Jennifer Hudson is still that same girl who walked across the “American Idol” stage in 2004 (with the addition of a few a major awards, movie roles and a svelte new frame). Jennifer Hudson has managed to stay humble even with all of her success and that’s because she doesn’t know any other way to be.
“I think I’ve always been the same,” Jennifer said in a candid interview on HelloBeautiful InterludesLIVE. “For the most part. I’ve been told ‘Wow. That’s one thing about you…you’ve never changed.'” Her humility could be attributed to her happy demeanor or a testament to upbringing. “I have a heavy mind and I’ve had heavy life experiences and played heavy characters and things like that. People think I’m this deep, deep person. Again, I always look at things from a positive way and that’s shown through the music. That’s who I am”
Jennifer Hudson is undergoing a transformation right before our eyes. She has a new sound and edgy image, but that hasn’t affected her positive personality.
Watch Jennifer Hudson go deeper than ever before and open up about her life and career (and perform her hot new songs including “Walk It Out”) on InterludesLIVE airing July 28 at 9pm EST on TVOne. Plus, join us on Twitter @HelloBeautiful where we’ll be live Tweeting the action!
