Jennifer Hudson Cast as Aretha Franklin


A couple years ago there were rumors Jennifer Hudson had been cast to play Aretha Franklin in her upcoming biopic [click here if you missed that].

The rumors were absolutely true...

According to reports Clive Davis broke the news at his annual pre-Grammy party over the weekend that Jennifer Hudson had been handpicked by Aretha Franklin for the role.

Well since she sacrificed her family I guess they had to find something for her to do.

In the wake of this scandal, I Already don't want to sit and listen to this shrill voice heffa. This is what I mean by YOU ARE YOUR BRAND.

NEGATIVITY affects your bottom line.

Wonder how much they paid Ms. Franklin for her approval. There's no way she can do justice to Aretha.

Jen got that life line she needed. If the career won’t drown then let it starve at sea.

Just an observation said...

I still believe an unknown can play the part and lip sync the performances but Jennifer singing Aretha's classic songs will be cool. Aretha was a mess back in the day. I remember all the tea from listening to my mother and her girlfriends. Hope they include Glen Thurman and their short relationship.

"She got busted it I thought it was funny- Aretha Franklin"

“Girl, I can’t. Ooooh … Singing about the same old things in music is so overrated. Sex, drinkin’, the club. Okay, especially sex. Like, we [are] grownups, we ain’t got over that, like, really? Ain’t you too old for that kind of thing? Can you talk about something else?

this will flop so fast and so hard. Effie cannot do Aretha. Rather see Deborah Cox, Jazmine Sullivan, Ledisi, heck ANYBODY but those broads from Dream Girls. Thanks in advance.

@12:35 Really? - It would take several months possibly years to uncover all Beyonces lies and STDSs she got from serial cheater Jay Z.

Ask Jay Z what CATHY WHITE was about to reveal!

Defending Beyonce for what!

If you really cared about her you would have talked some sense into her after her belly folded!

Oh no honey I'm not defending Beyonce I'm just pointing out the fact that them niggas ain't perfect neither. Just like They All calling out somebody else THEY can get called out too. It works both ways.

@12:35 PM
Nice clap back

Jennifer wicked ass can slay this role. But social media has been the downfall of these celebs, now that people know what a wicked, vindictive trifling ass bitch you are, and how you treated your son's father in him giving up his career to raise your son, while you run around chasing fame. I can't and will not support your ass. If the shoe was on the other feet women would be dragging the hell out this man. Your public battles in trying to paint your son's father a decent black man as a lazy shiftless bum, makes you look crazy and trifling the kind of black woman that gives good black woman a bad name. Aretha's messy ass ain't never got no room to talk about anybody, truth is majority of these entertainer were hot mess behind the scenes, Chuck Berry was farting in folks faces, James Brown woman beater, Marvin gay a hot ass drug addled mess the whole lot of male and females were hot ass mess, so don't nobody got room to talk. This however does not detract from their immense talents and contributions. And y'all hoes leave Beyonce alone, she ain't perfect and neither is yo ass commenting on her.

@I troll it

Thank you! This strangely built weird faced how makes me sick the way she carries on..like she is soooo bomb! That award went straight to her head and she's been a BITCH every since.

She treats that man bad because she's unhappy with herself and her "decisions". It's like she s making him pay for the "sacrifices" she has had to make to be a star and YES her actions and attitude in front of the world don't help at all with the present day image of a black woman. Jennifer needs a reset BAD.

@prissa she loved her drugs AND her dildoes. I heard her and Natalie Cole were running buddies and that they would be getting high and cocking they legs up on the same table the drugs were on and pleasure themselves in front of anyone who cared to watch.
I would recommend an unauthorized biography if there is one about her. T HATS where the REAL tea is spilled. Whitney's was GOOD!
