London: American Idol star Jennifer Hudson recollects how record executive’s photoshoped her image to show her slimmer in the starting of her career.

She shed a whopping 80 pounds (36 kilograms) in recent years, released her self-titled debut record back in 2008 when she was sporting a much fuller physique, a website reported.
     
"It was like, 'Where is the rest of me?' They photoshopped me, probably to the size I am now, on that cover but we all know I was nowhere near that. Why would you photoshop that? And to me it did not send out a good message.
   
"It did not represent me. Did I not just prove that talent is enough - if I made it this far being who I am, being the size I am, the image that I am?," she said.
