American Idol winner  and star of NBC’s The Biggest Loser, Ruben Studdard is currently on tour with Patti Labelle and Frankie Beverly and Maze and he says it’s just where he wants to be.

“I can’t believe I’m out on tour with two living legends,” Studdard says. “It’s been really, really great.

Given Labelle’s reputation for good cooking, youu’d think that Studdard, who’s lost over 100 pounds  would be careful around her, but he says Labelle is not cooking on the road – at least, not yet.

“One scoop of macaroni and cheese won’t kill me,” he says. “I lost a lot of weight but I’m still fat. I’m still a big boy. I’m still shirttail out,” Studdard says.

Studdard will be heading down to Florida with Jennifer Hudson, with whom he shares a birthday, to join the Fantastic Voyage 2015.  That will make a trio of American Idol album on board as Fantasia will be there, too.

 Since all have lost weight since they debuted on Idol, Studdard says they can help each other avoid the cruise’s well-stocked Midnight Buffett.

“It’s going to be a groove. I have fun every time I come on your cruise,” Studdard says.
