"I have experienced so much in my life; I’ve seen the highest of the highs, the lowest of the lows, and just about everything in between but as my mother always told me, ‘Once you think you’ve seen it all, just keep on living,'" the star shared in a statement with fans.

"People from around the world have been a part of my journey from the beginning – twenty years ago – and I’m so ready to join their journey as we sit down and talk about the things that inspire and move us all.

Jennifer will launch her own talk show

The news comes after she was nominated for a SAG Award for her work in the Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, and her wins at the NAACP Image Awards for Entertainer of the Year and Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture for her work as the soul singer.

The Aretha star is also mom to 12-year-old son David Daniel and in late February she posed with him and his friends whom she affectionately referred to as "my boys."

As fans expressed shock over how tall the 12-year-old had gotten, Jennifer proclaimed herself "MamaHud" and was certainly mom goals as she shared all the fun they had at "Camp David'' in honor of her son which included attending NBA's All Star Weekend in Cleveland and even the kids getting to meet the great Shaquille O'Neal himself.
