Showbiz legend Queen Latifah was kind enough to take questions from our audience when she stopped by to chat with Rach, and revealed everything from her secret talent to the origins of her stage name.

“Queen Latifah” came from her mother teaching her that all women are queens, and Latifah means, “delicate, sensitive, kind, nice,” she explains.

She also talks about the surprising rapper she sometimes gets mistaken for, and shows off her special talent – a very enthusiastic version of “Happy Birthday.”
