I just got some thicksational news! Rumor has it our thickette Jill Scott is pregnant by her fiancee drummer Lil John. Apparently this will be Lil John’s 4th child and Jill is baby mama # 4! To be honest I could care less what number she is. It’s a blessing to have a child.Â I met Lil John at the Janet Jackson concert and he is a very nice guy. Congrats to the couple.
And check out the tattoos they got to show their love for each other.
I can’t see myself getting a tattoo on my neck but hey if she likes it I love it!
Awww shuckey duckey! Rumor has it Angie Stone is releasing a book that reveals secret details about Beyonce and Jay Z’s relationship. The book is called Life In The Shadows of A Sex Symbol and Angie briefly talked to Sister 2 Sister Magazine about how she was Beyonce’s confidante during the early years of her and Jay Z’s relationship.
I LOVE IT! Tell it all dammit! Beyonce should have kept her stank breath mouth shut! We’ll see if Matthew tries to shut the book down. I got ya back Angie just send me an early copy! ASAP!
Essence Magazine names their top fashionable thickettes and here they are in no particular order.
The media mogulâ€™s weight has fluctuated more times than we can count over the past two decades, but through it all she has always remained camera-ready. Her sophisticated image is definitely part of her star appeal.
A true soul singer to the core, Angie keeps it real and we adore her for it. We love how this silky cream top plays up her beautiful mocha skin.
The Chi-town powerhouse took the entertainment world by storm after her Oscar-winning performance in â€œDreamgirlsâ€ in 2006. Even fashion icon Andre Leon Talley has lent his stylish hand to the voluptuous beauty. In October 2008, Hudson revealed to ESSENCE, â€œI used to hate going to stores, trying on clothes. Girl, now I love me some clothes!â€
After providing sweet vocals for hip-hop royalty like Nas and Jay-Z, Michele has proven she will make her mark on the R&B world. The Long Island, New York, native told ESSENCE in October, â€œI need to flatter my hourglass shape. On curvy girls, the clothes need to fit.â€
This brickhouse from Philly might be a newbie on the music scene, but she has an unforgettable voice and a shapely silhouette to match. â€œIâ€™m not a size 0,â€ she says in the October issue of ESSENCE, â€œI celebrate my curves, and I think that makes everyone else all right with them too.â€
This â€œAmerican Idolâ€ alum, chart-topping vocalist and burgeoning model keeps her look picture-perfect in body-conscious fashions.
An ESSENCE fave, this fly Baltimore native has graced our cover five times and counting. Her unapologetic openness about her weight (in 2004 she penned the hilarious â€œSkinny Women Are Evilâ€) has made her an inspiration to women who once felt pressured to be a size 2.
Sheâ€™s one of our favorite reasons for watching the Style channel, as the frank but loving host of â€œClean House.â€ Her signature flower in the hair makes her fashion sense undeniably fly.
Â Queen Latifah
Proving that ladies are always first, this New Jersey-bred raptress-turned-actress always turns it out on the red carpet. In 2006, the Grammy winner collaborated with beauty giant CoverGirl to launch the Queen collection of cosmetics, providing more makeup options for women of color.
Weâ€™ve been in love with this actress-turned-entrepreneur ever since she first captured our hearts as the precocious toddler on â€œThe Cosby Show.â€ Unlike some other young women her age, she always keeps it classy on the red carpet.
Â Sherri Shepherd
She keeps TV audiences chuckling on two Emmy-winning showsâ€“chatting it up on â€œThe Viewâ€ or clowning on the hit sitcom â€œ30 Rock.â€ Yet her body-conscious style is no laughing matter.
â€œAmericaâ€™s Next Top Modelâ€ was never the same after Toccara Jones made her debut on the show. The Ohio native might not have won the reality series that season, but she has made tremendous strides for plus-size models and even appeared in the now-infamous all-Black Vogue Italia earlier this year.
ALSO FOR THE THICKETTES WHO THINK THERE AREN’T ANY MEN OUT THERE WHO LOVE THICKSATIONAL WOMEN. HMMMMM YOU BETTER THINK AGAIN! ESSENCE INTERVIEWED SOME MEN AND THIS IS WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US.
Â ”If you look good, you look good.Â If Jennifer Hudson walked by right now, I would be all over her. I’ve met women who are plus-size, and they are fine just because of the way they carry themselves.”
-Khalid S., 27, IT consultant
“I like ladies who are thick, shapely, well-endowed-all of that. I cannot see myself dating a woman who’s small and skinny, shaped like the Eurocentric model. Plus-size women are a visual aesthetic.”
-Khari S., 41, ? school administrator
“Thicker ladies are aware of their size and, depending on their age, have learned to embrace it. They also know what they want. Being a slim guy, I’ve found that bigger women like skinny men.”
-Chris C., 29, songwriter
“Big girls are often the aggressor, quick to cater to a man’s needs, and willing? to provide things that other girls may frown upon.”
-Calvin G., 32, legal assistant
“What I find different about plus-size ladies is how sexy, soulful and sensuous they are, like Mo’Nique or Jill Scott. When I’ve dated heavier women, they have been truly understanding, open-minded, and love to dance and do whatever it takes to maintain a healthy relationship with minimal drama.”
-Erik M., 42, actor
Uh Huh! Check out the page because some of the brothas who gave their opinions are FINE! Thickettes its our time!
I LOVE THIS SONG! RIHANNA SWAGGER IS OUT OF CONTROL AND REGARDLESS OF WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT HER SINGING, HERÂ LYRICS AND BEATS ARE HOT! I’M NOT FEELING THE FACT THAT SHE USED JUSTIN TIMBERB*TCH BUT HEY I CAN IGNORE HIS PUNK A**!
The bus driver is suppose to have someone on the bus with her to monitor the mentally challenged boy. Well he starts acting out and throws a can at her head. The bus driver stops the bus and chokes the little boy.
Now thickettes the question is………………Â what would you do if you were the bus driver?
