A fuming Jennifer Hudson is demanding an apology from gossip blog Bossip after they posted an article about her struggle to land a book deal about her weight loss. They alleged that publishing agents are more interested in the 2008 slaughters of her family members than her new weight loss. The 29-year-old has been pitching the book to U.S. publishers for a reported $1 million. However, certain editors have claimed that publishing agents are reportedly hesitant to offer a deal without details of the tragic murders. This has infuriated the singer provoking her to plunge into an f-bomb curse fest on twitter. “Some things are priceless. How low can people go? I just don’t get it. Stop making up sh*t!!! Everyday I wake up I’m constantly reminded how cruel and heartless the world is. Bossip, you owe me an apology! Why would you take someone’s tragedy and build a story of nothing but lies around it? F*ck you!!!!” she wrote (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
As horrible as it is, the allegations hold some serious truth. A publisher is going to want all the controversial parts of her life in the book because they feel this is what will sell it. That is practically their job. If they are going to agree to a $1 million deal, they want an uncensored book from her. It doesn’t make it right but that’s just how the ruthless publishing industry works.
