Modeled after Maria Shriver's Just Who Will You Be, Queen Latifah's goal with Put On Your Crown is to help young women build a strong sense of self-esteem. A US Dept. of Justice survey found that females ages 16-24 are more vulnerable to partner violence than any other group, almost triple the national average. Cases like Chris Brown's assault on pop star Rihanna showed an ugly side of adolescent life. However, Queen Latifah has always been a shining example of a woman happy with herself and unwilling to compromise to fit into the "hollywood ideal" of what a confident beautiful woman should look like. The result: She's one of the biggest A-list celebrities in Hollywood.
Celebrated actress and singer Queen Latifah implores young women to take charge of their lives and make sure they get the respect that they deserve in PUT THE CROWN ON. Using Maria Shriver's JUST WHO WILL YOU BE as a model for her book, Queen Latifah reflects on her own life's path, and asks young women to love themselves, and be proud of who they are--and who they might become.
