Latifah the new Queen of daytime?

LOS ANGELES — When Queen Latifah makes an entrance she does it with style.

Addressing reporters visiting the set of her new talk show recently, Latifah swanned onstage and did a song and dance routine complete with feather boa and backup dancers. Playing off her signature number in “Chicago,” “When You’re Good to Mama,” Latifah sang, “Got a little motto, always sees me through/ When you’re good to ’Tifah, ’Tifah’s good to you/ Welcome TV critics, I brought you to my stage/ Because you’re my favorite demo, hot, smart, and middle-aged.”
