Back in July, Jada Pinkett-Smith, put us on to Willow’s budding singing talent. Quick recap: “Let me tell you, she’s 9 years old. I don’t know where that voice came from. She sings like she’s a grown woman. Like she’s been around. I’m like, ‘where does all that experience in your voice come from?’ I have no idea, but she’s something. Music is her thing.”more..
These past few weeks, Jada Pinkett-Smith has been on the media/talk show circuit in support of Jaden and The Karate Kid. On Monday, she was on The George Lopez Show. They talked about Jaden’s acting and how she protected him on the set of The Karate Kid. Willow’s mohawk was a part of the conversation too. On an earlier David Letterman appearance, Jada simply said Willow’s hair was completely her thing. Explaining that she and Will allow Willow to be a free spirit. With George Lopez, Jada got into it a little more. If you thought Willow was channelling Rihanna, or by chance, Janelle Monae, you’d be wrong. Jada said Willow’s inspiraton was .. her grandmother.more..

Last night The Secret Life of Bees premiered at The Academy Of Motion Arts & Sciences in Beverly Hills. The movie is an adaptation of the book by the same name written by Sue Monk Kidd. Don’t know a thing about it? Just picture Dakota Fanning (up above) in the early 60’s South having to leave her town after her nanny (Jennifer Hudson) insults a group of white men.
