The “U.N.I.T.Y.” Queen weighs in.
Kelly Rippa says she thought of Queen Latifah when the whole thing went down.
“Don’t you think that these two women should collaborate on an album and have the number 1 album, for like, 3 years in a row? Don’t you think that should happen? […] Could you, Queen Latifah, show them the way?”
Queen insists on female empowerment. She believes that they should harness their energy into their music within which taking shots at anyone and everyone for sport is fair game.
“I’m up for a real ‘brouhaha’ and a ‘dustup,’ but not for these ladies. I have a lot of respect for female rappers. We are such a powerful minority. And I say powerful in the sense that if you hear a female rapper’s record come through on the radio, you hear that record, you know that record, you memorize that record. We just stand out […] I’d really rather see ’em shoot the fair one on a record and take everybody out.”
Latifah would welcome the collaborative project between the rivals.
“I could produce it, wrap it, executive produce it. ‘We Are The World’ situation.”
