Not only does the 41-year-old Grammy Award winner have one of the most calming and melodic voices I’ve ever heard, she also drops a lot of knowledge whenever she opens her mouth.
When we caught up with the singer on the press junket for the upcoming movie “Baggage Claim,” we knew exactly what we wanted to ask her about: that 2010 essay on interracial dating in Essence magazine and her advice for single mothers raising black men, in light of both her admission to suffering from postpartum depression after having her son and the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Angela (Tasha Smith) and Marcus (Michael Jai White) are the same old couple who constantly argues because Angela accuses him of always cheating on her.
The newlyweds, Sheila (Jill Scott) and Troy (Lamman Rucker), are happy to be there together, until they all discover that her ex is joining them also. Sheila’s husband, Troy, worries about finding a job throughout their whole vacation time at the Bahamas.
Then it hit me; she’s going to the White House, isn’t she?
At first, I wondered why on earth Drudge Report was interested in a year old column by a singer.The column did indeed cause a small controversy when it first came out, however, it’s important to look beyond the scandal then and the (manufactured) one now and see that it is actually a very thoughtful piece.If you read past the provocative quote that Drudge tweeted, you’ll see that Scott is actually analyzing the internal conflict she has between being raised to view everyone as equal despite the color of their skin and the subconscious discomfort she feels seeing a successful black man dating a white woman. ’ Review Tyler Perry is back with another spontaneous movie, ‘Why Did I Get Married Too? ’ Filled with laughter, love, drama, and tears, Perry and the rest of the folks from the 1st movie reunite once again at a couple retreat to the Bahamas.
Perry also plays a part in the movie, Terry, as a loyal and loving husband whose wife becomes very secretive from him.
In that way, Scott’s supposed racism in making these comments is about as real as Shirley Sherrod’s.
