Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would know that just about every successful artist, from Lady Gaga to Jay-Z, to Rihanna to Kanye West, to even Beyonce, has been linked somewhat to a “super-secret society” known as the “Illuminati.”
More recently, Jennifer Hudson‘s name popped up with folks (including her own former brother-in-law) alleging that she “sacrificed” the lives of her family members, who were murdered back in 2008, to gain entry into the “club.”
Well, it sounds like J-Hud is having NONE of that! Speaking on the crazy rumors in a recent Ustream session, the R&B singer said:
“I’m so glad someone brought this Illuminati mess up because only a child of God would address it. That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard in my life. And it’s offensive because basically what? The people that are here today don’t deserve to be where they are? What, we didn’t work for it? So I find—and I hate to go there—but I find it’s those that can’t make it that would probably join Illuminati, or whoever that is, to get somewhere.”
And for the people who actually believe in all of that Illuminati nonsense, the Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter had this to say:
“Don’t listen to that type of stuff, don’t follow that stuff because those people are only luring you in to become a part of some mess like that, so know that you’re only falling victim. That’s their way of gaining [followers]. I’d advise you to stay away from it. Those who are reading it are falling into it. It could not be more untrue.” (Source)
You tell ’em Jenny!
