    Sorry, the first link didn’t work but this one should…..

    I just don’t like false accusations.


    Please, the insults and hatin’ has to stop. Actually, what is your album cover looking like these days. You all are way too critical. Apparently, some of you are professional photogs. Have a coke and a smile……….

    If this industry wasn’t so visual, thickness would not matter.

    Get real! How about a “LIVE” appearance sometime very, very soon — like yesterday? We’d be happy with a “LIVE” appearance even if she were singing an old song as it would help to dispel the photoshop [or not] rumor regarding the album cover. We’d be better able to SEE for ourselves. Now tell me, has anyone seen Ms. Thang in the flesh lately?

    Atleast they photoshopped the photo. She should be ashamed of her size. Being obese is disgusting, it shows an obvious lack of discipline and self-respect. Corpulence is walking death. Clothing larger than a size 12 should come with a warning label. It’s great that god blessed her with a beautiful voice- pure talent. God also blessed her with a body- she should tend to it.

  • big Mar

    WOW!!! Looks like all the haters are out again, the ones that are completely jealous as F%ck because she is HOT now and they’re not. Especially the FAT B!TCH that says she tries to lose weight BUT can’t because she is too LAZY…..HAHAHAHHAHA. That just goes to show the rest of you only BAD TALK because she IS DOING something and your not. LOOK at her face in the video on YOUTUBE, you see her bone structure and she lost the BIG CHEEKS. That means she has lost considerable BODY FAT and it usually shows in the face and arms as well. Even her waist looks smaller in the video. She probably looks thinner on the album because shw is wearing black and it is some sort of spandex/poly mix that smooths the body curves out. It seems like the people that are bad mouthing on this site put their faith in FAKE artists that can’t sing, and I am not gonna go into that list. Have some respect for yourselves and instead of sitting on this BLOG with a doughnut in your FAT mouth try and get up and do something for yourself instead of brining others down. Jennifer really doesn’t care if you are not her fan because she has millions more that will lover her for once small minisucle IDIOT LIKE YOU!! C-YA

  • Clara

    This is ridiculous… i hate it. I love her voice and i loved her for not caring what ppl thought about her weight but this is just disgusting. Its not her and she should b offended by this. Photoshop J-Hud??? SHAME ON U!!!

  • Kiesha martain

    why does everyone think in order to be succesful in america you have to be a size 2, i really hope jennifer reconsider this thought of her 1st album cover…. just remeber i would have bought your album if you were a size 24 woman plus or a size 2 because you are talented.


    HATERS! They wish they could be photo-”hyped” – no butts, no breasts, no lips, and all! LOL!

    I don’t care what size she is – SING GIRL SING!

    Jennifer – Unlike Amy Winehouse, all doped up and pencil thin and singing about NOT going to rehab (I guess she’s keeping it real for THEM), they can’t find anything about you to talk about!



    You idiot! Jennifer Hudson has NEVER been obese. That just goes to show how warped-minded Americans have become when it comes to weight. Being a size 12, 14, 16, or 18 does not mean you’re obese. On top of that Jenifer is 5’7″ tall. She can choose or not choose to carry the weight…she has the frame and will look good no matter.

    And there’s nothing wrong with changing your image if one chooses to. She’s in the entertainment business. It’s her money, her talent…if she wants to make herself over…that’s her business.

  • Austin

    This was photoshoped a little bit, but I interned for the company this was taken months ago when she lots the weight but she put it back on this was the time around the grammy awards. Proof…


    OMG! Is it any wonder she is hesitant to display her natural image? She has to sell to a public that is making such shallow comments even when she looks incredible! “Jelly Belly,” Lunch Lady Arms and stretchmarks,” “Fatso.” Unbelievable. If she’s getting comments like that after a good Photoshopping, what the hell would you guys say if her real body was featured on the album cover? Jen looks and sounds great. No one is focusing on real talent anymore. This is why the industry perpetuates unrealistic and destructive standards of beauty particularly for women, and why artists have been releasing absolute and utter garbage trying to pass it off as music. From what I’ve heard, Jen’s lost a good bit of weight. Though there’s been some retouching to this photo, it’s possible that her photo is not as retouched as everyone thinks. I’d love to see her in a live performance.

  • Lilwun

    its airbrushed… shes just lost alot of weight

    cant wait for the album

  • Shae

    ya’ll a bunch of f~~king idiots!!!!!!
    She lost weight for her new movie with Queen Latifiah

  • wooooow

    WOW I guess her weight was a main concern for album sales because she is NOT skinny in real life. Shes fine the way she is but it just goes to show her major insecurity. Too bad this backfired on her and everyone thinks shes a moron now. Flaunt what you got or go excercise!!!!

  • shelley

    who cares. it’s juat a picture. get over it. i absolutely love her.

  • blackbarbie

    umm ya she is cute in all and she is thick….that is not her waste the photoshop is excellent. she was fine the way she was she doesnt need to be ashamed. She had a nice full shape, come on jennifer

  • nbaker

    wow…. instead of celebrating her accomplishment, why must we always go to what we perceive as negative and put so much energy into that…. CONGRATS, J HUD!!!!!!

  • kj

    Does it really matter if the pic was edited or not? I mean really, there are more prevalent issues facing society . Are people so SHALLOW that this is the only thing they can find to talk about. If so, perhaps you should consider getting a hobby or something to make YOUR life more fulfulling because clearly you have nothing going on. END OF DISCUSSION

  • britt

    LOL people were born haters and will die haters!


    Loads of people are photoshopped all the time why the negative and at time backward comments? Sheesh get a life. Great lady great singer end of……!

  • keya

    well i hope everyone chill with the comments. telling the truth is one thing but degrading someone is another. we all have flaws but if we have to put others down about their flaws then we have a problem as people. all body types have flaws but the great thing about it is that God looks past our flaws. She just lost her mother and brother and her little nephew is missing. How she looks on a cd cover is the last thing she is concerned about. I have her and my family in her prayers and my heart goes out to her. Please stop with the comments and lets learn as people to support each other instead of throwing words out there that hurts someone. If we are gentle with our words we do not have to worry about offending others. Half of what we say as people should not even be said. Do on to others as you would want them to do on to you. If he picture was photoshopped it is not anyone’s problem but hers.

  • Delphane y wytch

    I think she looks great. She seems to be an down to earth sistuh! Yall stop hating. You know she looks good. Give it to the sistuh. Dang!!!!

  • Delphane y wytch


  • nichole

    well i think that it is a nice pic, and frankly the pic shouldn’t matter, it should not matter if she looks a size 2 or 12. and anyways for those who didn’t know, J-H most likely didn’t any words in what her album cover pic looked like, cause her manager (whom ever that is) wanted what he/she thought would be best, you kno thatwould sell the most albums…. so shut up with all the negative comments about her album cover looks like cause neither one of you have one…. and by the way, her album is the best that i have heared this year


  • just a person (:

    i actullay think all you putting her down should SHUT UP!
    do you know her, didnt think so
    get over it,
    if someone said that about tou, you would be offended
    i give ehr props for wanting her voice to be heard
    and i have this album
    it’s amazing
    so think before you go saying stuff
    your a no-body
    your nothing
    no-one cares about your opinion, so it may as well be nice, no-ones gonna take any notice !!

    sort it out, give her a break
    she’s doing well for herself
    she may not have had a choice in the way she looked
    she does what it takes !

  • rachel bloomer

    your all bloody evil just leave her alone! can any of u sing like her? well shut the hell up!

  • vee norfleet

    I think that you all sound really silly and childish. Who cares who photoshopped what…. The girl is talented and no matter how petty you people show yourself to be shes going to have a very successful career. STOP HATING

  • Annais Benningfield

    WTF, guys, I mean, seriously! Get over it. Yes, I agree that fat is unhealthy and I am glad she’s getting it togther, but does that have ANYTHING to do with her damn talent??? HELL NO. The girl can SANG and that’s the whole damn point! Besides, she’s beautiful either way. This is America’s problem, this is the exact damn reason why little girls and young women starve themselves and/or purge! To “fit in” and not be hated by their idiot peers. Get the fuck over it, jeez.

  • Liberace

    Does anyone else think they tried to make her look like Lauryn Hill?

    Cuz that’s what I am seeing.

  • tatiana

  • debrito

    I love Jannifer Hudson she is my heart for real.
    Iam in love for her. if i could i would ask her to marry me .

  • ipissrainbowzz

    @Chaneace: This is why I hate living in Chicago – because of all the ignorant, obnoxious cunts with attitudes like yours. Anger manage yourself, bitch & take some English/grammar classes, no reason to have the vocabulary of a 4th grader like the rest of you ppl.

  • poppyjones

    will you all get a life, and let the woman be happy. At least let her enjoy her life no matter how she looks.
