Celebrity Queen Latifah displays her Body Type Three (BT3) figure/shape while enjoying a day off at the beach. Her underdeveloped vertebrae (posture) and muscles/muscle mass are clearly visible along with excess fat. As well, the obvious skinny fat across her body, particularly cellulite on her buttocks and upper legs/thighs, no less, is likely due to underdeveloped thoracic, lumbar, and sacrum vertebrae.
Science recognizes that one pound of muscle mass burns six calories per day, but one pound of fat/skinny fat mass only burns two to three calories per day, which directly affects metabolism. Having a slower metabolism due to all the skinny fat and excess fat is a known disadvantage of a BT3. Skinny fat increases the tendency of accumulating excess fat and being overweight and obese.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle, metabolism, and BMI matter. But so do genes/genetics/DNA. It will be interesting to see how well Queen Latifah manages and maintains her weight and body shape figure as she ages.
Queen Latifah Figure/Shape – BT3
Grammy Award-winner rapper and Academy Award-nominated actress Queen Latifah shows off her Body Type Three shape/figure at the ocean and pool with friends and family including partner Eboni Nichols. Her entertainment career began as a rapper in 1989 when she signed with Tommy Boy Records. She released her debut album All Hail the Queen (1989, Grammy-nominated for Best Rap Solo Performance) which featured the song “Ladies First.”
In total she has been nominated for 7 Grammy Awards, winning her only Grammy for the song U.N.I.T.Y. (1995, Best Rap Solo Performance). Over the years, her demanding concert touring and movie career, which includes one Acadamy Award nomination for the film Chicago (2002, Best Supporting Actress), likely helped increase her metabolic rate thus encouraging the burning of more calories to assist with keeping any further excess fat at bay. Some of her best know movies are Jungle Fever (1991), Set It Off (1996), Chicago (2002), Bringing Down the House (2003), Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004), Taxi (2004), Beauty Shop (2005), Last Holiday (2006), Stranger Than Fiction (2006), Hairspray (2007), The Secret Life of Bees (2008), Mad Money (2008), What Happens in Vegas (2008), Just Wright (2010), 22 Jump Street (2014), Bessie (2015), Girls Trip (2017), Flint (2017), and the Ice Age animation franchise.
Queen Latifah Body Type Three Shape – Body Positive/Body Positivity
Properly building muscles/mass is the key to getting rid of skinny fat (cellulite, thin fat, loose skin, saggy skin, crepey skin, normal weight obesity), but by no means an easy thing to do. The body-positive movement/body positivity is not an acceptable excuse to normalize the disease of obesity and disregard health. At the same time, trolling, shaming, hating, and bullying are not appropriate and will not be tolerated.
The key to real health is acceptance of your specific scientific body type (genetics) and then figuring out the best diet, exercise, and lifestyle to successfully manage it for the short and long term to achieve sustainable health. You can catch her on social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. See more rapper, singer, actress, and Hollywood star Queen Latifah celebrity Body Type Three (BT3) photos on Google.
