Jennifer Hudson appeared on NBC’s The Today Show in New York City on Tuesday morning to perform the all-time favorite “And I Am Telling You” as well as her latest singles, “Dangerous” and “It’s Your World,” from her new album, JHud, which will be released in September.
The usually polished and feminine 32-year-old singer displayed a totally different look as she rocked the crowd at the Rockefeller Center. She embraced urban street fashion, sporting a messy pixie hairstyle, a pair of ripped high-waist Topshop jeans, a Givenchy hoody, and a midriff-baring Topshop crop tee.

Working a whole new different look once in a while is interesting; however, this new Jennifer Hudson didn’t excite us that much. Her ensemble was kind of boring, although her “Rockstar” boots by Sergio Rossi were very edgy.
The performer’s boots are obviously inspired by leather combat boots. But to make them more stylish, they are detailed with gunmetal beads at the back, studded metal lace hooks, silver-tone gusseted size zipper fastenings, 1 inch platforms, and 4 inch stacked heels.

On a serious note, Jennifer Hudson’s half-brother, Stephen Simpson, was arrested on Tuesday afternoon — perhaps just a few hours after her performance on The Today Show — for allegedly stabbing her estranged wife’s new boyfriend. This violent incident mirrors the tragedy that happened to the singer’s family six years ago when her 57-year-old mother Darnell Donnerson, 29-year-old brother Jason, and 7-year-old nephew Julian King were murdered by the former husband of her sister Julia.
