Oh yeah, LorenAshley, not winning WAS the best thing that ever happened to her. She's her own person now and can do her own thing. My fingers will be crossed for her tonight!

Love her! She looks great!

I think NOT winning AI is what was best for her.

Boogie - One of MAC's current colour collections is "Barbie Loves MAC" complete with (sold-out) dolls, totes and tees. Whether or not her negative comments about AI are true, they reflect badly on her. Pad's right - now is the time for her to be gracious. Jen has to play the game - being right and hurting her image is stupid.

I don't think she's bitter that she didn't win, maybe a little THEN, but not now. Winning AI means you're trapped for a time and your first album is what THEY want, not what you want. I don't think she even has to respect AI. Just show some grace about a show that got her name out there. It's the smart thing to do in the harsh music industry. People have long memories and people you think of as one dimensional actually have their fingers in more pies than you think. My saying this doesn't mean I don't agree with Jennifer Hudson and that I don't support her, because I do. I liked her on AI, but thought she didn't fit there. She had too much... not presence, something else... spirit maybe, to fit into the AI mold. She's so talented and was so wonderful in Dreamgirls.

Even if it's true, she shouldn't bad mouth AI. I was in the Coast Guard- I wen through BOOT CAMP! Now, that is hard work, and stuff happens, you know? But I still respect (and will not bad mouth) the Coast Guard or the American government because the Coast Guard provided many experiences and opportunities that I would otherwise not have. As far as Jennifer Hudson goes, I don't even know who she is, but it seems like she is a bad sport because she did not win. (However, I don't even watch AI). If she wanted it bad enough (and was voted into the final winner), she would have got it. Even with Simon & his cruel jokes & what-not. The world (especially Hollywood) is a cruel place to be sometimes. That's reality. So even if it is true, sometimes, it's something that we all have to deal with at one point or another.

It's not cool? Maybe it's true.

I just read Padraigin's comment about what Jennifer said about American Idol! :( That's not cool of her to say that!

Also, she complained about Simon making fun of her clothes on idol....they were horrible and her poodle looking weave was not a good look. She has improved drastically.

And I love her outfit but the top of her dress is too tight. The pulling is messy.

I am happy that she is finding success. However, I did not like her on idol at all. I believe she can sing, but I do not like her music style.

I'd kill for her complexion.

I hope she doesn't let Hollywood suck her in. Hollywood spits out most of the people it sucks in.

I don't watch AI, so I know nothing about Jennifer Hudson. I was simply stating what I had heard. Skye, I totally agree with what you said. And Loren, I don't know too many people on here that actually LIKE skanky Hilton and Hohan. Oh, and the point she was trying to make by saying she's keeping the same car, etc is that she won't allow Hollywood to suck her in...in answer to your what's the big deal, Loren.

I hope she looks FABULOUS on Oscar night, because all eyes will be on her.
Padraigin Padraigin 8 years
I just jope it fits well - she has a hard body to fit and I want her to look fabulous!
lorenashley lorenashley 8 years
Let's hope so. I saw her on Oprah. She performed and did an excellent job too. I Can't wait to see what's she's wearing.

I don't know, there are two from Babel (Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi). They could cancel each other out. I loved Abigail Breslin, as well, and Cate Blanchett can't ever be counted out... but I think it's Jen Hudson's year.
lorenashley lorenashley 8 years
I'm sure she'll survive.

Jennifer Hudson--yawn. I just don't like this girl.
lorenashley lorenashley 8 years
I want her to win too but part of me feels like they are gonna give it to the chick from Babel. I just have a feeling.

It's part of the joy that IS American Idol. You don't go on that show thinking the world is all about puppies and rainbows and that Simon is the nicest man in the world and pulls fluffy bunnies out of his ass. The show is cruel. But it DID give her exposure she would not have had. Hey, I LIKE Jennifer Hudson, she is just allowing the media to pull her into the Diva game a little too early and she needs to watch out for that. I'm rooting for her big time to take home the Oscar. I think she deserves it hands down.
lorenashley lorenashley 8 years
I'm sure she is grateful. Yes, they did put her name out there but that does not give them the right to bad talk her.
DulceSkye DulceSkye 8 years
Simon dissing her or not, she should still be grateful that AI put her name out there. She's also just beginning her journey to stardom, and humility is what people want from her right now. She can pull the diva act when she's been around for a good long time, like Mariah or Beyonce. Not that I want Jennifer to become a diva, but if she chooses that route, she needs to pay her dues first. I love her though. She's everywhere, but I like her a lot, so it doesn't bother me as much.
lorenashley lorenashley 8 years
Even if she does move and get a new car. What's the big deal? Many people upgrade and are still down to earth. It's funny to me how people on here love the likes of Lohan, Paris Hilton, and all those other skanks. People who are famous for nothing. Then here comes Jan and she's getting called overexposed, and stuck up ALREADY. I believe that she totally deserves all the attention she's getting. It's pretty laughable.
