J-Hud Could Be the New Queen of Soul

Can you smell that? That's the smoke pouring out of Beyonce's ears.

The Daily News heard from the original Queen of Soul's friends that Jennifer Hudson is the front-runner to play Aretha Franklin in the stage adaptation of her Highness' life.

I think Jen would be fabulous as a young Aretha. The problem is that she thinks so too. With the whole Oscar thing in her pocket, Jennifer is not the picture of humility these days. She definitely has talent, but I'm pretty sure the public is already sick of her.
