Everything’s Coming Up Jennifer Hudson

Former American Idol contestant, Jennifer Hudson, doesn’t seem to be faring too badly. Since her elimination from the reality television talent show, Hudson was cast in the splashy film adaptation of the Broadway powerhouse, “Dreamgirls,” and most recently landed a record deal.

Access Hollywood has confirmed that the former “American Idol” contestant signed a record deal with Clive Davis’ J Records. Jennifer revealed her plans to Access this past Saturday at the “A Fine Romance” event in Hollywood. “My album, I’ll be recording my album! I just signed my record deal 2 weeks ago. So I’m starting on that in January.”

You go with your adorable self. Oh, and speaking of American Idol, can anyone tell me what’s going on with Ruben Studdard? He makes me nervous. I feel like he’s about a McRib away from Chris Farley-town.
