Queen Latifah told CBS's "The Early Show" about her latest project, which she said is meant to teach kids about self-respect. The protagonist of "Queen of the Scene" beats the boys at basketball and leads crowds at the playground, all the while rhyming about strength and pride.
"Queen of the Scene" is not the first book Queen Latifah has written. "Ladies First: Revelations of a Strong Woman" (1999) was meant to promote higher self-esteem in women.
Latifah received an Oscar nomination for supporting actress in "Chicago" (2002) for her role as Mama Morton. She will be seen in the upcoming movie "Hairspray" based on the Broadway musical.
