The SMASH Reality Index (S2, EP4)

Jennifer Hudson

By NineDaves and Linda Buchwald We’ve seen it happen time and time again. After years of struggling, an actor finally realizes his/her dream of making it to the Broadway stage in a breakout role. Fanboys and fangirls line up outside the theater for autographs, flooding the BroadwayWorld Message Boards and their Twitter feeds with endless praise and dreamcasting possibilities. Critics follow. The New York Times does a profile or two. Then MORE

The SMASH Reality Index (S2, EP3)


By NineDaves and Linda Buchwald There’s this very famous episode of Law and Order: Criminal Intent that’s become a cult favorite of theater fans everywhere. The plot centers around the murder of a Broadway actor, and everyone’s a suspect. The director. The understudy. The composer. The producer. You get the picture. In the end, it turns out it’s the dramaturg who did it. The sneaky, meddling, researcher was apparently trying to get a MORE

The SMASH Reality Index (S2, EP1)


By NineDaves and Linda Buchwald “We know we’ve kept you waiting / We know we’ve made you mad / But this time that we’ve spent not hate-watching SMASH was the best time we ever had.” Okay okay okay. So maybe it wasn’t the best time we ever had. Because as much as we love to shit on SMASH, we really missed it for all it’s ridiculousness. And we missed writing these goddamn recaps. So here we are, back in front of the television MORE

So the Grammys happened last night …

Jennifer Hudson

I'm not even going to try and pretend like the Grammys are worth more than a frozen dog turd because let's face it, no one takes the awards seriously anyway, so I'll just cut to the chase: Adele won everything, Bon Iver picked up a couple well-deserved awards, Amy Winehouse picked one up posthumously, and Chris Brown beat a bunch of people to win an award. Emphasis on the beat because hey, remember how Chris nearly beat a woman to death and left MORE

The Skinny on Jennifer Hudson: Her success secret!

Jennifer Hudson

I'm not trying to scam Jennifer Hudson out of book sales or anything, but you don't need to read I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down to discover the secret to her success. I'm sure it's still a good book, or whatever. JHud herself revealed the moral of the story, saying: "Take your time. Pace yourself. Make up your mind to do what you want to do, and go for it. Don't pressure yourself, and don't go by other people's MORE

Jennifer Hudson’s ‘No One Gonna Love You’ video!

Jennifer Hudson

I actually totally love Jennifer Hudson, because I think she's talented as hell, beautiful, and so far the only American Idol star to ever break out of the mold. That being said, this video is ... all kinds of wrong. Don't get me wrong, the high-class overalls are actually a killer look on her and the song is amazing, but somewhere between the product placements and the fact that she plays a woman with trust issues that are suddenly remedied by MORE

Jennifer Hudson debuts her new single!

Jennifer Hudson

Have a listen to Jennifer Hudson's brand new single, Where You At, off her upcoming highly anticipated sophomore album, I Remember Me (releasing March 22nd). I've been a fan of Ms. Hudson's since her days on American Idol, and although I was super pissed when she was booted off the show, it was probably the best thing for her! She totally blew me away in her debut film role as Effie in Dreamgirls, and then walked off with an Academy Award for her MORE
