“Earlier in my career I was just a soloist singing other people’s songs,” Hudson explains. “Now I really want to be an artist. I want to lift the people up, have fun, create a moment. I have my own visions that I want to bring to life. People think I sit in church all day or stay at home and stare at my Oscar. It’s like I’m a nun or the president or something. I realized that people don’t really know who I am. It just feels like it’s time to take the training wheels off, you know? Let them see me.”

And according to the mag, she’s done just that with her new record. Here’s what they say:

The record features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, and Babyface, and shows off a markedly different side of Hudson’s personality. Among the tracks is a song called “Whatever Makes You Happy,” an empowerment anthem in which she invites everyone to be themselves, with a very Jenniferized refrain: “We don’t give a sh-t / We don’t EVEN give a sh-t!” (“There will be a clean version for the kids,” she offers.) More than anything, these songs seem to provide Hudson the chance to finally be herself—something that, despite the fact that everyone feels like they know her, has apparently been a problem.
