J-Hud covers EssencePublished by Clay Cane on Thursday, May 14, 2009 at 12:00 am.
On the June 2009 issue of Essence, Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson makes her second appearance on the cover. The award-winning diva opens up for the first time about her family tragedy in an article titled “This Far By Faith.” According to Essence:
“When I’m onstage, everything kind of goes away…it’s like therapy…”
“David is very family-oriented…I love that. And he is such a gentlemen, like, I sit in the car waiting because I can’t touch the door. I am not allowed! And he is so serious and so focused, but yet, just like me, so playful. We are very similar and I just love the balance.”—Jennifer Hudson, ESSENCE (June 2009)
Jennifer Hudson was at the top of her game when the unimaginable happened last October. It was a tragedy of such epic proportions it seemed inconceivable that the Jennifer we knew—the young woman who came to embody a Hollywood fairy tale—could ever return. Here, she talks to ESSENCE’s Jeannine Amber about being back in the spotlight, the love of her life and what gives her peace.
Congrats to J-Hud for feeling comfortable enough to tell her story. I’m sure speaking her truth will inspire others. Also, J-Hud’s camp is still denying all pregnancy rumors.
