Check out a few highlights from Miss Hudsons interview below. For more, be sure to visit The Edit!

On her Oscar:
I didnt know what the Oscars was. Where we come from, we dont know anything about that world. If you see it on TV, its like, Oh, people in fancy suits and ties. Jamie Foxx [her co-star] was like, You know youre going to win an Oscar I didnt pay him any attention. I was hired to do a job. Thats all I knew.

On her life since American Idol:
“It is so bizarre to me to say, OK, let me go email Alicia [Keys], let me go email Beyonce, let me go talk to Oprah For so long I sat and admire them; now Im among them. What I feel about people you never heard from again is that they get too caught up in the hype. They think that just getting here is making it. No, its not making it. Its like a losing-weight situation: its one thing to lose it, its another to keep it off. Well, its one thing to make it, but its another thing to stay. [That is] why you have to constantly do stuff to keep peoples attention. Its a hustle, it really is.

On her new movie Black Nativity:
I turned down I dont know how many [musicals]. What drew me to this is that its a holiday film: Im a holiday fanatic. Its uplifting we dont have enough of that in the world.
