Jill Scott Covers Ebony Magazine: Talks Single Motherhood, Raising A Son And More

April 1st, 2013 by Lifestyle Staff

 

Jill Scott Covers Ebony Magazine

 

In her very first cover feature with 3-year old son Jett, Jill Scott uncovers the triumphs and challenges of raising her son as a single celebrity mom and artist who also needs to maintain a personal life!

Inside, Jill is very honest as she talks about the struggles of being a single mother, all while revealing that no matter what she does, she can not teach her son how to be a man. Only a man can do that.

Peep a few of the excerpts from the interview below:

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.'”

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.”

In the issue, Scott also dishes on Hollywood life and her upcoming projects as well as finding her happy.

The May issue of EBONY Magazine hits newsstands April 16th.
