And Now for Some Inspirational Words from Queen Latifah

Did you guys have a good weekend? Because I did, but I am so tired. I got a new apartment in a new town with my boyfriend, and I learned that I own approximately seven thousand more items than I thought I did, but hardly anything that I actually need. Friday night was spent huddled and shivering because we refused to turn on the way-too-expensive heat, and Saturday night was spent shopping for things like plates and cleaning supplies and dish towels and oh my God these rugs cost HOW MUCH? And, in the middle of all that, I chopped all my hair off. So yeah, it’s been a pretty eventful weekend.

I’m sure many of you had a lot going on this weekend as well, so let’s just take a moment for Queen Latifah to make us feel beautiful, as only Queen Latifah can:

“People say, ‘You have such beautiful skin!’ But guess what? I get pimples, too. I mean, (expletive), I’m a woman, I have hormones. Who knows what is going on? I’ve just got to roll with it. … The reality is, I like imperfection. You take away from the world when you’re not yourself. Whatever is unique and special about you was designed by God. And when you try to be someone else, we don’t get you.”

Breathe in … aaaaaand … release. Thanks, Queen! You always know just what to say!

Wait, Queen Latifah Is Going to Be on Dancing with the Stars?

When I think of cast members of Dancing with the Stars, I think of people like The Situation and Bristol Palin and Kirstie Alley, you know, people who either shouldn’t be famous but are or people who used to be famous a long time ago for doing things like starring in movies about babies with John Travolta. Not people like Queen Latifah. But, you know, I can’t always be an overflowing fountain of wisdom and certainty, because it looks like the Queen herself will be joining the cast of the show for its next season.

Other contestants that we know of are Snooki (can’t wait!), Rob Kardashian, and, perhaps Tiffani Thiessen. And those all make sense, I’m fine with those lamers, but Queen Latifah was nominated for an Academy Award. She’s too good for this, right?
