The rumours are true, British songbird Adele is on the cover of the March Power Issue of US Vogue magazine.

The 23-year-old sports wind-blown voluminous hair and some serious cleavage on the cover. The ‘Someone Like You’ singer is only the second plus-sized star to be put on the cover, after ‘American Idol’ alum Jennifer Hudson graced the magazine back in 2007. Kudos to Anna Wintour.

The cover is rumoured to have been shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Singer/actress Jennifer Hudson shows off her banging new figure on the cover of the December/January issue of Ebony magazine.

The ‘American Idol’ alumni strikes a pose in a strapless jewel blue dress, matching her nails, on the magazine’s Annual Power 100 issue cover.

Jennifer finally clarifies her much-criticized size-zero comment to the magazine, which she says she never made.

"I am going to finally address that size-zero thing that Joy [Behar] said on The View. Hell I wasn’t even on the show. I never said I was a size zero. I got crucified by I don’t know how many people who cussed me out because they said I’m putting out the wrong message and telling people to be a size zero. I got called every name under the sun and was told, ‘You should be ashamed of yourself for talking about being that size’. Well, honey, when I do say I’m that size, then give me that speech. I never said that.", the 30-year-old points out to Ebony.

Legendary South African freedom fighter Winnie Madikizela-Mandela is celebrating her 75th birthday today. As a special little treat — even though she is said to not be too pleased with the movie — take a look at the official poster for the upcoming film about her life ‘Winnie’.

The poster given the Hollywood glam spin features the biopic’s two lead stars, American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson, who will portray Winnie herself, and ‘Crash’ actor Terrence Howard, who will play Winnie’s ex-husband Nelson Mandela. Dressed in white and sitting on top of a vintage car, the 30-year-old actress/singer gets amorous with Howard in the woods.

Directed by Darrell Roodt, ‘Winnie’ will follow the life of the controversial politician from her childhood through her marriage to then-husband Nelson Mandela and his 27 years of incarceration. The movie is scheduled to be released in December and had its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival to mixed reviews.

R&B diva Jennifer Hudson is seductively beautiful in the May issue of Elle Magazine. The singer dons a Diane von Furstenberg beaded silk dress. 

The Oscar winner tells the magazine of performing in gay clubs when she was
younger: “In high school I was like, ‘Well, these are drag queens lip-synching, and I can really sing; why can’t I go up there?’ I would win all the talent shows”.

For their “Women in Music” issue, Elle magazine features some of the music industry’s heavyweight female acts at the moment. From legends such as Beyonce and Gwen Stefani, to incomparable divas such as Adele, Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson, to even new kids on the block Nicki Minaj, Florence Welch and Willow Smith.

But it was everyone’s favourite Swedish singer Robyn that managed to secure herself the cover of Elle’s May issue.  The 31-year old dazzles with a look of surprise on her face on the cover. Her pixie hair look so chic on the black and white cover, very Twiggy-esque. She also dons a Prada baroque motif dress.

Robyn will also take to the stage to perform during Elle’s second annual “Women in Music” event on Apirl 11. The issue hits newsstands on April 12.

If there was a controversial dress at the Oscars this year it had to be Jennifer Hudson in Versace. The actress/singer’s new body looks awesome and I understand wanting to flaunt it. But with weight loss, comes sagging boobs. The bottom part of the dress worked though and the pop of colour. So I’m 50/50 of this one.
