Oscar and Grammy? I have sympathy for Ms. Hudson's loss but that's just straight up ghetto.

I love me some J-Hud. I am so glad to see her happy and in a good place. She is an inspiration for those who have suffered tragedies. I have had my share and it is my faith that keeps me happy and strong. It's evident that, that is the case with J-Hud. She's in my daily prayers.

It's obscene to talk about who will receive the biggest chunk of "Slumdog Millionaire" profits when two of its young stars are still in squalor.
