Jill Scott Talks Single Motherhood in May 2013 Issue of Ebony Magazine “That I Can Do It By Myself Mentality is a Lie”

Entertainment & Celebrities / Parenting / Single Moms Talk / April 1, 2013

In the May 2013 issue of Ebony Magazine, the beautiful Jill Scott graces the cover with her 3-year-old son, Jett.  Ms. Scott never seems to disappoint in keeping it real.  In her interview, she tells the real about being a single mom, raising a son as a single mother and being a sexy mommy.

Jill on Single Motherhood:  

“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.

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 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.”

Jill 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.'”
