Jennifer Hudson and Common might be a thing. A romantic thing. According to The Daily Mail, the pair were papped together on Sunday, when Common picked J.Hud up after filming her talk show in Burbank. They were seen getting into his car together and driving away. Now, there’s no guarantee these two were headed to a wedding chapel or a sex bed, because, apparently, they’ve been friends for years (see: the header pic from waaay back in 2014). But I’m gonna guess they are seeing each other, cuz if there’s one thing Common loves, it’s a famous girlfriend (Erykah Badu, Taraji P. Henson, Serena Williams, Angela Rye, and Tiffany Haddish).
When A Strange Loop took home the Tony award for Best Musical at last night’s Tony Awards, Jennifer Hudson became the 17th quadruple threat to earn the highly coveted PMTAOEE, better known as the Philip Michael Thomas Award for Overall Excellence in Entertainment, even better known as the EGOT. And she didn’t even have to break a sweat or unhinge her jaw for it! Jennifer won her Tony as a producer of the Pulitzer Prize-winning show and shares the Tony with RuPaul Charles, Don Cheadle, Alan Cumming, Ilana Glazer, Mindy Kaling, and Billy Porter among others. But thanks to her 2021 Daytime Emmy for an animated short called Baba Yaga, she was able to close the loop and put a PeriodT! On her EGO status.
If this year’s Golden Globes flop is any indication, big glitzy awards shows might not be as important as they once were. That opens the door to just about any old body to swoop in and declare they’ve predicted the Oscars. W Magazine has just published their annual Best Performances issue and unlike the GGs, they were actually able to get all the big-name celebrities into hair and makeup, including Oscar-hungry Lady Gaga. So you better believe she was ready for her close-up when W Magazine called!
It seems that Jennifer Hudson thinks that Cats wasn’t a psychedelic vacation to a Bizzaro furry hellscape. Instead, JHud suggested that the movie which critics hated and lost millions was simply ahead of its time. Jennifer thinks one day the “misunderstood” Cats will be seen “differently,” like many a cult classic. If she’s thinking a “cult of inhuman furries,” then sure.
Open Post: Hosted By Mariah Carey’s New Video For “Oh Santa!” (Featuring Jennifer Hudson And Ariana Grande)
When I read that Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, and Jennifer Hudson did a Christmas song together for Mariah’s AppleTV+ Christmas special, Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special, I thought to myself, “We better prepare.” Because the sound of those three women hitting their high-notes, runs and shouts at the same time? It would shake the planet loose from our orbit around the sun! Luckily such a catastrophe was avoided because they chose to keep the whistle notes and “Hey-eeyay-eeyay-yay-yay-eeyaAYAY-YAY-YAYYYYYYYYYYYs” to a minimum.

No need for your nightmares to travel in your brain all the from the theater to your bed!
