Jilly From Philly To Get Naked

Jill Scott, one of my favorite recording artists is set to take it all off for Allure Magazine’s May 2008 Naked issue. I’m excited that a mainstream magazine is featuring black women (Gabrielle Union will also pose). What’s also great is that Jill isn’t a size 2; she’s more like most women in America. I know they won’t show anything vulgar, but I hope Jill and Gabrielle have nice poses and nothing with their mouths open or looking menacing. We all know how Vogue likes to do it…

This seems like it is going to be a huge year for Jill. Not only is the song “Daydreaming” along with Lupe Fiasco running in an AT&T commercial (that’s big), she is set to star in the HBO series based on the books entitled, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith. This is so great, we get to see authentic African dress and people and not in a stereotypical way. Way to go Jill! CNN has a great behind the scenes look at Jill filming in Botswana, Africa.

 UPDATE: Urban Hoola has graciously uploaded scans of the photos in Allure Magazine. I must say I’m happy with their outcome.

SEX-y Spoilers

Oh GOD! Could the movie come out already? NYPost.com has a list of spoilers. Don’t read it if you don’t want to know anything…Oh, I can’t, I can’t. I have to tell something! Samantha doesn’t live in New York any longer. GASP!!!!!???!?!?

And in other annoying news, could this be right, the film might possibly make a debut at Cannes. Been there! Great parties, great food, fabulous people. It’s very sheshefroufroula (what is sheshefroufroula? More on that later. LOL!) but isn’t this the quintessential New York movie?? It doesn’t seem right to have a premiere anywhere else except home.
