Kate Hudson says 'daddy issues' with estranged dad Bill Hudson are the reason she hasn't made music
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kate Hudson has admitted she originally 'rejected' her desire to explore a career in music because of her "daddy issues" with her estranged father and musician Bill Hudson. During a candid interview on 'Table for Two' with Bruce Bozzi podcast, the 43-year-old 'Almost Famous' star, said she worried about being "destroyed" if she released her songs.
Speaking on the podcast, Hudson, who is preparing for her wedding to fiancé Danny Fujikawa said, "Earlier on in my career, I thought I would definitely do music, but then Almost Famous happened," mentioning her Oscar-nominated breakout role. "But later on I kind of rejected it because I was like, 'You know what?' As you do when you're dealing with daddy issues," the Glass Onion star continued. "I don't want to connect to that part because that's my dad. That's all dad."

"If I put that out in the world and people didn't like it, it would destroy me." "If that one connection that I had to him, I failed miserably at, would be devastating to me. I wasn't ready for that," the 'How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days' star said.
The Hudson Brothers
Kate's father, along with his brothers Brett and Mark, were members of the band The Hudson Brothers. The group, who performed with the Osmonds and David Cassidy and had their own half-hour comedy series called 'The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show' from 1974 to 1975, were teen idols in the 1970s and released many hits including 'So You Are A Star,' 'Coochie Coochie Coo,' 'Help Wanted,' 'Rendezvous' and 'Lonely School Year,' reports Daily Mail.
'I love my real father too'
Bill, 73, and Goldie Hawn, 77, married in 1976 and had Oliver Hudson the same year. Kate's parents separated in 1980 a year after she was born in 1979. Hawn and her long-term partner Kurt Russell raised Hudson and Oliver. The siblings were separated from Bill for many years, and both have stated repeatedly that Russell, 71, is their father. Hudson revealed during her appearance on 'Table for Two' that as she got older and reconciled with Bill, her viewpoint on creating music changed. "I was raised by this incredible father," she stated, mentioning Russell. "And I love my real father too. I've been able to heal that."
'I've been making a record for like a year'
When in an interview on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' in December of last year, the 'Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery' actress first disclosed her intentions to release an album. "I've been making a record for like a year," Hudson stated. "Every time you're doing interviews, people are like 'Do you have any regrets?' And I'm like, 'I'm early 40s, not yet,'" reports Fox News.
