Jennifer Hudson received four Grammy award nominations. Her self-titled album was nominated for best R&B album, best female R&B vocal performance, best R&B song and best R&B performace by a duo or group with vocals for her duet with fellow former American Idol contestant, Fantasia.
“It’s been a childhood dream of mine to release an album, so to receive four Grammy nominations is truly a blessing,” Hudson said in a statement. “I’m extremely honoured and humbled by the nominations.”
Kanye West wants to pursue a new career path, according to the New York Times website.
“Mr. West has announced that he wants to take time off from his music career and intern at a fashion house,” said the report. “Preferably, Louis Vuitton or Raf Simons.”
West already has a men’s shoe line for Louis Vuitton, his own Past Tell clothing line and a jewelry collaboration with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.
