We're talking about the Aretha Franklin biopic that's in the works, of course!
It's fab news that Jennifer Hudson really wants the role, and she's a perfect fit!
This is what that beauty of singer had to say when asked about it:
“I’ve been hearing a lot [of talk] about this lately. We met a couple of years ago actually, about I don’t know what, but if I get that opportunity I would love to do it.”
Not only that, but Hudson will be performing an Aretha song as a tribute at this year's Grammys.
Here's what she had to say about that:
"Aretha called me out of the blue last Friday and we were chatting on the phone and I told her. She was trying to get an idea of what was going on; she knows what’s going on at the Grammys. [She] has had such an influence on the music industry and me personally and everybody… and so we’re just celebrating that… and I’m just honored to be able to sing one of her songs.”
Well, bb, we know you'll do it such beautiful justice. Good luck at the Grammys! And we hope they offer you the role right after it!
What do U think about the idea of J-Hud as Aretha?
