Mess of the Moment: Jennifer Hudson

29 04 2008

I didn’t realize we still cared about Jennifer Hudson but the paps obviously do. She clearly doesn’t even care about herself judging on how she was dressed at LAX a few days ago. She looks like she raided Lindsay Lohan’s and Amy Winehouse’s closets for this flight. Leggings as pants and ballet flats, REALLY? Don’t get me started on that painter’s smock she got from Ross Michael’s. More after the jump.

Jennifer Hudson (Remember Her?) Performs In A Bathroom

14 03 2008

OK, it’s not as bad as I made it out to sound but I know what my next joke for a washed-up singer is going to be.

Jennifer Hudson performed a new song called “Stand Up” while applying makeup in the mirror. I’m mad at this because it just looks so unnatural, like she was trying to come off like she was just putting on some makeup and her man ran into the room with a camera and caught her SANGIN’. She is squealing on this. It doesn’t sound good to me but I guess some people like that overdone wailing.

This is very “Apollo” to me and it’s crazy because I keep forgetting she won an Oscar.

J. Hud Is Putting In Work This Year

12 11 2007

What!! She got the YT people recognizing that she can get that YT money! Barbara Walters? GET EM J. HUD!!!

Jennifer Hudson is literally ‘fascinating.’ The Oscar-winner will be featured with Justin Timberlake, Victoria and David Beckham, Katherine Heigl, former President Bill Clinton and MySpace moguls Tom Anderson and Chris DeWolfe on “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2007,” which premieres Thursday, Dec. 6 on ABC.

I’m a huge fan and I love that she is still going forward with her career. Her “Sex In The City” role is sure to put her on another playing field in terms of the roles she can get. Somewhere, Megan Goode and Monica Calhoun are putting word-curses on her and stabbing dolls with her signature chesticles, trust me on that.

However, Justin Timberlake is NOT fascinating, and can sit his coke-snortin’ self DOWN somewhere. Katherine Heigl is REALLY annoying to me as well, and “Grey’s Anatomy” has been a giant snooze-fest according to all my friends who watch that shlock. Boo on her.

What, Tommi Rae Hynie and Andre J aka Gaymonn weren’t available? I find her last name to be fascinating and his man-woman schtick to be as equally fascinating, what with that beard and all.

Jennifer Hudson To Be In “Sex And The City” Movie

10 09 2007

Jennifer Hudson

J. Hud got another role! Must be nice to hear “Oscar Winner” always at the beginning of your name. I.Am.Not.Mad.Jen!

Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson has joined the cast of “Sex and the City: The Movie” for New Line Cinema, which begins filming next week in New York.

Hudson will play “Louise,” the assistant to Sarah Jessica Parker’s “Carrie Bradshaw” in the film based on the hit HBO comedy series.

The movie revolves around the four main characters’ lives in Manhattan four years after the series ended.

Hudson, who won a best supporting actress Oscar for “Dreamgirls,” recently completed production on Rowan Woods’ ensemble drama “Winged Creatures” starring Kate Beckinsale, Forrest Whitaker, Jackie Earle Haley and Dakota Fanning. Sony is distributing the film.

The former “American Idol” contestant is also in the studio working on her debut album for Arista Records, due for release in the first quarter of 2008.

My only complaint is that she playing the assistant LOL. What, she couldn’t be an up & coming writer or journalist or something? Long as she ain’t a nanny or some ish, I guess I won’t have to riot in the streets. Other than that, get that money Jen! That’s that good white folk money too, it ain’t no Tatyana-Ali-straight-to-DVD change either LOL.

Not sure how that album is gonna sound though…I heard the label has been scrapping songs left and right. The few songs I heard weren’t the business either, and I’m a huge fan. I’m sorry, you don’t pair that majestic voice on a duet with Ne-Yo. NO NO NO. Hell to tha no!! Look at this Youtube video someone sent me yesterday:

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr9WX8xTvCY]

How you just sangin’ like that in a closet. HOW? I don’t know if that was a closet or hotel room, but I sure did throw the white sheet over myself after I heard this.

Beyoncé says “I love my sistas!!”

2 05 2007

Beyoncé tells Vibe she blames the media — surprise, surprise — for rumors of her alleged rift with Jennifer Hudson, saying that “society” loves to see her beef with other black women.

“There is a typical rumor every single time I’m involved with an African American female,” the singer said. “Before I even meet them, I already know the rumor because that’s just - it is what it is. It’s society and it has nothing to do with me. But what do I do? I worked with Britney, I’ve worked with Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and they don’t start that, whenever it’s two black women, it’s…unfortunate”.

Funny, and I thought it was your lacefront lighting on fire when the camera panned to you after Jennifer won her Globe and/or Oscar. Stupid me.

Jennifer Hudson being considered to play Aretha Franklin

25 04 2007

Jennifer Hudson is up for consideration to play Aretha Franklin in a silver screen adaptation of the Queen of Soul’s life. Aretha, who is working on a musical stage-based version as well, is reportedly hand-picking the cast herself. (SOHH)

She’ll probably win an Oscar for this too while Angela Bassett does a sequel to “Mr. 3000″ to pay her car note. SMH.

Jennifer Hudson’s new role

29 03 2007

Hollywood Wiretap reports that Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) is playing fellow Oscar winner Forest Whitaker’s daughter in Winged Creatures, now shooting in Los Angeles.

Hudson joins Kate Beckinsale, Dakota Fanning, Guy Pearce, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeanne Tripplehorn and Embeth Davidtz in the film, being directed by Rowan Woods (Little Fish).

The story follows the witnesses to a brutal murder suicide in a fast food restaurant as they cope with the aftermath of the incident and how they affect the people who help them along the way.

This just SCREAMS “Crash”. They might as well put “Just give us the fucking Oscar” on the promo posters.

Can J. Hud get anymore free shit?

13 03 2007

Fresh on the heels of trying to “diva” her way out of the Soul Train Awards, TMZ.com reports that Jennifer Hudson has won yet another prize.

And this time I’m officially hating.

Burger King, Hudson’s former employer before her sudden shoot to superstardom, has given the actress/singer free Burger King for life.

“In response to Jennifer’s recent comments in which she asked if she should be thanking Burger King, we say thanks, but no thanks are necessary,” says the BK Lounge. “To further show our support for Jennifer, and make sure she never has to sing for her supper again, Burger King Corporation is giving her a pre-paid BK Crown Card that will be automatically reloaded for life.”

As if she needs it! Bitch has enough money that she can afford to turn down $3 million movie roles because someone else has to get naked! What they NEED to do is give free meals to people like me. The little guys. Because I deserve it and because I said so.

Is J. Hud a prude?

6 03 2007

Jennifer Hudson reportedly turned down a $3 million role in an upcoming Warner Bros. movie because it featured nudity. But get this… it wasn’t even miss thang’s character who had to get naked! Apparently she’s not down with nudity in movies because she’s a role model for young black women or some madness like that.

Shit. For $3 mil I’d walk around the set naked, drive home naked, shop for groceries naked. I don’t know what her problem is.

Jennifer Hudson does Essence

17 02 2007

Our girl Fresh over at Crunk & Disorderly hooked it up with these flicks, so shouts to her. I’ll say one thing - this is looking one hell of a lot better than the mess they called her Vogue shoot. I’m just about sick of her, but I can’t hate on Jen doin’ her thing.

Grammy after party drama from all over

13 02 2007

Did Beyoncé snub Jennifer Hudson after the Grammys?

A source tells us Beyoncé’s handlers did not want Hudson’s name on the guest list for a party she threw with People magazine at Eleven in West Hollywood.

“At a lot of events recently, it’s been all about Jennifer Hudson,” sniffs an insider. “Beyoncé is successful because she’s continually been out there. She doesn’t want to look like she’s slipping.”

***

There was more drama between X-rated co-stars Ray J and Kim Kardashian: Our snitch said she had him thrown out of her party.

(Ray’s rep spins it like this: “He went to Kim’s party and he got in, but he found the party boring, so he left soon thereafter.”)

***

Diddy angrily confronted Naomi Campbell at Jermaine Dupri’s Grammy after-party, according to a witness.

The late-night bash took place after Clive Davis‘ annual party. “[Diddy] just started screaming at her when he saw her,” says the spy. “No one could believe it. He was screaming obscenities at her, and also screaming at Terrence Howard, who was with her.”

Campbell, however, brushed it off. “Naomi played it totally cool,” says the party guest.

Another source tells me that while the two used to enjoy a flirtatious friendship, their relationship soured under the influence of Diddy’s baby-mama.

Kim Porter hates her,” says the snitch. “There was also an issue that Diddy had wanted her to be the face of Sean John’s women’s line - but didn’t want to pay her.”

But a third insider adds: “[Naomi’s] circle of friends have been trying to help her get her life straight. But they feel all they’ve done has been in vain and she’s constantly causing trouble. She’s been a disloyal friend.” (ONTD)

Damn, they should have filmed the Grammy after parties instead of the actual Grammys this year.

Why They Do Her Like This!?

13 02 2007

I’m all for a black woman being on the cover of Vogue — it hasn’t happened in like, 20+ years I think or something like that.

But…this is NOT a good look!

It’s akin to that VIBE controversy a while back when they had Mary J. Blige on there lookin like a space alien from the Planet Lace Front.

WHY did Annie Liebovitz take this picture!? Jennifer looks like she is trying to take a bite out of crime. They did my girl WRONG. And I love Jen and she has been looking FABULOUS lately.

We should campaign. Liebovitz must have been on SHROOMS. Let’s start a petition!

Mean Mat Knowles on a rampage

19 12 2006
Mathew Knowles... in a box

I’m told things soured between the Knowles family and Jennifer Hudson because Daddy Knowles tried unsuccessfully to woo the former American Idol contestant as a client to his Houston-based Music World Entertainment management company.

“He tried to sign her halfway through production of Dreamgirls because he wanted to be her manager,” my source says, “but Jennifer turned him down. That’s when things really went south.”

Although Hudson already had management during this time, a source tells me Matthew has recently told some people he’s actually been managing her “for a while now.”

“He walks around saying he’s her manager, and everyone is like, ‘No, you’re not,’ ” a source says.

In other words, it doesn’t look like Beyoncé has a problem with Hudson getting so much of the Dreamgirls attention. It looks like it’s Daddy’s bruised ego that’s causing the ruckus.

I’m told that Daddy was so insulted by her refusal to sign with him that he demanded the movie be re-edited to lessen Hudson’s screen time and boost Beyoncé’s. He argued that his daughter was being shortchanged but was rebuffed by the studio and the filmmakers. In one meeting with director Bill Condon, I’m told, Beyoncé’s mom, Tina, went into a “tirade” about how he ruined the movie for her daughter. “It was supposed to be her Oscar role,” Tina hissed, according to a source.

Matthew and Tina Knowles did not return calls by deadline.

As for Beyoncé and Hudson, a source close to Dreamgirls says they get along just fine. “It’s the dad,” the source said. “He’s just like Curtis, Jamie Foxx’s character in Dreamgirls.”

E!

LMAO @ Mat ‘n’ Tina. Erin and I have been getting a kick out of these two for a while now. They are on some other shit and they just don’t give a fuck who knows it. In related news, Mat is suing MediaTakeOut for their claims that Beyonce is 32 instead of 25. In this news clip, they make a good point of showing Beyoncé performing on “Star Search” in 1991 and asking whether she looks 10 or 17.

I’m going to ask Beyonce to stop wearing these ugly mermaid’s tail dresses. I like how Tina is back there in the first picture looking like Rose Nylund from the Golden Girls.
