BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Queen Latifah still isn’t budging on becoming a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars.”
“I’m really a little busy right now, no disrespect,” Latifah told Access Hollywood on Tuesday as she filmed a spot in Brooklyn for Parks Unleashed, an online game where fans can win prizes from Zyrtec, a company for which she is a paid spokesperson.
Latifah said she heard the rumors she was due to appear on Season 13 while she was on vacation.
“I was chillin’ on a beach in Europe and all of a sudden I get a call that I’m doing ‘Dancing with the’ what? Who? It was just funny,” she continued. “But a lot of people wanted me to do it, but no, I’m not doing ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ I watch the show, I love the show, I got too much other stuff to do.”
While she won’t be competing, Latifah is open to returning to the program.
“I performed on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ so you might see me as a performer, but not as a dancer,” she told Access.
