Will Smith News Archive
But in the rambling sit down, Yeezy also managed to criticize the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences — because he thinks Keeping Up With The Kardashians should have won "plenty of Emmys by now."
Speaking with fashion website SHOWstudio, the superstar said:
Will Smith Is Officially Making New Music AND Planning A Tour! Find Out Why He Took A Decade-Long Break!
Will Smith really is back in the music scene after SO long!
Yes, just recently he was featured on the remix of Colombian band Bomba Estéreo's song Fiesta, but now we're talking about new stuff of his OWN!
The 47-year-old hasn't dropped an album in a full decade, and this new collaboration was the first song he was on — either solo or featured — since 2005.
But now, it turns out the actor is going to Switch back to his rap roots!
On Monday, the Suicide Squad star revealed that not only has he been Gettin' Jiggy wit It in the studio, he's already recorded a LOT of tracks, saying:
"I'm pretty much poppin' in the studio everyday and I'm looking for artists to collaborate with. I've probably recorded 30 songs. I have six or seven that I really like."
Does this mean a new album is on the way??? We've been craving this for the past ten years, but Will explains it hasn't been easy to get back into songwriting:
Will Smith may be a Hollywood star, but he started his career off in music — and apparently he's decided to go back to his roots!
The 47-year-old actor/rapper collaborated with Columbian band Bomba Estéreo for a remix of one of their songs — Fiesta (Remix) — and it's quite the hot track (above)!
This all came about when Will was in Columbia on a recent trip, where he heard the band and told them he wanted to work with them. So OF COURSE they took him up on it!
Not only is this a return to music for the Fresh Prince, but he surprises us by mixing some Spanish into his lyrics — and also uncharacteristically curses in a verse!
Fingers crossed that we'll be getting some more turns from Will!
Will Smith may be having a happy birthday, but he's crushing everyone else's birthday dreams!
It's been reported that Sony is developing Men In Black 4 — but the Suicide Squad star will NOT be in it!
In a recent interview, producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald revealed that the sci-fi comedy franchise will see new life! Parkes said:
"We're in the middle of it. It's very active."
But when asked if Smith would be reprising his famous role of Agent J, Parkes said:
"Most likely no."
Men In Black with no Agent J??
We have a feeling that a new lead will be chosen to suit up in the dapper black suit — because according to the producers, the new film "will be reinvented as a trilogy!"
AH-mazing news!! (Depending on your thoughts about sequels. LOLz!)

The Smiths really know how to wish each other a happy birthday!
The b-day message is so sweet and funny that it rivals the shout out Will gave Jada for her birthday earlier this month.
Check out Pinkett's cute note (below)!
Will Smith Proves His Dedication To Jada Pinkett Smith In A Particularly Gush-Worthy Post For Her 44th Birthday!
On Friday, the Men in Black actor took to Facebook to share a sweet message about his wife on her 44th birthday.
Wait. How is the brunette beauty now 44-years-old?! She looks AH-Mazing!
Anywho, not only did the Gettin' Jiggy Wit It rapper share an adorable throwback snap, but he also once again shut down any rumors that he had eyes for anyone but his lady love.
Making a movie based on true events can be a real headache!
Will Smith is starring in the upcoming sports drama Concussion, which tells the true story of one of the doctors who discovered the link between football players' major health problems and the repeated blows they took in games.
The film's main antagonist is the NFL, who tries to cover up the controversy and deny all accountability.
But emails leaked in the Sony hack reveal that the studio might have softened the film to avoid making a real life enemy out of one of the most powerful enterprises in the nation!
In the reported emails, Sony executives, Smith's team, and director Peter Landesman discussed changing the script to make it seem like it wasn't purposefully bashing the league.
Dwight Caines, head of Sony's marketing, discussed how they would position the film back in August 2014, writing:
