Queen Latifah on Chris Brown: 'He needs to be forgiven. Enough already'

chris-brown-queen-latifah.jpg Queen Latifah is still wiped out from her hosting duties Sunday night for the 10th Annual BET Awards. But she roused to chat with The Dish Rag exclusively about Chris Brown's stunning comeback on the show.

"I thought Chris Brown's performance was amazing, just amazing," she raves. "Not only was it a knockout performance, but his heartfelt emotion ... you can't plan that, you can't write that, it's just truth."

She also thinks that it's time to forgive Brown and move on. "The guy is a young guy and he made a big mistake and he needs to bounce back from that. And he needs an opportunity for a second chance," she says. "We can't condemn that kid. He's a kid and he needs to correct the mistake for the future, not live in the past."
