MJB, J-Hud, Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine & More Are VH1 DIVAS+J.Lo Is GLAMOUR's Woman Of The Year

“VH1 Divas” is back.  Mary J. Blige, who just hit the stage at last night's TeenNick HALO Awards in Hollywood, is this year's honoree.  And Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine, Jennifer Hudson, and more are on the list too.

 

Deets inside on who's getting divalicious, plus cover girl Jennifer Lopez is named GLAMOUR Mag's Woman of the Year, inside....

VH1 is bringing back "VH1 Divas," which benefits the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.  And this round they're paying tribute to the cities where soul gave birth to music’s most powerful classics that inspired today’s divas. Mary J. Blige (pictured above on stage at last night's TeenNick HALO Awards), Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott, Florence + The Machine, Kelly Clarkson and Jessie J will pay homage to these cities at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom.

“VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul” will have the best singers on hand to honor the soulful cities that inspired these divas and their art. The cities honored include: Chicago, Detroit, London, Memphis and Philadelphia. Accompanied by The Roots, with Questlove as musical director, each diva will pay tribute through not only their own soul-inspired songs, but some of the greatest classics that have shaped a genre.

The show premieres Monday, December 19 at 9 PM/8c on VH1.

 

And the gorgeous Jennifer Lopez has just been named GLAMOUR Magazine's Woman of the Year. So, of course, she's rocking the December 2011 cover of the mag.  

For the L.A. cover shoot, she looks chic in a red bustier by Chloë Sevigny for Opening Ceremony, pants and a Swarovski crystal anchor necklace by Salvatore Ferragamo, a Michael Kors gold necklace, Verdura gold bracelet, two Chanel Fine Jewelry gold, black onyx, and diamond bracelets, a Lorraine Schwartz white gold diamond bracelet, a Verdura gold, platinum, and diamond wide link bracelet and a Pomellato rose gold and diamond bracelet. I

And for the cute inside-pic, she wears a Salvatore Ferragamo bandeau top, an Enza Costa tank and a Chris Benz skirt.

In the issue, veteran actress and Jenny's former co-star Jane Fonda interviews the newly single singer-actress about life, love and learning from her biggest year yet.

Here's a few highlights:

On the possibility of a new relationship out of the public eye
“I think to give something a chance, to really get to know somebody, you want to do it out of the public eye. You know the media—they want to rush everything.”

On her style
“The things I liked when I was, like, 16 and in the Bronx—jeans, cut-up T-shirts—I still like. But I’ve been exposed to so much now from traveling the world and seeing couture clothes. I used all of that when I created my new line for Kohl’s. My style has come from everything, from where I started to where I am today.”

On what she’s learned about love and relationships
“I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”
 

Glamour’s December issue is available on newsstands nationwide and digitally on November 8.  Jenny looks great.

what exactly has jennifer

what exactly has jennifer lopez done to be the woman of the year? i'm not inspired by her knack for staying in the public eye with countless divorces and now she says (after 3 failed marriages) she's Finally figured out to love herself? after a time, a woman learns her worth and comes into her own, and its usually before 40. she falls in love every time she sleeps with someone. that's what 20somethings do. time for someone to SDaSU.

She paid for the privilege

She paid for the privilege I'm sure I can I can't stand this old fake fame whore she needs to concentrate on her poor neglected children for once in her miserable life. Jennifer Garner can certainly teach her a thin or two about how to be a successful mom, wife and actress.

Why does everyone call JLO a

Why does everyone call JLO a hoe? She has only had marriages and serious relationships. You dont see her with a bunch of random dudes. Never in her career did anybody see that but people always calling her a ho. Just dont get it

Jen jumps from MAN to MAN,as

Jen jumps from MAN to MAN,as soon as one relationship ends ,she already involved with the next Guy! Take a break ,she is one of those women who NEEDS a MAN,she has EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS or DADDY ISSUES ~shrug~ The ink is not all the way DRY on her Divorce Papers and she already Parading around Bradley Cooper. Jen needs to learn to be more DISCREET! It's not what you do ,but How You Do It!

Actually the Wayans brothers

Actually the Wayans brothers started that when she was on the show In Living Color. So three failed marriages for her is just scratching the surface.

I couldn't agree with you

I couldn't agree with you more. I've never heard about her sleeping around. She just had a lot of boyfriends and husbands, not flings.

Woman of the year??? Really!

Woman of the year??? Really! J Lo is SO overrated. How about Hoe of the Decade? Ole loose coochie self. Ink ain't dry on the papers yet, and she's already screwing somebody. Who does that? Sit the fuck down and raise your kids and stop worrying about a man all the time. She's on her 3rd divorce! Something in the milk ain't clean. And who in their right mind demands that people not look you in the eyes during interviews??? FOH! Fake ass diva. On to VH-1 Divas who can never get their line-up quite right. Florence who??? Only Florence that came to mind was the one from the Jeffersons, and she don't sing. Jessie J??? Mary (my fave) and Jill definitely deserve that title, but J Hud is NOT a diva. Her problem is she THINKS she is a diva. She probably won't show up anyway.

Florence + The Machine is a

Florence + The Machine is a British alternative rock band fronted by a redheaded white woman who can SANG. She's fits. Anyway, it's a tribute to soul and everybody on that list can handle that except maybe Jessie J. This sounds like it is going to be good.
Whatever's picture

ummm why is she woman of the

ummm why is she woman of the year? and why is she on this site...Ok I know puerto rican is not a race, it's a destination and people who are made up of african and hispanic descent and normally I i take no issue with people who know that they are black saying they are clack, but this woman never has. In fact the only peurto rican women who admit their history/heritage are ones who cant get away with not doing it because there skin tone is dark. Then they say yes Identify with being Black...aka LaLa & zoe who is dominican (same situation) But anyways: The reason she's on the blog is because her name is popular and everytime you search for jlo on the internet the possibility of you ending up here on this post means potentially more money for the site, so that's why she's on here, and you cant hate the game because a black woman owns this site and everytime you click she's getting hers and to me that is the definition of YBF...Just thought I'd answer my own question

Are J LO & Beyonce TRYING to look like each other purposely?? It's out of control! Nevertheless, she looks fab, and to answer the question as to why she's on YBF, that NATURAL ass gives her a pass. That ain't nothin but African roots in that booty. carry on.

I like J.Lo but I'm so sick

I like J.Lo but I'm so sick of the politics in the entertainment industry. It's never based on your merits or hard work, it's based on who can sell covers and whose in the gossip pages. Why in the hell is she woman of the year? What has she done that was awe-inspiring? She got paid millions to judge contestants on a reality show, separated from her husband, had sub-par sales on her recent album and released a fashion line at Kohls. I'm only arguing that there is some other woman out there whose done things far more notable and should be celebrated. Beautiful photos, nonetheless.

Well, at least I've heard of

Well, at least I've heard of all of these divas. Florence+the Machine and Jessie J. aren't as well known, but they certainly have potential. Jessie's voice is really amazing! I really think these "such-and-such" of the year/decade/century titles are lame and unnecessary. It's all about who has done what lately, much like the People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive title. And based on the interview, it's just a reason to plug her new clothing line.
