Jada Pinkett Smith Wanted To Be A Mom Rockstar

Do remember a band called Wicked Wisdom? C'mon! Of course you do! Remember, "Something inside of meeeee is … PISSED!" Remember Jada Pinkett Smith's wild mane of hair whipping back and forth before Willow was even a twinkle in her eye?! No? Yes? Eh, it doesn't matter.

The point is, Jada was once a rocking babe with a rocking band, until she became a rocking mom with a rocking brood to raise. Jada reveals in a new interview that it was hard to make the sacrifice of her music career for her kids, explaining:

"I had to make choices. Believe me, I would still be on the road with my band Wicked Wisdom, and making as many movies as I can a year, and doing all sort of things if I didn't have the responsibility of a family."

Don't be mistaken though. She isn't bitter. In fact, she couldn't be prouder of all the accomplishments of her family, especially her kids. She says:

"But I have children with their own talents and dreams, and I know I have to be standing next to them for that journey … It still makes me nervous that they're part of something that isn't totally real, but it's up to Will and me to teach them what's real and what's not."

So far, we think you guys are doing a fantastic job! And who knows? You're still young! Once the kids are teenagers, maybe you'll all tour together! Willow and you could have a joint tour! Wouldn't that be fun?!

P.S. - We couldn't resist!

    Now she's a Stepford wife raising the next generation of programmed Illuminati slaves.



  2. 2

    She's a stage mom pimping out her kids instead. It's frightening.



  3. 3

    Is she living vicariously through her daughter? I disagree about their fantastic job of parenting. Having her children working at such a young age and pushing education to the side is terrible. Even worse is buying their kids careers. The kids don't have to work there way up, no auditions, no rejections. They are setting their kids up to be narcissists, and when they aren't popular, it will hit them very hard.



  4. 4

    I wonder how long it will be before subliminal Scientology messages are discovered in their kids' song lyrics.

    If she had a 9 inch cock, Will Smith would be the happiest man on the planet.

    HAHAHAHAHAH! She makes herself sound like she was Stevie Nicks, Courtney Love or something! BITCH PLEEEAAAASSEE! You are a great looking, minimally talented actress, who got so lucky and married a man who is extremely successful. His power and influence in the industry is the only reason, why, you are not in the Where Are They Now, "Different World" article of People Magazine.

    Ha, uhhhhhhh…. reallly glad she had kids. ; )



  8. 8

    Aren't her children being home schooled or in a school they "founded"? What kind of life could they possibly have outside of all the material crap (which doesn't suck don't get me wrong)



  9. 9

    Her band sucked, anyway . . . Plus, I can vividly remember her wearing a T-shirt in which she showed all of her stretch marks! Nasty!!



  10. 10

    she is an excellent mother! she looks great too for her age



  11. 11

    Disgusting child pimping/ whoring "Mommie Dearest". Not enough words for disgusting. Hideous. Shameless. Rancid.



  12. 12

    Instead she gave birth to two obnoxious brats.



  13. 13

    That entire family is made up of pompous, over-paid, self-congratulatory, exploitative, self-aggrandizing ass-hats. I hope they move to Europe with Gweneth.
    Love,

    I find Jada and Will to be narcissistic, pretentious, self-important, opportunistic, egocentric, and despicable. CLEARLY they're projecting their hopes and their desires unto their children which violates one of the cardinal rules of parenting - Let your children live out THEIR dreams, not yours. Also, when your trailer takes up a whole city block just give up on being taken seriously as an ACTOR.

    I saw her performance, once, it was ghastly. She is delusional, there was no mainstream audience for her ravings and screams. All I could think while I watched was "Yikes!" It is clear that Will is influencing Willow's music.



  16. 16

    I was dumb enough to have actually bought that piss poor CD she put out with Wicked Wisdom, I listened to it once hated it, used it as a coaster. She didn't give up her music career for her kids, she gave up her career because she sucked. I don't think vocally she was that bad but it was just the style of singing she tried to do, she just sounded ridiculous. It was like listening to a pissed off kitten yell.

    What a crock of bullshit!!!

    Her story mirrors that of most parents everywhere.
