Who says “nice guys finish last?”
Not Jennifer Hudson.Â The former American Idol finalist may have not taken the top prize in that contest, but you’ll never see her on one of those, “Whatever happened to — ?” shows.Â Especially not this year, when her star is shooting extraordinarly high.
First, there was the Oscar for her performance in “Dreamgirls.”Â Next, she was on the cover of Vogue.Â Now she’s inked a deal with Avon to be the newest face of their Imari fragrance.Â Not bad for a girl whom Simon mercilessly criticized for one of her fashion choices during her American Idol days.
So what’s next for this lovelyÂ wunderkind?Â Aretha Franklin wants her to play her in an upcoming movie about the “Queen of Soul.”Â Wow.Â How do you top that?
I guess we’ll have to wait and see…
