Just in time for Mother’s Day…
Jilly from Philly graced the cover of Ebony Magazine with none other than her favorite little man, her 3-year-old son, Jett.
In the issue, Jill Scott dishes on life as a single mother, tapping into Hollywood, raising a boy and what being sexy means to her.
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.
