The cast of Sparkle posed for the cover of the September issue of Ebony, and stars Carmen Ejogo, Jordin Sparks and Tika Sumpter are looking all kinds of fabulous. The gorgeous shades of pink, purple and fuschia popping on brown skin is giving me life. Work, ladies! I can’t wait to get my hands on this issue of Ebony and I can’t wait to see the film next weekend (although I know seeing Whitney is going to get me all misty eyed). Can you say “girls night out”? 😉

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is gracing the September cover of Essence, where she addresses the divorce rumors and controversy about her parenting. She also dishes on her new gig as ambassador for anti-human trafficing organizations.

I’m sorry, but this must be addressed. Jada’s huge cheek implants are incredibly distracting. I realize, she’s had them for a while now, but my eyes just can’t adjust. She was stunning without them, so I just can’t get over it. Why’d you do it, Jada? Why?!

Well, what do you think of these covers? Do you love them? Yay or nay?
