If the whole singing and acting thing ever falls apart for Jennifer Hudson, you might find her working at a tattoo parlour.

The Oscar- and Grammy-winning performer was interviewed at the Grammy Museum on Saturday by Bob Santelli, the director of the museum.

At one point, he asked her what she would be doing if she wasn't able to pursue a career in singing or acting.

"I promised myself a long time ago I would use my gifts and my talents," she said.

She added that she could draw: "[I'd] be a tattoo artist. I want to get a tattoo. I would give you one if you let me."

Hudson also talked about her early musical influences and about one of the highlights of her career — being presented with a Grammy by her idol, Whitney Houston.

"Who would present me with my first Grammy, Whitney Houston herself — that almost overshadowed getting the Grammy," she said.
