It’s a whole new J-Hud. Jennifer Hudson shows off a sexy new image to go along with her sexy new sound in the pages of V magazine’s Music Issue. The Oscar and Grammy winner rocks a BLK DNM leather jacket, suspenders, and wet hair in the edgy Terry Richardson shoot, styled by Mel Ottenberg.
In the magazine, the 32-year-old singer talks about her upcoming ’70s-inspired album, which features production from Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, and Babyface.
Tracks include the super-soul jam “It’s Your World” featuring R. Kelly and the empowerment anthem “Whatever Makes You Happy” with lyrics such as, “We don’t give a shit / We don’t EVEN give a shit.”
“Earlier in my career I was just a soloist singing other people’s songs,” said Hudson. “Now I really want to be an artist. I want to lift the people up, have fun, create a moment. I have my own visions that I want to bring to life. People think I sit in church all day or stay at home and stare at my Oscar. It’s like I’m a nun or the president or something. I realized that people don’t really know who I am. It just feels like it’s time to take the training wheels off, you know? Let them see me.”
