Early this year, Jennifer Hudson revealed that she has an alter ego named “Jones.”  Her alter ego is responsible in turning her up and eventually leading her to her forthcoming third studio album. The singer is collaborating with Timbaland for her new track entitled “Walk It Out.”  In this new music, Hudson chats about an interested guy who attempts in laying her down. On the latest track, Hudson sings, “Hey baby, hey hey hey, can we reschedule, we can do this another day day day, F-ck it! Let’s do this today!”

She further sings:

 

“If I didn’t know no better I would think you were flirting

Whispering them sweet nothings in my ear

Giving me excuses just to get up in here

Now, Boy you talking good sh-t

And I swear you could get it

I’m a good girl, got a thing about my image

Would give it to you but I’m sorry

I’m just not anybody”

Jennifer Hudson is very grateful to Weight Watchers for her successful weight loss.  However, now they are already parting ways.  After being the face of Weight Watchers for 4 years, now is the time to say goodbye.  Hudson will not be representing Weight Watchers anymore and in connection to this both parties have released the following statements:

Jennifer says:

“My experience with Weight Watchers has truly been life changing.  I am grateful for what I have learned throughout the process and will always take it with me. I have chosen to step away from my role as ambassador and I am excited for the year to come, with many new projects and lots of new music.”

Here is the statement from Weight Watchers:

“After four years of a successful and rewarding partnership, Weight Watchers and Jennifer Hudson are ending our official partnership, though we’re confident Jennifer will remain a Lifetime Member.  Jennifer’s healthy lifestyle and successful weight loss has inspired so many—from her friends and family to our members and staff, as well as people around the world—and we know that inspiration lives on. We will continue to support Jennifer in maintaining her healthy lifestyle and wish her the very best in her personal and professional life.”

Hudson also tweeted:

“Sometimes you have to step back and let your work speak for you, and when that doesn’t work you walk away knowing you did your best…It’s been fun and a pleasure good luck to you all. @WeightWatchers.”

It seems that it was a friendly split.  Do you agree?

We have known Jennifer Hudson the moment that she appeared on Terry Richardson’s studio.  It seems that her alter ego Jones was the one who is dominating over her during the photo shoot.

The singer is showing some fierceness on her latest photo spread for V Magazine.  Inside the magazine, Hudson revealed that people do not really know her at all.  This is something that she wants to resolve on her forthcoming album.  Hudson explains:

“Earlier in my career I was just a soloist singing other people’s songs.  Now I really want to be an artist. I want to lift the people up, have fun, create a moment. I have my own visions that I want to bring to life. People think I sit in church all day or stay at home and stare at my Oscar. It’s like I’m a nun or the president or something. I realized that people don’t really know who I am. It just feels like it’s time to take the training wheels off, you know? Let them see me.”

This is just what she has done with her new album.  According to the magazine:

“The record features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, and Babyface, and shows off a markedly different side of Hudson’s personality. Among the tracks is a song called “Whatever Makes You Happy,” an empowerment anthem in which she invites everyone to be themselves, with a very Jenniferized refrain: “We don’t give a sh-t / We don’t EVEN give a sh-t!” (“There will be a clean version for the kids,” she offers.) More than anything, these songs seem to provide Hudson the chance to finally be herself—something that, despite the fact that everyone feels like they know her, has apparently been a problem.”

There are several things that we do not know about Jennifer Hudson.  During her recent interview with Huffington Post, the singer revealed a lot of things including her sexy alter ego known as Jones.  She considers singing about sex as so overrated.  The former cruise boat singer also admits that in her entire life she had never took any alcohol except lately when she was invited in an event.

When asked about the people or the things she thought are overrated, she said:

“Girl, I can’t. Ooooh … Singing about the same old things in music is so overrated. Sex, drinkin’, the club. Okay, especially sex. Like, we [are] grownups, we ain’t got over that, like, really? Ain’t you too old for that kind of thing? Can you talk about something else? I get annoyed with those things. But I can’t answer the last question, ohhh though I want to.”

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson

What can she say about her recent, sexy alter ego as well as her new music?  Hudson answered:

“I call her Jones. That’s Jones, that’s not Jennifer. It’s so different, it’s really cool, and the music is, too. I love the energy. I got to work with Timbaland, and Pharrell, and R. Kelly.”

When did she have her first alcohol drink?  The singer said:

“Let me tell you something. No, I don’t! I’ve never had a drink in my life, but I got a little story for you that just literally happened to me. I was performing at a private event, it was a wedding. One of the groom’s kids ran up on the stage and she had a drink. I thought it was my drink that they sent on stage for me. It turns out to be her alcoholic beverage. And I was like, what is this? Turns out I had my first drink, unfortunately.”

“At first I was like, is this sparkly water? Because I’ve never had a drink. It was kinda watered down, which might’ve saved me.”

Who do you think is Hudson’s overrated person?

Last night, Jennifer Hudson received an award from People’s Choice Award in Los Angeles. However, this award is not because of her talent but this award recognizes her capacity to give back to other people.  In 2008, Hudson’s mother, brother and nephew were murdered.  She gives honor to them by creating the Julian D. King Gift Foundation.

Jennifer was joined by her sister Julia as well as her fiancé David Otunga when she accepted the Humanitarian Award and delivered the following speech:

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson

“I have to start off saying the same thing I said when I won my Oscar — look what God can do![...]This all started back home at church where we grew up. My mother always taught us that without family you have nothing, and whether you know it or not, we all are family, and what happens to the other happens to us, so it’s very important to make a difference. And for me as a kid, all it took was…I don’t even know what star it was that came to my school. I said, ‘Wow. If they did it, that mean I can do it, too.’ And that’s what we want to instill in our children to let them know if I did it then you can do it, too. We’re so quick to say we can’t or it can happen to them, but it can’t happen to me. Yes, I’m a witness that it can happen to us all.”

“It’s one thing to be a celebrity and have power. It’s only so much we can have, but it means nothing if we’re not making a difference and helping someone else [and] trying to change a life. It also feels good to see positivity acknowledged. Where we come from all you hear about is who shot who and who went to jail. We want to show them it’s starting at home in Chicago and hopefully worldwide one day to make a difference in every child’s life, but they’re only exposed to negativity. We want to show them that I came from the same area as you and if I can do it, you can do it. It does not stop there. It’s more to life than the block you live on.”

Congrats Jennifer!

During the last few years, we have witnessed the dramatic weight loss of Jennifer Hudson.  Hudson, who is representing the Weight Watchers, recently revealed her slim figure as she posed in bra and jeans.  There were a variety of reactions from her fans.  Some say that she is too thin.

It’s a fact that Hudson looks a little bit slimmer now.  Well, this is because she will be playing the character of a heroin addict on her new film entitled “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete.”

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson

Last October, Hudson revealed in her interview:

“They did request that I lose about 10 pounds for [the movie.] I don’t know that I did. [Laughs] But for “Winnie,” I did. But for this one, it was just like, “Oh, if you could lose a little more weight.” But I did learn eventually that with heroin addicts, in doing our research, that it’s not necessarily like a physical thing where you’re too thin or too heavy.  [Director George Tillman Jr.] had this thing where Gloria was so into her drugs that she sacrificed the food, like, “I don’t want to eat, I just want to get high.” So that’s what stemmed her to look like she’s lost weight or she wasn’t eating or taking care of herself.”

What can you say about her new figure now?

Jennifer Hudson was accompanied by her fiancé David Otunga during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.  There were rumors that the two have already tied the knot since Otunga was seen wearing a wedding band.  During Hudson’s interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, she admitted that she purchased a ring for Otunga and gave it to him during his birthday.  Hudson wants his fiancé to have his own engagement ring too.

Have they secretly married?  Hudson said:

“No, no. That’s a secret I don’t know nothing about. But the funny thing is, people are like, ‘When are you getting married?’ Then the next day, ‘You are married.’ And then, ‘How’s your husband?’ Y’all done married us off anyway so…”

Why was David wearing the ring during the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony?  She said:

“David is a little different. Let me explain. He wanted to have an engagement ring, too. So, for his birthday or something, I don’t remember, I got him a ring for his birthday gift.  David is the more sentimental one. Like he remembers every date, down to the time. ‘This is exactly such and such, such and such when we did…’ Valentine’s Day, you can’t even get through the house because he’s got all type of decorations, so he wanted to have his own ring. [He was like,] ‘Everyone knows you’re taken but no one knows I’m taken,’ and so that’s where his ring came from.”

Aren’t they a sweet couple?

Jennifer Hudson started her career in American Idol and now she is already included in the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.  Yesterday, she received her own star.  Hudson was wearing a white dress and accompanied by her husband, sister and son.  She looked fabulous on her new pixie cut.  She said:

“I knew I would get emotional and I’m sure my mom is in heaven like, ‘Jenny, stop crying!’ But now is the time to cry, Mama. It is. I don’t know where to start because this is an amazing honor as we all know and I did not see it coming. I’m so honored to be here with so many that I love and I feel as though we’re all a family. Even all of you guys. It’s about — I love you, too! It’s one thing to be in this type of position but it doesn’t mean anything if you can’t make a difference in the world to someone. I always say that anytime we go out. We make sure we treat everyone like family so with that being said, I’m so honored that all of my family is here with me today.”

Jennifer Hudson Jennifer Hudson

“[This star] means everything. It inspires me to just wanna continue to say, ‘Wow.’ My new goal — I’ve been blessed to achieve everything I’ve dreamt about — so my new goal is like, okay, I want to have longevity. I want to be a staple in Hollywood, and this is a sign that I can be. It’s like, ‘Wow!’ It makes me want to dream up bigger dreams.”

What can she say about reality stars who will not be able to enjoy the Walk of Fame?  She replied:

“I hope winning an Oscar cancels that out.”

“I’m a firm believer that if you keep at it, it has no choice but to give in. When I was eliminated from a reality show I said, ‘You know what? That’s okay because I’m walking away with a prize and that’s my talent.’ My gift and whatever it is I want, as long as I keep at it and work for it it will have no choice but to give in and here I am.”

Jennifer Hudson is the evidence that dreams really do come true.

Isn’t it inspiring?

Jennifer Hudson is featured in the latest issue of Manhattan Magazine.  In this issue Hudson shows us the sexy looks for fall.  She also admitted that she had never used drugs or alcohol.  When asked about her role in The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister & Pete, wherein her character is a heroin addict, she said:

‘It terrified me to play that part because I had no reference point.  I’m 31 and I’ve never, ever, ever had a drink or done a drug in my entire life. I stick with Diet Coke and Crystal Light and water.’

Aside from this character she will also be portraying the character of Winnie Mandela in her forthcoming film.  She said, ‘It was intimidating to play Winnie after seeing how much she means to the people there,. To some she’s an angel and to some she’s Satan, but either way, woo! The strength that woman possesses is amazing. We put so much into the story, and it took a lot out of us.’

The producers of the show are looking for a fresh panel so that they can regain back their 10 million viewers which they had lost two years ago.  According to an insider:

“The show’s producers feel they’ve lost their core audience.  They want to bring back former contestants in order to tell their core audience, ‘We love you’. They know they’ve made some major mistakes over the past few seasons, and they want to make it right with their fans.”

There were rumors that former contestants and winners of the show such as Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert will be one of the panel judges but there are no confirmations yet.  According to a Fox source, “It’s Idol alums bringing in the next generation.”

Who do you think will sit on the judge panel?
