USA Today talked to Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson as the new addition to ‘Sex and the City’ movie.

Tell me about your self-titled album, which comes out in September. What are the key songs: Spotlight is a pop feel, kind of clubbish. It’s a hot track. Then we have Pocketbook, which is sassy. It reminds you of Louise, because she’s loving purses. Happy Place is one of my favorites. People who know me will know what songs I had a whole lot to do with, because they’re sassy.

Did you feel like the new kid on the block on the set: It’s a family that already lived together, and they added me. They’re fierce, and I get to be fierce and fabulous with them.

New Line Cinema

On casting academy award winner Jennifer Hudson in Sex and the City: The Movie: Michael Patrick King. I had wanted him to include an African-American [character on the show] for a long time, because I recognized that African-American women would legitimately say, “Why aren’t there enough women of color [on the show]?” And I would say, “I agree. It hasn’t really reflected New York.” And Michael was always [insisting} that you can’t do token [parts]; you can’t just throw someone in there because it’s necessary. You have to find something real or it’s even worse than not getting somebody. So he wrote this part, and he said he wanted Jennifer Hudson. And I was like, “Sure, get in line! Everyone wants Jennifer Hudson.” And then she came in and read, which I couldn’t believe. And she was lovely. She’s beautiful in person. She’s gorgeous. She’s probably six inches taller than me, easily. And she was so happy to be there and so enthusiastic and couldn’t believe it.
