Jill Scott usually gets requests to sing, these days, she’s getting requests to polish microphones, sorta kinda!!
If by chance you missed the memo, Scott was trending on Twitter on Tuesday because during her live performance, she was imitating having oral sex. The video is below.
WARNING: VIDEO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN
Per the Atlanta Black Star, the singer/actress took to Instagram Thursday, Nov. 15 to blast the “idiots” who missed the point of her much-buzzed-about concert clip where she pretended to give fellatio to a microphone.
Said Scott on Instagram:
“Meet and greet? Sure. Anything else? Nope. I didn’t post that old ass snippet. Piss on whoever did!” Scott fired off. “I would’ve, at least, posted that damn point of it all. Trust, there’s always purpose in what I do. My DM’s blowing up and idiots, who’ll NEVER know what I do for the man I , hollering ‘hey big head’ wasn’t it. It’s Ms. Monsta Mind or Ms Brilliant Brain Jane btw lil menz. Pa Tahhhh!!! ”
She added on Twitter, “I ain’t mad at all. I’m glowing to workHave a fantastic day and get chu some Jill Scott. Makes the day go down a lil easier.”
For those wondering, Jill Scott is single…or at least, not married.
Jill Scott has officially been a single woman for nearly two months now and she’s got a list of things she won’t accept in her next relationship.
Scott was married to Dobson for just 15 months before filing to split from him last November. She cited “irreconcilable differences” and “inappropriate marital conduct that such further cohabitation would be unsafe and improper” as the reason for the marriage ending.
Stuffing things in storage? Stuffing microphones in her mouth? Jilly from Philly may just be living her best life!
Appearing on the Joe Budden Podcast, Scott made her first public comments about the video.
Joe Budden and Jill Scott’s chat can be heard via Spotify. The chat begins at the 87-minute mark.
Here’s the million dollar question: How did the oral sex simulation with the microphone fit (no pun intended) into her show. “It’s for different purposes each time,” Scott told Joe Budden.
“That time was about the things you want to do but you have to save them for the right person. Not everyone can get your A game, you know?”
For those tardy to the party, Jill Scott is more than just a viral video. The singer/actress/songwriter hit the scene in 2000 with her debut, Who Is Jill Scott?

Also in 2007, Scott made her film debut with the films Hounddog and Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?.
