This has definitely become

This has definitely become the haters blog, for the most part. Here we have seen some of the most fabulous photos of J-Hud and they are Fierce!! So, why are some people talking ish about her photos being airbrushed and throwing other shade @ her? Almost all pics you see in print magazine is airbrushed! This has become an industry standard;especially since alot of people have tatoos, scars, and abnormalities that many do not want to be shown in any advertisement. Why? because some people like you will be talking about that ish, Like. Um...Ewwww,look at that scar on her face or eww..Is that a birthmark? Or,ewww why does she have that ugly tatoo on his or her arm? How do you think they hide it? Someone commmented saying everyone is on a "sympathy tour" with Jennifer. Umm. hello? Pause for a moment and think about this: How would you feel if someone took out members of your family like your Mother, Brother, and Nephew? As humans beings, we are to honor and cherish lives. Life is a blessing from God. When someone is tragically robbed of life, you do not think we, as human beings should not show sympathy towards that person? What is wrong with supporting that person and showing that we care and sympathize with that person? Have we become so numb that we can not hug another person who has lost the life of a loved one? How callous and cold-blooded is that? Jennifer, by the way, did not get to this point in her career based upon people having sympathy for her! She arrived based upon sheer talent and having a powerful presence. She is a gifted singer, a poised and serious actress, and has a beautiful spirit about her. What a beautiful, young, black and fabulous Diva!!! She deserves all the accolades. Why? because she earned them. PERIOD. And may God bless her for all that she has been through! Work it out then, Ms. Hudson!

LET THE TRUTH B TOLD:

LET THE TRUTH B TOLD: Boring,,,,,Just like her concert…..Everyones on a sympathy tour with this young lady…She can sing but she yells to much when she sing and the concerts are too much like church….. So why did you go? and stop with the sympathy crap, were the Oscars sympathy because that happened before her family tragedy. Also it's not like her album suddenly jumped to #1 so how is it sympathy. The girl is old school talent and there are some people who still appreciate that.

AmericanHaters Suck: Ever

AmericanHaters Suck: Ever notice how the american haters never say anything negative about our street tough city girls like Jennifer, Keyshia, Mary J, etc. They always go after our sweet country girls like Bey, Cici, etc. Cowards only go after people they THINK they can beat, but they’re dead wrong, because our country girls can kick butt with the best of them. People are crazy, everybody who has appeared on this blog has had negative things said about them. Everybody has different opinions. You are so far off with this statement it is hilarious. Why would anybody be scared to say something about Keisha Cole behind a computer? Also I would think people would be more weary about saying bad stuff about Beyonce because of her crazy father. You are a crazy Beyonce stan that just had to find a way to incorporate her into this psot. Lastly, J-HUD is one of the classiest girls out there and does not strike me as a tough-city girl.

Went to her concert last

Went to her concert last night. Her voice is amazing. I have never heard anything of this quality, Whitney Houston watch out! The concert was awesome and definately worth the money. JENNIFER IS DEFINATELY 6 TO 7 MONTHS PREGNANT. SHE COULD NOT CLOSE HER JACKET, WHICH SHE USED TO COVER HER BELLY. LOL But, she is beautiful in person as well. She is also alot smaller than she appears online. The pictures above shows her real size, but with a baby belly. I would say it is a boy. lol She is carrying very high. Jennifer is the business. I love her! Pay the money for the concert it is worth it!!!!

The green manor has a great country style buffet. I mean the best soul food you will taste in a long time. It's like they have a black grandma in the back cooking up the food!It has a old feel to it. The home was owned by a white doctor and he sold it to some old white ladies that run it now. If your ever in Ga, I highly recommand you eat there. Jennifer looks great, I truely think she is a beautiful sistah even with teh extra pounds.

Are you serious? Jennifer Hudson, while she may be from Chicago (or whatever big city), doesn't even portray "street tough city girl." Jennifer looks beautiful and Keyshia, Mary J, Bey, and Cici are all beautiful, as well. Nevertheless, anyone can have a bad day and take a bad photo and get called out on it. I seriously doubt the decision whether to make a negative comment has to do with whether one is "city" or "country."

So true.. but i think it has nothing to do with city and country . lol. Its more than that, its deeper. Anywho. JHud looks nice in the car picture but she's so below average that i'm just bored with her look. She does not pop! she's not memorable .. wait, who was i talking about again ? lololol

Lil mama: You are such a

Lil mama: You are such a nitwit...I am a nobody...yet you commented to a nobody...you are really stupid. And if I am a hater, it would be toward Derek Blanks...As I said in my post, Jennifer Hudson looks great...but that is because we know how she looks, without that stylized glamour shot looking photoshoot. I was saying that all his shoots look the same...no originality at all. But that is just me. For you to think that I was talking about Jennifer makes me think that maybe you secretly "hater" her. Anyway, you are dumb, your comment was ignorant and you would never know me because I don't run in circles with nitwits...

Zee: I think it’ a bit

Zee: I think it’ a bit inappropriate for her to been in the back of thar car, in the funeral ensemble and in the church given her tragedy. The shots look cute though:/ That's a big of a stretch, isn't it? It looks like you're grasping at straws with your tongue in cheek comment. The pictures are fabulous and I'm confident that she would have let the photographer, her agent or manager know if she was uncomfortable with any of it. Just let it go...
