Jill Scott decided to pose nude in the May issue of Allure magazine. Allure has had several notable Black actresses and singers nude in their pages, but none who fit the plus size category like Jill. It’s a tasteful picture (this is Allure magazine…not King) though sweet Jilly from Philly doesn’t look 100% comfortable.
I can’t say I blame her though. They’d have to chain me to a wall to get me out of the permanent fetal position I’d be in once I was standing there naked. I would have liked to have seen her without all the damn flowers though. All of Allure’s other nudes have been without the massive floral display…but then again, all of Allure’s other nudes were women who fit the false, self-esteem crushing, eating disorder inducing beauty standard that HollyWeird and the media at large seeks to impose on women.
You can see the picture, along with the corresponding picture of Gabrielle Union, here.
