I’m going to start this post off like everyone else and say, good GAWD almighty, Jill Scott looks freakin amazing on the cover of Essence. Now it doesn’t take alot of work to get Jill to look right, I mean the woman is gorgeous physically and in spirit but I love when a magazine takes the time to go the extra mile to make our girls look something fierce.
The James Brown biopic came out this weekend, how many of you all got a chance to see it? Jill was promoting her role as James Brown second wife DeeDee and she told the source about her role :
“‘Deedee’ understood James and accepted him, it was a part of their thing. Sometimes, he’s very passionate and loving and sometimes, the weight of being James Brown was taken out on her and she accepted it.”
We also loved the fact that she shared a little bit of how she allowed her emotions to play a part in her role as Deedee, she admitted that she does cry because crying meant release, and we couldn’t agree more. Nobody likes to cry, well not sad cry’s but we do come out on the other side feeling a sense of release and understanding. She explained it like this:
“When I’m happy. I’m sad or overwhelmed, or tired…I like to get stress off of me. Even if it’s joy-filled. I like to let it go. I like to be balanced, so sometimes I feel little overwhelmed in any particular emotion and I just let it out…or kickbox.”
Jill is so in tune with herself, and so real, she deserved one cool dynamic cover and Essence did it right. I never imagined Jill Scott blonde until I saw that cover, she reinvented herself and that is what this business is all about, we absolutely love the hair, the new body, everything. Check out the copy when you see it on news stands and let us know what you think.

I think she looks amazing. However, the blonde does not fit her complexion at all.

Bang bang….that’s dead. I’m thinking the “industry” is trying to change her image. What happen to the natural Jill Scott? I guess the blue contacts and plastic surgery will be next. #smh #lostanotherone #hipocrite
Tawanda Lck says
I’m sure she had a tummy tuck. You can’t target weight loss in one area. She would have lost more weight overall to have a middle that small and shaped.
Cam'el Giftedhands Jones says
It’s probably the corset waist shaper that so many celebs do. Everybody got in one now. Lol. #wildwildwest

Malakah Angellia Gladston says
I’m glad we’re all allowed to give our options without someone lamenting “you’re just hating”. BTW, HATE that blond mess on her head.
Shalonda Lee Hood says
No she doesn’t. Blond doesn’t look good on her either. She is too dark or the hair is too light. Take your pick.
Tammie Faulkner Taylor says
Love Jill, but that blonde hair doesn’t compliment her.

I don’t really like blonde on her but other than that she looks beautiful
Elizabeth Mcleary says
She seems to be able to wear anything…you go girl! …do it like you feel…too many haters…
So I guess her image consultants think this is the way to go to catapult her to sex symbol status. Why not, it seems to be working for other people. (rolls eyes).
Listen ladies, white women have the blonde-haired thing locked down. Europeans promote it for beauty because it’s primarily unique to them and on pale skin it can make the person look more youthful. On darker skin tones, however, not really! At least not this color blonde. Just looks unnatural and out there. Why would anyone want to do something to themselves that does not accentuate their beauty? I like it when other ethnicities bring something new to the table, instead of falling back on the same westernized beauty standards that quite honestly, are too homogenous. .
