And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going Unless You Bring Me Chicken Fingers

51161133 As we already reported, Jennifer Hudson pulled in a whopping $200,000 to sing four songs---One Night Only, Love You I Do (during which time she brought up super fan Joseph Quinones to sing with her---how cool!), Dreamgirls and I Am Telling You I'm Not Going---at The Setai's swanky New Year's bash. But we got hold of her rider and found out a few more things the Oscar-winning diva requested during her stay---hot chicken wings, berry flavored Gatorade, a humidifier and a request that the air conditioning be off during her stay. Not bad, considering. After performing her set, Hudson exited stage left to the "green room," where she posed for pix with co-host Dylan McDermott and DJ Sky Nellor. After mugging for the cameras, Hudson asked a hotel staffer for a quick snack of chicken fingers and fries. Contrary to reports, we were told Hudson was hardly a diva in attitude and was gracious and delightful. I'd be so too if I got 200 grand to sing four songs.
