Things have been looking up for Queen Latifah since her talk show was cancelled last year. The 45-year-old actor is starring in a musical biopic for HBO!
Queen plays iconic blues singer Bessie Smith in Bessie. And if the teaser is any indication, sh*t gets cray! Bessie is throwing vases, SANGIN her heart out on stage, and making out in the back seat of a car with Michael K. Williams — aka Omar from The Wire!
Get it, Bessie!
Watch the video (above) to see the teaser for this provocative blues biopic, airing May 16 on HBO!
