Ruben Studdard Has No Regrets!

Published

Ruben Studdard has been through a lot, but says he wouldn’t change a thing!

After winning season 2 of American Idol, Ruben was on his way to becoming a R&B superstar. Unfortunately, after a few hits and a Grammy nomination, things took a turn for the worst when Studdard was bombarded with financial issues, tax liens and a divorce. But through it all, Ruben says he has no regrets! “I’ve learned so much about myself through the ups and the downs. I think it’s most definitely made me a better human being,” Studdard revealed.

HipHollywood caught up with the “Velvet Teddy Bear” when he hit the Soul Train Awards red carpet looking svelte. A decade after his hit “Sorry 2004”, Studdard is no longer sorry, but instead, he’s getting healthy and looking forward to the future.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
