Jennifer Hudson looks ah-mazing on the December cover of Ebony magazine. The singer shows off that beautiful body in a blue evening gown with an incredible fit. J-Hud takes the opportunity to address her weight loss critics, particularly those who went ham after Joy Behar alleged Hudson had slimmed down to a size zero.

Back in August on The View, Behar said that while shopping she ran in to the actress and overheard the salesperson say Hudson wore a size zero. Behar also said she asked Hudson how it feels to now be in such a small size and said Hudson told her, "I feel like they’re talking to someone else.”

Seems like everyone had an opinion about her new size and she’s finally speaking out. “I am going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View,” she tells Ebony.  “Hell, I wasn’t even on the show. I never said I was a size zero. I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero. I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size.’ Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that.”

Weight loss is such a touchy issue for our coveted curvy girls, and we’re sure J-Hud would rather bask in the glow of her success, than receive drama from strangers about hitting her personal goals.
