Happy birthday, queen!
The 24-year-old Queen Latifah has been crowned the youngest queen in history, becoming the youngest American to be crowned by a female judge at the Royal Variety Performance in New York City on Wednesday.
In an exclusive interview with FOX News, Latifamah said she was “blessed” to be given the honor.
“I’m so grateful for all of you who have given me the opportunity to be queen,” she said.
“I feel like I’m a role model for so many young women.
I’m honored that I can be so happy that I get to do that.”
Latifalah has appeared in a string of TV shows, including “The Apprentice,” “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” and “The Voice.”
Latifiah was born in Pakistan in 2011, but grew up in the United States.
“I was born and raised in America, so I am proud of my heritage,” she told Fox News.
“My mother is Pakistani and my father is Pakistani.
My grandfather was from Pakistan, and my grandmother was from Iran.”
She said that her mother, who grew up on the streets of New York, had to sell her clothes to survive.
“She went through the streets for a while, but she learned how to sell them,” she recalled.
“She also worked as a maid.
I don’t think she even had a name for herself.”
After graduating from high school in New Jersey, Latifiad came to the U.S. at age 19, where she lived in Manhattan for a time before moving to Queens to study at the prestigious Columbia University School of Journalism.
When she was in her early 20s, she got engaged to a man named Omar Khadr, a U.K.-born Guantanamo Bay detainee who died in Afghanistan in 2010.
As she was finishing up her law degree, she married Khadr.
But after Khadr was freed from Guantanamo Bay, Latifaamah’s marriage fell apart and she divorced Khadr in 2013.
Latifaamha, who also goes by the stage name Latifanah, has made a name as a TV personality and activist.
She was a regular guest on “The View” and was featured in the film “The Princess Bride,” starring Marion Cotillard.
And in 2014, Latifeah was honored with the Humanitarian Award from the International Campaign for the Arts and the World Vision International Award for Women in Media.
Now Latifaah has announced her next project.
On Wednesday, Latipolah is scheduled to host the annual celebration of the American film, “Logan Lucky.”
“It’s really a celebration of all of the amazing American movies and what made America great,” Latifas said.
Her new project is called “Love of the City,” a documentary about the gay culture of New Yorkers, which she said has influenced her own life.
The film will be screened at the annual festival in Los Angeles.
