Queen Latifah on her lesbian sex scenes in the HBO film, Bessie, about legendary blues singer, and ALLEGED lesbian, Bessie Smith:
“People feel a type of way when they see any sexuality on-screen. I think it's almost human nature. People are so fascinated by it. It shouldn’t even be a discussion. But it is, because people are still curious, and people still wonder how they feel about things. At the end of the day I don’t really care if someone feels uncomfortable about it. It is what it is, and it’s life. So you either deal with it or not. It’s just part of who she is, and I had to tell the story honestly.”
It’s funny to me, and ironic and annoying, that Latifah, feels a sense of duty to honestly tell Bessie’s story, including the many supposed relationships she had with women, while Latifah is a closeted lesbian herself and says that her sexual orientation, or personal life is no one’s business.
But, I guess if someone’s giving you a paycheck, you’ll tell their “story.”
Too bad there were no pictures of Bessie making out with her girlfriend on a yacht like the ones that surfaced a couple of years ago with Latifah kissing ion her girlfriend.
Dana Dana Dana; you are a hypocrite.
