Queen Latifah Covers MORE Magazine

Queen Latifah covers the October issue of MORE magazine.

The new daytime talk show host chatted with the magazine about reconciling with her father, caring for her ailing mother and confronting things that terrify her.

Check out some snippets below.

On her talk show this time around:
“This is a learning experience. I’m not going to pretend to be Oprah Winfrey. That woman built a 25-year show. I’ve got to get through week one, then month one. I expect to make mistakes and learn and grow.”
On her brother and going to therapy:
“Jada was the first person who got me to go to therapy. I was really having problems dealing with the loss. I didn’t feel. It was like I had a circuit breaker. When I felt any emotion too much, whether it was joy, fear, love, it would turn right off. So that was scar- ing me. I thought I was about to live my life not living my life. I was doing things to numb whatever was left or looking for little rushes of some sort. Going through the motions, doing my job, showing up for work but not feeling.”
