Jada Pinkett Smith On Daughter Willow's Controversial Photo: "Don't Pollute Something That's Not Dirty"

jada pinkett smith on daughter willows controversial photo

At the time - there was SO much controversy over that pic!

And although most have moved on - Jada Pinkett-Smith is still mad that it was ever an issue in the first place!

The mother of Willow Smith recently was talking to the website Net-a-Porter when the controversial photo, which featured the 13-year-old on a bed with the 20-year-old shirtless former Hannah Montana star Moises Arias, was brought up again.

Here's what Jada said about that:

"Just don't pollute something that's not dirty. It's really tough. I feel like the connection to the value of women on a bigger scale has decreased tremendously. Even though you look and go, ‘Women have so many opportunities,' it's like, ‘Yeah, but at what cost?' Are women valued for being women, or are women valued when they have more masculine qualities? Men and women encompass both female and masculine energies, but it seems like when the feminine is present, it's not respected."

Jada also revealed what she wishes for her children, and how she tries to let them be themselves without TOO much interference from her. She said:

"I want my kids to be happy and I want them to be themselves. I was saying to a friend the other day, ‘Remember, our kids are not us.' They're not. Sometimes we're trying to fix things that happened to us or projecting [onto them], and that's a terrible, terrible trap."

Seems like Jada has got everything under control!

It also definitely appears that Jada has cooled down from her initial anger over the controversy surrounding the photos, but it sounds like she'll never forget the backlash her daughter was subjected to.

Although one thing we are pretty sure of is that Moises Arias won't be taking any more shirtless photos with the Smith family anytime soon!

    Oh please! They did for the attention. And even joked about it afterwards. Get over what other people thinks and just pay attention to you kids. Geez!

    She tries to change the subject. That photo has nothing to do with women's opportunities! Willow is not a woman - she is a child. A child who spends a lot of time with a grown man. It wasn't a dirty photo, but it does raise concerns about why a grown man is friends with children.

    For a mother who isn't bothered by what her "child" is doing, she surely does protest a lot. If she had ignored all this , people wouldn't still be talking about it. She just keeps stirring up the story…guess they need the publicity.

    She is so damn ignorant. She doesn't parent…period. She's the cool hot friend.
