The name Latifah means delicate and sensitive in Arabic, and Dana Owens always thought of herself as having a soft side that the world overlooked. She chose Queen Latifah as her stage name when she earned her first record contract in 1988. Since then, Queen Latifah has earned a place in rap history as one of the first female MCs. With her music, she inspires young women to be bold, active, and proud.

Queen Latifah is a multi-talented woman, who has succeeded in television and film as well as in music. She has acted in dozens of movies, and in 2003 was nominated for an Academy Award. One of the busiest entertainers working today, Queen Latifah continues showing the world what she can do one successful project at a time.
