Jennifer Hudson snagged the December/January issue of Ebony magazine, and the songstress looks absolutely amazing. In the magazine, Jennifer talks about her relationship with fiancée David Otunga, her little boy, David Jr., losing weight, and the tragic shooting that changed her life forever.
During the interview, Jennifer tells Ebony that the only reason she survived the shooting that claimed the lives of her mother, brother, and nephew, was because she was on her way to see her fiancée. She remembers, “I flew out to see him; that’s why I’m still here. I’ve never said that before and I can’t believe I just said that now.”
In the cover story, J-Hud also discusses her weight. Since her dramatic weight loss, Hudson has received both praise and criticism for her new body. Some fans have used Jennifer’s weight loss as inspiration to change their own lives, while others have wondered if she’s gotten too thin. Earlier this year, the View’s Joy Behar claimed Jennifer told her she was a size zero, but the singer tells Ebony it that never happened.
I am going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View. Hell I wasn’t even on the show. I never said I was a size zero. I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero. I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size.’ Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that.
