I have a terrible habit of checking to see what or who is trending on Yahoo whenever I access my email account. Once in a while the list has a news item or name that interests me, but usually it’s just a bunch of foolishness. Most of the real news will hit Twitter first, then filter down to the trending lists.
Today, Queen Latifah was on the list and I couldn’t resist. I’ve been a fan of the Queen for a long time.
And what to my wandering eyes should appear?
Nothing! Nada! Zip!
It was the same old song we’ve been hearing since forever and I’m still not understanding why people are so concerned with her sexual preferences. Or the sexual preferences of any other person for that matter.
Apparently, Queen Latifah made a recent appearance at the LGBT Pride Festival in Long Beach California and tongues started wagging again. The speculation regarding her sexuality has been going on so long that at this point I have to ask: Why? How does the answer to that question affect the lives of the questioners? I’ve never understood the desire to know details of another’s personal life.
I’m not talking about entertainers behaving like idiots. They deserve what they get. I’m speaking strictly…Personal, as in who they sleep (have sex) with.
I’ve heard and read all of the stupid reasons that have been given in an attempt to justify violating another human being. None of them hold water, but, “It comes with the territory,” is probably the most despicable. What “territory” are they talking about? Is there a territory called, “Entertainers are not allowed privacy?” Most of them are hard working, law abiding, tax paying citizens.
Lines should be drawn and as long as an adult is not sleeping with children, they should be afforded the right to privacy.
