In the video, the singer who has a history of failed marriages, simulates a sex act using a microphone as a prop.
The video has been viewed nearly 500,000 times. Scott was trending on Twitter.com all day, and her desperate act has inspired hundreds of memes.
But others say Scott's act is nothing new.
One user tweeted:
"Must be the youngins that are getting excited about Jilly from Philly sucking a air dick on stage .... The older Jill Scott fans who have actually been to her old show .... know she has been doing this for a long time .. This is not new kiddies".
