Singer and activist Jill Scott admitted she has something in common with the National Security Agency as she accepted the inaugural First Lady of Soul Award at the Soul Train Awards. What does the sultry soul singer have in common with the snooping federal agency? The gorgeous Scott said she “wanted to be in your house when you make that baby.” Unlike the NSA, Scott hoped her presence might even move things along. So Jill Scott has had a secret sauce for success she’s only now sharing. Scott figured long ago that she would be an aphrodisiac. That kind of music never goes out of style.
Scott said the goal wasn’t to be sexy — though you get the distinct impression she doesn’t mind being sexy — but to “write some sexy stuff for you.” The audience laughed knowingly. She also said her music had the overarching goal to be there to “squash that argument” or to “incite it if necessary.” Scott’s smile radiated from the stage, as she basked in the respect she said she’s grateful for because “I earned it…And I like it.”
