[ dial tone ] >> you hung up on oprah. >> you are such a pack of morons. >> and all that matters. >> if you were to be made pope what name would you choose? >> stephen. >> on "cbs this morning." >> since the syrian situation is a mess -- >> i clearly am a skeptic that is the right way to go. >> biological will be next mark my words. >> came back to a dark dark place. >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this
7:03 am
morning." good morning, norah. >> a shock this morning. >> in cleveland. the monster of cleveland is dead. ariel castro held three women captive for about a decade. he apparently hanged himself last night in his prison cell. >> castro was not on suicide watch. our columbus affiliate is outside the prison orient ohio. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. those of you in the west. because this was such a high-profile case ariel castro was kept away from other prisoners for his own safety. prison officials say guards would check on him every 30 minutes. at one point between those checks, castro took his own life. ariel castro was found hanging in his ohio state prison cell shortly after 9:00 p.m. tuesday night. upon discovering his lifeless body, the medical staff tried to resuscitate him. castro was taken to an ohio state university medical center where he was pronounced dead at 10:52 p.m. >> you'll be confined for the remainder of your days. >> r just last month a
7:04 am
judge sentenced the 52-year-old to life in prison plus 1,000 years, for abducting and sexually assaulting three women. in court, castro apologized but claimed he was the victim. >> you're trying to make me look like a monster. i'm not a monster. i am a normal person. i am just sick. i have an addition. just like an alcoholic has an addition. >> reporter: between 2002 and 2004, castro lured each of the women into his car separately. they they were 14 16 and 20 years old. for nearly a decade he held them captive at his rundown home in cleveland. during that time, he fathered a daughter with berry and forced night into multiple miscarriages by beating her. the women finally broke free in may. and at castro's sentencing, night confronted her abductor. >> you took 11 years of my life away. and i now have got it back. i spent 11 years in hell. now your hell is just beginning. >> reporter: an autopsy will be
7:05 am
performed on castro's body. the ohio state highway patrol will conduct the investigation and try and figure out how castro was able to commit suicide under watchful eye of guards. norah, charlie. president obama is gaining crucial support for military action against syria. house speaker john boehner is backing a u.s. strike. and the senate foreign relations committee could vote as early as today on a resolution authorizing the use of force. but the president still faces a skeptical nation. a new survey finds just 29% of americans favor air strikes. nearly half 48%, oppose them. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. >> reporter: those numbers are part of the reason that the senate foreign relations committee has rewritten the resolution that the president first proposed over the weekend. they are making it much more limited. banning the use of ground strikes in syria. limiting the duration of any strikes. they did that in part to win over members who feel that the
7:06 am
original resolution was simply too broad. essentially gave the president a blank check to wage war. the new proposal from senate law marks sets a 60 day limit for military action with the option for the president to extend it another 30 days. the resolution also prohibits the use of united states armed forces on the ground in syria. it was crafted by the leaders of the foreign relations committee. democrat bob men nen does and republican bob corker. >> you think getting the language right is the key to passing this legislation? >> i think getting the language right is very important. members want to know that our boots on the ground are not going to be there and we're not going to be mired down into a long civil war. >> this is not the time to be spectators to slaughter. >> reporter: secretary of is state john kerry urged his senate colleagues to vote yes tuesday. he wouldn't say whether the president plans to strike syria even if the congress votes no. >> he intends to win the passage of the resolution.
7:07 am
on the case that he does not, is the plan that he -- >> we're not contemplating that. because it's too dire. >> reporter: kentucky republican rand paul argued a strike might provoke assad and other u.s. enemies in the region like iran. kerry disagrees. >> if the united states of america doesn't do this senator, is it more or less likely that assad does it again? you want to answer that question? >> i don't think it's known. >> is it more or less likely that he does it again? >> i think it's unknown. >> it's unknown -- senator, it's not unknown. if the united states of america doesn't hold him accountable on this, with our allies and friends, it's a guarantee assad will do it again. a guarantee. and i urge you to go to the classified briefing and learn that. >> reporter: military briefers have practically set up shop on capitol hill. walking any member who wants it through a classified look at the intelligence in an attempt to garner more votes. >> we have the ability to get a couple more briefings later this week. i look forward to those.
7:08 am
and then i will decide. >> reporter: house members will get their chance to grill secretary kerry in a hearing that gets under way in a couple hours. but it's still too soobn to say which way the house is going to go in the end. it's still technically in recess. most members are back in their home districts where they're getting an earful from constituents. in some cases, we're hearing that members are getting phone calls and e-mails that are running 100-1 against striking syria. >> nancy, thank you. inside syria, there's growing concern this morning about those air strikes. elizabeth palmer is the only american network correspondent in damascus. she's getting a firsthand look at the human toll from the chaos. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. syria's now been at war for two years. and people in damascus have been putting up with an escalation in fighting. now we can hear the sound of the
7:09 am
fighting in the suburbs all day. great big explosions and flashes of light. life kind of takes over. but it's not normal by any means. there are power cuts. morpters come out of the sky. and hole neighborhoods have been emptied by the fighting. last month, we went to visit this area, an inner suburb. about 80% of the people have gone from there. we visited a couple of days ago. it's heavily damaged. the only people who are staying behind are armed civilians guarding the neighborhood. so the 300,000 people who left that area have come many of them, into the center of damascus, where they're living in very squalid and overcrowded condition, often in converted schools and factories. but they're managing to stay safe. they think the threat of american air strikes could alter the equation completely. it's the same poor people in the countryside. we visited these people in sweda a few months ago. they had collected in a safe
7:10 am
area which was, in fact a converted children's camp. but, still, a very tenuous grip on life. none of them have been working. they don't necessarily have steady supplies of food and water. so consider their position. at the moment, they're managing to stay safe. whether or not they support president assad, what they're afraid of is american air strikes will alter the equation so the stability they enjoin now will be upset and they will be hurt or killed in the chaos. norah and charlie. >> elizabeth palmer thanks. minutes ago, president obama defended his plan to strike syria. speaking in sweden the president said he's confident congress will authorize an attack. he believes the world cannot be silent in the wake of last month's chemical attack. and the president says he will continue to engage with russia president putin, even though they've, quote, hit a wall in their relationship.
7:11 am
major garrett is traveling with the president in stockholm. >> reporter: president just wrapped up a press conference with the swedish prime minister here in stockholm. he went out of his way to sort of take himself out of the entire question about military action led by the united states against the syrian regime for its alleged use of chemical weapons in an attack on august 21st that left up to 1500 civilians ted. the president said this red line that has been so much a part of the conversation about syrian chemical weapons isn't his at all. >> first of all, i didn't set a red line. the world set a red line. the world set a red line when governments representing 98% of the world's population said the use of chemical weapons are abhorrent and passed a treaty forbidding their use, even when countries are engaged in war. congress set a red line when it ratified that treaty. >> reporter: mr. obama took his
7:12 am
rhetoric a step further. saying his credibility is not on the line in syria. but the international community's credibility is on the line and that of the american congress. he also said it's way past time to try to negotiate a way out of this or shame the syrians into changing their behavior. military action is necessary the president said to punish their behavior and he intends at the proper time to do so. charlie and norah. >> thank you very much. cbs news political director john dixon joins us now. let's look at the politics of this. what's the significance cantor and boehner and what's happening within the republican members of the house. >> it's significant for the president because what they're trying to do and we saw secretary of state john kerry do this yesterday, is pull this away from politics. say this is about america's role in the world. they keep using the word "norm." the idea is this line has been crossed and the world -- we must react. this is an offense that is larger than politics. when john boehner and cantor, the two leaders in the house, or the republicans, support the
7:13 am
measure, it pulls it away from politics. in the nitty-gritty vote by vote, getting republicans in the house of representatives to back this president they don't like john boehner's help is only kind of marginal. because he said to those members, you're on your own for this. you've got to do this because, as he said this is the united states -- >> are we going to see the rise of a libertarian movement within the republican party here because people like rand paul and cruz and others? >> we've seen it already. there used to be something called a foreign policy consensus. both parties agreed on a way forward when these national party moments came up. there is no such consensus. in part because the libertarians on the republican side are joining with gloves on the democratic side. it's the rise of those libertarians, in particular, the kind of charismatic ones like rand paul who give voice to this argument. that argument has a lot of purchase out in the country
7:14 am
where people are worried about a backlash. worried if we start sending missiles, chaos will be unleashed. >> there are a handful of polls out that show the american people overwhelmingly oppose u.s. air strikes. even arming the rebels. americans don't want anything to do with syria. do you think the president will end up giving an oval office address? we see his aides saying he's going to do the full-court press to sell this. >> i think he has to. a lot of these members are saying you've got to do it or you don't have my vote. he may not get very far in convincing the public. if you look inside the pew poll, 74% say they're worried about a backlash. you can tailor this operation any way you want. >> meaning a risk to national security? >> yes, there will be a kind of pandora's box that will open. you can change this resolution any way you want it doesn't get at that question. >> thank you john. the white house is launching
7:15 am
a major push with some big star power to get the word out about the health care law. next month, americans without health care coverage will be able to buy it through insurance exchanges. jan crawford is in washington. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. these exchanges are really the main way that nearly 50 million americans who now are uninsured are going to get coverage. if they don't sign up this whole new health care system con doomed. that is why the obama administration is turning to a traditional ally hollywood, for some help. >> exclusive. >> reporter: during the health care debate, a cast of celebrities from the website funny or die turned out edgy videos supporting the president's initiative. one took on big insurers. >> why is obama trying to reform health care when insurance companies are doing just fine making billions of dollars of profit? >> reporter: other videos lampooned opponents of the president's health care plan. >> i can't afford insurance. but that doesn't mean i want the government to make it
7:16 am
affordable. >> reporter: now the obama administration is asking funny or die started by comedian will ferrell, to create videos to help build support for a law many polls show is deeply unpopular. more than half of uninsured americans are young people under age 35. a prime demographic for funny or die and the insurance exchanges. >> they need these people. they need their premiums to cover those who are sicker and have higher costs. >> reporter: president obama has enlisted other celebrities. amy poehler, jennifer hudson and oprah winfrey have been briefed at the white house. singer katy perry retweeted a barack obama tweet to her 42 million followers. even the super bowl champs the baltimore ravens will lend their support. >> this is highly unusual for an act of the federal government. it's not at all unusual for a political campaign. president obama and the white house know that they have a major selling job ahead of them.
7:17 am
>> reporter: republicans who are trying to stall the law's rollout are fighting back. karl rove's superpac released its own video aimed at young people. >> at obama care we believe in saying the word affordable health care so that young people will love us and sign up. >> reporter: celebrities not the only ones getting involved. president obama, the first lady the vice president, they're all going to hit the road in the coming weeks. today, master campaigner president clinton, he's kicking it all off just about an hour from now with a speech in little rock arkansas. >> the question of attacking syra is commanding the nation's attention but it did have the senate's attention on tuesday's hearing. except for one senator. a "washington post" photographer caught senator mccain playing poker on his smart phone as secretary of state john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and joint chiefs chairman martin
7:18 am
dempsey testified. after he was caught mccain tweeted, scandal, caught playing iphone game at three-hour-plus senate hearing. worst of all, i lost. >> that's the way to handle an embarrassment, isn't it? >> it is it is. it was a long hearing. he made a joke about it. but he got caught. there's lots of photographers in those senate hearings. >> it is time to show you some of this morning's headlines. al qaeda's battle to stop american drone attacks. cells of al qaeda engineers are looking for ways to shoot down jam or remotely hijack the unmanned planes. >> the los angeles times says 1 in 4 deaths from heart disease and stroke from this country can be prevented. that's 200,000 lives at stake. the cdc says keys include quitting smoking, controlling blood pressure and cholesterol. "the new york times" says kodak is done with bankruptcy this morning. gone are the cameras and film that made kodak famous. the new kodak is focused on products like commercial
7:19 am
printers and touch screens for smart phones. the boston herald says a judge is ordering lance armstrong to answer questions about using performance enhancing drugs. an insurance company is seeking the information as part of a $3 million lawsuit. it claims armstrong committed fraud in his doping cover-up. the questioning will push armstrong closer to his first sworp testimony about drug use. >> the san jose mercury news says apple is inviting the media to an event next tuesday to headquarters in california. one is believed to come with the lower price tag. good morning. starting out with some patchy, dense fog around the bay area this morning, but looking like lots of sunshine coming our way. overlooking russian hill in san francisco, you can see fog at the golden gate bridge. otherwise, we are going to see plenty of sunshine and these temperatures going to remain seasonal for now, probably the next couple of days. then some changes coming our way. i think we're going to heat things up looking towards the weekend. 80s inland, 60s at the coastline, 70s inside the bay,

7:31 am
another week. >> high five? >> no. i've gotten my hands full. the man behind under armour is in the green room. he joins roger goodell to announce a new partnership to combat brain injury. it's an interview you'll see only on "cbs this morning." plus the fake news is back. we'll bring you jon stewart's highlights and his return to "the daily show." that's ahead. the den voe broncos host the defending super bowl champions the baltimore ravens. commissioner roger goodell is here to talk about the new season. it's his first interview since the landmark concussion settlement last week. william welcome. >> thank you charlie. >> let's talk about the settlement. some are saying the nfl got off easy. tell us what you can that brought you to make this settlement and what other ramifications. >> well, the most important thing, charlie, to us was to be able to resolve the differences and get relief to the players as soon as possible and their
7:32 am
families. what we were able to do was compromise on our positions. there was no admission of guilty. there was no recognition that anything was caused by football but the reality is we wanted to help our players. if we litigated this it would have been years of litigation and the help wouldn't have have been given to the players at an early date. >> is it over because four of them have filed new lawsuit. >> one thing i've learned, charlie, in this business is litigations are never over. there are lawyers and they're going don't to bring the lit galgs. we believe the litigation under the guidance of judge brodie and judge fillphilips that we've reached agreement. judge brodie has yet to rule on it and give he approval on it but she will shortly give her decision and we'll rule from that. >> let's talk about the change back in 2010.
7:33 am
you made a ruling on cracking down on the helmet-to-helmet hit. i'm wondering what do you say to families and parents watching worldwide how how safe is this game to play. many are very neverous. >> i think that's been our history, gayle. when we see dangerous techniques, we take it out of the game. so it wasn't just 2010 we made rule changes. we made them throughout our existence. and it's made the game safer because as we see techniques we change the rules to take those out of a game. our focus in recent years has really been how do we protect the defenseless player as we call it and to make sure that we put that individual in the best possible position to be protected from an injury. and i think from a parent's standpoint and i've been to several youth football games practices including three of my nephews in the past three weeks and parents know that we're doing the right thing to protect their children by making sure that the rules are properly
7:34 am
enforced, making sure we get the best possible equipment and investing our research. it's making game safer. and i believe that the game is safer and better than ever. >> can i turn to the issue of drug testing? the perception is nfl lags behind other leagues in terms of drug testing. what about more testing for performance-enhancing drugs, human enhanced growth hormones? >> we began testing back in the early '90s and we've been a leader in the area. where i am unfortunately disappointed is we're not testing for hgh right now. we agree in that in our collective bargaining agreement two years ago and we've not been able to do that. we believe we have a program that's ready to be implemented and it's up to the union right now to accept that program. >> do you expect any break through on that soon? >> i sure hope so norah. i've been optimistic before
7:35 am
because we've done everything we can to say yes and get the program in place including compromising on a population study to making sure that it goes to third party arbitration, these issues. unfortunately they haven't said yes yet. >> as you know the obama administration is strongly trying to make -- have people come forward to talk about health care and the baltimore rairch ravens are doing this as well. ho dow you feel about it? >> these are discussions -- we as a league decided not do that but allow our clubs to enter into agreements where they feel it can be beneficial. so the rairchs made that decision. we support them. >> let me come to this question. as the football changes. as you have to have these safety considerations, the players are stronger. is it going to change the game? >> i don't believe so, charlie. i think our game always remains a physical game. it's a tough game. i was just talking to the great john madden last week who's been
7:36 am
involved in monitoring and helping us figure out ideas of how we can continue to make the game safer and he said the players and the coaches are adjusting and the game is getting back to fundamentals, and the game has never been safer, and that's a good thing for the players who play the game, but it's also great for fans because what they're seeing is great competition and their players are healthier and on the field longering and that's what fans want is great football competition, and the competition has been outstanding. >> we've also got some big new this morning. in a moment we're going to be joined by the ceo of under armour, kevin flank. he's here to promote player safety. first we want to show how he turned a t-shirt into a billion-dollar brand. >> when the ball is in the air -- >> what's become a $2 billion company in one of the hottest sports brands in the world started in 1995 with kevin plank's search for a better t-shirt. plank then a university of
7:37 am
maryland football player was tired of sweating through his cotton t-shirts at practice. armed with a tailor and women's fabric in lon jer yeah, he created the first t-shirt. hi corn vinced players to try it as hi ran it out of his grandmother's basement. now under armour is not just under football pad. their footwear apparel, and accessories can be found on athletes all over the world. >> kevin plank joins us at the table to announce a new initiative between under armour and nfl football. we're going to talk about that but first what do you know about women's lingerie how you knew that would work? >> it's become standard for grown men. there's no shame here.
7:38 am
>> it worked very well. i'm very familiar with your stuff. tell us about the partnership with nfl. what are you planning? >> we announced this a few years ago. when the commissioner called us we were very excited to get in involved. i started when i was 11 years old playing tackle football, tag football before this all the way through high school prep school and finally to college. so i giev at good 15 years of playing in this game and a lot of the principles that i have were founded and put into the kpaechlt we run or company like a team. sales and moneying like defense. i.t. and special teams waend coach and we literally keep whiteboards in the office. basically i started my company out of school and it was the lessons on the team field and the environmental that caught me more than anything else. first of all the roots of the game, the benefit and talking about what game provides is one of the most important things i wanted to draw there. >> what are you doing? and what are you doing about brain injury and brain studies.
7:39 am
>> sure. what we wanted to do is put the smartest minds around the world at the table. so bringing nfl, ge, and ourselves. so the role that we're playing with the challenge that kicks off today helps challenge dot-com. people can find out lots of information about it. but the idea is basically three parts. first and foremost we want to be able to challenge people with money raised up to $10 million in total, to challenge everyone in the environment, beyond just ge and under armour but to challenge people to come back and find solutions. number one, to help identify measuring the problem. number two is there any idea for safety. and number three it's things like the commissioner mentioned earlier about heads-up football. how can we do this through education and training and learning from a really very young age. so there's three parts to it and i think we're really excited about what that's going to mean. >> charlie, we're excited about -- this is our second initiative. we started with g e.on diagnostic equipment and trying to identify.
7:40 am
we had an overwhelming reaction on a worldwide basis. over 125 countries participated in it and we think we're going to make a real difference quickly on creating better diagnostic equipment. but the second piece here is really the protective equipment which we now with ge and the nfl joining with under armour here really find are there better protective materials that can be used in our equipment, whether it's helmets an other areas of the equipment and we believe there are. we believe that putting best minds to work is going to create that opportunity. >> a lot of people are excited about what you're doing today. >> yeah. kevin. are you making a call in tomorrow's game for the ravens? >> yeah. >> absolutely. >> we know you can't -- >> i've gotten a prediction on the terps as well. >> norah, they're heading over to tiffany's after the show. would you like any requests? >> yeah. we're happy to join you.

8:04 am
that wall tomorrow when putin hosts the g-20 global economic summit. the biggest barrier dividing the two nations is syria. putin backs the syrian regime and he told the "associated press" he seriously doubts syrian soldiers were ordered to use chemical weapons against civilians. mr. obama says the evidence is absolutely convincing. he will drive that message at g-20 to enlift more support, at least rhetorically for future air strikes against the syrian regime. the two leaders are expected to have a brief side conversation but no formal talks are planned. major garrett in stockholm the senate foreign relations committee is expected to vote on a draft authorization for the use of force in syria. this morning, arizona republican, john mccain, says he does not support the latest bipartisan plan. on tuesday, president obama won the backing of other key figures in congress for a proposed strike against the assad regime. >> this is something that the

8:06 am
clearly articulate how he is going to implement this. >> what does he have to say to convince you it is the right thing to do? >> i want to see actionable intelligence and see what they have, what they bring forward in the classified briefing. i want him to define this mission and then my question to him is how is he going to backfill all of the cuts that have been made to our military forces over the past three or four years. we are looking at $1 trillion worth of cuts coming to the military. they basically had a round of sequestration before they took the 5% cut in sequestration. so we have sent them into afghanistan for a surge with less money, then libya, then egypt, now syria. it is all being done with less resources. >> congresswoman it is true that these sequestration cuts have hurt the military deeply. the republicans in congress and the president agreed to those
8:07 am
jointly. so they are both responsible for that. you represent ft. campbell and that gives you a unique perspective on this. >> what i am hearing is that a lot of the families are tired. they have faced a lot of deployment. >> from those that are the military retirees they are saying, we need the commander in chief to articulate the way forward on this. >> congressman, you heard, no boots on the ground in syria. >> they are saying no boots on the ground. >> but what we have seen happen is a fumbling, if you will. some of the processes in afghanistan question surrounding libya, question surrounding egypt and people are saying we should be incredibly cautious about what we are going to do and to look at syria let's please be certain the president is able to articulate what and how and when. >> senator kerry says the world

8:09 am
and again and again, what is the response? >> you are correct, the considerations of iran and russia and the entire region. the enstabilityinstability offer the entire region. this is why there was an urging as far as two years back. to do something about the situation in syria that has gotten worse. you can go back and look at what has transpired in iraq when they were saying these weapons are being moved to syria. the wmd is being moved to syria. there are individuals who are saying, let's look and see if we can figure out where this gas is from and where it ties back to. so there are loads of questions to be answered. house members are going to do ou due diligence and do it carefully. >> good to see you. >> pope francis is again using social media to speak out about syria. on twitter yesterday, this quote, with utmost firmness i condemn the use of chemical weapons. the pope is calling for an end

>> that's chicago's wgn's morning team. they were pretty embarrassed about hanging up on oprah winfrey during a live phone the interview due to a glitch. she was okay. >> that's not what i heard.& she was outraged. it's no big deal. we know that kind of stuff happens. queen latifa is with us today, the musician, producer, author, and nominated actress -- listen to that -- is launch add new show. it's called "teach." it follows four public school teachers through the ups and downs of an academic career. queen latifah is at the table. everybody always says queen latifah but you say queen latifah. >> i do say queen latifah. >> i heard at the age of 8 you told the name latifah because it
8:42 am
means gentle and pleasant. >> yeah, delicate and sensitive. >> what did you know about yourself? >> i was big for my age. >> were you. you mean tall or over-- >> not big or overweight. i was very statue efing. i was big, you know like the tallest girl in my class pictures, you know things like that as a kid. but i was really sensitive. this pices kid who's big but sweet on the inside. so when i saw the meaning of latifah i i saw it in a book my cousin sheronda had and i thought that's me and i started calling myself latifah. >> and it sticks. >> yeah. >> let's talk about teach. i watched the show yesterday. the documentary is going to be on cbs on friday. i know your mom has been a teacher for many years. >> yes. >> i would imagine that's what drew do you this particular project. >> absolutely. i definitely have a soft spot
8:43 am
for teachers and the challenges that they face the education and the excitement that they share with the education of our children. and so when davis guggenheim called me the director i knew what he had done with some of his past films. he's a great documentary director. i was like let me try to figure -- he's like please i would need you to do it. there was no time to do it but i thought i'm going to try to squeeze this in because it is really important and we made it happen. >> it's amazing the way people ream out to you, queen latifah. you started as a rapper at the age of 18 19. now when they talk about you it's entertainment, it's singer author motivational speaker. >> talk show host. >> talk show host. >> overall cool chick. don't forget that. >> overall cool chick. >> you've got a lot of your plate. >> i do. but, you know i always was this type of person. as a kid i was always into a lot
8:44 am
of different things at once. so i was rapping but i was on the basketball team. i was on student government and involved in organizations so i'm used to being kind of the -- i have all these different sides of my personality and i like to use them. so they all work. >> which gives you the greatest satisfaction? >> i think -- you know, whenever i can create an idea and see it come to fruition. so whether it's through my music or whether it was through our management company, just having an artist creating ideas for them watching them become platinum artists, that was exciting for us. it's kind of like watching your babies, you know score the first basket type thing, but all those things when you succeed, they're great and when they're tough, you take your lumps, brush it off and try again. >> you've got a new talk show. >> yes i do. >> what's the name of it? >> it is called -- >> look in the camera. >> thank you.
8:45 am
of course. >> "the queen la tee ta show." >> it's called "the queen latifah show," yes. i right right here on cbs. >> you've talked about it. have you had any hesitation? >> i was in london having a guinness, someone grabbed me, it was will and jada and they kidnapped me made me do this talk show. did do a talk show before and i learned a lot. i had a good time doing it but there was a lot more i wanted to do at the time. i wanted to act more so i hadn't done "chicago," "bringing down the house," "beauty shop,". >> and being nominated. >> exactly. and i had the option to leave the talk show. and i thought, you know what? i really want to do it. but now i'm ready. i feel like life -- i've gotten
8:46 am
to do a lot of thingses in this journey that life has taken me brought me back where i need to be. >> i'm curious about what ready means. in the teaching documentary queen latifah says you learn more from failure than success but that doesn't mean hitting the wall makes it hurt any less. what did you take away from that? >> i think the main thing i took away from the first one is make sure i'm doing something i love every day. it's really important to make sure that it's me that it feels like something i'm enjoying and love because it doesn't matter how much sleep i lose. when i'm doing something i love, i can lose sleep. i can go and go and go and go. my work ethic is pretty intense. but when it comes to dog something that i don't love every day, i'm not very good at it. that's called work and i don't like work very much. >> we can relate when you do something you love. it absolutely doesn't feel like love. >> this is going to be a lot
8:47 am
more fun than you know i was able to accomplish on the last talk show. that was to be more fun but it got serious and intense. i took a lot of those stories home with me so it was really hard to detach myself from travolta. not to go oi bra style, but we had queen latifah aka dana owens is a lot of fun. >> that's right. >> who's listing. and her special "teach," by the way airs this friday at 8:00 right here on cbs. >> please tune in. it's going to be a great. >> we will. we will. a building in london is too hot to handle. see hue this
