Jill Scott Visits 'The Breakfast Club'/ Talks About Relationship Issues And Her New Album, 'Woman'
Recently, Jill Scott visited 'The Breakfast Club,' where the singer spoke on relationship issues, along with her new album, 'Woman.'
I really enjoyed the interview, though I thought there was a lack of focus on her album. It wasn't intentionally though. Of course, Angela Yee and Charlamagne The God spoke on Bill Cosby, as Jill was one of the few who stood by him during the rape allegations. She had spoke on Twitter last year, how she didn't believe the rape allegations, as Bill Cosby was someone she proudly looked up to, saying how 'A Different World' even made her want to go to college. She even brought up the fact that other men such as Phil Spector have done wrong, and still get respected. Beforehand, Jill Scott did talk about her latest single, 'Closure,' where Jill was asked if she thought having sex for the last time was good for 'closure?' Jill said in response, that she thought it could work.
Jill Scott also spoke on why she titled the album, 'Woman' saying that, "I've been waiting to get here for a long time. As a female, I've been waiting to get to this point where I'm grown, I'm going to say what I feel, I'm going to say what I believe, I'm going to use my wisdom. I've had enough life experiences to feel like I could really impact somebody younger than me or maybe somebody the same age."
Very chill interview. I like how open Jill Scott is, and it's clear 'The Breakfast Club' have a lot of respect for her. I could definitely see Jill being a counselor or life coach, as Charlemagne said. She's a very calm person, and she covered so many bases about relationships, needs vs. wants, and her own personal experiences. I just would've wish 'The Breakfast Club' covered more on the album, because I have many questions myself on 'Woman.' Like, if all the songs are based upon personal experience? If there will be a video release for 'Closure' or 'Fool's Gold?"
