Queen Latifah Is To Open A Fast Food Restaurant.


Queen Latifah will attend the opening of the FatBurger diner in Miami.

The 'Hairspray' star will attend the opening of the FatBurger diner in Miami later this week and admits she is excited about the franchise extending across America.

She said: "That was part of my Los Angeles education. On Sundays in California everybody would come out in all these low-riders. FatBurger was, like, the centerpiece for it all."
Meanwhile, Latifah recently revealed she is keen to adopt an American child because she wants to "help a kid in the hood".

The rapper-and-actress - real name Dana Owens - is determined to adopt in the US and has levelled a veiled criticism at stars like Angelina Jolie and Madonna who have adopted from abroad.
She told US chat show host Ellen Degeneres: "I want to help a kid in the hood. I want to adopt an American baby. There's just so many kids that could use a home."

Angelina Jolie has three adopted children from Cambodia, Thailand and Ethiopia with boyfriend Brad Pitt. Madonna caused controversy last October when she and her director husband Guy Ritchie adopted one-year-old David Banda from Malawi. Other stars who have adopted from another country include Meg Ryan and Ewan McGregor.
