Jill Scott and Prince Connection
From: 777updatePrin-@yahoogroups.com


Although it is the title of her award-winning 2000 debut, nowadays
the last question you want to ask Philly's R&B "it" Girl is Who Is
Jill Scott?

"People ask me that all the time when I first meet them, and it
really gets on my nerves," Scott grumbled. "To be honest, sometimes
it makes me want to hang up the phone!"

Despite the serene, soulful vibe the singer gives off in most of her
music, you don't want to get on Scott's bad side. If pushed, she
just might flash back to her younger days and be tempted to whoop
your ass right there on the spot.

"I've done a lot of fighting in my time, and I'm down to do some
more," the Grammy-nominated artist said, reflecting on growing up in
the projects of North Philadelphia. "I don't want to, but you know,
there's just certain things that you can't sit down and take. I'm
better with my tongue now than I used to be. Before, it would just
take a few words and fists were flying."

Fortunately for fans, Scott has better things to do with her time
these days than serve knuckle sandwiches. Having just dropped her
second studio album, Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds, Vol. 2.,
which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 this month, the self-
described "street girl" is too busy enjoying herself: She recently
shed 35 pounds, married her longtime sweetie, Lyzel, and fulfilled a
lifelong dream, opening a concert for the Great Purple One in her

"I am a huge Prince fan," Scott said giddily over the phone from
downtown Los Angeles, where she was shooting the video for the
follow-up to her first single, "Golden," a shiny, infectious tune
about living life to the fullest. "It's a very rare thing for him to
have people open for him. It's been the Time and Sheila E., and
that's about it. Building a relationship with him has been like a
dream come true. I've been looking for a mentor, and I feel like I
have that in him." Scott, who's been busy penning a forthcoming book
of poetry titled "The Minutes, the Moments, the Hours," says that
other collaborations with Prince may be in the works. "We've been
talking about doing a few things together. I have something for him
to do, and I think he has a few things for me to do, too. I'm really
excited about what the future holds."

Like many of the most personal songs on the singer's often poignant
and mellifluous new offering, the second single, "Whatever," is
inspired by Scott's muse, her co-manager and husband of the past two
years. "Not to sound arrogant, but Lyzel and I know that we are in
some ways a beacon for folks who don't believe in love anymore,"
Scott said. "He is my soul mate, my equal, and I wish everyone could
have that.

"The video for 'Whatever' is kind of a documentary in a way," she
continued. "It's showing that love can last. Not just in your early
20s or your late 30s, but in your 50s, 60s and 70s. There's an awful
myth out there that when you get married, love and lovemaking fade.
It's not true. When you're really in love with somebody, the
experience is far more superior than a thousand shags and a thousand
funky hotel rooms. It's magic. You know, you don't need a lot of
chocolate to know how good it is."

The clip, shot by director Lenny Bass (Nappy Roots, Craig David),
takes place in a 150-year-old mansion in downtown L.A. "The video is
so pretty," the singer said. "It's very colorful. The character is
there with her husband, and basically, we're showing how they
progress in their lives together from about age 30 to 65. The video
showcases a part of the black family that you just don't see enough
of. There are black marriages that are still going strong 40 years
later. You hear so many myths that there aren't any people making
it, but there are. As long as there are some, there's hope."

The voluptuous Scott, who plans to embark on her own "Big and
Beautiful" tour next year, is perhaps the strongest testament to the
hope she sings about in her music. Although she's now blissfully
married, Scott says her deeply intimate lyrics are probably the
reason why so many fans approach her on the street and tell her
their relationship woes. Listening intently and sometimes crying
along with them, Scott says she feels their pain and frustration
deeply because she once walked in their shoes.

"Heartbreak was the impetus to me writing poems and music in the
first place," she explained. "Over the years I had my heart broken
so badly that if I didn't find a way to get all the pain out, I was
going to lose my mind. I was crazy! Like, wanting to slash tires and
smash car windows. Crazy! I was so hurt that I had to write. Then I
went to poetry readings and shared my work, and it was like, damn,
people really understand where I'm coming from. I was like, OK, this
is not only for myself, it's for other people, too. Fortunately a
lot of those painful days are behind me. When I'm going through
something, I've learned to nurture myself, and I stay surrounded by
people who love me. Now I can definitely say I'm living one of the
best periods of my life."
