Jennifer Hudson has started the media blitz for the RESPECT movie where she stars as the late Aretha Franklin.

For the August Issue of Instyle, J-Hud shared her experience sitting down with the Queen of Soul to discuss the highly anticipated film.

“I remember when we first sat down, ooh, I was terrified to be at the table,” Hudson says, laughing, reminiscing about her initial conversations with Franklin. “Aretha said, ‘What? Are you shy or something?’ I said, ‘Well, I am talking to the Queen of Soul!'”

Listen to J-Hud belt out “Talk About A Child” for the publication… The girl can just flat foot sing! ( I said that in my best CL Franklin voice).

The Respect movie hits theaters August 13th.

Dior has named Yara Shahidi as the new face of it’s women’s fashion and cosmetics lines.

Yara Shahidi

The actress, who is styled by Jason Bolden never misses when she hits the red carpet…virtually or in person.

Shahidi previously worked with Dior for International Women’s Day on the design house’s Dior Stands With Women campaign. For the initiative, Shahidi appeared in portraits and videos talking about her personal journey with activism.

“I think there are many times that women — and it’s only exacerbated if you are a woman of color — tow the line between being viewed as assertive and driven or aggressive. And it is important and requires constant conversation even for me to know that my being assertive, my being driven and my being committed is not something to ever be ashamed of.”
