Actress Kate Hudson refuses to emulate Jennifer Lopez by becoming a singer - because she doubts anybody can be classed as a true musician if they don't commit to the craft.

The 25-year-old ALMOST FAMOUS star, married to rocker Chris Robinson, is unimpressed with the slew of actresses who take on singing careers without truly dedicating solely to music.

Hudson, whose biological father BILL HUDSON is a musician, says, "At the end of the day, are those people really musicians? If I ever did an album, I'd have to really take it seriously and stop acting for a while, go on the road.

"I wouldn't want to just be like, 'Oh, I'm an actress and here's my album.' To me, that's not what music's about."
