Is there anything Kate Hudson can't do?

The Deepwater Horizon actress revealed Tuesday that in addition to making movies and designing an athleisure collection, she plans to make an album. "I'd love to do a record," she confessed to Jimmy Fallon on NBC's The Tonight Show. Hudson has music in her blood, thanks to her father, singer Bill Hudson (from whom she's estranged), and her mother, dancer-turned-actress Goldie Hawn. And Kate—who broke out in 2000's Almost Famous—even welcomed two sons of her own with rockers: the Black Crowes' Chris Robinson and Muse's Matthew Bellamy.

Understandably, Kate has some reservations about putting herself out there. "I've always been scared of making music, because I like authentic [songs]. I like music that feels really honest. I love pop music! But I write music and it's super depressing," said Kate, who inherited Goldie's bubbly attitude. "I just kind of feel like it'd be like, 'Oh, Kate's gonna do—whoa! What is that?'"

But Kate isn't one to let fear stop her. "I want to do it. I think I'm just going to do it for the sake of doing it and see how it turns out. Why not? That's kind of how I feel," she told Jimmy. "I'm old enough now where it doesn't really matter anymore. Music is my life and it's my first love."

During a commercial break, Kate performed En Vogue's "Hold On," backed by Jimmy and The Roots. "They were, like, my girls," she said of the R&B group. "I was, like, obsessed with them!"
