While most of us were introduced to her as Penny Lane, the “band-aid” from Almost Famous, Kate Hudson didn’t always want to act. In fact, she wanted to sing.

Hudson revealed this information in the latest issue of Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine. In it, she said that her drive towards music happened to end after a few high school musicals.

Even so, Hudson has been known to bust out her vocals on occasion. On Valentine’s Day, Hudson treated her Instagram followers to a cover of “Love On The Brain,” by Rihanna.

And just this past August, a friend posted a video of Hudson taking on “Jealous” by Labrinth.

Obviously, being an actress is another career that takes a lot of hard work. But Hudson said that she’s always had drive, and wasn’t pushed into the career by her movie star mom Goldie Hawn. In her eyes, “her expectations of me were never about her,” which we think is solid parenting.

While it would have been interesting to see how Hudson would have done in the world of pop, we’re kind of glad her path lead her to acting.

Plus, releasing an album just for the heck of it is never out of the question. If she’s looking for a good angle, we’d love to hear her take on some holiday classics.
