Jill Scott does not agree with any notion that an artist should conform, even if temporarily, to sort of "get on" in the music industry. Speaking from experience in a recent interview, Scott says it's simply not a good idea because when conforming, you're not being true to yourself or your individuality and artistry.
"I started publicly in the industry a little later on in life. My first album came out when I was 27 or 28. So it's different coming from a grown ups perspective. When I initially sent out music to get a record deal or whatever, I didn't send a picture because I didn't want people to try to define who or what I was going to be based off of my appearance. I wanted them to appreciate the music," Scott shared in an interview with The Biz With D.
Speaking of conforming, she says "My lane is my own and yours is yours. I don't think conforming, in fact I know conforming to somebody else's standards of beauty or style or any of that isn't a good choice. We're all individuals. We're all creative spirits. Anything else is not giving glory…"
