There's no denying that Jennifer Hudson is having the time of her life.

The singer recently performed at the White House for Michelle Obama's 50th birthday party and is headed to the Grammy Awards this weekend.

E! News caught up with the star ahead of her much-anticipated performance at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy bash on Saturday, Jan. 25.

So how is Jennifer able to keep track of her star-studded schedule lately (and stay grounded)?

"You know what, I guess it's just a part of my life," she told us. "It's always surreal and always new and never gets old."

She added, "I don't know what else to say. It's like, OK, I'm going to go to the White House for Michelle Obama's birthday, then I'm going to go to Clive Davis' party…Where am I right now?"

Jennifer also opened up about how she's embraced her thirties and feels on top of the world.

"I love the thirties. I'm like, now I got the hang of it and being settled with myself and embracing it," she explained.

"I love the space that I'm in." It shows!

J.Hud is putting the finishing touches on her upcoming album, which has no official release date as of yet.

She told Huffington Post that similar to Beyoncé's Sasha Fierce, she has her own sexy alter ego named Jones.

But don't expect Jones (or Jennifer) to sing about anything trite on her new tracks.

"Singing about the same old things in music is so overrated," she told the site. "Sex, drinkin', the club. OK, especially sex. Like, we [are] grownups, we ain't got over that, like, really? Ain't you too old for that kind of thing? Can you talk about something else? I get annoyed with those things."
