Jennifer Hudson featured on Friday’s “20/20” and the songstress, whose sophomore album ‘I Remember Me’ hits shelves tomorrow, spoke about her journey from singing in church at the age of seven to her Oscar-winning performance in Dreamgirls.
Jennifer, who just performed in Atlanta a few days ago (click HERE if you missed it), speaks on being booted from “American Idol” and also opens up about surviving the heartbreaking tragedy that struck her family in 2008, when her mother, brother, and nephew were murdered.
God is what I feel certain about. No matter what he’s always there—always.
I feel like that is the greatest gift that my mother—that no money, no fame, no nothing could give you at all. I could not and would not be sitting here right now this happy.
Jennifer also sheds tears of joy as she speaks about the love of her life and the joys of motherhood.

Chris Brown teames up with pop sensation Justin Bieber on one of the new tracks from his upcoming F.A.M.E. album.
The song featuring the ‘Never Say Never’ teen heartthrob is entitled “Next To You” and while working on the single, Brown had an epiphany as he watched the younger Bieber work.
Brown, 21, says that in many ways, Bieber, 17, reminds him of a young C-Breezy! His “brotherly” advice to Bieber though is to just have fun, and do the right thing in his music and in his life.
Chris shared a bit about his connection with ‘The Bieb’ during a recent radio interview, stating:
“He reminds me a lot of me when I was younger,” Chris said. “I kind of try and be the big brother and make him go the right way and have a great time.”
I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but if Selena Gomez turns up with a black eye, we’ll know why.
In related news, Chris is currently going state to state promoting F.A.M.E. by holding a series of private listening sessions. He was in Atlanta last week (click HERE if you missed it), and most recently hit up NYC.

Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas searched high & low for love during two seasons of her VH1 reality dating show ‘What Chilli Wants’ but oddly enough, she’s still without a man.
Chilli hit up SoftSheen-Carson’s “Picture Of Strength” benefit event last weekend in California to raise money for ‘A Place Called Home’, a youth safe-haven in South Central.
The TLC diva attended solo and admits that she is still seeking a long-term relationship… she’d like another child…. and now she is likely to go at it again without a “relationship” coach or cameras.
“I’m not a desperate person or insecure to the point I have to have a man to validate who I am. I don’t know. I’m in the same place,” she said.
“I’m glad I had this season,” Chilli said, of the recently concluded eight-episode second season shot last fall. “I met a lot of nice people. I’m sure most women would have more patience than me.”
So ‘what Chilli wants’ is still a bonafide mystery…. and while she may not have ended the show with a soulmate, she did get a paycheck and more public exposure than she’s gotten in years.

Polow Da Don and Mary J. Blige… oops I mean Keri Hilson were spotted at BMI’s intimate, invitation-only mixer, held to honor the Grammy Award-winning producer for his musical and humanitarian accomplishments.
Looking at the photo above, I can almost understand how The New York Post made THIS mistake.
…but I digress.
Immediately following the mixer, Keri Hilson hosted a Symmetry Live “new music” night in conjunction with Polow’s Zone 4, Inc.
The photogs always manage to catch Keri with a cup in her hand… [Sidebar: I see a liquor endorsement in her future.]
Artists featured on BMI/Zone IV’s new music “afterparty” included Lloyd, Timothy Bloom and a female artist who eerily resembled RHOA’s Lawrence Washington.

I can’t even lie, the last time I rode on a MARTA (Metro Atlanta Transit Authority) bus was during Goodie Mob’s Bus Tour for their reunion concert but I’ve heard some pretty crazy things go on every day.
Remember that SouljaGirl incident? She became somewhat of an underground icon even after it was discovered she suffered from mental illness.
You would never believe the amount of tomfoolery that occurs on the regular on Atlanta’s public transportation. Hell… I live here and I don’t believe it. But thankfully, there are those who are willing to share those moments with us through the use of current technology… i.e. cell phone video.
In a recent episode of “MARTA Bus Gone Wild”, a patron of the Metro Atlanta Transit Authority gets upset after a young women spurns his advances.
The two loudly trade insults with each other during the route, with the man proclaiming… “I can pull B*tches any day of the week… what I care about you?”
Another woman intercepts the conversation and then he goes in on her. The trio continue hurling insults even as they notice there are small children around. At some point, the man stands up and approaches one of the ladies and swings at her… then all hell breaks loose on the bus!
To their credit, other men on the bus come to the young lady’s aid and beat the breaks off the man, who is promptly thrown off the bus.
