I don`t want to be the new Oprah: Queen Latifah
London: Rapper-turned-actress Queen Latifah wants TV chiefs not to try and make her the new Oprah Winfrey after landing a daytime talk show in America.
The 41-year-old has landed a deal to host her own syndicated show, but she insists she doesn`t want to be pitched as a replacement for the TV titan, reported Contactmusic.
"A lot of people came at me when Oprah decided she was gonna retire and it seemed like everyone wanted me to come and take her spot. I just feel like no one can take her spot.
Oprah is Oprah," Latifah said.
Talking about her new show she said it will be a hit because she`s teaming up with Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith`s production company.
"I think we can find something fun to do every day, something positive and we can win."
Winfrey ended her long-running talk show last year.
