Jada Pinkett Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith will be busy again these days since she will be part of the Gotham series wherein her role will be a villain. The 42-year-old actress recently visited The Arsenio Hall Show to promote the series. She also chatted about how she met her husband, Will Smith. Jada also talked about her friendship with Tupac.
How did she meet Will? Jada said:
Will and Jada Smith
“When I was 19, I auditioned to play one of his girlfriends on Fresh Prince and they told me I was too short. But then, many years later, once I started a film career and everything, Mr. Smith decided he wanted to come and ask me to play his girlfriend again. And I had to tell him ‘no’ again. Thank goodness because I think if I had done it, we would not be married today. Because you have to meet people when you’re ready and neither one of us were ready at that time.”
Jada also revealed that it was her mom who knew that Will was the right guy for her. She explained:
“I remember meeting him one time at Bullock’s. Bullock’s is this department store here in Los Angeles. And I was with my mother! And here comes Will. He’s like, ‘Hey Jada!’ and saying hello to my mother and just as cheery and happy as he always is. And my mother said, ‘Why can’t you date a nice guy like him?’ I said, ‘Will?! That’s the Fresh Prince! What I’mma do with him?!’ And of course, look at me now. He got me on lock down, Arsenio! He got me! Finally!”
What are your thoughts on their relationship?

Will Smith and sons
Unlike most fathers, Will Smith has a unique way of bonding with his sons. Instead of bonding with sports and cars, Will and his sons jumped out of planes. On the other hand, his wife Jada and daughter Willow were staying at home. Will Smith brought his sons 21-year-old Trey and 15-year-old Jaden to Dubai so that they can get the chance to experience the amazing adrenaline rush of skydiving.
However, before the Smith boys did it, Will had to test it first with his Fresh Prince co-star Alfonso Ribeiro. Afterward, he let his sons try it out. On his Facebook account, Will wrote:
“I jumped with Trey and Jaden today. I kept thinking to myself, “This potentially may be the individual worst display of parenting in African-American history.”
Jada Pinkett-Smith also shared a photo of Jaden’s adventure with the caption:
“Jaden jumping from a plane. Life.”
Will Smith and sons
Will revealed that he did not feel nervous at all. He said:
“I’m strangely calm. I don’t really understand. Like, zero nerves.
Any shout outs before we go?
I’ll see you at the bottom!”
Isn’t it incredible?

Will and Jada’s marriage is facing another huge challenge towards the end of the year. According to Star Magazine, the couple’s marriage is recently on the rocks after Will was caught in a photo both with Margot Robbie, his 23-year-old co-star in his latest movie “Focus.” The photo shows that Margot and Will are getting cozy with each other while hugging and lifting up their shirts. According to an eyewitness, “Once they pulled the curtain back to take the pictures, they let their inhibitions run wild, laughing, hugging and muzzling each other in the dark.”
Will and Jada Smith
There were also rumors that Jada is already living with her brother Caleb. When Will’s mother, Carolyn, was asked about the situation of the couple, she answered:
“Isn’t that personal? … Thank you for your concern.”
Jada recently tweeted that success did not make her happy. She wrote:
“When you are going through a storm with your spouse … stop thinking about what you ‘believe’ a husband or wife should be.”
“I thought success would make me happy … It does NOT.”
Is it true and Jada and Will are splitting?

While Will and Jaden were on tour for their After Earth promotion, they made a stop over at “The Graham Norton Show.” At first, Will was bragging about Jaden’s talent which resulted to an impromptu performance of Jaden’s single entitled “Hello”.
After Jaden made his freestyle performance, Will suddenly walked towards the stage and performed the “Fresh Prince” theme song once again together with his son Jaden, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro. It was considered as a classic reunion. Will was reviving the classic track with his son Jaden acting as the hype man and Jazzy was in charge of the turntables. Suddenly, Alfonso initiated the Carlton Dance Party and everyone just got crazy. They also performed a group dance to the tune of Sugar Hill Gang’s “Apache (Jump On It)”
Graham as well as his guest Heather Graham joined the performers while Bradley Cooper was just watching the performance.
If you are a fan of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” then you should not miss this wonderful moment.
Last Monday (May 20), Jessica Alba wore a Fendi dress when she attends the Champion For Children Award Ceremony which was held in Greenwich, Conn. The 32-year-old actress was given an award for her “Honest” baby product line which is eco-friendly as well as for her book which is entitled “The Honest Life” which encourages families to have healthy lifestyles.
Is Will Smith returning to music? Will said:
“I’ve been messing around with Kanye. We were in the studio a couple of times.”
“I might get the bug. I’m not gonna do it unless I’m truly inspired, but ‘Ye’s been pushing me a little bit.”
Last February, Smith and West were spotted in a Brazil studio. It’s already been eight years since Will made his solo album entitled “Lost and Found.”If Will should be inspired to go back into music then he should be able to balance music with his acting career. His latest movie entitled “After Earth” will be shown on theaters in May 31.
Paula Deen is planning to transform her house in Albany, Ga. Into a museum. According to businesswoman B.J. Fletcher she has been planning this project for two years. She collaborated with Deen’s first husband, Jimmy Deen, to get the project going. Fletcher discussed the idea with Paula and it seems that she is also interested. Paula said:
“It just takes my breath away that folks back in Albany would consider doing something like this.”
“I’m just trying to wrap my head around this incredible honor. I would want something like this to be a symbol of hope for people looking to make their lives better.”
In Hollywood more than anywhere else, it is all about timing. If only Christina Aguilera had come out before Britney Spears, maybe she would be doing better in the pop game, for example. If Aaliyah had not perished in 2001, maybe we would not be talking as much about Beyonce. And now, Queen Latifah is hoping that the second time is the charm for her talk show chances.
Recently announced as part of the fall line-up for Fox, The Queen Latifah Show will feature interviews with stars and leaders, pop culture references, and musical performances. The show is expected to feature all of her talents as a performer, so expect The Queen herself to sing a few songs with her guests. With Anderson Cooper’s talk show ending after only two seasons, this could be the perfect time to capitalize on the vacant slot. Produced in part with Will Smith’s production company, this could very well be the break that she needs to break on through to the other side towards future syndication and long time success.
In a case of mistaken lyrics, a school was shut down when the medical Receptionist heard a line from the famous television series’ theme song and sounded the alarm…
“shooting some b-ball outside of the school”
This line was mistaken for “shooting some people outside of the school, and a lockdown ensued at Ambridge High School last Thursday. The receptionist called one of the students, heard his voicemail and thought she’d heard lines that hinted at a possible massacre and called the police. The cops alerted the entire school district and a search was on for the teen. Imagine the scared 19-year old when he was taken into custody, grilled at length, and then finally came the reality that his voicemail was actually misinterpreted and it was a false alarm.
After the fiasco was over and done with, the district’s superintendent apologized profusely, and promised to review their emergency procedures for the future.
