Jennifer Hudson still star-struck

Powerhouse songstress Jennifer Hudson has revealed that despite her success, she still gets star-struck by her collaborators.

The ‘I Remember Me’ singer has worked with names including Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo and Beyonce, but still tried to keep herself grounded.

"I'm just like the person who lives next door or the girl you went to school with,” she told Attitude Magazine.

"Yes, OK, I work with famous people. I'm a fan of the people I work with but I've got a job to do, so excuse me!"

With such inspiring collaborations to support her, Hudson now sees herself as approaching the level of these stars she so admires.

"It's like I've sat back and watched these people but now it's my turn,” she said. “I need to do what I need to do so I can be huge, ride up there with those guys. You know what I'm saying."
