Beyonce Denies Feud with Jennifer Hudson, Calls Her Fat

by at . Comments

The name of the movie may be Dreamgirls - but recent rumors make it seem like a more apt title would be Jealousgirls.

But Beyoncé Knowles is trying as hard as she can to squash talk that she was jealous of her co-star throughout shooting.

"I knew that the character that I played wasn't the star," Knowles told reporters on Saturday about her Diana Ross-esque role of Deena Jones, compared to the juicier part of Effie White, portrayed by Jennifer Hudson. "She wasn't the underdog. She didn't have the struggle and the pain and the dramatic scenes that Effie had, and I was fine with that."

But Beyonce just wanted to prove herself as an actress. After all, she's already dominated the music world. As she's not afraid to tell everyone.

"I'm already a star. I already have nine Grammys. Everyone knows I can sing," Knowles said. "I did this because I wanted people to know that I can act and I can play someone so different from myself."

Okay. We can deal with conceit when it's well-earned. But what about being jealous of the former American Idol contestant?

"It's really unfortunate that everyone is saying I'm jealous of Jennifer. It hurts my heart because it's so clichéd. They're saying that I'm mad when I knew going into this that I was playing Deena," said Knowles. "Because I'm a star they just automatically assume that I'm not humble enough to sit down and take a back seat, which I am."

Did Beyonce mention she's a star yet? More so than Vin Diesel, in case you were wondering.

However, the R&B singer did admit that she would have liked to have sung Effie's song, "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going," a showstopper that, in large part, helped get Jennifer Holliday a Tony Award for best actress for the original 1981 Broadway version of Dreamgirls.

"I mean," said Knowles, "I wish I could've gained 20 pounds and played Effie."

Ohhh, snap! What's next, saying Hudson is so fat she broke her leg and gravy poured out?

Ignore bitter Beyonce, Jennifer. Keep that chin, and weight, up. We don't want you ever going Nicole Richie on us.

I think it's ashame that we have to downgrade one beautiful, talented, singer/actress to uplift another beautiful, talented singer/actress. Both ladies are amazing in their own right. After reading the comments I'm saddened that once again black stars are pitted against each other instead of celebrated.

Jennifer Hudson and Beyonce Knowles are two beautiful talented black women and I'm proud of both of them. We as a black race should encourage both young ladies and not insult either one or pit one against the other.Come on people wise up at some point.

Beyonce is ok, I think she has sold herself and really become and ugly person through this. Jennifer is amazing and gorgeous, curvy or thin. I think Jennifer looks better curvy than Beyonce does super thin. I feel sorry for Jenifer to have to go through Beyonce's melt downs and her diva like attitude. Jenifer is the better singer and actress. I'm sorry Beyonce you're not the star this time, so calm down.

Beyonce was clearly asked whether she was jealous about taking a back seat and this was her reply. Its completely justified that she calls herself a star, she is one of the most famous singers in the world! As for the weight comment that was obviously because she would have preferred to be allowed put weight on instead of having to lose it! Whoever the jealous bitch who wrote that is, she deliberately portrayed Beyonce badly. Which is pretty sad, since she is a NOBODY. I bet Beyonce and Jennifer had a great time together filming Dreamgirl's. And all you idiots who think they are reading your retarded comments, there's obviously no hope for you
