Jennifer Hudson was in Paris last week for a day. Then it was on to Washington, arriving yesterday. Looks really good. Really, really good. But you know that already. We ALL know that. She went on Weight Watchers and she trained with Harley Pasternak and that made her super popular again, you know being thin and everything, so now she’s promoting a new album …

And it better have some good songs…

Because Duana and I just talked about this while she was making her oatmeal and both of us trying not to gag at Gwyneth Paltrow’s Glee playing in the background. (Sidebar: it is SO f-cking bad. SO BAD!) Do you know any Jennifer Hudson songs? Like, not Dreamgirls songs, but Jennifer Hudson songs? Can you without hesitation beat out a line?

If I say Umbrella, you could give me the chorus, right?

Admit it, if I say Avril Lavigne Complicated, you could do the same too. You might not like yourself for it, but that doesn’t mean you don’t know the line – and you fall and crawl and break and you take and you turn it into, honestly you promised me I’m never gonna find you fake it. No no no.


Now Jennifer Hudson needs the same. It’s all fine and good that she’s a size 6 or whatever. But someone with her profile, such a high profile, needs at least One Song. Something I can remember. Agree or disagree?
