Jill Scott on Firing Her Trainer After He Told Her She Wouldn’t ‘Sell a Record’
Jill Scott is an artist that truly defines strength. Overall she is a woman who truly knows who she is and most of all, in my opinion is the epitome of beauty—gorgeous on both inside and out. Scott Recently interviewed with singersroom.com and kept it real about the incident between her and her personal trainer.
I don’t know if I necessarily thought about it because this is all hindsight,” Scott tells Singersroom about her past appearance. “But now that I think about it, I had gotten a trainer because I wanted to have more stamina. The trainer told me that if I didn’t lose weight, I would never sell a record. Of course he was fired [Laughs]. To completely spite him I decided not to – I think I probably gained weight. I was mad! The way I saw it was, how are you going to tell me I can’t? I didn’t appreciate that.”
She continues, “My grandmother’s favorite saying was ‘you can’t hold your stomach in forever’ meaning you can’t be what you’re not forever. Eventually you’re going to have to sit down and open your belt buckle. I think for me I just wanted to be myself and be in the skin I was most comfortable in because I’m a little shy – just a little bit. I have terrible stage fright and I didn’t want to be in clothes that were not my own. By that I just mean I didn’t want to be something that I’m not and pretend all day long. I don’t want to live like that. If I’m going to offer my gift to the world, I have to do it on my own terms and in the way that I feel the most comfortable.” Talk about living your life “Like its Golden.” Not to mention that photo is super, crazy, hot, dope! I love it!
