My fiance got an H1B visa in 2004, so we got married in my country before moved to the USA in 2004. I came with him with an H4 visa.
In June 2010 we got the Green Card through his Employer, so I got an E27 Green Card.
In February 2011 we got divorced.
Now, April 2017 (6 years later) I was thinking about applying for the Citizenship... Could my divorce after 8 months of getting the Green Card been an issue? :/
It shouldn't unless any information provided on the application is material misrepresentation of facts.

As you will be filing under the 5 year rule, ther marriage is not the focus. Whay matters includes, among other things, is whether you obtained your green card properly, have been a citizen for 5 years at time of interview, meet good moral character and physical and continuous presence requirements during the statutory period, you pass the tests, have no disqualifying convictions, and otherwise show the officer that you deserve citizenship as a matter of discretion. I would suggest at least consulting with an attorney to verify that you are otherwise eligible for citizenship and there are no lurking obstacles that you are unaware of. Good luck:
