Questions about Jennifer Hudson’s fame and celebrity are among the numbered items to be answered by potential jurors in Chicago. Jury selection is under way in the case of William Balfour, the man accused of killing three members of the Oscar winner’s family in October 2008. The process is expected to take two to three days as the court whittles down the pool to 12 seatable jurors and six alternates. Hudson herself is on the witness list and is expected to attend the trial once testimony begins. According to the “Los Angeles Times,” nine of the 66 questions for the jury pool focus on Hudson’s accomplishments which, in addition to singing and acting, include her role as a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers. Opening statements are scheduled for April 23rd. Jennifer showed off pics from her fave Holiday–Easter Sunday. She tweeted pics of her sister, Julia, and her boys’ David Otunga & David Jr.’s Easter looks.

An exclusive interview was released today with my homie over at ItsOnly Entertainment</ and Super Producer “Bangladesh” aka The Hottest Producer in the game right now. Seems every HOT ARTIST in the game wants to be 6′ Foot 7 so they can get that Amilli– Amili- Amillionaire Bangladesh Beat that will put them where they need to be #AT-THE-Bank! Check out what Bangladesh aka Shondrae Crawford said about working with Brandy on her 2/11 album :
Whatâ€™s the vibe like being in the studio with Brandy?
Sheâ€™s just real into it, intense and still got the passion about the music. She still one of the best vocalist in the game and any veteran star will tell you that.
Whatâ€™s the sound like on Brandyâ€™s 2/11 album?
The music is new and against the grain. As far as the content, she still the same. You know most females get sexier and they cloths come off and they talking about other stuff. What I appreciate about her is she stays true to herself, she gone do her. If the song is written to sexy she isnâ€™t going to do it. She wants to stay in her lane and the music is on another level. Itâ€™s a different sound of r&b, its Bangladesh beats and Brandyâ€™s vocals.
Can you describe the sound of 2/11 in one word?
Refreshing. Itâ€™s just refreshing man, if you been listening to music you havenâ€™t got any satisfaction from the music lately. If you a Brandy fan, you gone be satisfied. Its not gone be one joint or two joints, but its gone be a lot of joints on there to rock with that you gone wonder why they not on the radio.
What else can we expect from Bangladesh in 2012?
I worked with Far East Movement, Kesha, I try to do more pop extreme type things. I worked with 2 Chainz, thats like my family. I also worked with Jeremih, E-40 and Kelly Rowland. Actually iâ€™m working on my album. Itâ€™s a production based album, I got a lot of features on it. Iâ€™m actually putting out a song on Tuesday called â€œThe Operaâ€ with myself, Baby and 2 Chainz.
When that “The Opera” single is released I know my man “Bangladesh” gonna make sure people can say they heard it on Freddyo.com first!Â Right????

A man named Malik Kadeem claims he witnessed the incident, and tells TMZ that the two officers appeared to get upset when Perry didn’t roll down his window immediately after he was asked. Kadeem adds that the officers were giving the movie mogul a “hard time” until an African-American officer recognized Perry and took control of the situation. Perry has alleged that he was pulled over by police after making an illegal turn, and harassed by two white officers. READ MORE

So Amber Rose must have been so correct when she made jabs at Kim Kardashian in her interviews. You guys said she was just hating! I got to admit yall women know when we be out on the prowl! How long yall think this will last?Â Reported by my buddies at TMZ , Kanye WestÂ have been dating for roughly two weeks, but it’s a relationship 8 years in the making … TMZ has learned.
According to our sources, the two have been friends since 2004 — and have flirted on-and-off — but the timing was never right to pursue a relationship … until now.
We’re told both sides always felt a spark, but they NEVER acted inappropriately while Kanye was with Amber Rose … or while Kim was with Kris Humphries.
In fact, we’re told Kim was recently kicking around the idea of reconciling with Reggie Bush … but after hanging out with him in Miami a few weeks ago, decided the two weren’t compatible anymore.
Kim finally reconnected with Kanye in Paris when she attended his fashion show … and shortly after that, both sides decided to “give dating a shot.”
And so far, we’re told Kim has been super-impressed with the rapper … who pulled one hell of a surprise when they hit up FAO Schwarz in NYC a few days ago.
Sources say Kanye made some calls and had an entire floor of the toy store roped off so they could get a private lesson from a guy who taught them how to play “Chopsticks” on the over-sized piano featured in the movie “Big.”
Kim’s currently back in L.A. … but we’re told she plans to get her ass back to NYC as soon as possible to see him.
