All hail The Queen!

Queen Latifah, who is starring with Dolly Parton in a movie called “Joyful Noise,” was spotted here in Atlanta over the weekend.

Her royal fabness stopped by Savvy Snoot in the West Side Provision District on Howell Mill on Sunday.

We’re told Latifah enjoyed browsing for a while and purchased three Savvy Snoot candles. The staff loved visiting with her (who wouldn’t?) and say they look forward to having her back.

Latifah has also stopped by the Mediterranean Grill at 10th and Monroe, enjoying the chicken plate and red lentil soup.

The Queen and Parton will be filming in Newnan next month. Here is a link to a story with more details about the project and shooting schedule.

@Orlando: also on Latifah’s Black Reign CD (1993) was a fave song of mine: “Rough”, a slammin’ rap combo with Latifah, Naughty By Nature, Heavy D and KRS 1 just workin’ the mike…..you should listen to it, she was damn good at it. :-)

Latifah is a fake. Today (1/28) one-year anniversary of the death Latifah’s make-up artist, Roxanna Floyd, who put Latifah on the map.
Latifah would have never entered into the cosmetics world without Roxanna. Did Latifah ever pay Roxanna or her estate the tens of thousands of dollars she owed her?
