In Sunday’s New York Times, Queen Latifah was again queried about her sexual preference during an interview to promote her new film “The Secret Life of Bees.” “I don’t have a problem discussing the topic of somebody being gay, but I do have a problem discussing my personal life,” said the 38-year-old entertainer. “You don’t get that part of me. Sorry,” she added. “We’re not discussing it in our meetings, we’re not discussing it at Cover Girl…nobody gets that.” “I don’t feel like I need to share my personal life, and I don’t care if people think I’m gay or not,” she said. “Assume whatever you want. You do it anyway.”

Variety is reporting that Forest Whitaker is on board to direct and star in a biopic of jazz pioneer Louis Armstrong that is named after his signature tune, “What a Wonderful World.” The first big screen project to be authorized by the Armstrong estate, “World” will follow the musician’s impoverished early years in New Orleans and primarily chronicle his career as a trumpet virtuoso and improvisational singer. “Armstrong left a monumental mark on our lives and our culture,” said Whitaker, who portrayed jazz great Charlie Parker in “Bird.” “He lived an amazing life and, through his art, shifted the way music was played and would be heard after him, not just here in the U.S. but all over the world.” Oscar Cohen, executive of the Armstrong estate and the Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation, began working for the musician in the late ’40s as his road manager. He’ll serve as an executive producer on the project and has granted the filmmakers exclusive access to his personal accounts as well as to letters and other material in the Armstrong archives. “What a Wonderful World” will begin shooting in the summer in Louisiana. Whitaker’s directing credits include “Waiting to Exhale,” “Hope Floats” and “First Daughter.” He won an Oscar in 2006 for his role as Idi Amin in “The Last King of Scotland.”




Chris “Ludacris” Bridges won’t have to worry about standing in line at his local polling station next month on Election Day. “I already voted,” the Atlanta-born rapper-actor told the New York Daily News. The supporter of Democratic nominee Barack Obama added: “I think it’s very clear who I voted for.” In fact, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that a substantial number of blacks in Georgia have taken advantage of the early voting option as a way to avoid any unforeseen polling problems on Nov. 4. Of the 263,408 ballots already cast in Georgia since early polling opened Sept. 22, 38% were by voters who identify themselves as African Americans, even though blacks account for just 29% of Georgia’s 5.6 million voters. Registration is up from about 4.3 million in November 2004 and about 4 million in November 2000.
John McCain holds a substantial lead over Barack Obama in most Georgia polls, including leads of seven and eight percentage points in Research 2000 and SurveyUSA polls taken last week.
