More Rumors

hey guys. once again i think its time to address these rumors thats been going on about me. there are 3 main ones that has been floating around and i want to address them personally so you guys can know the truth

1.) i turned down a movie role for 3 million dollars because of a nude scene and i wasnt the person getting nude. nothing about that is true. i want to do my album. and my fans have waited so patiently for me to put out an album and i appreciate everyone of you, thats why im focused on putting out my first project. and yes i will continue to still do movies. 

2.) all of the american idol stuff and burger king comments. i never said anything about if i was better at burger king i would not be there either. and yes i did say american idol was a stepping stone. which it is! i didnt mean it in a bad way. and as i said in my previous interviews american idol is a stepping stone because had it not been for them no one would of knew of a jennifer hudson to call to audition for dreamgirls! its like everything i say referring to the show gets twisted around and makes me look like im being arrogant and a "diva", since alot of people seems to have that opinion about me and that is not me at all. im not bothered by these rumors because im use to it but i do read the boards and i see my fans are upset by some of the negative rumors concerning me and that is what hurts me the most is to see people who care about me being impacted by all of this.

3.) the soul train awards show and me trying to sabotoge it by not showing up. only thing i can say to this is that i was there! and i appreciate being honored there just as much as i appreciated being honored at the all the award shows i attended. but once again im just writing this for my fans, supporters, and friends who want to know the truth. i am a person with feelings and although i have been warned that things like this would happen to me. and since i am new to this let me be the first to tell you that i have sat back not to long ago just like you guys .I read things about my favorite artist and let me tell you since im experiencing this first hand you guys cant believe everything you read because its not true. o one more thing. im grateful for all my blessings and i thank God for it everyday and no amount of fame will ever go to my head and make me think that im better than anyone because we are all equal. and as quickly as God gave everything he has given me he can take it away!

The Dreamgirls CD breaks its own record
February 19th, 2007 under Dreamgirls. [ Comments: none ]

Sony’s "Dreamgirls" soundtrack held onto No. 1 for a second week, but managed to again break the record for lowest-selling chart-topper. Disc sold 60,000 copies in the week ended Sunday, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Last week, the disc secured the top slot with sales of 66,000. Next week, a bump related to the pic’s three Golden Globes wins should push its total back up, but new competition will likely knock the disc off the top perch. Meanwhile, "B’Day" by "Dreamgirls" star Beyonce returned to the top 10, climbing five slots to No. 6 on sales of 41,000. Sales, at 17.5 million units this year, are down 16% compared to 2006.


It is like yay we are number one again, but boo we are the lowest selling number one in history again.


Who didn’t see this coming a mile away???
February 19th, 2007 under Beyonce, Dreamgirls. [ Comments: none ]

Beyoncé Knowles’ father Mathew is furious the superstar was overlooked at the Golden Globe Awards, accusing the film industry of discriminating against blacks. The singer-turned-actress failed to pick up a single nomination for her role in Dreamgirls, and – despite Golden Globe wins for African-Americans Forest Whitaker, Eddie Murphy, Prince, Jennifer Hudson and the movie itself – Knowles blames his daughter’s omission on racism. He told reporters after the ceremony on Monday, "Today is MLK’s (Martin Luther King’s) birthday and it saddens me to say that things have not changed for blacks. Working class blacks and blacks in Hollywood are still being discriminated against. We still have a long way to go."


Seriously? OMG! My friend and I were joking last week how he would say Hollywood is racist because she did not get an Oscar nom even though Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy and Dreamgirls will. It is not racism, she just wasn’t good enough.


Dreamgirls Broadway bound again?
February 19th, 2007 under Dreamgirls. [ Comments: 1 ]

"Dreamgirls," which recently received eight Academy Award nominations excluding one for Best Picture, may be headed back to the Broadway stage. Dreamgirls composer Henry Krieger told the New York Post that John Breglio — the lawyer who oversees the estate of original Dreamgirls director-choreographer Michael Bennett — will hold a meeting next month to discuss a Broadway revival of the 1981 musical. "We’re going to figure out how to do this," Krieger told the New York daily. "We think it’s time. All is good." In a written statement issued Jan. 25 Breglio said, "There’s a lot of interest in bringing Dreamgirls back to Broadway. The owners of the musical decided a year ago not to make any decision about a Broadway revival until after the film was released. As for my producing a new production of Dreamgirls, for the time being my focus is on A Chorus Line. Whether or not I want to jump into another project this soon is something I need more time to consider."


Who didn’t see that coming? I am just so over the trend show-movie-show or movie-show-movie…make it stop please!


Which former Idol contestant is jealous of Jennifer Hudson
February 19th, 2007 under American Idol 1-5, Dreamgirls. [ Comments: none ]

CLAY AIKEN made an appearance on "Good Morning America" Thursday to promote UNICEF's public awareness campaign for Child Survival 2007, and the "American Idol" runner-up also revealed which former contestant gets his vote! "I'm jealous," Clay lightheartedly replied when asked about JENNIFER HUDSON. "There was a point I was considered the most successful 'Idol' loser, but now I'm not anymore. I saw the movie ['Dreamgirls'] and she deserves the Academy Award," he added. "Now I'm going to be in second place again." The singing sensation wants to use his fame to help others, and is a dedicated advocate for children's causes, such as UNICEF's mission to provide health, education, equality and protection for children across the globe. "We want to get people involved," Clay said of his role with the organization.
