Appearing on "TODAY" to discuss her new memoir, I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down, Hudson revealed that she underwent a bit of a shock when she started gaining noteriety for her singing talent as well as her weight.
Speaking of her red carpet appearances during "American Idol" early in her career, the Grammy and Oscar winner said, "I didn't define myself that way so it was, like, it was a shocking moment for me. Actually when I started on the red carpet doing 'Idol,' I had already lost 60 pounds then. By then, I was, like, a size 12. This is every woman's size. The average size. I was, like, what are you talking about? Here it is again: image, image, image, image. To me, it's talent, talent, talent, talent. At least where I come from."
Hudson also briefly commented on the Oct. 2008 murders of her mother, brother, and nephew at the hands of her brother-in-law William Baflour. Baflour, charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the case, goes to trial next month, and Hudson may be called to testify.
When asked what sustained her through the tragedy, Hudson said, "Definitely it's my faith in God and growing up -- my mother, even though she's not here now, she trained us well."
During her Oscar award acceptance speech, Hudson had referenced God and the miralces He has brought into her life. She was asked to explain what she meant during her "TODAY" appearance.
