Necole Bitchie caught up with Queen Latifah on the red carpet for the Black Girls Rock tapping for BET. For starters Queen said she had loads of fun with Mary J. Blige & Nicki Minaj when they were guests on her talk show. After answering that brief question about her talk show, Latifah also commented on the drama surrounding Barneys.

Queen Latifah was also asked for her reaction for the racial discrimination against a black customer at Barneys after buying a $349 Ferragamo belt. 

"We been going through this for a long time. We know that this is something that has been continuous in our community when we go into various stores. I hope that's not the case with Barneys and some people got overzealous and did the wrong thing and that it's not the whole coporation. I like Barneys and I'd hate to have to boycott them. That would be terrible. ...

"It's a lesson to all these other stores [to] be cognizant of your shoppers. Just because you have on a baseball cap doesn't mean you don't have money. We don't have to justify where we got the money to buy the expensive belt."
