Anita Baker Confirms Tea Spiller


We have confirmation people. Last week we got a tip that Anita Baker and Jill Scott had gotten into a tiff backstage at VH1 Diva's Soul [click here if you missed that].

Then we got a tea spiller who said basically, Jill Scott was being a bitch [click here if you missed that].

Now, without naming names, Ms. Baker confirms there was trouble and it didn't come from her...

These new generation bitches are always disrespecting the veterans. Back in the day, we paid homage and respected our elders and artists that influenced us. Nowadays, we have new artists throwing shade on the people who paved the way for them. In my opinion, Jill Scott is basic as hell, typical soul singer with the weight loss to match. I'm not impressed by her. How the fuck do you tell Anita Baker how to sing her shit? That's like telling MJ not to do his moonwalk.

WE ALL KNOW that fat ass Jill Scott is full of drama and shit, that is why I will not support anything she does, bitch done lost 2 lbs and thinks she's the shit.

You are the real deal and it's beyond Holyfield. You can really sang not sing, and have the library to prove it. I have only been to 1 concert in my life, and it was yours. Might I add it live not memorex or lip synced. I like Jill but please respect the OG!

Darling, Darling, Have respect for your elders and your fellow artist. They make you look good especially when you are walking in their footsteps. RESPECT goes a long way. Children, you will learn, one day, some way. Let Ms. Anita sing HER song the way SHE wants. Ok? OK!

My Two Cents~

Damn Jill...you really fucked up on this one. Dissing Anita Baker? The woman who gave up her career to take care of her kids and sick parents?! WOW...

dreadee said...

And to add...Rapture, as well as Ms. Berk's other albums are timeless. Wow..so disappointed with Jill and the Divatude. L.A. is ruining her.

OK Anita cleared the air...but let us NOT forget that she used to pull all types of stunts in her younger days as well. Fighting with Luther Vandross, backing out of an album with Babyface, and using old promo photos when she was skinny even though she gained a ton of weight...it's all there in print, just use your Google. I'm not saying Jill is wrong but y'all acting like Anita is Mother Teresa all of a sudden, c'mon now...

umm, forgive me for my ignorance yall but do the clues Ms. Baker dropped INDEED lead to Jilly? I will kindly wait for an intelligent answer before I proceed..,

Thank you kindly, in advance...

Class act that Anita,my props!

IMO...Anita should have been doing a duet with MJB anyway, since MJB has publicly stated that Anita is her mentor & Anita has stated that she adore MJB...that would have been a nice duet & the perfect time to do it...anywho, there are 3 sides to every story (Anita's, Jill's & the WHOLE truth)...not doubting that Jilly from Philly was acting diva-lish towards Anita, but it has been well documented that Anita can get diva on you too...ok, let's see if Jilly take to Tweeter to explain her side!!!

Anonymous said...

I wish there was a message board big enough for our tribute to Anita! First.... I thought I was Anita Baker she was my only IDOL as a teen!!!! Second... Full performance at a show gave you what you came to see! Third.... Jill thats it for me I liked you a lot too! But you are not all that !!! You do a lot of screaming and off tone singing every song is about how weak you are as a woman! Your weight loss is grand and thats nice to But you're still not all that.To be honest you would have messed up Sweet love any damn way!!!!! With that strong as voice like you calling animals in the damn jungle! If Anita even remotley acted like a diva she should have it's her song! No one was singing your shit one !!! Now go have a damn Biscuit,Crown Royal and Collard Greens on that shit Jill!!!! Still Flamin @#$%&*$%^!!!!

Anonymous said...

Meh, fuck 'em both.

People out here starving and these bitches on the internet "tweeting" about some bullshit. No one cares in the end.

But I agree Jill Scott turned into a fake Hollywood BITCH. I have worked with her once on a music video and she is such a fucking bitchy ass bitch bitch bitch!

Anonymous said...

ok...dare I remind people that we are dealing with two diva attitudes...maybe some of you are not old enough to remember the separation behind the scenes during the Luther/Anita tour years ago...I think there may have been some disrespect on Jill's side (they both are extra GRAND)but I think it may have been a Clash of the Titans...

Now we know why Jill can't keep a man ! Damn and I got love advice from her music...NEVA again

Is Jill's manager named John? I believe her baby daddy's name is John. Or is her babby daddy her manager now? hmmm

Anonymous said...

Regardless if Anita was a "diva" in her day, she earned that right! She's a soul legend. I'm so tired of people trying to make it OK for these new generation bitches to disrespect those who came before them. Fuck Jill. You don't tell a legend how to sing her song. You sit back, take cues and try to keep up.

Anonymous said...

I'm going to keep it 100%! i don't believe everything she is saying is TRUE! sorry! when people type in all that crying mess they are looking for public sympathy.I believe things were already established, and last minute she wanted to change the shit up and do it her way. Guess what, Jill may have had other plans and other songs to sing that night to be there practicing with you. I don't believe her story, come harder!

Okay, now I love Anita Baker like the next Sista. She is a living legend and a true artist.

That being said, I'm calling out everybody in this thread with the exception of a few as being AB fan club members. Are you guys REALLY doing the knowledge to the tweets your idol dropped or are you guys just blindly following?

Just askin...

Anonymous said...

okay guys. just did some research on this and Anita's beef appears to be with the producers of the divas show. JUST AS I SUSPECTED! This was probably some gay white male pulling a stunt and Ms. Anita got the short end of the stick!

I have even more respect for Ms. Baker now because I KNOW that they don't fuck with the wrong Black woman in show business... or better yet, they don't fuck with the RIGHT Black woman! This let's me know that all along, Ms. Baker wasn't taking no shit from these white boys and homos that rule the music industry!!!

Ms. Baker, you betta work!

Snitch, I see you just let your readers do ALL your homework for you. You are one slick Bitch! LMAO.

dreadee said...

Okay, now I need to know: (1) If Jill wasn't the cause of this, then why did she back up out of it completely and Ledisi preformed it (She did good by the way) and (2) Is that producer fired? Because that would of been classic.

Thanks for the info/comments and 3:12 and 3:46, I needed another perspective, especially since Jill is always positive.

Anonymous said...

And that's why today's artist SUCK! No one takes pride in their work and NO ONE thinks they need practice these days - that's why album and ticket sales are low.....EWF I'm sure practice ALL the time as well as other long lasting acts, no matter how good you are, perfection of your craft shows how much you love what you do...but I digress, it's all about money these days than about being prideful in your work ethic. It seems as though no one does music because it is in their hearts, only for money now, how sad.

Anonymous said...

3:08..if Jill wasnt feeling herself...as per her own tweet..."Everytime i try an envoke conversation...people say Iam trippin" Anita wouldnt have had to leave. Dont care what you or others say,....anybody over 50 gets respect by somebody who is underaged. Young people ,keep on disrespecting your elders and your kids gonna grow up disrespecting you.
Anita Baker is a class act.Jill Scott is wrong here...as where those who went in on Anita last night on twitter,but she told yall what happened and how it was handled but still yall disrespectful....hope next time yall's momma is disrespected....cause karma is indeed a bitch. An the whole Luther thing,please Luther diva'd up on quiet a few people so tht's not proof of who Anita is.

Anonymous said...

Maybe Jill didn't want to be associated with the fallout. Could it be that Jill was backing up Ms. Baker? She could have easily did the song to upstage Ms. Baker and use the situation to her advantage. But she didn't. So how is it that Jill is still being blamed for this fiasco? hmmm

And Ledisi, with her singin ass just know she can sing any damn thang. Ledisi was like, "bitches, I don't care if I didn't rehearse this damn song. I been singin SWEET LOVE all my damn life anyway. Where's the mike? I'm ready to blow it up!"

I loves me some Anita Baker, but I'm also digging Jill Scott.

That's a wash for me, so let's just move on.

Anonymous said...

I have also read, about how nasty Anita could be. From her days, in the spotlight, to her days out of the spotlight, and into her everyday life. Thinking she's above everyone else, and should be treated as such. This coming from people in her community, neighbors, staff at kids schools, employees at stores, etc. So, it's easy to throw something out there, to get sympathy, and throw shade, and make people form negative opinions of the next person, when the other person is probably taking the high road, and just moving on, and keepin their mouth shut! Please believe, "Ms. Sweet Love Anita", is not that soft, to just cry all the way home, and not throw her DIVA antics, and tantrums!

______________________________________________
Okay, this right here ^^^^^^ I am old enough to remember the drama from Luther and she while they toured---minded you that was before blogs, and white gossip pages didn't care about our news, so yes it hit the street about Anita beign difficult.Rick James said she was very stuck up back in the day because she was good friends with one of the Mary Jane girls and Anita told her she was to good to being singing with Rick. Jilly tho it is a shame. But somebody said new artisit do this, I rmemeber they said the same for Keyshia Cole going around telling people she didn't know who Diana Ross was or almost coming to blows with Mary because she was tired of the comparisons. It does come around then goes around.

Anonymous said...

I have worked with both of them in the last 2 years and yes they are both surprisingly diva-ish. Mostly disappointed with Jill because of the type of music she sings. She is very self centered, which to me is opposite her lyrics...black love, love black people and this broad barely even speaks to her fans. Anita is more of a perfectionist, if her shit ain't right she is not getting on the stage. Both are great performers, Jill I am sure was out of line. CP

Anonymous said...

None of us know the entire story. I love both singers for their style. Since they are great singers, one might not have liked the way another got in 'their' lane. You know old R&B singers demand acknowledgement from younger singers and anybody else in their presence. I don't know how Anita treated Luther back in the day, however I can say after meeting Luther in person he is not a very nice person. As an airline employee meeting the following people, Luther Vandross, Steve Harvey, Michael Jordan, Prince, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross, Oprah Winfrey were all very rude and nasty acting. They did not want to be spoken to at all by their fans..... There were many more I met that were priceless and the reason I paid money to see. What you put out there is what you get back. Who knows what really happened besides Jill and Anita?

Anonymous said...

why are follks pointing at Jill Scott???

Anonymous said...

Why are you all going at Jill? How do you know it wasn't also out of Jills control? The producers probably knew ahead of time that Anita is a perfectionist and didn't want to get stuck in rehearsals for 1 song. The don't do "all that hollerin" sounds like something that may have come from the producers of the show. What gets me about these Diva shows is they always seem pieced together at the last minute. Singers meeting up the morning of the event and trying to plan something.

signwithclass said...

There's nothing more disappointing than people shunning the fan base that made them the success that they are. Not wanting to be bothered on a bad day is understandable. Being stand-offish everyday is just F'ed up. The fans make the artist; without them, they're nothing.

Anonymous said...

@10:00

I think people forget that celebs are human as well. When it comes to rude encounters some are rotten all the time others just depends on the day and their mood. I've heard that Bill Cosby is nasty and rude but I've also heard stories that he's really outgoing and friendly. He seemed nice when I saw him. I've found that some celebrities come off as rude when they don't have control of a fan situation in public but are really nice when it's a contained situation. I think people have high expectations for certain celebrities and forget that some of them have fans in their face 24/7. Some handle it better than others.

Anonymous said...

It wasn't all Anita in terms of Luther. He didn't like woman much and treated his road mates that were female like shit he wouldnt speak to them share the same the floor of hotels with them etc. Now I remember when Erykah Badu and Jill Scott did a mini tour and Jill tried to out do out sing Erykah and Miss Badu gave her a rin for her money. Baby she put on a show gave you drama and sang her ass off. Shut Jilly down yes she did

Anonymous said...

@11:28

I don't think Luther hated women. There are stories of Luther taking certain female singers out shopping and hanging out. Ashanti comes to mind but I can't remember the others. I think Luther was nasty to people he felt were beneath him. Women react to people who act like that much differently than men which is why Luther butted heads with women more than men. Luther loved Dionne, Whitney, Patti, Aretha (although they had a minor falling out) generally women who he looked up to.

Anonymous said...

They are both known to have very nasty diva attitudes. Who knows what really went down but I doubt either of them was innocent. Anita though is doing the MOST with that "Crying all the way home" bullshit.

As for jill she sold out anyway to the baphomet for her career, has a very nasty attitude & wonder why she can't keep a man, she's a typical sista that let sex rule over her morals & ethics as a woman,& most of ask she has low self esteem & is very insecure with herself, her music shows it,oh & she's prejudice im not supporting no black female artist like that cause above all I love me some JESUS !!!

IMO Jill can sing. Can't say I enjoyed this last album, but her 1st and 3rd albums were fabulous. I always wanted to see her in concert, but always missed her when she came to STL. One night, I had her BET concert on while doing some paperwork and noticed more talking than singing. I had to change the damn channel. Good singer, yes. Good performer? Not quite. I'd buy another album, but not a concert ticket.

ow bout this the next time just dont invite that disrespectful walrus to any tribute honor awards cause miss jill have become a real fake phony balony bish with weight issues over the years.she havent accomplish anything as real or as astonishingly close to anita.she has always been circular and regular in the music bizz.she never reached no height or even have no real high lights in her lil two bit career besides doing a tyler perry movie.jill seriously needs to fall the hell back with her irrelevent self.jill will never be on anita level she dosent have the heart nor the soul.

Yeah. No one knows what happened between Anita and Jill supposedly. Except for the 30 other staffers that saw what happened with their own eyes. Including the person who brought it to you and later had it confirmed as the truth.

3:08 You are right about that. Luther HATED women and fought with all of them during tours. (I saw with my own eyes). I bet He was the Diva, not Anita. Its time for Herstory - History is a lie.

@BeeMindful2Know said...

Amen about the Herstory! Good one. And, it's really funny how when a woman simply wants to be respected and/or wants things done right, she's a bitch; but, if some dumbass dude yells and rants and acts a monkey (like my boss), then he's "taking charge." I already know that the intelligent people on here know how incredibly tough the music industry is on women, esp. black women and esp. back in the day (just ask the fabulous Jody Watley). So I know yall are smart enough to figure out that AB can't be all bad since we've NEVER heard a peep out of MJB saying otherwise...duh! It's so funny how people are so quick to crucify someone even after they have proven themselves. I don't know about you but I've NEVER seen an AB interview where she was rude and self-absorbed, and you can't keep faking that. She's always giving credit to others, showing love to fellow legends, and promoting new or young talent. Also, it is not fair to judge celebs based on their interaction with each and every fan. They have to be cautious and you've got some real crazies out there...including the ones on here writing mean-spirited, unconfirmed, and/or untruthful statements about our sweet love, Anita Baker. And, if you bother to research her life story, she's been through a lot and has had to overcome many trials & tribs...But, you don't hear about that, do ya? And finally, I did a little "homework" and looked up AB's b-day, Jan 26th. Among the many traits, they can be perfectionists and possess intense internal emotions. They can be very caring. So I'm not hatin' b/c these are the traits that allowed the beautiful Anita Baker to give us the best that she's got...and there's no one in the world like her. Hang in there AB! You're our Angel! : ) @BeeMindful2Know

I know I'm late to the party, but I want to add my 2 cents in... F*ck that cunt Jill Scott... I used to like her, but when it comes to Anita, sorry Jill you lose. You had 1, count em, one hit album. Anita had Rapture, Giving You the Best That I Got, Compositions, and Rhythm of Love... All timeless classics. And now she's back on the charts decades later turning Tyrese's song back into a hit. Please, Jill I'm so disappointed. The nerve!
