Multi-platinum Grammy Award winning R&B girl supergroup TLC is featured is the latest issue of V Magazine. For the spread, TionneT-BozWatkins and RozondaChilliThomas were shot by photographer Christelle De Castro and styled by Haley Wollens. The “Water Falls” singers styled in designers including DKNY, Marc Jacobs, Anne Sofie Madsen, Diane Von Furstenberg and more. Below are some excerpts: 

TLC, the four-time Grammy-winning, 65-million-albums-selling R&B girl supergroup named for members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, reclaimed the initials with the premiere of the VH1 original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story and an accompanying greatest hits collection, 20, which delivered a new single, “Meant To Be.” Written by Ne-Yo, the song, according to Thomas, “sums up the whole 20 years of the relationship between the three of us and the ongoing relationship between T-Boz and myself.” As any true pop-culture enthusiast knows, this is no small feat“.

TLC’s story is no less breathtaking than the scope of their influence. From humble Atlanta beginnings to global superstardom, the band has lived a triumphant, outrageous, often tragic tale perfectly suited to a “Behind the Music” segment. Watkins would struggle with chronic sickle cell anemia (and later be sidelined by a brain tumor). Thomas publicly endured the throes of a relationship with Usher. The group suffered an astounding bankruptcy. And then Lopes, after infamously burning down the house of her boyfriend, Atlanta Falcons football player Andre Rison, and acrimoniously challenging her bandmates to a solo album showdown, suddenly passed away, in a 2002 auto accident while on a spiritual retreat in Honduras“.

The Lady Is A Champ: Jennifer Lopez Androgynous Photo Shoot For V Magazine

The talented Jennifer Lopez traded in her expensive heels and dresses for a boxing garb for an androgynous photo shoot, in the latest issue of V Magazine. On the cover, Jenny is wearing a boxing jockstrap and white tank-top, to evoke the theme of “that around the way girl” she carried repped throughout her career. In the cover story, it focuses on Jenny’s last few “comeback” years, her ex husband Marc Anthony and their business relationship, the differences in the Latino community and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On the differences in the Latin community.

“There are so many differences in the Latin community. Someone from Mexico and someone from Puerto Rico have different foods, different traditions,” Lopez says. “There’s an education to be had. Even as I was going through the differ- ent countries, there were certain forms of music that I didn’t know about.”

On her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

“I mean, we’re parents and friends first,” she says with a smidgen of exasperation. “That will be the thread that ties us together. I don’t know if people expect it to be negative (Of course they do, Jennifer!) just because the [intimate] relation- ship didn’t work out.” The professional relationship, however, is chugging lucratively along.

 On the failure of her first fashion endeavor in the early 2000s was one of her biggest career disappointments.

“That was sad for me,” she told the New York Times last year. “I just felt like I never got a fair chance to do it right. And on top of it, I felt like I was trapped in a situation I couldn’t get out of, and my name was stamped on things that I didn’t believe in.”

Read an excerpt from Nicki’s interview below.

You just shot the music video for your next single “Moment 4 Life,” featuring Drake. What are you working on next?
We’re shooting the video with Rihanna for “Fly” this weekend. We’re going to save the world in more ways than one with the video and that’s all I can say about that… I love Ri-Ri! I mean, when she’s not grabbing my ass she’s a sweet girl.

Who are some of your favorite artists outside of hip hop?
I like everyone. I don’t listen to music based on genre. Like, I’ll hear a song and then I’ll live for that song for like months and I’ll be like, “Who the hell is that?” I listen to Taylor Swift. I like Coldplay. I listen to gospel a lot. I listen to anything that’s just beautiful music.
