Jennifer Kate Hudson’s journey from American Idol finalist to Academy Award and Grammy Award winner shows that coming in first isn’t always best.
Born September 12, 1981, her early exit from Idol in 2004 didn’t slow her down at all. She subsequently broke into the worlds of acting, modeling and now parenthood.
After a tragic 2008, things are looking up. Last August she and fiance David Otunga (aka Punk from I Love New York Season 2) welcomed their son, David, into the world.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. (Shhhh… I have to whisper because I’m in class right now. It’s a session on typography/fonts — an obsession of mine. Did you know that Arial is a Microsoft-created copy of Helvetica they commissioned in the 1980s to avoid having to pay a license to use Helvetica? Weird, huh?)
