Jill Scott: “You Need A Village” To Raise A ChildApril 4th, 2013
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!!!
