America's Greatest Pageant Winner

Vanessa Williams is the grandest diva to ever winner a pageant. She is so bad that when controversy about her emerged (nude photos of Williams popped up several months after she won her prestigious title) she proudly resigned and walked away from the title Miss America. The win in itself was phenomenal as the title made her the first African-American women to wear the crown. But without it she has gone on to become on of the biggest names in entertainment winning Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award nominations. What is even more amazing is her advocacy on behalf of the LGBT community. She received the "Ally for Equality Award" from the Human Rights Campaign in 2008.

She recently sat down with the guys at Advocate magazine and granted them an interview. She talks about her new album The Real Thing (which by the way is phenomenal). She talks about the weddings of her gay friends she just attended. And she talks about her exhaustion with now de-throned Ms. California Carrie Prejean. And she talks about her role as Wilhelmina on Ugly Betty.

How can you not love this woman? No matter what she does, she does it well. Singing, acting and dancing all while looking soooo good. I want to be like her when I grow up. And I think she is getting better looking as the years roll by. Get into the article here.
