Queen Latifah

A member of hip hop royalty ever since she burst on the scene with her debut album, All Hail the Queen, Latifah put her brains, business savvy and infectious personality to work to build a media empire. The Grammy winner and Oscar nominee is also a CoverGirl, and recently launched her eponymous talk show.
