Is JHud throwing the ultimate shade after just partying it up with the Knowles crew for Mama Tina’ birthday bash??
Jennifer Hudson Says Singing About Sex And Drinking In The Club Is Overrated
Former ‘Dreamgirls‘ Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce seem to have become friendly over the years despite rumors of beef, but JHud is stirring the pot with a new Huffington Post interview that took place just before her recent NYC performance a few days before the Grammys.
She first opened up about her new album, just recently having her first alcoholic drink and other things before venturing into the wonderful world of shade. Check out a few excerpts from the interview below:

You have a new album coming out soon. What can we expect from it?
I think it’s going to come out in the spring, there’s no official date yet. We’re literally still in the studio recording, I was just there a day ago. But the single’s out, it’s called “I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel),” and the video is going to be released on the 23rd of January and it’s a different side of me. I’m not going to say I discovered anything, but I’m introducing a new side of me.
Is it your fierce side?
It is. I call her Jones. That’s Jones, that’s not Jennifer. It’s so different, it’s really cool, and the music is, too. I love the energy. I got to work with Timbaland, and Pharrell, and R. Kelly.
You surprised fans when you told Chelsea Handler in October that you’ve been sober your entire life. Do you really not drink?
Let me tell you something. No, I don’t! I’ve never had a drink in my life, but I got a little story for you that just literally happened to me. I was performing at a private event, it was a wedding. One of the groom’s kids ran up on the stage and she had a drink. I thought it was my drink that they sent on stage for me. It turns out to be her alcoholic beverage. And I was like, what is this?
Turns out I had my first drink, unfortunately.
A final question for Jennifer about who or what she thinks is overrated in music took this semi-interesting questionnaire from the norm to the shady. Peep her un-filtered response full of not-so-subliminal shots that seemed to be directed at Mrs. Carter on the flip.
Maybe the rivalry between these two songstresses isn’t so “friendly,” or maybe JHud just had some
shade things to get off of her chest. Either way, she dropped some pretty big hints that she thinks Beyonce…..and her latest round of hits….are overrated.
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Probably not that guilty. Probably shopping, chocolate. Love, love, love, love chocolate. This past holiday season all I did was eat chocolate chip cookies that I would bake for my son. I don’t really do much.
What or who is overrated right now?
Girl, I can’t. Ooooh … Singing about the same old things in music is so overrated. Sex, drinkin’, the club. Okay, especially sex. Like, we [are] grownups, we ain’t got over that, like, really? Ain’t you too old for that kind of thing? Can you talk about something else? I get annoyed with those things.
But I can’t answer the last question, ohhh though I want to.
While JHud made sure not to mention any names, it’s not hard at all to read between the lines on this one. Do you think she has a point about her picks for what/who is overrated….or is she just being a hater?
