Post ATTENTION...!!!!!!!

ATTENTION ALL FANS!!! Tomorrow's Oprah Show PROMISES to be the bomb. Get this, she's having Yolanda Adams, Alicia Keys, India Arie, and...(drum roll) JILL SCOTT (that's right, I said JILL SCOTT)!!!!! I'm an advid fan of Jill so this is one show that I have NO intentions of missing. So, I KNOW that we have GOT to talk about this afterwards. So, if you're going to be at work or busy, make SURE that you tape it or something.

She is most definetely late gettin on Jill Scotts bandwagon. She has not had any current RB/or hip hop performers on her show in recent memory. Does she have a thing against todays music. I am a bit curious.

Well Nicci, whatever the case may be, let's just thank heavens that she has FINALLY seen the light. I'm starting to change my mind (just a liiiittle bit) about Oprah. I feel that ANYONE who would just LISTEN to Jill Scott's CD ONE time, they would automatically get hooked. I'm sooo excited for Jill. Let's face it, by her being on Oprah, she's probably going to get a lot more exposure that is positive and richly deserved. I can't wait until Volume II of her CD comes out (Volume I is ALREADY a classic). Jill is beautiful and so is her music.

i find it odd that in one instance individuals complain that when "blacks" have a show they have TOO much hip-hop...music centered stuff...instead of things that appeal to a broader audience...like spirituality...day to day issues that everyone can relate to like child rearing, personal issues and the like...not every black man or woman that gets their own show is going to be "black-centered"...by playing into the stereotype the hip-hoppin' and bebopin' is what we are all about...we sell ourselves short...and i applaud oprah for venturing out into human territory as opposed to playing into the stereotype of what all blacks are thought to be about...

SableCherub, I understand and agree with what you're saying. But I want you to know that MY thing with Oprah has nothing do with her choices for topics. I stopped watching Oprah for a while because of what I THOUGHT to be her "all-of-a-sudden" arrogant attitude( you know when she first lost all of that weight, her "she's every woman" phase, her "Stedman, Stedman, Stedman" phase). That was just a turn off FOR ME.

Now RECENTLY (maybe about 3 months ago) I started watching her again and I see that she has now come back down to earth. Now, I try not to miss ANY of her shows because I find them enjoyable and helpful in MY life.

Don't get me wrong. I think that Oprah's approach is fantastic. She's made some obvious changes over the years (so have I or else I wouldn't be watching her now). It's obvious that she is good at what she does, especially now, because she is successful and RICH!!!

Oprah has had other R&B artists on her show before. I'm just glad that she had the opportunity to get JILL SCOTT on. And, as I said before, I feel that Jill Scott (and the other artists, that appear on Oprah) get the opportunity to get more POSITIVE and WELL-DESERVED EXPOSURE because Oprah's got it like that.

oprah does indeed have it like that because she has worked her a$$ off and endured the not so brown pastures she's had to muck her way through to get to where she is...she does not need to be brought back down to earth...that is the problem now days...every time someone gets ahead...like crabs in a barrel we feel the need to pull each other down physically, intellectually, spiritually, socially until it meets our comfort zones...i was not specifically gearing my opinion towards you...but speaking generally...and though you may be able to appreciate a woman like that now...not everyone can...and like crabs...want to pull her "back to earth"...

Yaaaaaay!!!! I love Jill too! I think I'll have to get sick tomorrow & leave work a little early.

I agree korkscru, this exposure for Jill (and the others) is great, because Oprah is like God to some folks and if she promotes or endorses anything, then it has to be chiznit!

You know, Jill IZ my gurl!
I cannot wait until Essence! I thought I was gonna miss the show, cause the local news kept breaking "thru" cause they were talkin' about tornadoes, rain, flooding, etc.

I didn't want to know about all dat! LOL

Luckily, they broke thru everyone except for Jill!

YAY!

O had alot of 'us" in the audience, didn't she? HE HE HE!

Ladies did yall see it? It was great!! EVERYONE was great!!! But of course, I'm going to say that Jill was her original self---as usual. She's just a BEAUTIFUL person. And I heard (before Oprah mentioned it) that she was voted one of the world's most beautiful people. I agree. She didn't need nothing but a piano (and all India Arie needed was her guitar). I thought that was great. The BEST thing about this entire show was the fact that these women actually can sing!!!! And the backup singers were also great. I just LOVE me some Jill Scott though!!!

Oprah, I've got to give you "TWO-THUMBS UP" for this show.

Maaaaaaaaaan that show was fabulous. It was great to see and hear them. I cannot wait to see Jill next month. It was wonderful to see that they are beautiful INSIDE and OUT.

I also liked learning the lesson behind Mary Mary's name.

OPRAH,
