J Hud has lost hella weight and has been looking wicked good as far as I’m concerned. However she kept it real on how peoples attitudes and her opportunities changed once she lost all that weight. She told The Daily Mail:
Would you agree that the odds are against plus-size women in the entertainment industry?
No, because I was doing OK before. But the truth is, so many more opportunities open up when you’re on the other side, as I am now. I’d no idea what I was missing out on. It’s like a whole other world. Suddenly every designer wants to dress you. It’s like, “You look amazing! Please, choose a dress. Have a bag. And what about shoes?” I mean, wow!
Is all the flattery, not to mention the freebies, hard to resist?
My look is led by what I feel good in. If I’m not comfortable in something, I won’t wear it – no matter whose name is on the label.
To be able to sing at this level is a blessing in itself, and I got publicity for what I was doing before I dieted. But never to this extent. Now, whenever I open a magazine, I seem to see myself there. And I get to dress up every day and have someone take photos of it all. For someone who loves fashion, it’s like living the dream. Of course there are those mornings when I think, “Please don’t look at me right now!” But you just have to pull yourself together, get out there and do your job. I mean, how lucky am I to be in this position?
