Jill Scott Covers Ebony Magazine with her son


So Miss Jill is gracing our shores for sure this time around for the Cape Town Jazz Festival! Much to the pleasure of many fans I imagine!

On a totally different topic though, she’s on the cover of Ebony with her mucho adorbs son Jett

Check out the interview below:

Jill on motherhood:

“Motherhood is getting your hands and your feet in the soil…When Jett puts my face in his hands and tells me, ‘Mommy you’re so pretty’ or smells me, it’s so wonderful.”

Jill on being a single-mom:

“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.”

On raising a boy:

“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.”

On being sexy:

“The way I see things, I think that’s sexy. The way I think and the way I pray, I believe, are very sexy. I’ve never been the girl with too few clothes on. My mother told me… ‘It’s what you don’t do that makes you sexy more so than what you do.’…”
