NEW YORK (AP) — Jennifer Hudson is working on a memoir, mostly about food.

The Academy Award-winning actress and singer has a deal with Dutton for a memoir about her struggles with weight and how she dropped 80 pounds.

Dutton, an imprint of Penguin Group (USA), announced Tuesday that Hudson's book will come out in January. The memoir is currently untitled.

The 29-year-old Hudson is known for the film "Dreamgirls," for which she won an Oscar for best supporting actress. Her latest album, "I Remember Me," came out this year.
