Jennifer Hudson breaks long silence, discusses family's murder on Vh1's 'Behind the Music'

In 2004, the onetime Disney cruise-line employee from the Southside of Chicago sang her way to seventh place on American Idol; less than three years later, she was an Oscar winning, Hollywood-sweeping Dreamgirl. Then, in October of 2008, her mother, brother, and young nephew were brutally murdered by her sister's estranged husband, and she retreated entirely from the public eye, sequestering herself until February 2009, when she emerged to perform an soaring rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at Super Bowl XLII.

VH1 to launch a slew of (gasp!) buttoned-up programming. Is this a good thing?

VH1 is getting more real - and shockingly unshocking - with an across-the-board programming revamp that will include 44 new series this year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A whopping 40 percent of programming will return to the network’s original focus, music, starting with brand new Behind the Music and Storytellers episodes in June linked to Christina Aguilera’s forthcoming album Bionic.
