Jennifer Hudson, a real American Idol


I’d like to take some time out of the political thing to show some luv to a truly beautiful and dynamic sistah:  Jennifer Hudson.  I am not really an American Idol fan.  However, everything has its purpose and part of Idol’s purpose was to highlight this sistah’s tremendous talent and appeal.  What a blessing she is.  Not only is she mega talented and beautiful, she is real.  Beside “Keepin’ it Real” in the dictionary of black vernacular, should be a picture of this sistah. 

She wouldn’t make the cut on Tyra’s top model show, but she is beautiful and she loves herself, is comfortable with who and what she is, and is grateful to God for his many blessings.  As a brotha who sometimes feels ugly and unloved, I can appreciate the way sistahs must feel when they are shunted aside for somebody lighter and whiter.

Little girls all over America can look to her as a role model for how to properly carry themselves when others say they are ugly, unworthy, and lacking in talent.  Her unexpected success is a testament to her fortitude and her God given talent.  I couldn’t be happier even if she were my personal friend.  Jennifer Hudson, although she didn’t win the title, is to me a real American Idol.

  1. There have been a few contestants throughout the history of American Idol who refused to play the “Pretty and polite” game, and I applaud them for it.

    My wife and I saw Dreamgirls the weekend it came out, and she was fantastic – a natural. I can’t wait to see what she does next.

    I’m so happy for Jennifer Hudson. It’s definitely a feel-good story, and I hope Clive Davis does right by her.

  3. Dude, I am an official male groupie of Jennifer Hudson. Never saw it coming either. She is real and humble and I hope she stays that way.

    I want to see her grow, grow, grow to prove all of her detractors wrong.

    I don’t know what planet some brothers are from, but Jennifer Hudson, Serena Williams, et. al. would top my list of wanting to tap that azz.

    You can keep Tyra Banks, Beyonce, Halle Berry and all those other wannabe Barbie-dolls.

    Sir-Mix-A-Lot speaks for a lot of us.
