Itís Official: Queen Latifah Is a Star

Published: 2006-01-06
Rapper and actress Dana Owens, a.k.a. Queen Latifah, has become the first hip-hop artist with a star on Hollywood's famous walk of fame.

One of hip hop's pioneers, Latifah's debut album, All Hail the Queen, is a rap classic, while her third album, Black Reign, won a Grammy award.

After conquering the music world, the Queen set out to vanquish Hollywood, starting with a role in the TV sitcom Living Single. She later moved on to feature films like Beauty Shop and Bringin' Down the House and even received a best supporting actress nomination for her role in the musical Chicago.

In 2004 Latifah released her first studio album in six years, The Dana Owens Album, going in a different direction with a more jazz-influenced, blues-pop sound. The album was nominated for a Grammy.
