In a response to the support and hate Queen Pen got after an article was posted in the New York Post alleging that she was a victim of a brutal beatdown by her boyfriend, she released this statement
First off I [would] like to thank all of you who have supported me in this unfortunate situation. And for those who did just the opposite & and decided to post disrespectful comments… Hey, thank you too!! Cause as weird as it may sound you guys gave me a little laugh at a time when life was just so hectic & stressful.
Now down to business… For those who posted a comment bout the pix in NY Post [seen to the left], unfortunately that pic was taken under certain circumstances that was out of my control. I must admit myself that’s not the best pic I’ve ever taken. I can email whoever would like to see a better photo of me and trust I have worst photo’s than the one put in the Post (like da photo of me when dat wacko attacked me). Now for some who had something to say bout the photo of me & Plies. I was just chilling, I’m a human & regular person like any of you women out there. I don’t feel like I’m no better den anybody I live life & deal with life’s everyday issues like anybody.
SO!! I say all that to say so what if my hair wasn’t picture perfect! I don’t have a hair stylist on hand and I was going to support my Dude listening thing at the label. Now I ask u guys this, if someone asked me to take a flick & I said, “Naw, my hair ain’t done.” Wouldn’t I had looked like a crab ass meathead? Come on something like that is minor to me. Plus for those who don’t know, I also have a brain tumor so right now I’m not doing much spectacular with my hair until I make some medical decisions.
Also for the comments about my children, some referred to them as “rugrats.” Please believe ain’t nothin’ rugrat bout my seeds! Yes I have 5 beautiful children! And guess what? I have been raising them on my own& for those of u who come from single parent homes know how hard & challenging that could be. But I did it & [am] still doing it. So being a mother has nothing to do with anything. I take care of my children to the utmost & that should be what matters.
Now to address the comments about “Grammy for what?” for “No Diggity” I was one of the writers not only featured & I had 3 hit singles off of my 1st album, “Party Ain’t a Party “wasn’t my only record. After my first album I got pregnant & decided to leave from the scene to raise my daughter (It couldn’t be no other way. Who else was gonna do it?) I went to Motown Records for half of a minute, they tried to pull da Willy Bo Bo on me, I broke out. Got caught up with some legal crap & cases, got through that and I wrote & self published a book of short stories to put food on da table.
You see, people who really know me can vouch I am from da streets so all I can do to make money (without risking my freedom) is what I been doing over da past years making music & writing books. And by the way my first book sold 80,000 plus & I did
that on my own. No publishing house, with 3 kid’s (at that time I had 3). Which lead me to get a two-book deal with Simon and Shuster. I released one of those books titled “Blossom” & am finishing up the second one now.
Also I’m back recording with Teddy Riley. So, there you have it! And if any of you have anything else you want to know or say to ME, you can hit me on my myspace page & I will get back at you. I’m da only person who reads & answers my messages so give time to respond.
Oh! And for the comment about me living in east Flatbush…. And???
What’s [wrong[ with Flatbush? I’m from Brooklyn & I love it I done the big house in LI before but when I got really sick had to sell& move closer to my family. And trust me since white America been moving into the hood, the hood aint the HOOD no more! And the rent we pay now is mortgage numbers!!! And just for the record…. Yes I’m an advocate for domestic violence, also I am a victim & survivor of domestic violence. And believe me that’s nothing to joke about. Plenty of women lose their lives to it everyday. And a man has no right or reason to brutally abuse a women. Thank you for taking the time out to hear me out. God Bless

Hi Queen.i must say that i am sorry from the bottom of my heart for what you ve been through and for anyone to criticise you must bea sadist themselves.I admire the strength and courage you are taking to raise your kids single handedly and as a campaigner for women who are experiencing abuse you are doing a great job,your a strong women and i admire your effort .Pls keep up the good. work.
Hey Queen, I’m giving you a shout out from Little Rock, Arkansas. I’m a “G” from experience, so I recognize a G when I see and hear from one, and You my dear is a “G”. REAL RECOGNIZE REAL. Nobody is immune to the trial and tribulations of life, been there done that. I understand you getting your point across, but keep the haters behind you and stay focus to what’s ahead. Them POOH BUT HATERS probably can’t crawl through what you’ve walk through. It’s a blessing to be able to birth as many kids as you can, so those kids are your blessings. Only the strong can survise. Rememeber that. I “DIGGIT” YOUR STYLE! Keep pushing it and bring those gifts you got to the front page. I pray for your help and strength. And on the real, bring that “Blossom 2” book on out. Tell the haters that you look better than them on your worst day than they do on their best day. Holla. Love Ms.V.
yo Queen u truely do deserve ur name u tell stories through the mic and thru=ough ur writing. all i gotta say bout dha hatersz is turn ur back on them the look back and wave ur hand high in dha sky nd say with or without u i’mah make. can’t wait till blossom 2 comes out
I really hope things are going well for you and your family Quenn.Still today,I don’t think any female can touch you on the mic. Please come back out! I wish you peace and happiness!
i understand your circumstances,bit i would also like to know about blossom2 when is coming out im wainting that shit was hot.
Forget the haters, they always find a way to hate whether you are doing good or bad. I wouldnot have taken time out my day to explain myself to them. Long as you and your family know what’s up that’s all that matter.
All I what to know is when Blossom 2 is going to be release. You shouldnot have your fans waiting this long for Blossom 2. I no is going to be the bomb. I have been waiting patiently. Release the book and send me a copy if you can.
You go girl. Since i have been on these websites all i see is the upmost hate from haters. To me it’s like more immature kids wild’n out then anything. Like you said you have more important things on your mind and i understand that you need to address some of these haterade fools. Queen keep doing your thang and keep things moving. Like you said if anyone has any questions they should hit you up on your myspace page instead of jumping to conclusions and talking shit they don’t know. LONDON STAND UP!
Queen, it does not matter what a people have to say about you. Only you know what your life struggles are. People are quick to judge but don’t know the power behind survival. The music industry is not the only way to eat and you have shown that. Let god lead you and your blessings will flow. Some people need to close their mouth and stop gossiping so freakin much.
i would like to know what happen to ur husband and are you are mia x still cool
