During an appearance on Anderson Live with the cast of Steel Magnolias, the Queen was asked by hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen whether she was Team Nicki or Team Mariah.
“I would definitely not take sides in ignorance like that,” she said.
However, she couldn’t help but point out that when it comes to Mariah, her career alone commands esteem. “Come on, you’re talking about a hundred million right there,” said Queen Latifah, referring to Mariah’s record sales. “You got to respect your elders to a point, you know what I’m saying? That’s a grand diva, but I love Nicki too.”
