  1. 1

    100% agree, except for the part about the Karate Kid. I refuse to see it.

  3. 3

    They look pretty arrogant and full of themselves to me. Luckily, I will never see any of their movies or listen to any of their music.

    What's worse about it is the parents use these kids to feed their own ego's. Will and Jada get off on it more than the kids…..

  5. 5

    couldn't have said it better

  6. 6

    There is a arrogance in their demeanor and behavior which is not becoming on anyone especially kids.

    I find that people are too quick to judge a other people and their children. Jada and Will have a strong marriage and are doing a fine job raising their children. I love Terry McMillian's books, but she didn't do a good job judging the man she fell in love with and married. I think if people mine their own business and clean up their own back yards this world be a better place to live in.

  8. 8

    They are a lot like their parents and probably enjoy doing movies. No big deal! This woman is overreacting.

  9. 9

    I think Jade and Will would be super-strict parents. They look super strict.

  10. 10

    100% spot on correct. These kids will be a mess by they time they hit 17-18 yeras old . . .

  11. 11

    This day in age, the children run the household - whether it's the Smith's or the Gosselin's or your next door neighbor……..less and less parents are actually raising their children, they are just having them………this is a prime example of giving a child what they want instead of what they need.

  12. 12

    It's unfeasible that two veterans of Hollywood would allow their children to be exploited by the media.

    By doing so, the Smith's allow, condone and encourage their children to be criticized and scrutinized and mocked and dismissed nastily.

    They might as well cut out the middle men and themselves call their kids nepotistic, talentless, obnoxious brats who have taken on the air of self-importance and entitlement of both children AND Hollywood stars.

  13. 13

    @.pique. I must correct you. In recent articles, Willow and her parents have both come forth stating that they have an "agreement" with their children. They don't discipline. If there is some sort of punishment, the kids get to PICK what it is. Willow has also stated that she is far behind in school and it's no big deal. Her parents are definitely putting the star factor first before what is really important, education and responsibility. I'm so glad my children will never be in school with either of these kids.

  14. 14

    I'll agree, Im already sick of them being shoved down my throat, they act too cocky too. Just because they have these two as parents is the ONLY reason they get work. I just cant respect that. Give someone a job on their true talent. I wont waste my money on anything they do!

  15. 15

    She has a point it seems to be the case in a lot of child actors they grow up usually sad because they feel they missed out on a true child hood.

  16. 16

    Those are odd looking kids in my opinion.

  17. 17

    100% on spot! Why the rush? Now they'll be has-beens before they hit high school!

  18. 18

    Totally agree, well said.

  19. B0red says – reply to this


    Too true!

  20. 20

    100% agree, u can see it in their faces and demeanor…..brats

  21. 21

    I actually agree w her. How the hell can you know this is what you wanna do when your 10? Gimme a break. they need to just be kids.

  22. 22

    yes, she hit it dead on including the part about their pre-mature arrogance.

  23. 23

    Yes, they look like arrogant little bastards.
    Yes, they are way too young.
    Yes, they are being exploited.
    Yes, Will and Jada are idiots.

    Was this even really a debate topic, seems obviously 1 sided to me. NEXT!

  24. 24

    I too think it's really sad when kids are pushed into the adult world. Everytime I see Willow my I also see a little girl with a big attitude.

  25. 25

    Re: Fade – You make me laugh. Great mindless generic post. 10,000 sperm, and you were the fastest? Sad.

  26. 26

    Arrogant entitled brats. But of course a 9 yr old is gonna feel that way when they are handed a simultaneous music/movie career. Whats next? Will Willow be hosting the Emmys and opening her own show on Broadway?

  27. 27

    i agree with her. if you don't know what thell to do after 4 years of college, how are these kids who haven't even hit puberty?? it's great if they're having fun with it, but no kid should have a "job" as hectic as being an actor, where they're already dealing with schedules, meetings, and other headaches that kids shouldn't experience until waaaayyy later. i don't understand why their parents would expose them to this. who the fuck cares if they have "connections"?? they'll still be there after your kid finishes school and tells you they want a career out of acting. but until then, don't push your unaccomplished dreams onto your kids

  28. 28

    I'm glad someone has the guts enough to call them out on this.
    Children shouldn't have careers they should have childhoods.

  29. 29

    Hmmmmm. While I agree that there is a certain arrogance to the kids, Terry should shut up. She's no prodigy either. She's an awful writer, in my opinion - just above Zane. And she married a gay man, and didn't have a clue. Have you seen him? Who could miss it? What she didn't admit was that the kids really are charismatic and watchable. So there is some degree of talent. She's not an expert at anything except writing melodramatic trash that glorifies the materialistic.

  30. 30

    Why can't children be allowed their childhood for gods sake?!

  31. 31

    Re: Fade

    You are so right. I can't believe that she would criticize anyone. What a bitch.

  32. 32

    If you didn't know who these kids were one can look at the pic to the right and never know that one of them is male and one was a female.

  33. 33

    Now what if Will and Jada came out and said something about Terry being the world's dumbest beard?? Then she'd get mad. She needs to mind her own business and figure out how she couldn't spot her ex husband for being a sissy.

  34. 34

    Well said. Will n Jada think that theyre letting their kids do what the kids want but the kids are actually doing what their parent want them to do and the only thing they know how to do. Then they get praised for it by their parents which they think is love and the cycle is complete. That is why I also think it is crucial to shield them from all this BS, so they find their own path.

  35. 35

    I don't know that I agree with the term exploited, but entitled surely does come to mind. I'm glad most hollywood families don't do this, but it doesn't surprise me coming out of the Smith household….

  36. LCFB says – reply to this


    Re: stylishmomma – wtf is being shoved down your throat. i really hate that saying. it's not like you can't change the channel. there are a lot of artist i wish would just go away, but i don't support thier music or projects. nothing is ever shoved down my throat. i am not into media rape.

  37. 37

    The woman NAILED IT! Will and Jada are absolutely pimping their kids! It's repulsive. The once high opinion I had of Will is gone!

    Look what Scientology has done for these people! No, thank you!

  38. 38

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are already pimping Suri out, too! They practically offer her up on a silver platter for the pap's cameras! You watch, that kid will be doing the same as Will's in a couple years, if not sooner!

  39. 39

    BTW, I love how people agree with this woman BECAUSE SHE'S BLACK! If a white person said the same thing, they'd be "jealous" or "racist" or something worse! This shiz cracks me up! Oh, the hypocrisy!

  40. 40

    Does anyone even know that Will Smith has an older son? He's actually a real cutie. He's cuter than Jaden. Anyways…

  41. Laura says – reply to this


    she aint saying anything no one already didnt know.

  42. 42

    She is entitled to her opinion and I have to agree with her 100%. These monters are obnoxious, arrogant, spoil little brats. Can't stand them. The daughter already admitted that she's way behind school and the mother said she doesn't even believe in discipline.

  43. 43

    Totally agree with her! Those kids come across as spoiled brats. But its no surprise, Will and Jada both have huge egos, and it appears they haven't cared to instill any kind of grace or humility in their children.

  44. 44

    She's right. The Smith kids come off as arrogant and pushy. And I wish the whole family would just go away.

  45. 45

    Sadly, I agree with Terry 100%

  46. 46

    I think people need to mind their own business. We have been given no reason to believe that Will and Jada are "exploiting" their children. To me it seems as though Jaden and Willow actually enjoy what they're doing (which isn't too farfetched considering their parents are in the business). People need to get a grip and quit making a big deal out of nothing.

  47. 47

    I'd like to knock the Ba-jesus out of da both of em

  48. 48

    Props to her for saying what everyone has been thinking but are too scared to say..

  49. 49

    Love how people say "mind your own business" while reading and commenting on perezhilton.com

  50. 50

    I totally agree with what McMillan says about the Smith family. I can't stand looking at those children. Arrogant for sure. I used to be a fan of Will Smith but now he is just as irritating to me. I really can't stand looking at those kids.

    I think that the Smiths are trying to create a dynasty of an acting family similar to the Redgrave family and the Barrymores. It feels to me that Will and Jada Smith are pushing to be the first BLACK family to create this kind of dynasty. Their children would be nothing without their parents connections and influence

  51. 51

    At last. Someone has the guys to speak the truth about those children.

  52. 52

    Bravo lady! I'm glad someone had the balls to call Will & Jada out on this shit.

  53. 53

    Better to see the Smith kids than stupid, fat Bristol Palin.

  54. 54

    I see more arrogant kids at the grocery store than I do in Will and Jada's kids. Growing up in a Hollywood home with famous parents, they were never going to have a normal childhoold, anyway. I wonder if Terry or any of the naysayers actually sat in on the conversation when Jaden or Willow decided to enter show biz, or when Jada and Will allegedly forced them into it, since these people making comments seem to know more what's best for them.

  55. 55

    Re: RabbitHeart – Its not forcing them directly, its the indirect implications, proposals, praises, offers and they way kids see how they would make their parents proud with that and what is important in their world, the Smith family universe. I am sure she does not mean they force them. Kids will try to impress parents and Will n Jada are not being smart about it.

  56. 56

    she also forgot to mention how annoying they are !

  57. JLa says – reply to this


    Don't get me wrong I really like Will smith!! And I am sure they are good parents. But these children need to be given a chance of a normal childhood has well let them be. If they arent allowed their childhood its really going to damage then in their adulthood.I agree with the lady these children seem like they are being handed out the fame instead of earning it!! Let them decide on their own future when they are a little more mature.

  58. 58

    Maybe her wording is a bit jaded.. but I get where she is coming from totally. There is potential for Jaden to be a great actor one day.. but not yet. And that Willow.. no.. she's got nothing really. No real talent, looks … her parents are paying for an expensive hobby. but by being subjected to the media public.. they will be reading and seeing all the negativity. What happened to parents protecting their kids from wrong decisions

  59. 59

    agree…..this kids are ugly and full of shit…..if they were talented,ok,but they are not….total bullshit

  60. 60

    Don't you have to have talent to be pimp? Anyway shes on point with this.

  61. 61

    I agree with the person who said I'd rather see the Smith's than fat, stupid Bristol Palin…man…that was hilarious. I think the point to be made here is that when parents don't set rules, it's i want this and I want that and they get it. But when you're parent's are Will and Jada Smith, it's Daddy, I want my own record label, ask Jay-Z if he'll give me one - I want to remake Annie, Daddy, I want to remake the Karate Kid sooner or later, they're going to run out of things to want…and they're going to hate being stars…just learn to say no, it's your duty as a parent

  62. 62

    I think Will and Jada lost their fucking minds or got forced to exploit their kids idk but its crazy as hell .

  63. 63

    Yes! I am glad someone said something! Will is doing Annie just so his daughter can be in it. She and her brother are not going to know about struggle or hard work because their parents are going to give them everything on a silver platter. I do not now about Jaden but Willow just seems to enjoy the attention.

  64. 64


    But she failed to mention that because the parents careers are in the toilet they have to make money somewhere…like from their kids.

  65. 65

    I think some people fail to realize that the Smith's have another son. An older one who has a normal life. He doesn't want to be in show business and he isn't. He's a normal kid. The younger two want to be like their parents and perform.

    Most parents would do whatever they could to help their child with whatever dreams and goals they have at a particular time in their lives. When we were young and wanted to play piano or be a ballerina, mom and dad put us in those classes. When we decided to quit and do something else, that was fine too. The Smiths are just doing what normal parents do, its just on a grander scale.

    And maybe they are cocky and arrogant, there are normal kids who are just as bad or worse. Look at your own family, kids, and friends. Judge them the same way you judge people you don't even know.

  66. 66

    I COULDNT AGREE MORE!!! They are very arrogant, ive noticed that so much and its really annoying. I always respected Will and Jada because they stayed low key and they seemed like one of the few real couples in hollywood but I guess things have changed… When 'whip my hair' came out, it was a cute little song. She was this cute lil 9 year with a nice catchy song but now its just annoying. what does she know about having a music career?! she can barely even hold a note. I think they should at least finish school first and explore other options. and the Annie thing…. that is just ridiculous!

  67. 67

    way to Rip off media take out.. AS USUAL lmao lmao lmao!

  68. 68

    Are they going to take every movie featuring a white child and remake it with black kids?

  69. 69

    Terry is right.These kids are conceited,entitled brats with little talent.

  70. 70

    Gosh that girl is ugly. I have seen her do interviews on her song whip my hair or whatever its called and she has a crappy "Im the shit" attitude already. Just like her momma. Never hear much on the boy, but at least he is cuter than that butt ugly girl of theirs.

  71. 71

    Agreed. They have no talent and are obviously being treated special by the entertainment industry just because of their parents. Kids should be kids, dammit! This country is going to hell!

  72. 72

    what's the purpose of putting your little kids into a full-time entertainment career, I don't get it either, unless your hurting for money

  73. 73

    Who cares?? The kids are lame little shits already. Still can't believe there was a Karate Kid remake in the first place! Can't even tell which is the boy and which is the girl. And that song by the girl is atrocious. Yea, I'd love to whip her by the hair into a wood chipper.

  74. 74

    Re: April 20th – you are a fucking dumb piece of shit if anyone needs to grow up and mind their own business its YOU you stupid asshair no one gives a FUCK about your snotty 2 cents

  75. 75

    I totally agree. A nine year old should be playing outside instead of talking about her career. So sad.

  76. 76


  77. 77

    That Willow is one UGLY little girl…hope she does not get used to all that attention, 'cos, LORD KNOWS, she aint' going anywhere with her career…One Hit Wonder !

  78. 78

    Willow always has a look on her face of having just let loose one Massive, UGLY fart !

  79. 79

    Why do I see PORN in Willow's future…? The Wonders Of Willow…..*SIGH*…so typical of alll these child stars….

  80. 80

    OF COURSE THEY'RE BEING PIMPED! I refuse to see any of their movies or even their YouTube videos. I can't stand that family's egos.

  81. 81

    As much as I love the SMITH'S I hate to say that she's absolutely right…
    I think it's great that they are so talented BUT sometimes you need to stick to what's really important..
    Unfortunetly you can see all of that in they're demeanor and behavior and that usually stems from lack of normalcy in life…
    Most of the time these celebrity's get caught up in they're own fame and money and greed steps in and all morals go out the window…

  82. 82

    Although I don't think we should tell people how to raise their kids (if they are respecting the rule of law), I think - sounding really old - we already make children grow too fast. The Smith kids are talented, I don't think that polishing their talent with classes and a fairly normal social environment would have hurt them. There are steps of social integration and character formation that may be lost in the way and they might miss out…

  83. 83

    HA HA…She's right! No one can call them out quite like one of their own…black hollywood elite!!!

    Like a chick fight…but with wealthy african Americans with a microphone!

    I can't weight for the Smiths excuse making on the next round!!

    Besides…she was speaking of the old school KK!!! LOL

  84. 84

    I am pretty sure the Smith’s could not work another day and still be rich. Pimping by definition means that you put someone to work for your own monetary benefit. If you knew anything about Will and Jada you would know that they are into producing television, movies, musicals and plays. One reason they decided to let their children enter the busy early as opposed later is because they are using the MaryKate and Ashley, Raven Simone and yes Miley Sirus. This is not only smart but they get to control and mold their children’s images BEFORE they have to start humping and grinding on stage in order to compete.

  85. 85

    Re: kennedyraycampbell220 – And look at what happened to MARYKATE…One killed Heath Leger, and they both do major drugs …..

  86. 86

    I totally agree!!!! Will and Jada are stage parents!!!!!! And those kids think there the shit even though they can't get a movie role without their dad producing or being in the movie!!

  87. 87

    I like Will Smith as an actor and I don't necessary have a problem with his children but I think a lot of people have a problem with them getting opportunties and chances just b/c of their name instead of having to earn it. If they earned their opportunties then I think people would at least have more respect for them. I also don't understand why they couldn't put them into acting and singing lessons and if they still want to act and sing then they could do this as adults.

  88. 88

    Never having met them, I cant say they are arrogant. But they are incredibly annoying, overexposed, and only moderately talented.

  89. 89

    100% agree, except for the part about the Karate Kid. I refuse to see it.

  90. 90

    I don't know about Willow, but Jadan has an arrogant demeanor. I think kids can know or even have an idea about what they want to do. Hell, I knew I wanted to be a chemist at around that age!

    As for being exploited… I don't believe that is the correct word. Clearly these kids would never have a "normal" childhood being the children of celebrities. Even more clearly, they don't want it.

  91. 91

    Re: imprettierthanyou – Please, have you read about Will and Jada's 'parenting'? It's non-existent. And seeing as they are allowing their children to grow up in the spotlights, people like McMillan are fully entitled to give their opinions. And thát's exactly the reason why the Smith kids should not be in the limelight. Their parents should try to shelter them, put them through school and maybe, when they're old enough, help them carreer-wise. 10-year olds should not be pursuing carreers (and deal with all the drama and hassle that goed along with it).

  92. 92

    Re: Anna Valerious – Jesus, don't you sound like one angry uptight bitch… and then I realised you got your screenname from the most laughable character in Van Helsing (and one the most laughable screen heroines ever)… LMFAO!

  93. 93

    I watched an interview with Ryan Secrest where he asked her about school. She mentioned that she has a tutor but she's too busy for school and sometimes they don't do anywork. I respect if you want to be in the music/acting industry, but you need an education…because when that's all gone you can move onto something else. Her parents are bringing her up so that this is all she knows.

  94. 94

    i whip my hair back and forth

  95. 95

    Totally agree with her! Go terry :)
