  1. 1

    You KNOW she is right Piggy, you just won't agree because you are hungry for recognition (publicity) from people in Hollywood.



  2. 2

    Sour Grapes. Can't pls everybody.



  3. 3

    I wouldn't consider it exploitation. The kids want to be famous… it's more like Nepotism. Mom and Dad are in the business, so the kids figure.. "put me in a movie mom or help me make a video". These kids have it easy. This is so common in Hollyweird nowadays.. mom and dad are in the business, so might as well let the kids get famous too and let them do some stupid shizz like make a video and song about whipping your hair back and forth… ugh.



  4. 4

    Willow Smith SHORE IS UGLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !



  5. 5

    it's true everything she is saying you know.



  6. 6

    Children that age should have nothing to do with Hollywood. You might not like what she said Mario, but she's right.



  7. 7

    Perez she does have good points about all this. I dont think she cares about Hollywood greenlighting her books into movies. She got that power already. She is a powerful author.



  8. 8

    Um, she has every right to speak her mind, and should never have had to back down from her opinion. Grow up, world. If you don't like it don't listen.



  9. 9

    The Smith's just bought the rights to Annie with Jay-Z just so their daughter could star in it… Maybe those words were the wrong ones to use but those kids should be kids first, they will always have acting/singing careers there for them. Willow isnt that talented of a singer, and she only has that one dumb song.



  10. 10

    What she said was spot on ACCURATE and many feel the same. Those Smith kids are precocious beyond belief.



  11. 11

    Isn't she the woman who married a man who she didn't realize he was gay.



  12. 12

    Don't take it back…she's RIGHT…everybody knows she's right



  13. 13

    And she's absolutely right! I'm glad someone is finally saying it!

    Karate Kid- Produced by Daddy
    Music- Produced by Daddy

    These kids didn't earn their position, they were born into it. It's hard to blame them, but seeing how arrogant they already are makes me not care for them or think they should be role models.



  14. 14

    She's right they are being exploited, so what if they want to be famous we all want things. Mom and Dad have enough money and take the money the kids have now, and end it before they become messed up like many others.



  15. 15

    Those kids could wind up like HoHan, Mary-Kate, Dana Plato…WHO would want to take that risk ? The history of having kids in the spotlight that early is not good…..they tend to wind up with problems…Just say'n ….



  16. 16

    I agree 100% with her. From the beginning I thought " why on earth are they letting their kids do this ". Most celebs sheild their kids from the spotlight. Jaden is a cute kid but definately has that arrogant look about him now.
    Also, if Will is doing this for the youngest two, why not Trey from his first marriage/relationship?



  17. 17

    She's right.These kids are annoying and not talented.



  18. 18

    Who is she? Shut the fuck up and go away. Bitch.



  19. 19

    She's right. You're just worried about pissing the Smith's off, so you're attacking Terry, too. Those kids are being pimped out. We'll see how they're faring in 10 years. Let's hope they don't go the child star route that most others seem to take.



  20. 20

    Re: perezsuccs – Yes. In all fairness, not all gay men are as flamingly gay as Perez. I am friends with a gay man who can totally pass as straight.



  21. 21

    Will does seem to be doing everything he can to make his children famous. If they have talent then awesome, but even if they don't they'll have daddy there to promote their careers. A lot of celebrities do this.



  22. 22

    I totally agree with Terry, I have been saying this for a while. I use to think they were so cute and adorable but now they just pluck my nerve.



  23. 23

    I still can't believe that Perez went to NYU. I can't picture anybody being so ignorant in their 30's after going to college, in general. I really hope, for his sake, that he is publicly holding her feet to the fire because he's afraid of Will & Jada. That would be the lesser of the two deficiencies. Otherwise, he is really that blind to reality. A) Terry apologized for using 2 words in her rant, not for her general critique of the kids. She never took that back. B) Those kids do give off an air of arrogance like they are so awesome that it doesn't matter that they are still in desperate need of further education (like most kids are). It would be nice of Will & Jada's children could develop themselves into thoughtful, well-educated, humble citizens before entering the Hollywood pool. I have this feeling that we are going to see Willow singing/rapping/whatever-the-hell-you-want-to-call-that-noise-coming-out-of-her-mouth-ing about BMW's and parties and being superior to other girls because she's rich within the next 5-10 years. It's insulting to most of the rest of the country when people with extraordinary amounts of money don't use it to ensure that their children develop into worldly, thoughtful people.



  24. 24

    Why should she have to take it back or watch what she says? She is saying the same thing the rest of the world wants to say to the Smith family, she just has a loud enough voice for it to leave an echo that people can act offended by. I have lost all respect I had for the Smiths in the last couple of years, they are no better than Dina Lohan or Momma Spears…we see how that all ended up.



  25. 25

    Again, Willow Smith always looks like she just let loose one massive, nasty fart……



  26. 26

    Smith is another sell out to the Illuminati,pretty sad it was package deal.



  27. 27

    I THINK SHE WAS RIGHT THESE KIDS ARE SO SPOILED DADDY BUYS THEM WHATEVER THEY WANT >>>ANNIE IS A CLASSIC SO I GUESS COLOR PURPLE WILL BE SEEING JUSTIN BEIBER DOING AA..KUNTA KENTA >>WHY CHANGE A CLASSIC IT REALLY BOTHERS ME HOW IT IS NO LONGER ABOUT TALENT WHEN DADDY BUYS WHATEVER HIS KIDS WANT >>>



  28. 28

    It didn't seem like she was taking it back at all–she was just saying how it's ridiculous that her tweet about the Smiths got more press then when she discusses more serious matters like politics and global issues.
    Don't make something out of nothing…she took responsibility for her insensitive comments, let's move on.



  29. 29

    I agree with her. Will and Jada need to focus on being parents and raising KIDS, not stars. They're way too young for the business.



  30. 30

    she was spot-on the first time.



  31. 31

    Re: catlover – have u ever seen the gay guy that this desperate idiot married? hes such a queen he makes perez look like the most masculine man in the world. and thats saying allot.



  32. 32

    she is right, she shouldnt have to apologize for telling the truth. they are products for their parents..pretty pathetic..perez no more chocolate cake for you fatty



  33. 33

    she was right why did she have ot take it back. DOES ANY ONE LOOK OR LISTEN TO WILLOW. shes already selling sex EWWWWW. her swagger and what not. no kids should have record deals its pointless and she may eventually develop some talent but as is shes just typical nothing great. and far to young to handle hollywood scrutiny.



  34. 34

    Congrats every one on the kid bashing. Who cares if their famous? If you don't like them don't watch. Besides your all jealous your not famous and your spawn isn't either. Just saying.



  35. 35

    Re: the Period – Lmao. No, I haven't seen him. I'll have to check that out now, though. Thanks.



  36. 36

    Re: LikeReally – I don't want to be famous. I sure as hell don't want to be stalked by photographers and annoying "fans". I'd take their money, sure, but not the fame. As for spawn, I don't have any and don't want any. Try again.



  37. 37

    So she is suppose to be afraid of speaking her mind because they are "powerful"? WoW, Honestly your blog wouldn't be where it is today of you were afraid of speaking about the powerful. SMH, You are such a hyprocrite..



  38. 38

    It's a sad day when a person has to take back their opinion because "Society" didn't like it. Perez you don't like that people want to force people to not be gay, so why are people trying to force her to change her opinion. It's her life and her mind.



  39. 39

    WTF no one said anything when Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were on Full House for 12 years. WTF?



  40. 40

    STFU FAT BOY!! U KNOW NOTHING. GETTING TO HAPPY SCRIPT/SCREENPLAY IS ALREADY DONE AND SOLD TO 20TH CENTURY FOX MONTHS AGO. WILL AND JADA HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. SUCH A FAKE ASS PC MORON. YALL KNOW TERRY IS RIGHT. PEEPS HAVE SAYING THAT SHIT ON BLOGOSPHERE FOR AGES. TERRY IS JUST BRAVE ENUFF TO SAY WHAT EVERY1 HAS BEEN SAYING.. FAT BOY KICKED TO THE CURB - AS USUAL.



  41. 41

    I think she was right the first time. Damn spoiled braggetty brat kids, drop their asses off at a shelter and tell them they have to volunteer all day and see what happens.



  42. 42

    Who?



  43. 43

    Have a slice of Cosby cake..how's it taste?



  44. 44

    That little willow smith bugs me. I saw her on a interview and she just came off stupid. Ellen has had some real charming, smart kids on her show who are not famous that came off as so cute, and wow, what a future they will have. The smith kids, not so much. Oh, unless of course your parents buy you fame.



  45. 45

    She's right! They aren't that powerful either, and who gives a shit… they're the ones that look dumb for PIMPING out their kids to Hollywood.



  46. 46

    Re: perezsuccs – There's a lot of people who do, blame the asshole for not being honest with her, not her! She's a very well educated woman who got screwed and right now… none of that pertains to what she's talking about, so piss off.



  47. 47

    Good for her…a voice of reason is like a breath of fresh air! Im proud of her



  48. 48

    She is totally right–the kids are ugly and dress and look like freaks that need a healthy meal–feed them and let them be a kid if they arent too out of wack with real kids now.



  49. 49

    Don't support these movies made to elevate these kids to stars. That stupid hit about someone's hair piece sounds really dreadful !



  50. 50

    What she said was spot on and accurate. She should not have appologized just because the Church of Scientology probably started to harass her. Lets face it, that's probably what happened.



  51. 51

    Don't take it back, girl! You were right!



  52. 52

    She is right though their parents should be ashamed of themselves for selling out their kids like that. Pathetic that they want to simply add money to their bank. Such greedy people.



  53. 53

    She was soooo right! Many are thinking the same thing. Willow can hardly read!!!! This makes me lose respect for the parents.



  54. 54

    i agree with her!!



  55. 55

    Really? No one can have an opinion without risking their career and public image? Not everyone pays attention to every word people say, Perez. Still a hypocrite I see.



  56. 56

    finally sumbody says it like it is u go ms terry



  57. 57

    She makes a very good point! Lots of'em actually. You should stop speaking Perez.. just put up your pictures, what they're about and leave your thoughts out of it :)



  58. 58

    BOOOO TERRY!!!! SAY WHAT YOU MEAN AND MEAN WHAT YOU SAY, YOU'RE A WRITER FOR FUCKS SAKE! AND YOU'RE RIGHT, WILLOW SHOULD BE SINGING "I WHIP MY CHAINS BACK AND FORTH!", AND JADEN KNOWS WILL WOULD "KARATE CHOP HIS ASS" IF DIDN'T GET A JOB SOON. GOD KNOWS NEITHER WILL OR JADA HAVE HAD A HIT IN OVER FIVE YEARS!!!



  59. 59

    Why would she apologiz for saying what she thinks. Besides it is basically true.



  60. 60

    Why should she apologize??? She is right! Jada and Will are pimping their kids. Dragging them onto the red carpet at a very young age, getting Willow a start in the musicbizz, letting their kids star in remakes of classics etc. Get your head out of Wills ass Perez!!!



  61. 61

    You should stand up for what is right no matter what.



  62. 62

    Re: catlover I GET WHAT YOU'RE SAYING DEAR BUT I THINK YOU MISSED THE POINT. YOUR STATEMENT IS PRETTY MUCH LIKE THE LAUGHABLE "SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE GAY … FAT … BLACK…" YOU GET MY DRIFT. GAY FOLK COME IN ALL SIZES SHAPES AND COLORS BUT DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO "PASS" TO BE ACCEPTED. PEREZ IS NOT ONLY A FLAMER BUT HE'S A HATEFUL, SPITEFUL ASSHOLE WITH A MEAN GIRL ATTITUDE. HE'S NO ONE'S BEST FRIEND. AND WHILE I'M ON THE SUBJECT, THOSE TWO KIDS SET MY TEETH ON EDGE.



  63. 63

    SHE IS RIGHT AND THE TRUTH HURTS….



  64. 64

    The kids ARE being pimped. Can you think of a better word? Can you just imagine how spoiled and arrogant these kids are? The worst part of this kind of child-rearing is the sense of entitlement that turns them into A-holes!



  65. 65

    You know, I agree with Terry! From what I've seen on the tube, those kids have been PUSHED toward that crazy Hwood life and weren't given options. Sorry, but I totally see two meltdowns and trips to rehab in their futures…. well, that, or more 'sessions' on the e-meter.



  66. 66

    I agree with her. The "Smiths" are really getting obnoxious. Like Kardashians with a tiny bit more talent….overload!!!!!!!



  67. 67

    i never thought i say this but i agree with perez and some of you are sayin its wrong for them to be doing this but look how young raven symone was when she was in the spotlight now shes made millions off all she did but none of ya were getting on her case.

  68. Rynne says – reply to this


    68

    I think she's absolutely right. I couldn't stand the parents and I can't stand having their kids forced on us all.



  69. 69

    Re: HeartsContent – I agree but look it how well Mary Kate turned out.



  70. 70

    ha, the lady was so right. they're nothing but a ca$h cow….mean while, real artists with mega skillz will never be heard. this is the kind of shit that ruined the recording industry.



  71. 71

    just because they're one of the most "powerful couples" in hollywood, doesn't mean by default everything they do is right and should earn respect. she was completely right— why the hell would you be pimping your kids out so young? no kid should have a hectic job that not even some grown-ups can handle. let them enjoy childhood instead of living through them.



  72. 72

    Why would anyone listen to this old bag of chit who didn't know she was being conned by some gay guy who needed a green card?

    And to all the racist haters who keep bring up the fact that Will Smith financed all this kids project…get the f over it. There have been thousands of black kids passed over roles because of their color and given to white kids. I'm glad Will and Jada are doing this because if not for them there would be only one movie ever made in the history of movies that starred a black child.. Akeelah and the Bee and that toow was produced by black people not racist white hollywood.
