Queen Latifah Reveals She Was Asked to Lose Weight For “Living Single”



Queen Latifah as we all know has never taken crap from anyone about her body. In a new interview, she opened up about her body-shaming experiences in the ’90s. She recalls being told to lose weight on a set of ‘Living Single’.

“I can remember specifically doing ‘Living Single’ and the word came down that we needed to lose weight. Here we are, four different women, four different body types, and we needed to lose weight,” Latifah, 51, recalled to “Entertainment Tonight” Thursday.

She also remembers sticking up for her co-stars.

“If anything, it angered me and disheartened me, but it really angered me,” she said. “I said, ‘We are what women look like. We’re not going to lose weight for whoever’s the idea of what we’re supposed to look like.’”

Queen Latifah is now fighting to stop body shaming. We love her the way she is!
