Because of Latifah's portrayal of a lesbian in Set It Off and her avoidance of discussing her romantic life, tabloid media have at times speculated on her sexual orientation. Latifah, neither confirming nor denying, responded to these rumors in her autobiography by saying: "It's insulting when someone asks, 'Are you gay?' A woman cannot be strong, outspoken, competent at running her own business, handle herself physically, play a very convincing role in a movie, know what she wants—and go for it—without being gay? Come on." Queen Latifah is a supporter of same sex marriage and other gay rights issues. In early 2003, Latifah had breast reduction surgery in order to resolve a health issue of back pain. Latifah also works out with a trainer and kickboxes. Queen Latifah played Mama in the movie Chicago.

Actress and old school rapper Queen Latifah misses the old breasts that she had reduced by a few cup sizes through plastic surgery.
The 37-year old Latifah got a breast reduction in 2003, which downsized her F size breasts to a double D cup size, as a way to reduce shoulder and back pain from carrying such a heavy “load”.
Speaking about her breast reduction to People, Latifah explains how she did not want to have the breast reduction but was left with no choice after trying to lose weight as a way to lighten her weight on top.
“I didn’t want to get it. But I had lost 25 pounds and my breasts didnt go anywhere! I was still carrying that load,” she says.
Now, a few years later she admits to missing her old curves and jokes how her surgeon was over aggressive in her breast reduction.
“I didn’t quite want them to be this small,” says Queen Latifah.
“I was pretty big. Now I’m like a DD. I wanted to be a triple. They took one D too many! So that was hard to deal with. … I missed my old look.”
When asked about whether anymore plastic surgery might be in store for her, Queen Latifah completely rules it out.
“There are people who love (plastic surgery) and want to cut and chop anything. I’m like, ‘Y’all are crazy!’,” says Latifah.
Queen Latifah is a wonderful role model for women, as the actress has been outspoken about loving one’s body at any size. Latifah defies the size zero Hollyweird trend and shows to women that one can be attractive, confident and successful at voluptuous proportions.
