Miss Jill Scott (pictured above at the Made In America Festival in her native Philly over the weekend) serves ‘diamonds on necklace, di-diamonds on my records’ teas on the October 2012 cover of Essence magazine.

After a failed first marriage, failed engagement to her baby daddy, and the end of her HBO series ‘The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,’ the neo soul diva has finally decided to stick to the rivers and the lakes that she’s used to.

“I look in the mirror and it’s like, ‘Hey, there you go. What’s up, girl?’ For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory. Tomorrow I may want a wig down to my butt and I’m gonna rock it, and the next day I may want a big Afro and I’m gonna rock that too.”

Jill Scott dishes about her television movie, Lifetime’s remake of ‘Steel Magnolias,’ and her new outlook on men in the full issue hitting stands soon.
