J-Hud on her wedding dress:

“I decided to play designer and configure up like four dresses in one. … When you see the reveal, it’s one dress, by teh time I get to the altar it’s a whole other dress, then at the reception it’s like, ‘OK, what dress is this?'”

On her upcoming album:

“I’m far more involved. … I’m recording everything, I’m writing everything, I’m so involved.”

On her love of “Scandal”:

“I’m Olivia Pope! … I just love that she’s snatched up, she’s together. And she fixes everything.”
