Inching Out Of The Closet

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayQueen LatifahLGBT

16384pcn_latifah017.jpg

Queen Latifah took her longtime 'gal pal' Jeanette Jenkins as her date to the New York City premiere of Hairspray this week!

However, things did not go so smoothly for the undercover lover.

This interaction between Jeanette and a reporter was priceless.

Latifah's longtime personal trainer Jeanette Jenkins was by the actress' side - on hand for any last-minute workouts, we presume. Asked if she has a boyfriend, Jenkins stammered, "I'm in a relationship. I have been for a long time," before beating a hasty retreat down the red carpet past "Hairspray" stars John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken and Nikki Blonsky.

Ha! Making the lesbians angry.

Be careful. They might beat you up!

    I'm the first commenter!
    OK, I still don't think Queen Latifah is a lesbian. I don't care if she goes to the movie opening of hairspray with a girl…MAYBE SHE DOESN'T HAVE ANYONE TO DATE!

    What's with all this "first" shit? Are you guys such geeks that you try to just be the first person to post something rather than comment? Why don't you suck on Queen Latifah's cooch!?

    She goes both ways…there has been speculation for years. So what if you like the licky licky Queen!

    well that would explain how she manages to be so awesome instead of acting like a dumb bitch like every straight girl on earth right now … like u reading this

    Does anyone really care if she is a lesbian or not?!?!?!
    Dana, it is ok, come out, we still love you. Think how much easier your life would be. Be an example for the Hip Hop community. After you, 50 Cent.
    Do it! Do it!

    Geez! Would she just come out already! Whoever thinks she isn't gay is in denial. Love you Perez!

  22. karina says – reply to this


    22

    I guess that explains why even tho she's hanging out with a personal trainer she hasn't lost any weight ;) hehehe.

  23. slam says – reply to this


    23

    Their is such a stigma in the black community about being gay. I mean, yes, you, open minded, probably white, probably young america has no problem with it but what about the close minded, bible beaters, granma's, what about covergirl? what about her image to young women, i mean it's alot and perez needs to lay the fuck off. Just because you're gay.. is anyone asking you to be the face of anything? or the voice?
    Dana, just be you. Who needs to know, knows. period.

  24. anna says – reply to this

    so what if she's a lesbian? thats old news.

  26. Jeff says – reply to this


    26

    YEAH PEREZ!!! you rule! we need another "Lancing". Get her to come out. then get Travolta. he's close and shouldn't be too hard to get evidence the way he's been doggin' around steamrooms. LETS DO THIS!!
    and if you "Lance" Tom Cruise you will be an american ICON!

    shes cool, shes just needs to admit shes a cool lesbian

  29. Tru says – reply to this


    29

    I do not understand the obsession of outing people. It is (1) none of any ones business what their sexuality is and (2) if they want to come out then they should, but no one should force them to come out (just as no one should force them to stay in).

  30. ben says – reply to this


    30

    oh queenie, just come out and play for our team… the uniforms are so much cuter.

    and as for slam, coming out shouldn't affect latifah's advertising jobs or public image. and it would give young african-american women struggling with their sexuality someone to look up to. "Gay" is not an insult (or at least it shouldn't be). There are much worse insults than "gay" such as "stupid" or "untalented."

    I am so glad to see that the skills you learned as a fat, sad little gay boy in High School are paying off for you. Yay for you Perez Hilton.

    Queen Latifah rocks.

    I sooo have a girl-crush on Latifah. She would be an awesome girlfriend!

  35. Cas says – reply to this


    35

    yeah, she is…i used to live in atlanta a few yrs ago and one of my roommates told me she saw her in this club - in the ladies restroom. my roomie saw her all up in the grill of another woman and it looked alot more than friendly.

    #22 KARINA SAID WHAT I'VE BEEN THINKING: HOW CAN QUEEN SPEND SO MUCH TIME WITH A TRAINER AND STILL NOT LOSE WEIGHT OR TONE UP. I SAW HER ON "LIVING SINGLE" A FEW DAYS AGO AND SHE WAS THINNER THAN SHE IS NOW EVEN THOUGH NOW SHE HAS A 24 HOUR "TRAINER" ….I LOVE QUEEN LATIFAH ANYWAY…AND I LOVE CAPS LOCK!

    39

    Who the fuck cares? It's her business! Stop trying to "out" people, Perez. If she's gay, it's up to her whether she wants to make it public or not. What she does behind closed bedroom doors is nobody's business but her own.

    she must be eating her trainer out a lot more than working out. it shows! she still is a decent…actor.

    51

    Perez… just because you feel the need to shout your sexuality from the roof tops

    (Im gay Im gay Im gay; man meat is my favorite treat…*yawn* )

    doesn't mean that everyone else has to.

    Why arent you all over straight people to continually tell us that their straight?

    The people in the Queen's circle know her sexual preference. She is honest with herself, and with the people that matter to her.

    Sorry U dont make that list.

  52. honeydoo says – reply to this


    52

    that must have been one hell of a workout for her to be that errm fat.

    53

    I happen to know Dana and she played b-ball with my aunt (who is only 5 years older than me) and 90% of all the girls that played with these 2 particular school teams in the area are lesbian or bi. That includes my aunt. Anyway who cares I still love her work. Perez stop trying to knock others hustle…

  54. natasha says – reply to this


    54

    i think it would be nice if she would come out the closet already.
    love queen latifah gay or not

  55. jrzladee says – reply to this


    55

    Just because she has not gone to the media to specifically get quoted as saying she is gay does NOT mean she is in the closet. It just means that her personal life is just that…PERSONAL. She does not owe it to the public to disclose what she does in her bedroom! It is not required of us heteros to give out our sexuals positions so leave her alone.

  56. bourgeoiscowboy says – reply to this


    56

    Assuming that Queen Latifah actually is a lesbian (which hasn't really been proven), her refusal to come out of the closet publicly indicates some sort of shame in her sexuality (she has portrayed herself as a straight woman in the public eye in the past) - if she were to come out, she could have a lot influence, particularly toward young black women who might be facing similar problems, or who might be feeling some sort of shame about herself. That being said, she still shouldn't be outed against her will… it's still her decision.

    59

    Dana's Hood Classic is "Set It Off" and she played a hard lesbian. And again she has NEVER refused to "come out of the closet". Perez is the one that thinks he discovered something. Where we come from it is not that big of a deal whether a person is gay and if they are whether they are flamboyant or just chill. It is no big deal! Dana is a product of her environment. Only the media and the GRO are making a big deal like they want everyone to shout it out so they can say "Look we are not a minority!" I have never seen so many people itching to announce how they get down in their bedroom! Just live your own life and let her live hers!

  60. jrzladee says – reply to this


    60

    And for the record young black women do not need anyone to show them how to be gay! They need someone to show them how to be young black women regardless of their sexual preference! Me personally, I think it is wrong BUT I would give my last for my aunt who I grew up with not to mention all the others in my family and EVERYONE is treated the same. We do not feel it necessary to make it the foundation of every conversation. Life is life.

    She's gay and so what good for her. I say her a few years ago in a Girl/Girl club in NYC she was low key the girls knew she was there and it wasn't a big deal.

    64

    Dana and I went to the same high school in New Jersey. She is a great gal and I believe she has lived her life honestly. I believe in my heart that she will someday "come out" but she will chose to do it on her own terms; she will not be "outed." She will decide the "where and when" and I think this is her choice and a personal choice. So, leave her alone and respect her talent and ability. I love her so much and everything she does. Respect her wishes.

  65. whocares says – reply to this


    65

    First of all she is not in the closet. Seems to me she has been on the Set WORKING HER ASS OFF!!! She is not a punk. Broadcasting your business to a bunch of nosie people is not something to be admired. Perez how often do u inform your readers when u are getting it up the ass. But we still read your blog. So mind your own business and worry about your own sex life and make sure you use a rubber. I would hate for you to succumb to some deadly illness.

  66. Barbara says – reply to this


    66

    When are people going to stop being so judgemental. She is her own person who just happens to be talented. Her "orientation" does NOT matter in the least. She has a good heart and that is all that matters.

    P.S. Elisabitch is still a cunt !!!!

    73

    I wish that every homosexual, gay, lesbian, etc. could feel comfortable enough in this world not to worry about who they walk down the street with, live with, love with, etc. without fear of losing their livelyhood. It pains me to believe that honesty about ones sexuality would prevent "fans" from enjoying an entertainers talents. Also, it is absolutely no one's business who sleeps with whom or MARRIES.

  74. frogsmama says – reply to this


    74

    Mario(?), I agree with you about outing. It may be a bit brutal, but will eventually have the needed effect…. enlightenment. We all need to lighten up on everyone's personal business and focus on what is offered of importance.

    Though I haven't seen Latifah in a long time i used to know her quite well and my partner worked with her for years. She is a class act. A decent person and not at all a full-of-herself shit like most actors & actresses I know. Just leave her alone

    Long well known that Queen Latifah is a Lesbian. But she Grew up in the Oranges of N.J. along side Naughty By Nature. That was a While ago and we all Assumed / Knew. She is a Hero in my Eyes She grew up in a Rough Side of town and had a Great Musical / Hip Hop Persona for the Woman like me to Respect.
    Search Ladies First and another Great one UNITY. To see her in Movies with other Great Actors makes me Smile and I am as Thrilled as she is. Lesbian because she feels the need to not to put herself out there just goes to show 10 years later she has not chosen to come out of the Closet because she is HAPPY just where she is at! Holla Back Sista!! Perez Back the F up With my GIRL. Do some Research before all the Gangstas in NJ Come pay a visit to L.A.

    I DO think the Queen is gay. I mean I've never EVER seen or heard of her linked with a man in all these years. I also don't have a problem with it if she is. Good for her. If she is, she has certainly kept it under wraps successfully thus far.

    After her breast reduction,and those dyked out pics of her riding a motorcycle and on the beach Latifah fell off my hot list

    83

    How come every time a black women makes it in hollywood and shows her independence by not needing a man all up under her to define her worthiness, she has to be gay??? Stop trying to make Oprah gay too…don't hate! Admire and Assimilate. Also Queen Latifah isn't "so fat" her body is more than you are used to or can handle. We don't follow that height and weight requirement brainwashing.

  84. kerrscott says – reply to this


    84

    so freaking what! People have a right to keep their sexual orientation private - it is an extremely private issue. Perez you really have no right to discuss gay rights issue, not until you learn to respect the people's fundamental right to live their lives and have careers without discussing their sexual orientation.

  85. Madmaggie says – reply to this


    85

    Oh so what? who cares if she is or isn't gay? Not everyone has to publicly declare their sexual preferences. If she wants to come out fine, if not, she's entitled to keep it quiet.

  86. Perez You SUCK says – reply to this


    86

    Who cares if she is gay. You need to get a life and stop outing people. worry about yourself.

    NO!!!!!! Queen Latifah is most certainly NOT GAY!!!! How can you automatically assume that my all-time favorite actress is a lesbian????

    i'm not trying to be mean, because it doesn't seem like u are when i watched Kathy Griffen! But I have a lot of love and respect for queen latifah! and i am highly offended that you would say that about her! she is a self respecting woman that deserves respect!!!
    QUEEN LATIFAH IS NOTTTT GAY!

  95. fed up says – reply to this


    95

    Also… Just because you don't see her with a man doesn't mean anything! What if she just wants to keep her love life private because the media… LIKE YOU…. screws up everything…
    And even if she is gay… does that mean anything? she's still going to be a talented actress. with high self esteem. and u need to calm down with those fat jokes gurl… She is a curvaceous woman! and she's proud of it. So I like the Queen just like she is and i am not a homo~!~
