Jennifer Hudson covers April's issue of Entertainment Weekly. In this issue she discusses her music, the murders, church, and more. The below comes out straight from EW's interview with Jennifer Hudson.
Hudson is now embarking on a 27-show tour, coheadlining with singer Robin Thicke. “This is what I love to do, and I hate to sit still,” she said. “I have been active for the past four or five years, and to be working like that and then to just stop and all you hear is the clock ticking…” She shakes her head. “That will drive you crazy.”
Hudson still does not talk about the murders, even with those closest to her. “I try not to say anything about it,” says her childhood friend and longtime assistant, Walter Williams III. “She’s okay as long as people don’t bring it up. She’s trying to put all of that behind her.”
“We were what you call ‘born in the church,’” Hudson says. “I would go with my grandmother and my mom, and when I was little, I would fall asleep on their laps in the choir stand. She adds, “The church has given me balance…Too often we look at things through human eyes. But when you look at the world spiritually, it makes far more sense. I don’t think I would be here without it.”
