Jennifer Hudson: Simon's Nice, But I'm Scared of Howard Stern!

Jennifer Hudson: Simon's nice, but I'm scared of Howard Stern! The diva admits she's afraid of the new America's Got Talent judge.

She could handle Simon Cowell, but there's another sharp-tongued media personality that has Jennifer Hudson shaking with nerves.
When asked by TMZ how she feels Howard Stern will do as a judge on America's Got Talent, she responded candidly, "I don't know what he's gonna do, I'm scared of Howard!"
Unlike many of her fellow American Idol contestants, however, Hudson had only nice things to say about Simon Cowell (who left Idol to start his own competition series, The X Factor). "He says what he means, he's not mean at all," she clarified. Don't think the hundreds of AI  hopefuls who didn't go on to win Oscars would feel the same way, though. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
