fitting tributes

Betty White Did a Dramatic Reading of Queen Latifah’s ‘U.N.I.T.Y.’

Queen Latifah was one of the monarchs revered at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens on Monday, and she got a prize way better than some stinkin’ trophy: a tribute from the one and only Betty White. White shied away from a traditional tribute of kind, flowery words, instead honoring Latifah by spitting straight fire in a calm, measured tone. The comedy legend gifted Latifah with a dramatic reading of Latifah’s female-empowerment single “U.N.I.T.Y.” Because, besides Queen Latifah, there are few women who can utter the lines “Who you callin’ a bitch? I walked past these dudes. When they passed me one of ’em felt my booty, he was nasty” like a Golden Girl. Watch White unfurl some rhymes very evenly above.
