Rapper Queen Latifah blew all of the money she earned from her first album buying a Jeep - and splashing out on a gold tooth. The musician was only in her teens when she first got a taste of success and immediately went on a shopping spree. She explains, "My first single came out when I was 17. You start getting money (and you go crazy). "The first time I came off a tour I bought a Jeep and I bought a gold tooth. "I didn't have a lot of money growing up. I always wanted one, but I couldn't afford it. "So I bought a gold tooth and I lost that damn tooth in like three days. "It didn't fit so good and it would pop off and I'd always be fiddling with the stupid tooth. "And then I sold the jeep. But I had so much fun in it."
