Jennifer Hudson to Light American Idol’s Bed on Fire With American Idol in it

February 1st, 2007 // 5 Comments


Jennifer Hudson is claiming American Idol “abused” her . Yeah, abused you right into a hit movie and an Oscar nomination! I wouldn’t take back the night just yet, honey.

“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,” Hudson, 25, tells the new issue of Essence.

“You become a character – I became the girl in the turkey wrapping.” (On one episode, she wore an unflattering outfit that earned that label.) “I just knew I had to sing my way out of it. I don’t believe in looking back, and I didn’t look back.”

I wish I actually watched American Idol so I could have seen that outfit, it sounds like it was amazing. Jennifer went on to say that there is no feud with Beyonce and that they totally “clicked” from day one. And something about how her and Beyonce have a similar mole on their necks. I guess that’s clickage. She’s a shoe-in for an Oscar despite being an average actress that shined becaue she was the best thing in a crap movie. But that means American Idol can crow about it, and will be on for the next jillion years. By then, Paula will be judging from a wheelchair. Not because she’s old. But because she’s very high.

    They were pretty brutal to her in American Idol.

    Couldn’t agree more. Jennifer was the best thing in a crap movie. I hope she wins.

    Wow, someone needs to check themselves. Everytime I see her her head is a smidge bigger than before.

    Big head, little head, fat, small, long weave, no weave, I like this woman. I do hope she stays grounded and please Jennifer “DO NOT GET A BLONDE WEAVE” EM K.

    Brace yourselves, I’ve got a lot to say:
    Jennifer is not biting the hand that fed her because she has already given credit to AI for the exposure she’s received. But that’s all they should get credit for. Besides, that interview in Essence may have been done a while ago and is just now published making it seem like she’s being “ungrateful”. Frankly, she isn’t the first former Idol contestant to have less than stellar things to say about the show–she’s just the most successful at this point. I watched season 3 and they were pretty awful to her–and that was just what was televised. She was honest about her experience and I don’t think she should be condemned for that! FIN
