Queen Latifah talks Super Bowl, new music
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- You can expect more music from Queen Latifah.
The entertainer, who sang "America the Beautiful" at Sunday's Super Bowl, says she's working on new music, and she'll use her talk show to promote it.
"I'm already working on stuff with that," she said of the new music. "I can kind of interweave that with the talk show. ...It's time to jack another day at the show, give the interviews a break for one day and just perform and rock the crowd. So, I have the best platform to do it."
"The Queen Latifah Show" launched last year. The rapper-singer, whose hits include "U.N.I.T.Y.," last released music in 2009 with "Persona."
She said performing at the opening of the Super Bowl was historic and comes with great responsibility.
"Anybody who takes it as a joke ... to me, I don't know if they really get it," she said backstage after her performance. "This is moment where for a change we all can ... come together and (have) a sense of pride, and not really worry about anything else that goes on Monday morning."
