Michael Jackson Tribute Concert

Jennifer Hudson Left Us

In the Lurch!

10/9/2011 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jennifer Hudson's no-show at the Michael Jackson tribute concert yesterday caught the show's producers completely off-guard ... especially since she was already paid to do the gig ... this according to sources close to the show.

JHud tweeted Saturday afternoon she wouldn't be doing the show -- citing "major production issues."

According to our sources, Hudson is claiming she felt the show's producers didn’t give her enough time with the music she was supposed to be singing. According to our sources, Jennifer received her music the same time as all the performers.

Our sources say JHud signed her contract and was paid in full.

A rep for Hudson confirms the reason she cancelled, but says producers "completely understood." Our sources say that's not the case at all.

Let me take a wild guess here. Diva JHud won't be returning the fee she was paid up front when she signed the contract to perform.

Yeah um......Ok. See this is when Oprah and Beyonce need to open a charm school for these crazy chicks as in (fantasia, jhud, and alicia and a whole cast of bbw and TRHW). The number one lesson should be things that are not cute. In this lesson you would learn things like dont date or have a baby by a man who is married (get your fact), or a man who was on a reality show chasing down someone who slob down flavor flave (i mean what type of disease!!), protect your bank dont be so deperate to cuff these fools, and being a mommy doesnt have time limit take your time remember as a women who has accoplished so much you need a man who can (willing) at least fit a 3rd of the bills. O and a man with multiple baby mama yeah just tell bra to keep on trucking beacuse the process of elimnation dont mean impregnate and check it out...bra got a case of the sloppies. O and if the reason your famous is beacuse you run your mouth to stir drama then that means you have NO TALENT AND YOUR FAME O METER IS RUNNING OT. Or mabe your famous for shacking up with that basketball player or mabe that one, or that one...heck you might have even pop out some babes by dude...that just means....absolutely nothing.....because chances are your not his first or his last.

I personally think Jennifer needs to get over herself. It wasn't that long ago that she was a nobody. No matter what you think of Michael, a promise is a promise, and a diva is a diva. She sure changed after her weight loss and I bet she did NOT lose all that with Weigh*****chers and not have saggy skin left over as big as that child was! She had a little "help" from a Dr., too. And, honestly, if she sings that Weigh*****chers song one more time, I'm will scream! She doesn't make music....she really doesn't. It's like she is singing her vowels in Spanish or something....and just plain hurts from her girdle being too tight..her music is not good......get over yourself, girlfriend,....you're not better than anyone else.

"Didn't she make Oprah mad a few months ago for being a no show? "


SHE DID STAND OPRAH UP. WHO DOES THAT? OPRAH WAS PISSED TOO. JENNIFER IS FULL OF HERSELF IMO. SHE'S AN OVERRATED CHURCH SINGER. SHE'S A COMPLETE PHONY AND GOT REAL LUCKY WITH THAT OSCAR. SHE GOT A SYMPATHY GRAMMY BECAUSE OF THE DEATH OF HER FAMILY. I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THIS LYING FATTIES 15 SECONDS IS UP.
