You're Gonna Love Jennifer Hudson

You're Gonna Love Jennifer Hudson

Dreamgirls star Jennifer Hudson is featured in the February/March 2007 issue of Giant Magazine shot by photographer Mark Alesky. It’s Jennifer‘s first major entertainment magazine cover and she looks like a star! The Golden Globe winner speaks out on her weight and her “fight” with Beyonce. Check out some choice excerpts below:

  • On the rumored fued with Beyonce: “I’m too busy trying to enjoy my blessings to be dwelling in mess. It’s not about that. It’s supposed to be about enjoying it. But then again, when something is good, people are always gonna try to find something wrong with it and try to throw a monkey wrench in there somewhere. We support each other as much as we did on day one. I mean, come on! That’s Beyonce! We’d rather see people focus their attention on our work.”
  • On her size: “Look, I used to be a size 22. Now, I’m a size 12. When I go to Hollywood stuff, I’m the biggest girl there. And I could care less. I still feel sexy and pretty whoever I’m standing next to because when I’m out in the real world, I’m the size of the average woman. And there is nothing wrong with us. There’s something wrong when you’re just skin and bones. It’s not cute. I love my size, period…. You gotta be comfortable in your own skin! I’m comfortable in mine. I don’t have a problem with it at all. I work with a trainer these days—to tone, not to lose. This jelly ain’t going nowhere.”
  • On her love life: “My boyfriend is my childhood sweetheart. We’ve been together since 1999! It’s crazy. I’m the dreamer and he supports my dreams – always has. He’s happy to be my rock and let me fly. I think it makes more sense to date someone outside of showbiz. He is stationary, stable, a home base. I’m on planes, here and there and always on the go. It’d be a whole different story if he was moving around, too. Instead I have a patient, understanding man who’s there for me when I get home. He’s home to me.”

In the latest issue of Essence magazine, Jennifer Hudson shares about her Idol abuse she experienced: “On American Idol, you go through this mental thing; you’ve got to get yourself back together. You’ve been abused, misled and brainwashed to believe whatever they want you to think.”

You can download Jennifer Hudson‘s single “Over It” here (mp3). It sounds unfinished to me — hopefully it’s being reworked in the studio before it hits mainstream radio…
