I love Jill Scott probably more than the average man/fan should but, that’s for another blog.
Hopefully, if Jill reads this she won’t think of me as being some psychotic fan that isn’t worthy of having a cup of coffee with or even a baby with but, rather as an introspective person that is voicing his opinion about something that has come across his radar.
Jill Scott has been recorded on CNN as being a very adamant non-fan of interracial relationships and yet, one of her latest and hottest videos “So Gone” features her intimately purring about her resistance-issues over a white man, a.k.a. Paul Wall. OK, he has a black wife or whatever but, does that absolve ‘her’ from the remarks she made on CNN?
Jill Scott has reportedly said that her “soul burns” every time she see a “successful black man with a white woman”.
Ok Jill. That’s real but, is it okay for you to portray a character in a video that chooses to express how badly you can’t resist this particular man? Her body was ignoring what her mind said, was it her anti-race-mixing vernacular to the white man but,
her body can’t resist his diamond-chip d***? We wonder.
My future wife has been in two publicly displayed relationships with Black men,
that didn’t turn out well…
Scott and longtime boyfriend Lyzel Williams, a graphic artist and DJ,married in 2001 in a private Hawaiian ceremony. The couple dated for seven years before they wed.
Scott wrote and recorded the song “He Loves Me (Lyzel in E Flat)” about Williams.
After six years of marriage, Scott and Williams divorced in 2007.
On June 20, 2008, at a concert in New York, Scott shared a long on-stage kiss with her drummer,
Lil’ John Roberts; the couple then told the audience that they were engaged. They expected their first child on April 25, 2009 but the baby boy, Jett Hamilton Roberts, arrived five days earlier. On June 23, 2009, Scott announced that she and Roberts had broken up.
And now she comes out with this very sexually suggestive tirade about how bad she needs this man…
A White Man…
“Don’t want this thing but she can’t let go.”
Now, for the sake of saying it, I’m not taking this performance in the video literally but, I’m wondering if emotion and deep down hurt inside of her is subliminally calling out for something that she may really want?
Or, is she suggesting it to any Black woman that is going through issues with Black men? Perhaps it has nothing to do with race at all?
To me the song is dope, the video is sexy and I’m really not mad at Jill but, as the conscious, smart and educated woman she is, I wonder what message she was trying to send by defrauding those of us that follow her?
I think Jill is willing to broaden her horizons whilst choosing a mate, maybe she’ll choose a regular guy… like me or maybe after this blog, she might want me to be So Gone…
