Jennifer Hudson: Two 'Essence' April 2011 Covers!

Jennifer Hudson: Two 'Essence' April 2011 Covers!

Jennifer Hudson graces the cover of Essence‘s April issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress and singer, who appeared on another Essence April 2011 cover, had to share with the mag:

On motherhood: “My wish is to be at least half as good as my mother was, as patient and as loving as she was, and to just give that to my son.”

On her weight loss: “I didn’t realize that so many people were watching me or that so many people were interested. Now people come up to me saying, ‘You’ve inspired me,’ and I’m like, Wow.”

On playing Winnie Mandela in Winnie: “We were supposed to shoot the film two years ago. But with all that happened in my life, they waited. Even the director was saying, ‘For you to take this project on with everything that happened shows you are really passionate about it.’ So I just hopped into it. I just really wanted to be a part of telling the story.”

Funny how her face is less attractive now that she lost the weight (body looks good, but not the face). I wish she would SHUT UP and stop talking about her weight and just sing, enough already!!

This is sooooo photoshoped! I mean yes, she lost weight .. but it’s still not the Jenifer Hudson we saw at the academy awards ..

OOh, another black post about black girl that I am envious of. I wish I was a pretty black woman but I am fat so I will stay tuned to blog and wait for every black post and make snide comment about black girls. I am jealous. I have no life. I wish I was famous black girl with money. My life is pathetic!

LOL, WHILE YOU PEOPLE ARE RISKING YOUR TEN DOLLAR AN HOUR JOB TO SIGN OFF ABOUT JHUD, SHE IS SPENDING HER MILLIONS AND LOOKING GREAT.

These people would be nobodies if there weren’t people like us to talk about them.

This is a great look and a good color for her. And I LOOOOVe that the boobs are finally covered :-)

She looks phenomenal! But people need to start talkin about her new album dropping soon (3/22) cause it’s gonna be bomb! Check out her single “Where You At” if you haven’t yet! http://bit.ly/gGYHsr

really we dont need another american playing a south african and completely messing up the accent. You act as if there aren’t actors here? i bet she’ll sound nigerian like whoopi goldberg did in Sarafina.

u guys sound real bitter all she is trying to do is live her dream and support her family leave her alone. she has turned alot of negativity about her into a positive and if she doesn’t want to talk about her family’s murders y make her relive that and if she gets a part in a movie support her not tear her down

I can’t believe how many “haters” there are on this site. As a woman, I feel ashamed that so many of us act like children. Just be happy for her – she lookds great! And have a look at who you are – inside and out- I’m seeing some UGLINESS in YOU and your horrible responses!
