You can tell from Jill Scott’s songs that when this Philly lady loves, she loves hard and we always sort of get the feeling that Miss Scott loves the idea of love. But when we chatted up the Grammy Award-winning artist at the press junket for her upcoming flick, “Baggage Claim,” she said don’t get it twisted when it comes to her sensual songs — she is hardly pressed for a man.
When we asked whether Jill she had any similarities with “Baggage Claim’s” main character, Montana, who is dying to make it down the aisle, Jill said she is quite the opposite:
“I’m not pressed for romance or love,” she told us. Love, yes. But I’m not pressed to be in a relationship with anybody. If it happens, it happens, but I’m not on a man hunt.
“Eventually, would I like to get married? I don’t know. I did that. I’ve been there and I married my best friend so if I were going to do that again I’d have to be swept – and well.”
Shoot, if you’re going to do it the first time you need to be swept — and well — but we definitely understand where Jill is coming from. No one wants to make the same mistake twice, especially when you thought the first time around was right.
Since we were on the topic of alleged mistakes, we couldn’t resist to ask Jill what’s the craziest thing she’s ever done for love and here’s what she said:
“Getting on a plane impromptu – literally just going to the airport, not knowing if there’s a flight or not – and getting on a flight and flying for six hours to apologize.”
She must’ve done something really wrong…
