The Queen of Kings

The Queen has a new album out, and darn it if she is not looking like a king on it – a drag king, that is. Queen Latifah’s new album “Persona” came out Tuesday. On it she experiments with several styles – or personas if you will. Lovely idea. But, of course, the only persona I care about right now is her butch one. Because, make no mistake, this is not an isolated incident. Our Queen has a tendency to butch it up both on and off screen to delicious effect. It’d be easy to speculate about the reason for her butch tendencies (cough, The Gay, cough). But I’d rather just enjoy the aesthetic. All hail the queen of kings.

All hail!! Such a great collection of such very gay photos.

We watched the Chicago DVD on a whim a couple of weekends ago, and she certainly does know how to play a prison matron, if you know what I mean. And those pipes!

Sigh. Just come out, my Queen.
