VH1 Divas!

Last night my cousin and I headed to the VH1 Divas concert in NYC. We were wowed by great performances: Jill Scott, Mary J Blige, Ledisi (whose voice I've grown to love -- not the screaming part but her incredible range), Jennifer Hudson and more.
As Common walked by me, I was so tempted to reach out and touch, but I didn't want security to throw me out into the bitter cold so I restrained myself. Common is too sexy for himself. I have to admit that I joined the Common fan club late, because although I've always known how talented he is, I didn't fall in such deep like until "Just Wright". I think his humble demeanor makes him extra sexy!
Highlights for me: Chaka Khan (who I want to be my momma or my aunt), BoyzIIMen, who haven't lost their swag at all, and my girl Marsha Ambrosius, who did her thang on the Back2Life medley.

Mary J WORKED this white dress, as her hubby looked on in admiration just a few feet away from us.

And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit Mary!
