“Now, we gotta get down to business, Mr. Common. I’m a host so I have to ask you this question because everybody always wanna know this — are you dating anyone?” Hudson asked her guest.

Common responded, “Yes, I’m in a relationship that is with one of the most beautiful people I ever met in life. She’s smart, she loves God, she has something real down-to-earth about her, she’s talented.”

The rapper/actor went on to say he sets his standards high for the woman he chooses to date. Common also stated, “She had to have an EGOT, she had to win an Oscar on her first movie. I set my standard high. She gotta get her own talk show.”
