So all his roles are going to be playing other people. Did James brown have a cougar at one time ? If not then I'm confused....

@RNBTHUG is all that hatred necessary? She's a nice looking lady who's comfortable in her own skin and weight. Leave her alone, man.

LMMFAO @ RNBTHUG!!!!

HAHAHHAHHAHA! You are right. She keeps them musty tiddays on blast because that is all she has.

It's no secret that Jill Scott is HATEFUL bitch.

Her attitude sucks and it's well known in the industry. Her being fat doesn't help either.

@3:42
Leave her alone? What you a big girl advocate? 80% of Black women are overweight or obese. They blame everything/everyone but the fried chicken their arms raise to their greedy mouths. Jill “French Fry Grease” Scott is a prime example. How can you care for your hair, your skin and accessories but not your physical body? How come you can’t watch what you eat and exercise on a consistent basis? CAUSE YOU LAZY that’s why!
I can’t find a Black Woman who jogs, attends the gym every day, who eats sensibly. Statistics say it’s only 20% of them out there. Here’s an idea, instead of watching Love & Hip Hop spend t at hour on a Treadmill or an Elliptical Machine

Other ho ho's keep their breasts out, so leave her alone.

Large and in charge? Fat bitches love giving themselves nicknames and monikers. I'm slim with curves and I love it. Ain't shit sexy about having rolls all over the place. FOH.

Tippie Toes said...

Not every fat person is fat because of food intake and I'm talking fat ppl in general no specific race - there are a lot of other factors of women being overweight and they could stem from health/medical issues just saying she may be eating right and has a thyroid problem...

Anonymous said...

Ever notice the type of women that WEALTHY (not RICH) men marry? Wealthy men always, always marry slim, petite women.

Only rappers and dough-boys hype up borderline fat (aka thick) bitches up.

I want to see Jill's two tig ole bitties on that screen.

Aint no one really checking for a fat bitch whose titties smell like moldy cheese. Aint no man in his right mind going to LEAVE a slender, sexy chick for a fat bitch.

Um he might HIT IT but he aint wife her, EVER. Check the stats. SMH @ you fat heffas dreaming, lol!

@4:15. Thank you. Only a crazy, delusional porker would call her morbidly obese, duffle bag shaped body shit like, "thick" or "curvy". NO PETUNIA PIG...you are a gotdamned manatee. Leave the McDonalds alone, grab a salad and get a membership to Planet Fitness. MAKE SURE YOU USE THAT MEMBERSHIP AT LEAST 5 TIMES A WEEK. CARDIO, sows...CARDIO! Circuit training too!

Most ignorant, southern or midwestern niggas love a fat bitch. I mean they dont give a shit how she is shaped as long as her big, fat, stretched marked up ass pokes out, lol. This type of fat hoe never looks classy or graceful in ANYTHING she wears.

RNBTHUG, you are right.

Many black women simply WONT exercise and blame it on not wanting to sweat out their hair. WTH? LOL but you sweating walking up to Popeyes for that four piece dinner though, right?!

Skinny bitches are easy to get fucked over, I know I do it all the time. Like 4:30 pm I loves tiddies, I want to see her tiddies too

I think that this whole "phat ass" craze has women wanting to pack on the pounds or get dangerous butt injections. Black men love them some curves but I think a lot of women dont understand that he wants that waist and thighs tight and ass firm and soft.

You can only get that in the gym if you dont have it naturally.

Officer Ricky said...

4:45 Nope fat bitches ALWAYS getting fucked over.

Be the main hoes dating a man WHILE HE IN JAIL. NOt that they dated prior to him getting locked up...NOOOO they meet him while he's there, call him her "bae" and put all her call center job money on his books.

LOL! I done seen this happen why too many times when I worked as a corrections officer. ALWAYS the fat chicks with busted, wine colored weaves, big plastic neon earrings and a tacky outfit on with gaudy long fake fingernails. And the funny thing is on the outside the dude they fucking with would NEVER give them a second glance. What's more funny is if the guy is paroled over to the chick's house, he's soon parole violated because he dont stay there, lol because he was simply using the bitch and found a pretty slimmy he truly wants to have on his arm. FACTS!!

Tippie how tall are you and how much do you weigh?

Not to champion obesity but just about every thick/fat chick I know has a man or a husband. The most loving and great mothers in the world are big girls. When a big woman hugs you with love, its the best feeling in the world.....shout out to my Auntie Shirley...a big BEAUTIFUL woman! Her husband is a 6 foot 7 man of pure muscle. He said a thin woman cant do SHIT for him! He married my Aunt as big curvy woman and wouldnt do things any different.
You fags on here must be pressed about the Kordell thread thats why you are on here categorizing blk women! No one cares what you find attractive! Dick N The Booty Thug, you were just lurking and waiting for the chance to bear your claws, huh?

80% of blk women are not obese....Get out of the hood, with your uneducated stats! Stop using your own gay standards to speak for all men. African men, Carribean men, Latin Men love thick big women and usually choose them before skinny chicks like me. Im tryin to GAIN weight.....Fuck You

Tippie Toes said...

@5:06
That's none of your concern but I will tell you I'm a small woman in size and weight...I don't have to be fat black or bitter to defend this woman and her craft I can look past all that and see the real person even if her attitude is stank I wouldn't blame it on her weight JHUD has a stank attitude IMO and she is skinny....

Tippie Toes said...

@5:20
You are so right about that my ex husband preferred wayyyy larger women than me and thats what he is with - I wasn't putting on lbs to be please him. My son's father dates a fat white woman now that I think of it LOL hahaha WTH?

Anonymous said...

Tippie, I think a lot of guys pretend not to like big girls, but the truth is, they will fuck the shit out of her AND wife her if she plays her cards right. Bony ass skelator Maria Shriver hired an overweight, older spanish woman thinking her husband wouldnt tap that.....well guess what? Lol
They feel threatened by slim chicks when its the full figured big titty girls they need to watch!

Anonymous said...

Jhud was a stank ass attitude having fat bitch as well, Tips.

And seriously most men who have fat wives the wives didn't start out that obese, TRUTH!

If they did marry some fat chick, they are southern or from the midwest and they surf porn and strip clubs day and night to see and touch a woman with a nice body. TRUTH!

5:20 please. WTF would any woman want to be fat for? Bitch stop lying.

Most carribbean men do NOT want fat women. That is a fucking lie. My peeps are from Trinidad and fuck no they dont.

The only reason why fat hoes are good to hug is because it's matronly.
Honestly a man wants his woman to keep herself up. Not get married, say fuck it and gain 100 lbs. I dont get bitches like that. Wtf are you doing with yourself? And wonder why you have strokes, diabetes and heart disease. smh!

Tippie Toes said...

@5:42
But in all honesty I think both of my ex got with the total opposite of me - because I won't put up with the bs forever like some other females do...both of their chicks are the total opposite of me and that's why I laughed in my previous comment them mofo's aint want nothing like my azz LMAO but it's kool because I'm not attractive to the kind of men they are now...well my son's father is still cute to me but still an azzhole

Tippie, you might have been too confident for them and that is why the told you - and got with - fat women.

Yall come on now! You know damn well an obese chick is usually 3 string on the ladder of wifing.

5:44 your peeps are the minority, hun. Just do a daily poll of the island men and their wives. I can guarantee a good percentage of their wives/girlfriends are a size 12 or bigger! Island men are notorious for having a meaty woman on their arm! Dont play dumb! Skinny or MAUGAH girls are laughed at in the Islands.

Tippie Toes said...

@5:54
Confidence had a lot to do with it but I wasn't raised to be a housewife I was making my own money and both of them grew up with housewives as mothers so I was supposed to stay in my place in their minds but I was bringing home most the bacon and while I was a wife that new the boundaries in no uncertain shape or form was I to be their welcome mat and they both grew up seeing that

@5:57
This is so true my ex hubby is Puerto Rican and the females he cheated on me with and ended up with are like Big Girls and I just used like O-o....after a while I had to bounce

Why when Jill Scott lose 10lbs we only see pics of her from the neck up, for the next 3 months? I pray she keep it off now. She's too pretty for all that blubber. I was just at Essence Fest in New Orleans for July 4th week and she was as big as a ox!

I wish that posts about Jill Scott on RWS weren't so few and far between. These comments are a delicious love/hate mix for the woman and I swear that the best and brightest commentary comes out when we're discussing her. I am a huge Jill Scott fan but I still get a kick out of some of the mess that folks say about her. You all don't know how much you're are helping me through my depression. God bless you all on Snitch for making me smile when it felt like I forgot how. More Jill! More Jill!

@5:57 PM I live in BK where over half the Black folks are from "de islands" and the only island men that love fat women are Jamaican. Like 5:44 PM said, men from Trinidad, Guyana, The Virgin Islands etc. don't want no big panty gyal inna dem bunka! Jill is gorgeous and I want o see her in this movie but I pray that she continues to drop the pounds. She'll be better for it.

Anonymous said...

I'm pulling THE RACE CARD on this one! Why is Adele's big, wide ass a multimillionaire singer with an incredible fan base and an astonishing net worth and she looks like Mrs. Doubtfire? Why is Jill's hefty proportions such a problem? It's because she's black...screw being a redbone! All people see is a fat, black woman singing and they ain't interested. It's not like the days of Bessie Smith and Sarah Vaughn. If you a black singer nowadays, you have to be slim or perfectly shaped to be accepted by the folks who matter!

All I know is that most men loves big women. Skinny girls are used as trophies but not loved. I don't deal with women that has a thing for men in jail , big or little, but BBW add a lot of sexy to a relationship. This is when a man don't see her size but her worth. So officer Ricky you may be right about the jail. But it really don't say much about a women that lower her standards for a jail bird. and 5;14 pm I feel you on what you saying and I agree. Not all big women have that I don't give a fuck attitude MOST have a lot of respect for themselves and carry themselves with true confidence. I still say BIG GIRLS ROCK!!!!

I was near the front row at an Usher concert in Philly several years ago and Jill walked in and past me and she seemed stank. No one really paid any attention to her but I recognized her. I can believe the hype about her being a hateful bitch. That face of hers was like a lifeless mask, much different than the smiling Sambo that she portrays on stage.

When i'm ready to get married I'm going to get me a big fat bitch. I know she ain't going nowhere and fat bitches can cook- thats why they fat- so there will always be a hot good plate on the table. I don't have time for no skinny woman with a bunch of mouth nagging in my ear. A big bitch know her place.

Here for this. Sounds like a great cast. I love all of these ladies. Jill may be a singer but she's proven herself to be good actress. Not every singer can crossover to actress with success.

I see a lot of big black women out there but I see a lot of fit-looking black women too. I simply can't believe anyone who tells me that 8 out of every 10 sistas is obese. That's absurd. I will definitely say that this whole new standard of thickness is borderline retarded. If you are 5 feet 2 inches tall and are pushing 200lbs, yo ass is fat and not in a good way likely. And tight ass clothing does nothing but make you look more foolish. I love black women and I've never been ashamed to be a king for a bigger girl that is still attractive to me and the same for one that may feel she's on the skinny side, but sistas stay being chastised and clowned over their size. It's become an exaggerated stereotype. Of course that's nothin new because us black men and women stay slaying each other to pieces over this and other negative stereotypes.

I've always found that with women, encouraging them or pointing out something fine about them will encourage them to get back in exercise mode. Call me captain save a hoe if you want (fuck yo couch) but tearing sistas down at every turn because of their size is just some cold shit. Like Tippie alluded to, not everybody is dealing with the same dynamics.

Jill is beautiful yea she's big so what and SO ARE HER POCKETS! What's your wallet looking like? How about you stop feeding your kids happy meals every day then complain when they start to tease your fat kid one day. Stop talking about her weight like some of you havent dated slept with or married a big girl. I'm 120lbs and I know alot of guys black white or otherwise who like something they can hold onto more than us skinny girls. She's big but not sloppy she carries herself and her weight well. Yall act like she's layed up in bed like fat bastard!

Anonymous said...

BeeGee I agree with you you man. But it's a known fact that women not only Black women, but women in general are their worst enemy. 8;15 pm is a prime example. and 9:14 pm just simplified it. Most small women are wifed up but there are more full figure women that are married. What some outstanding by a woman that is full figure is one that carries herself around with confidence. The attitude that some women have is what makes it's so easy for a man, Black man, to date and marry outside his race. So for the women that carry this mentality make yourself feel good and quit expecting a man to bow down to you.

Oh I see RnB is in the house. Been gone for a while. How was prison this time? LOL. By the way what is your BMI number?

Here's a simple jumpstart for all of our weight issues? I include myself. I do spin classes 2 times a week and the treadmill the alternate days. I lost 15lbs and I still have another 20lbs to go.

1. Start with eating a healthy non processed breakfast every day.
2. Eat a salad with every meal.
3. Take a multi vitamin every day.
4. Do a healthy cleanse every other month.
5. Consider getting a colonic twice a year.
6. Stop buying, eating and snacking processed food.
7. Stop eating at fast food or chain food restaurants.
8. Find a fun exercise. Zumba and swimming can burn more 500 calories.
9. Find out if you have a thyroid or hormonal issues. Then correct it.
10. Avoid toxic people including relatives. They will try to undermine your progress.

Once again hollywood hires a white director and crew to make a black movie. Once again racist hollywood continues to steal the soul of the black race so they can profit and pleasure themselves from black celebritiy icons. Once again these cowardly black actors line up to star in these obscene movies just to get a check. Have you ever wondered why no black activist or celebrity has protested this?

P.S. The director of this movie is a white man name Tate Taylor. A white man directs a movie about James Brown! That is FUCKING BULLSHIT!
