While promoting Sandy Wexler on Monday (April 17) in New York City, Jennifer revealed that Whitney Houston was her main influence for her performance.
“I remember Adam and Steven Brill, the director, saying it’s kind of like a comedic version of The Bodyguard, in a way,” Jennifer told ABC. “And you definitely feel the sentiment of Whitney throughout the film, even with the song ‘DJ,’ it kind of has more of a ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’ or ‘My Name is Not Susan’ type of vibe to it. And even my style — Whitney was a huge reference for a lot of the looks for Courtney in the film.”
That same evening, Jennifer made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where she showed off her immaculate range with one of her favorite church hymns – Watch!
Jennifer Hudson showed off two fabulous looks while promoting her upcoming Netflix series Sandy Wexler!
The 35-year-old singer and actress was first spotted in a little black dress as she headed to a taping of Good Morning America on Monday (April 17) in New York City.
While on the show, Jennifer explained how her character’s journey in the entertainment industry reflected her own.
“For me, it was just finding a way into it. I remember sitting back like, ‘This is what I wanna do, but how? There’s no formula, there’s no shortcut, there’s no strategy.’ And the only thing I could do is say, keep singing and hopefully my talent makes room for me,” she said.
Later in the day, Jennifer donned a more colorful look for a taping of The Late Show.
“As an artist, when I discover music that I connect with deeply, it brings me a sense of excitement that I can’t put into words,” Jennifer said in a statement. “That’s how I feel about ‘Remember Me‘. Everything about it is special – from co-writing it with Jamie, to the recording process, to how it made me feel along the way. I just can’t wait to share it with the world.”
“Remember Me” is available for download on iTunes now!
While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new original Netflix movie Sandy Wexler on Thursday evening (April 6) in Los Angeles, the 50-year-old entertainer reminisced about some of his time with Don in honor of the legendary comedian’s death that same day at age 90.
Jimmy, who also presented a montage of some of Don‘s greatest moments on his show, began by remembering an occasion when Adam and Don were on the show together.
Don, known for being an insult comic, shouted, “let’s take up a collection and buy Adam a suit.” On another occasion, Adam was having dinner with Steve Buscemi just after the release of Reservoir Dogs and Don happened to be there. The comic threw a barb at Buscemi, joking, “I saw your movie, Mr. Pink, more like Mr. Stink.” And then he turned his attention to Adam, quipping, ‘I saw Happy Gilmore, it’s amazing how no talent can get you a movie.’”
The track – written and produced by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds – is from Adam Sandler‘s latest original movie coming exclusively to Netflix called Sandy Wexler, which takes place all the way back in 1994, starring Adam himself as a goober of a talent agent named Sandy Wexler with a roster of peculiar clients who are from from making it big. But Sandy Wexler’s life changes when he stumbles upon a new face, and more importantly, a new voice.
The new voice being Courtney Clarke (Hudson), an aspiring singer who the titular agents takes under his wing and somehow ends up having a fledgling career despite having a complete buffoon for representation.
The Netflix movie is set to debut on Friday (April 14) – Watch the music video for “Mr. DJ” below!
