First came Alicia Keys with her bowl cut, then Beyonce with her pixie hairstyle, and now Jennifer Hudson has become the latest celebrity to join the list of famous women chopping off their long locks. While promoting her upcoming Black Nativity film, the singer explained what inspired her new ‘do.
“I wanted a change, something different. It’s like, ‘OK, it’s a new day, come on let’s switch it up a bit,'” Hudson says during an interview with Hip Hollywood. “I was just over the bangs and the curls on the side and I was like, ‘I’m going to scream right now.’ And I figured if I was going to go short, you gotta go all the way. If you’re gonna go there, let’s go all the way. So I did.”
While many fans have responded positively to her new hairstyle, Hudson reveals her 4-year-old son, David, is still adjusting to her new appearance.
“He doesn’t like it yet. He’s like, ‘Mommy, your hair looks funny. It looks funny.’ He’s not used to change yet,” she says.
In other news, Hudson has released the vibrant lyric video for her new single, “I Can’t Describe (the Way I Feel)” featuring T.I., which was posted on her YouTube page.
