The Lyon brothers are here to heat up the summer!

Empire's Bryshere "Yazz" Gray, Trai Byers, and Jussie Smollett scored the cover of Essence magazine's June issue — and let's just say, it's frame-able!

The three on-screen brothers pose for the front page in all white looks, but it's uh, all the skin that abs-olutely has all our attention here.

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:

A very happy looking Beyonce is on the front of Essence magazine's July issue.

The 4 songstress also penned her own cover story and dishes on her 9 month hiatus. Bey wrote:

"I had talked about taking a vacation before, but always ended up in the studio after two weeks, so no one believed me. This time, though, I was serious. I was going to give myself a year to do the things I never get to do. Simple things like play with my nephew, pick him up from school, visit museums, go to concerts, see some Broadway shows, learn to cook a meal and spend time with my husband… Yes, I needed some relaxation, but I wanted inspiration too, from regular everyday things. They did not have to be over-the-top productions. I was looking for tiny moments that would speak to my heart and make me smile…"

We're glad you took a break, but at the same time it's nice to have you back 'bb!

Amber Riley In Essence

amber-riley-for-essence-mag-photoshoped.jpg

We love us some fierce Amber Riley. But the Glee star looked a bit overly photoshopped in a feature for Essence magazine.

In the mag’s effort to have a Glee episode devoted to Chaka Khan, the stylists dressed Amber as her icon.

And while we’re liking the overall look, we wonder where did Amber’s left knee go in the photo with the silver dress?

She looked much better in a similar sparkling silver gown last month at the Golden Globes sans photoshop.

What do U think of the shots?
