Queen Latifah was honored at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens on July 11 alongside Lil’ Kim, Salt-N-Pepa and Missy Elliott. While the night was filled with tributes for the legendary women of Hip Hop, veteran actress Betty White took a different approach to honor the Queen.
“Who you calling a b*tch?,” recited the former Golden Girl during her dramatic reading of Queen Latifah’s 1993 Grammy Award-winning song “U.N.I.T.Y.”
“I walked past these dudes, when they passed me. One of ’em felt my booty, he was nasty,” White continued. “Since he was with his boys he tried to break fly. Huh, I punched him dead in his eye.”
The 94-year-old drew hysterical laughs and applause from the audience, and ended her tribute saying, “They don’t write ’em like that anymore.”
