Rapper/actress/producer Queen Latifah (born as Dana Owens) has taken up temporary residence in the legendary Hollywood actress Jane Fonda’s Atlanta loft. You may remember reading about this 4,700 square foot condo when it first went on the market for $4.5 million (10k/month). Sad to see Jane Fonda leave our city, we were excited to get a glimpse of the downtown condo she purchased after her split from Ted Turner in 2000. The interior is a perfect reflection of Jane Fonda’s iconic style. Her design even goes as far as including her Andy Warhol portraits on the wall, and according to the Fonda’s blog, she was inspired to create its mauve, womb-like entrance when she appeared in “The Vagina Monologues.”
The penthouse has three bedrooms, three baths, tall ceilings and a restaurant grade kitchen among its other amenities. And we can’t help but laugh thinking about Queen Latifah lying on the one-of-a-kind bed which rests under a canopy complete with mirror and wooden tassels. Oh, and we can’t forget the glass fireplace. Queen Latifah is a perfect fit for Jane’s old pad.

Queen Latifah is currently in town to film “Joyous Noise” with co-star Dolly Parton. Word is that Dolly Parton is staying in a Midtown home and has been spotted checking out some of our city’s best shopping. And according to the AJC, Queen Latifah has been around our city as well, grabbing food from local spots and perusing the West Side Provisions District on Howell Mill. We are not sure how long the stars will be staying, but perhaps Queen Latifah will make Atlanta a second home.
