What is with the wet hair thing? Are we slowly bringing this back? In any case, Jennifer Hudson, here in V Magazine brings on a load of sexy. Artfully shot by Terry Richardson, Hudson talks about coming out of her shell, and credits drag queens as her inspiration (I’m not making this up).

Pretty ironic, as drag queens are an over representation of feminine realness, so to take inspiration from a parody of something a woman is, naturally, is a bit backwards. Says Hudson:

‘I used to go to gay clubs when I was a kid. We were 16 or 17 and my best friend would pretend to be my manager,’ Jennifer admitted. ‘He’d have business cards made up and he’d negotiate for me to sing for $25 a song. I’d have these amazing drag queens style me up and down, honey.’
