[No Filter!] Jennifer Hudson Says Singing About Sex Is Overrated
There’s a lot of things we didn’t know about Jennifer Hudson and one of them is that she has a new, sexy alter ego named Jones! Meow!
This week, she revealed that and more in an interview with Huffington Post as a part of their #nofilter interview series. Among many of the facts we learned about the former cruise boat singer, was that she’s never drank alcohol until recently (by accident), and that she thinks singing about sex is sooooo overrated!
Peep a few highlights:
On who or what she thinks is overrated
Girl, I can’t. Ooooh … Singing about the same old things in music is so overrated. Sex, drinkin’, the club. Okay, especially sex. Like, we [are] grownups, we ain’t got over that, like, really? Ain’t you too old for that kind of thing? Can you talk about something else? I get annoyed with those things. But I can’t answer the last question, ohhh though I want to.
On her new, sexy alter ego and new music
I call her Jones. That’s Jones, that’s not Jennifer. It’s so different, it’s really cool, and the music is, too. I love the energy. I got to work with Timbaland, and Pharrell, and R. Kelly.
On how she recently had her first alcoholic beverage
Let me tell you something. No, I don’t! I’ve never had a drink in my life, but I got a little story for you that just literally happened to me. I was performing at a private event, it was a wedding. One of the groom’s kids ran up on the stage and she had a drink. I thought it was my drink that they sent on stage for me. It turns out to be her alcoholic beverage. And I was like, what is this? Turns out I had my first drink, unfortunately.
At first I was like, is this sparkly water? Because I’ve never had a drink. It was kinda watered down, which might’ve saved me.
On when she feels most at peace?
I feel most at peace either when my son hugs me and cuddles me. He holds mama. It’s so sweet. That. And, also, when I’m listening to just music — no voice, just music. Like a piano or an instrument, just that is so peaceful to me. Or if I’m playing with my closet at home. Yeah. Try to leave it at that.
Now, J Hud knows people are going to want to know who she thinks is overrated. Ha!
