Jill Scott Talks Her Favorite Foods, Divorce And New Album

Jill Scott is a busy songstress promoting her fourth studio album “The Light of the Sun”. This time around Jill spoke to the UK Guardian about her favorite foods and even highlighted the straw that broke the camel’s back in her failed marriage.

I was once making a burger for myself at my boyfriend’s house and a lyric started pouring out and I had to catch it, so I ran to another room to write it down, but then the kitchen caught fire. His cabinets were charred, and he was furious. But it was worth it for a song.

One of the reasons my ex-husband and I broke up is that he stopped eating my food. He was pissed [off] for other reasons, but the best way to show me was by leaving what I’d made for him uneaten for days on the kitchen counter. It was a smack in the face.

My favorite food is Senegalese, which I discovered a few years ago in Paris. We went to a fabulous tiny restaurant called Au Village and I ate yassa poulet (a spicy lemon dish of chicken and caramelized onions served over rice) and blood sausage. I love foods that start in my cheeks and then vibrate up.
