R&B Singer Drops Blonde Bombshell On Essence Cover! [Photos]

Guess who has gone platinum blonde for the cover of Essence Magazine? Three hints: 1. Her debut album was a Question 2. She was in Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” 3. She plays James Brown’s wife. Answers and pics inside.

Essence Magazine

It’s Jill Scott and she is fierce in a blonde pixie-like wig for the September issue of Essence.

Jilly from Philly is promoting her role as James Brown second wife “DeeDee” in the biopic “Get On Up,” in theaters today.

In an interview with the Source, Jill says of her character, “‘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.”

When asked if she’s ever covered any of Brown’s songs, she responded “I have never covered a James Brown song. I would like to, but I don’t know which one. His jazz standards are amazing. I don’t even know if I could. That’s a big undertaking. I’m not opposed to it all.”
