father years ago and I still get choked up about it! That was sweet of the Queen to offer her support! :) But really does Jada think that hair LOOKS GOOD cuz it doesnt! She needs to go back to the short cuts they fit her so much better!

    they're lovers

    Love, love, love the Queen!

    In fact, I wish she'd go into politics and eventually run for president. I have never heard her say anything even remotely stupid, and as far as race relations go, we could all learn from this supremely enlightened woman. She's just amazing. The woman shines. The woman is touched by god. I mean her momma did good! Talk about the wisdom of Solomon! Queen, the country needs YOU!

    Loved how she told Joy Behar the other night that she would never exploit any child she may adopt. Way to go, Queen!

    Hail to the Queen! There is no other like Latifah! Only blessings and made love and happiness for the Queen. So regal this woman. Did I say I LOVE her?

    Awww, sorry for your loss. You love for him will carry him on forever. I named my daughter Jada



  12. 12

    Covergirl might reconsider having Queen Latifah in their commercials after seeing this horrible makeup on her. Who did this to her? They must hate her…or did she do this to herself? Awful!



  13. 13

    Re: Brainbug – yeah they both look bad but at least Jada has an excuse. lol



  14. 14

    I just can't believe the Haters that come on this site. Don't give me shit about not coming on here either, I enjoy a good goss, but it's seriously tragic that some of you feel no emotion at all.

    what kind of person would NOT come on stage and put an arm around someone who was crying? I would have done it and I can't stand Jada Pinkett Smith. I have to give her props here though for using the word DIE, as in "MY FATHER DIED" — he didn't "pass away" and he wasn't lost, he DIED, so good for her!

    Queen Latifah is a talented person.

    "deepest condolences" — try some shallow ones.



  16. 16

    I'm sorry, but that was a very selfish speech she gave. It was all about her, and not Queen Latifah.



  17. 17

    cute blog for once Perez! Kudos



  18. 18

    Re: poshbabygia – THANK YOU! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT. WHY THE HELL WOULD JADA MAKE A "SPEECH" ALL ABOUT HER?! IT WAS QUEEN'S NIGHT AND SHE TURNED IT INTO IT BEING ALL ABOUT HER. SORRY, YOU LOST YOUR FATHER JADA BUT THAT WAS JUST FUCKIN SELFISH!



  19. 19

    DAMN…WHAT HAPPENED TO JENNIE CRAIG? SHE MUST HAVE CALLED JENNIE AND HUNG UP! WOW



  20. 20

    I love Jada and the Queen — but I hate the Queen's make-up! WTF? For a Covergirl spokesperson, you'de think someone could do a better job.



  21. 21

    Prayers to Jada's family. And what a great friend Latifah is.

  26. 26

    So does her father come back as an alien in a volcano or is he an asteroid?



  27. 27

    Re: EvaDiva – That is so not funny! I love my Queen BIG! I think when she lost weight she didn't have the same beauty she does now! All you shallow SHOULD be size 2 fuckers need to STFU ! PUT your PICS up here HA Id love to see what WE ALL HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ALL YOU ASSHOLES!



  28. 28

    Is there anything Jada Pinkett won't keep private? She won't stop blabbing about her glorious sex life, shoves her kids into movies and onto red carpets. . . so annoying and irrelevant. If the evening was supposed to be about Queen Latifah, why even mention her own father's death? Self-centered bitch! No one would even remember who she is if she weren't married to Will Smith.



  29. 29

    …and then they went home to scissor



  30. 30

    yes we wish you well jada! that was very big of you though i feel the same way of queen latifah as well. i love her! very big of you,…you two are evolved souls!!!



  31. 31

    Would love to see a video of this so if you can post the video whenever it's available, that'd be appreciated! :)

    First off, my sincere condolences goes out to Jada & family. It's never easy losing someone you love. Secondly, the picture above was taken a few years ago, when Queen was out promoting the secret lives of the bees. She actually wore a white suit at the black women essence awards, and Jada wore a cream dress.



  33. 33

    I love, love, LOVE Queen Latifah, but she is looking pasty and heavy in this photo. She has a beautiful face and she doesn't look good with the extra weight rounding out her face.



  34. 34

    :( Sorry to hear about that.
