Taraji P. Henson Covers Allure Magazine


Taraji P. Henson channeled her inner Diana Ross for the cover of Allure. The ‘Empire’ beauty loved her 70’s photo spread look. “It was very Diana Ross, very disco, Studio 54, big, big, big hair, lots of jewelry, big earrings, the stuff I like to wear. I’m a ’70s baby so I hate I missed the era of Studio 54 ’cause I would’ve had a good time. I probably would’ve been dead but it would’ve been a good time!”

Taraji looks delicious on the cover (new girl crush), just so gorgeous. I’m happy that people have taken notice of her despite the fact that she’s been on the scene for almost 20 years! She also talked about her commitment to her craft and not who she is dating. . “I always wanted to be known for my work. Not who I dated. Not who I slept with…. I have a gift, and my gift is acting. I started in the business at 26 with a kid, so I was smart enough to know reality from fantasy. I didn’t want to blur the lines. This is a job that I have to do. I cannot get caught up in it. And if I sleep with these guys, why would they want to work with me again?” Why wouldn’t they? “The conquest is up. Now I’m just used-up…” she mouths the last word, which, let’s just say, starts with a p. SNAP!
