Make no mistake, powerhouse singer and Academy-Award winning actress Jennifer Hudson might bring you to your feet with a dramatic song; or get your full attention with a stirring monologue, but girlfriend has another talent: she knows how to get her point across using very few words. There is no ambiguity in the command: “Go sit down!” or even “Get your ass off of Twitter, David!”
In her sit-down interview with Hot 97′s Angie Martinez, Hudson chats it up about several things: The new buzz about why her fiancé David Otunga showed up to her recent Hollywood Walk of Fame event wearing what looked like a wedding band, and his recent Twitter beef with Wale, where she says she straight out had to tell David to sit his butt down and get off Twitter the night it happened.
Here’s some highlights from the interview:
On whether or not she’s secretly married
No, no. That’s a secret I don’t know nothing about. But the funny thing is, people are like, ‘When are you getting married?’ Then the next day, ‘You are married.’ And then, ‘How’s your husband?’ Y’all done married us off anyway so…
On why David was wearing a ring at the ceremony
David is a little different. Let me explain. He wanted to have an engagement ring, too. So, for his birthday or something, I don’t remember, I got him a ring for his birthday gift. David is the more sentimental one. Like he remembers every date, down to the time. ‘This is exactly such and such, such and such when we did…’ Valentine’s Day, you can’t even get through the house because he’s got all type of decorations, so he wanted to have his own ring. [He was like,] ‘Everyone knows you’re taken but no one knows I’m taken,’ and so that’s where his ring came from.
On if David really tweeted that Rihanna overshadowed Wale on his own song to Wale
David. I don’t know what that was but yes I think he did. David, get your a– off of Twitter, David. Go sit down, David.
On what she said to David after she learned about his Twitter beef with Wale
‘David get off of Twitter. What are you doing? I have to work with these people. Get off of Twitter.’ That’s what I said. What else can I say? Sometimes when you call people they answer. What more can I tell you.[…]I don’t know what to say but ‘David, get off of Twitter. Leave folks alone, okay?’ I don’t think he really thought they were paying attention to him. [He said] ‘But I didn’t mean that!’ It’s like, ‘David, get off Twitter. Leave it alone. Knock it off.’ Yes, he’s still on Twitter, but he thinks he’s his WWE character. He’s a superhero, you better check it. He thinks he’s the Incredible Hulk.
On getting an Oscar and her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
To me it’s kind of the same feeling. Both of them is something you don’t really think about, dream about. It doesn’t happen to you. You don’t imagine it. When they called me to tell me they were giving me a star I was like, ‘What? What kind of star? What star are you talking about? Me?’ It’s crazy.
Jennifer, who looks adorable with her new, short, pixie cut, says her Hollywood Walk-of-Fame star is right next to Adam Sandler’s on Hollywood and Vine, in front of the W Hotel.
She adds that it’s “Right in the front. It’s a big spot, too.”
