That is, until you open the glossy for the feature!

While the boys didn't spill any deets about Season 2, the usually-private Jussie did share a lot! Seeming very grateful for the effect the show could have on anyone considering to come out of the closet, he confessed:

"If I can help someone else feel less alone, no matter what they're going through, I'm happy to have that opportunity."

He really is an inspiration, especially after so bravely opening up about his sexuality with Ellen DeGeneres back in March.

But as for the outcom? Jussie revealed:

Leona Lewis Is Lookin’ Blue At The Essence Black Women In Music Reception!

Leona Lewis chooses one wrong accessory at the Essence Black Women In Music reception!

The color blue looks soooo good on her!!

Leona Lewis hit the red carpet at Essence’s Black Women In Music Reception in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where she wore a one-shoulder royal blue frock paired with Jeffrey Campbell heels.

We only wish she hadn’t rocked the wide metallic belt, because if it wasn’t for that, her outfit would’ve been much better!

The silver shade didn't really match the rest of her ensemble, and the width of the belt didn't quite look right.

At least the talented musician’s hair and makeup were TOTES stunning, and her box clutch was chic as well!!

We really don’t get to see Emeli Sandé enough!

Luckily for us, the ferosh crooner showed up to the 5th annual Essence Black Women In Music event in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

Guess she kind of had to, being the honoree and all. LOLz!

Sparkling like the star she is, Emeli wore an embellished black frock, splitting our attention between the beading and her fantastic stems!

And instead of going the expected route with black heels, she opted for fabby, midnight blue sandals.

Emeli definitely delivered!
