Jennifer Hudson Shares Powerful Message About Gun Violence — 'It's A Scary Time No Matter Who You Are'

| Filed under: Film FlickersPolitikJennifer HudsonSad SadViolenceSpike Lee

Jennifer Hudson

Jennifer Hudson is no stranger to the very tragic problem of gun violence.

As you may know, the 34-year-old's mother, brother, and nephew were shot and killed in 2008 by her sister's former partner.

The singer and actress just tackled this very important issue in her new Spike Lee flick Chi-raq — which is about gang violence in Hudson's hometown of Chicago.

In a recent interview with W Magazine, the American Idol alum opened up about her decision to take on this very personal project. Miz Hudson admits she was hesitant at first when Lee approached her about doing the movie:

"It's like, you're asking a lot. This is reality for me. This is my life. A part of my life. And I definitely had that moment of like, ‘Are you serious?' But when I really thought about it, I understood why he came to me and I thought, ‘You know what? It's worth me telling my story so that hopefully no one else has a story like this to tell.' The film we're doing is trying to save my city, as my mother said, take care of home. So for that reason I was like, ‘Okay, I get it, it's worth doing.' But I don't think it's anything I will ever, ever revisit again."

We can imagine it was incredibly difficult to revisit something that is responsible for the deaths of so many of her loved ones.

At the end of the day, J. Hud says this film is incredibly important in light of recent attacks throughout the United States and the world:

"If we didn't have these issues, I don't think a movie like that would have needed to be made. That's the point of making it, to make people pay attention and say, ‘Guys, we have to start somewhere.' And it's not just the city of Chicago. It's everywhere. It's a bad time right now, no matter where we look. Kids can't go to school, people can't go to church, you can't go to the movies. It's like, what are we doing to ourselves? What's happening? We're acting like animals. It's unfortunate that things are this way, but it's not going to change unless we do something about it. Even in filming the movie, there were times where more and more incidents kept happening. And Spike kept writing it into the movie. Those who don't get it, it's like, how don't you get it when this is what the issue is? And if you do have a problem with it, have a solution to come along with it. What plan do you have? How do you not try? And what are we supposed to do—just kill each other? It's a scary time no matter who you are, where you go, what color you are, where you live, honey."

Wow.

It is so sad and terrifying that this is such a growing issue. We are just happy there are influencers like Hudson and Lee who are dedicated to making a change for good.

Ciara and Russell Wilson

This is just too sweet!

Ciara and Russell Wilson continued to prove they are one of the cutest couples in the game over the weekend, when the Seahawks quarterback surprised the R&B star with a star-studded surprise party for her 30th birthday.

On Saturday night, the Body Party singer got glam for a "movie premiere" and headed to the Warner Brothers lot in Burbank, where Russell was waiting for her dressed as Batman in front of the actual Batmobile from the flick Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

A source from the party said CiCi was provided a Catwoman suit and a mask to change into before being whisked away to the Batman exhibit where 100 guests — including her 17-month-old son Future Zahir dressed as Superman — were waiting.

Aww!!

According to the source, the attendees — you know, Serena Williams, Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé, and Lily Collins, just to name a few — shouted "surprise!" as the performer arrived:

"Ciara was overwhelmed with emotion and began to cry tears of joy."

Walking in to Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday, Ciara was also greeted with b-day messages from other famous friends who couldn't make it to the event, like Missy Elliot, Jennifer Hudson, Joe Jonas, Ludacris and Michael Strahan.
