Hot Tea from the Comment Section?


Someone from the comment section spilled bit of hot tea regarding that alleged Diva fight between Jill Scott and Anita Baker last week [click here if you missed that]...

Ok, the reason the tea sounds plausible is because Anita Baker was one of the scheduled performers on all the promo press, but mysteriously wasn't on the show. Then Ledisi talked about having to fill in at the last minute to sing Anita Baker's signature song 'Sweet Love', telling VH1 in an after concert interview,
“I was headed to go to the red carpet and the producers and the music director and my manager all came rushing to my room. I was asked ‘Can you sing ‘Sweet Love’?” and I was like, ‘Stop playin! [laughs] Anita Baker’s singing that’. But then they told me ‘No, this is serious.’ And I was like “Oh my God, yeah sure, sure, if you need me, I’ll do it.’ I didn’t ask what happened because I didn’t want to be in the middle of that —

and without further ado, the tea:

To be really brief:

Its widely regarded by staff that this was Jill Scott's fault. Did not want to perform the song Sweet Love at all, annoyed production staff but acted like an ass when she didnt have the song changed and completely ditched Anita at their dress rehearsals and other things. Anita is rumored to have pulled out as a result. There were no blows or arguement; as production staff I have to say that it really was Jill Scott blowing Anita Baker off.

Thats all folks.

Now stop being vultures.

Yeah so, take the tea or leave it. As for me, I'll have mine with crumpets, please.

How you gonna be spilling "tea" and then call us vultures? I didn't watch the show, don't have plans to watch the show, and could care less about vh1 or any of those old birds on the show. Now, how 'bout that you talebearer?

Is this recycled tea? I could've sworn this was posted already. Not getting the responses you wanted, Snitch? I guess not enough people are interested in this whole battle of the divas thing, especially when it sounds fake as hell anyway.

I love both Anita Baker and Jill Scott and I hope that whatever went down at vh1 (like we don't know that vh1 purposely stirs up shit between the women on these diva specials) I hope it was resolved between the two of them. This industry just loves pitting women against each other. Guess this pleases the pink mafia so that no one will get up in their corrupt shit!

I don't care it sounds like karma came back to bite Anita because that's the same thing she did to Luther. Agreed to record a duet, Luther set up recording time and then Anita didn't show up and didn't even call to explain why.

Anita ain't mad that Walter left; good riddance and it was worth the money to see his rusty behind leave. After he blows through it, if he hasn't already, he doesn't have anything left while Ms. Anita can tour and get paid.

"Hey Little Walter...HEY Little Walter listen, HEY Little Walter, something's gonna get you Little Walter"

Jill must have had her reason, because she's a NICE as they come. Now that Cow Anita...well that ole crow got what's coming to her...again and again.

I've met both and Anita was nice. Jill, not so much unless she's being revered, praised & the center of attention.

I don't get it. Who did not want to perform - Jill? Why bring up the Ledisi part then?

i would find it hard to believe anita was the innocent one here, given her history with Luther and Janet...and her attitude in general.

That song is hard to sing if you're not able to sing in Anita's tone. I don't blame Jill asking for a song change.

Jilly wants to promote her own stuff. Stuff that won't show how her voice isn't all that. Sweet Love is a seriously hard song to sing.

There's a reason why Jilly can't cross-over. She's burned too many bridges.

Let me slide in after you jerks have commented again.
From the same staff that told you what really happened, Briefly:

*I dont know what the fuck tea is, but fuck that.

*About Jill:
Jill was nice, but blowing everyone off at rehearsals. As if she was mad that she had to rehearse. It wasnt just with Anita Baker, who tends to be rehearse-heavy before going live. Shes a nice person, but I think she honestly wasnt too concerned with Anita as she was a last minute add and really didnt want to sing the song.

*Jill hasnt been right since the her first husband cheated on her, then baby daddy and okayplayer.com situations and various internet rants.

*About Anita:
Anita Baker was not a bitch to us in anyway. Nor has be been mean in the the times shes worked with us. She IS a motherfucking perfectionist and its sad to see internet peons who only exist because of her music talking shit. She did request 3 rehearsals at the last minute which was hard to execute, but doable.

*Anita aint been right since finding out her husband was gay and cheating on her with other men and has had 3 different stalkers in 15 years. And the Luther thing occured because her birthmother was placed in the hospital. Dont know if they ever made peace though.

If you worked the industry, youd know this.


And I have no problem revealing identity to the right people. Not you gossipy peons. This place does not have a contact page I can find. I dont make things up. I was there. Nor do I sit on the internet typing things about people Id never say to their face. I told you people that to shut you up about the situation, frankly. You were online talking about a 5'11 Jill Scott and a 5'0 Anita Baker were "throwing blows." You idiots.

Some of you sound mad really mad because Anita/Jill didnt sign your autograph that one time in 1985/2003. lolz. Calm down, Crumbs.

Respect to this blog for pointing out the truth though.
