Jennifer Hudson

Academy Award winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson shared this photo of her new hairstyle with her followers on social media.

J-Hud's short buzz haircut sparked vicious rumors that the 33-year-old mother-of-one has cancer and lost her hair due to the side effect of chemotherapy treatments.

J-Hud will be in her native Chicago today to hand out school supplies to thousands of inner city youths. Joining her will be her sister Julia Hudson whose murdered son, Julian King, would have celebrated his birthday today.

Jennifer's nephew, Julian, her mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, were shot to death during a murderous rampage by Julia's ex-boyfriend in 2008.

From Chicago Tribune:

Over 8,000 children attended the Julian D. King Gift Foundation event last year and collected everything from calculators to notebooks, according to the foundation.

“I love hearing these stories about how they felt as though they’ve been held,” Hudson told the Tribune last year. “And then to see them growing and to know they know we’re watching them. ... We’re investing in them, more than just giving them supplies, but letting them know we care. And we’re here.”

      Hate it! Ugh She doesn't have the right face for this type of cut.. Why Jen? WhY:? ugh

    • Tammie Reed

      She bores me to pieces, yawn!

    • SameoleJ

      It looks nice on her. Not everyone can pull off a cut this short. Makes we want to cut mine again.

    • Str8tUpMenace

      Head big as hell. Poor J-Hud stay losing. A bobble head and saggy mouf ain't it in these streets.

    • SummerBaby

      I read somewhere that she was going natural

    • Carla Wheeler

      She never fails to disappoint me...but what's new?

    • OpinionHated

      Saw this post on another site (not to be named) and I think it works for her.... I like it better than her original short cut which just looked like a helmet...

    • DDNY

      i agree. it looks betta than the past styles. But she is still dry. so very dry. Jen dont take me there.

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      Once she lost the weight and her good luck weave she became less relevant. Her yelling on weight watchers commercials didn't help either...

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      Ok...yeah...well...it's her hair. No comment since

    • DDNY

      hey roses!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      miss ya'll but got a car to pay for So been busy. KISSES TO ALL!

    • sunni_daze

      Does she have a hit song yet? Seem like she can't get one, even if she had a bat with a hit on the string.

    • aRoth

      Short hairstyle or "I ain't gat no edges no mo', so Beijen and facing the truth is my friend" til I figga out a way to get my sides back. I feel you Jen. I shole feel you.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      Her eyebrows, lashes, and lipcolor get a ?

    • MookieFly

      I didn't know she had so much space in her front yard. You could put a swing, a grill and a slip 'n slide on that forehead

    • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

      It has the potential to be super cute, but something about the way the sides are slicked down is not working for me.

    • aRoth

      Good for her. When you have no choice, sometimes you just have to accept the truth.

    • aRoth

      Getting mine cut next week. Shout out to the poster (I think her name was Belle - please forgive me) that pointed me to the IG page of someone in TX by the name of Khimandi. EYE am getting ALL those cuts. LOL

    • MsVAllDay

      Great job on the back to school giveaways! I love seeing black celebrities give something back to their communities. On the fence about this hair though.

    • SameoleJ

      I know it is coming......me and the clippers will be having a meeting in the ladies room and then Feria will join us to complete the threesome. LOL

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Tell folks jhud and Fantasia yell through their songs and you might get stoned. Can't sing for schit. MMM, no they can't.

    • SummerBaby

      That's the same part I dislike

    • Junkanoo

      She lacks charisma. .....

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      I like it....at least she has a good head shape...it looks gelled down are we sure the previous short cut was her hair?

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Hey Hun

    • MS PEACHES

      I did the big chop 5yrs ago. Glad I did.

    • aRoth

      That's one thing I don't want. NO CLIPPERS! I want it short, but not shaved. #tonibraxton'ish

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      is that what this is? Ok cool....I like it...I never did the big chop..just grew that mess out.

    • CookieMobster

      This Bish ain't got a forehead she got a FIVEhead

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Ok Bird...I think that whole thing is just gelled...maybe she needs a closer cut.

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      she doesn't look ill to me. I've always thought she had beautiful features, but I'm a fan so... *shrug*
      RIP to little Julian and the fam...

    • lenny

      damn i forgot all about that horrible murder of her family.... and at least jennifer is keeping that weight off, good for her

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      which cut you getting? Im stalking da page right now.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      SPeaking of hair...**ANYBODY KNOW A GOOD COLORIST IN DMV? I wanna go ombre blond.

    • Wildcat34

      She looks good. Love the makeup tone.

    • MS PEACHES

      Me no likey the sides. The Rahsheeda sides is not for everyone.

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      congrats on the new car!

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Her make up is very pretty here .... but I got nothing else on JHud

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      Same here. Some days I consider going back but I didn't get relaxers often when I was relaxed.

    • You Aint Shyt-LuhYou, B.Sweet

      Six, pretty sure she's giving Rhi a run for her money but it works for her.

    • Queen Negus

      I am loving the style bc I had the same haircut years ago when my hair fell out when I allowed someone else put in a relaxer. I am a big fan of short hair!!
      Now my hair is long down my back and no its not weave (Dee2 always think it is and run her fingers in it when I wear it down lol) and I have nothing against weave. I also have worn weave to give it fullness!!

    • Tip

      I'm not gone even lie yall....I thought she was sick 2?...But nw that I know she did this on purpose I'm like?....Sorry Jen...not feeling that one!!

    • ThomasSamoht

      @SandraRose isn't hair loss a side effect of gastric bypass???

    • Queen Negus

      If your hair grows fast like mine the shave will give your hair the natural fullness when it grows back!!

    • Queen Negus

      PS I still believe the guy who is serving time is Not the real killer. Gut instinct said he knows who and JHUD knew about it prior to the events! She tried to get her Mom out before it happened!! Prays for the victims and JHud's conscious!!

      IMO

    • Michelle Peele

      Dayum!!! LOL

    • SameoleJ

      It does- it comes back full and healthy. I can cut it short like Jennifer's and it will be pass my shoulders in less than 2 years. I like to "start from scratch", especially if I do a bleach.

    • aRoth

      Been shaved before, don't want it again.

    • side_i

      ????????????

    • aRoth

      I want all of'em. LOL But there was one with a blonde on top, light/honey blonde on the sides that I was feeling. But I'm going to chicken out and do all black. I already know it. LOL

    • aRoth

      And I stalked that page for 2 hours one day..............and an hour everyday since. LOL

    • Joe Who

      Sum peeps can pull this off n she probably could to if her forehead was not n the way

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      I despise a car note, but the peace of mind that comes with reliable transportation is worth it! enjoy it!

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      lol...cute...did you get a new car? congrats!

    • Sojourner’s Truth

      Do you prefer to be weaved up or wearing a wig? I like it. She is wearing her own hair. Stop the press.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      lol..why don't you a cute ombre?

    • aRoth

      Because all I've EVER done was black or my natural color(brown). I think jet black is sew sexxi.

    • DDNY

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      No it definitely well..blue black is sexy too.

    • Tammie Reed

    • Tammie Reed

      and just think if she didn't have a face full of makeup, horrid! LOL

    • Tammie Reed

      exactly

    • Marlaina Lauren

      Whether she's wearing her own hair or not, it's not a flattering style on her.

    • http://www.mediakraze.me/ Kristi Luv

      Whats her girlfriend's name?

    • lilli lilian

      That doesn't look like a new cut/new hairstyle to me at all. It looks like a, "my real hair is damaged, burned, broken, etc, so I'm currently in a hair repair/recovery process and I can't glue in any weave because um, that would defeat the purpose of repair/recovery, and I can't sew in any weave because um, my hair is too weak/fragile to hold a braid, and wearing a wig isn't what I feel like doing right now, so I'm just going to attempt to rock this slicked down look that so many other females who have damaged their hair have done before. I feel like if I keep my make-up bold and my outfits nice, I can get away with it." Looks like one of those "In repair mode" hairdos to me. I REFUSE to believe that is a planned out hairstyle! Who plans on having their hair cut thin and skimpy and gelled down? What's the name of that kind of style, what would I ask my stylist for? The thin and skimpy slick back? NO

    • Lenina Just Lenina

      I like it. Not flabbergasted by it or anything but it looks noice on her. Kudos.

    • Lenina Just Lenina

      ?????

    • Monday

      It looks Amber-ish. Kind if okay. Didn't know she had Cancer???

      Hope she stay safe. I wonder when did Jennifer had Cancer? The stress of loosing her family members probably caused it. I have read most cancers starts with stress

    • KayKay

      Love it…. Not on her tho.. Her hairline looks like a ultrasound

    • Starsky Willows

      its still relaxed... cant be going natural..

    • Jackie

      Isn't she apart of Stand Up For Cancer? That may explain the haircut.

    • RoniV

      Pretty face, but her first cut looked better.

    • AprilRain

      That's super nice of her to give out supplies like that, if they are in fact paid by her. As for the hair, You Go Girl!!!!

    • Saywhatnow?

      Looks like she cut it to go natural. Nothing to see here.

      She's apart of the Stand Up For Cancer movement. That may be way she cut her hair. Hopefully, she is the best of health.

      Yup and a horrible attitude. Encountered her in person once when she was fresh off of AI. Just nasty. And that was before she blew up...like a month or two after her season of Idol ended.

    • 100milesperhour

      What you said; but there was nothing wrong with her pixie cut in the inset pic. She must've done this herself after sheer frustration. Hairstyle don't make no sense.

    • Fendi

      Ain't no hair, bih.

    • iPlayToWin

      she's a virgo. most virgos will bore you to tears. the only one who rocks is beyonce.

    • Vixen

      She's probably going natural.

    • PRiNCESSgIgI

      ALL the tine I love she's from Chicago but that's IT when it comes to her & the David guy isn't ever gonna marry her UUGGHH she just OOOOOGLY?

    • Enoughsaid2020

      She probably got tired of dealing with the weaves, and wigs. It looks cute.

    • Meme81

      lol ;)

    • Meme81

      She looks so frail...I hope something isn't wrong with her. I agree with her boo David, she looks better with meat on her bones. The cut would look cute if she were thicker.

    • Meme81

      I can look at her eyes and tell there's something weighing heavy on her. What that is exactly, idk.

    • belizeanborn

      She is finally wearing her own hair. That other short style was a wig. I believe this is the first time we are seeing her real hair.Unfortunately, she does not have the face for that style. Her forehead is too big.

    • DopeRhymesYo

      She look sick ?

    • Kinggg

      Exactly #Nexttttt no shade

    • PRiNCESSgIgI

      yeap hats what I'm thinkin too ?

    • 1/8

      Jennifer is a soldier, a survivor, the true definition of a strong black woman.

      Not too many people can survive what Jennifer has been through and still have the fortitude to turn their tragedy into something positive.

      i think its cute. any woman who would step outside of the norm gets my vote. not a fan of amber rose but both have cute faces and is showcasing it by not making her hair a major factor. would bey do this? i wish i had the ball to do it.

    • Yes, I’m That Leah

      I don't like it. And, I don't like her.
