It Ain't

Finger-Lickin' Good

3/22/2007 7:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Jennifer Hudson was drop-kicked by Starbucks after her agent made some crazy demands over a performance -- but Jennifer could be the victim.

Sources say Hudson was slated to perform yesterday at the Starbucks annual shareholders meeting in Seattle. But then the demands started. Among them -- five town cars for herself, hair and makeup artists, security and her assistant. But wait, there's more. Humidifiers were part of the backstage demands.

But the final straw came when Hudson's William Morris agent notified Starbucks: Hudson would need baked CHICKEN WINGS at 10:00 AM.

We're told at that point, Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz had enough and pulled the plug because he didn't like the way the agent was dealing with his people.

But we've learned Hudson -- who has taken heat recently -- had no idea that these demands were being made. We're told her agent put together a wish list on her own, and it was sent over to Starbucks with Hudson in the dark.

William Morris had no comment.

baked chicken wings at 10am? she needs to consider 3 egg whites and half a bagel at that hour.

spin: the only way to save face is to claim she didn't know anything about it and let the manager take the blame.

either way she looks like an idiot. she is either a ghetto diva or a fool for allowing her people to use her like that.

i say the girl eats chicken in the morning and likes town cars.

I sincerely doubt Jennifer had no role in these demands...I think her agent is just trying to cover for her. She has gotten WAY too full of herself way too fast......better stop, Jennifer, or you'll fall flat fast!!!!

I doubt it that Jennifer had nothing to do with these demand's. Come on chicken wings at 10am? The agent just didn't pull that out of her ass!!!!!!!!!!! Sounds like very specific demand's. They are saying that it's just the agent to cover her snotty ass. I liked her at first but she became full of herself! Very fast I might add!!

yeah right, you know Jennifer Hudson wanted them damn chicken wings for breakfast. Her ego is probably out of this world now that she has an Oscar. I didn't even think she was that great in that movie.

Goodie Goodie for Starbucks! Bye, Bye, Jennifer. Your 15 minutes are now over. You may either go on a diet and try to reinvent yourself, or go home and add "to your thickness" and have some macaroni and cheese to go with the chicken wings. Don't forget the biscuits and in short while, you will look like Star Jones before her weight loss! American Idol sure knew what they were doing in your case. P.S. You really need to go back to school!

This woman just need to get back to earth - who she think she is anyway? An Oscar don't make you anything if you don't know how to act like a proper human being - then the fall will come soon and hard in return for attitude.....
