Jill Scott: “You Need A Village” To Raise A Child

April 4th, 2013

Jill Scott Speaks Out About Child Rearing

Shame On You Lil’ John Roberts!!!

It’s been about three-years since Jill Scott’s deadbeat baby daddy bounced, after the birth of their son. Now, the extraordinary songstress – and single mother – is sticking to the philosophy “it takes a village” to raise a child.

This news comes several months after Jill checked the shameful drummer for not providing for three-year-old Jett Hamilton Roberts. Now, the ‘Beautifully Human’ singer is letting her single mom woes be known.

Here’s what Jill Scott recently said to Ebony Magazine:

“That I-can-do-it-by-myself mentality is a lie. I’m sorry if I hurt anybody’s feelings, but you cannot do it all by yourself. You need a village: some aunties, grandmoms, friends.

I couldn’t do this by myself and would be a fool to think I could. It’s challenging being a single mom … No matter what I do, I’ll never be a man. Ever. I can show Jett how to be a thinker, how to enjoy music or how to feel, and to conquer. But I cannot show him how to be a man.”

Is Jill Scott my favorite artist, because she’s both talented AND wise? Of course! That’s why while I’m blogging throughout the day, I’m listening to Jill do her thang!!!

Please. That dude is gay; he “hangs” with a former church “musician” (sissy- with a beard) from FORD MEMORIAL TEMPLE-Philly.

The musician “Omar” is now the musical director for Jay Z. Well, you know what they say about NY & those that move to big cities…????

Well, if Ms. John is not gay – “she” is DL. Hmm Wonder why no noise now that Jill has opened the door to his foolishness???

Your posting demonstrates that you really are actually savvy and
able to write attractive written content. Can you prepare
articles for other individuals? I possibly could reimburse you for the work (hourly, per blog, .etc).

jill scott can sing but don’t feel sorry for her she chose to have a child that’s her.

she can afford it.

but then again she makes songs about sleepiong with married men and was asking fans should she consider an open relationship.

plus she used to roll with that muslim sect goddesses of the earth along with queen latifah, and erykah badu.

Okay, this article is total BS!!! I literally JUST finished reading the article from which this website quotes Ms. Scott and calling out her son’s father for being a deadbeat dad is not at all what she is doing. It is incredible to me how out of context you took this one quote and how all of these mindless peons soaked it up and began a salacious attack of Jill’s character. By no means is she perfect. And I agree that if she didn’t want to raise a child alone, she could have taken other non-failproof steps to help her achieve that goal. But you, author, should be absolutely ASHAMED of mischaracterizing her words in the way you did! Smh!

but again…this whole Black man / woman / family disarray traces all the way back to SLAVERY…so there’s multiple factors at play that we have to point out and deal with.
