Will Smith Also Boycotted The 1989 Grammys Before Skipping Out On This Year's Oscars! Watch His Vintage Interview!

no title

History repeats itself!

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will not be attending the Oscars this year to protest the lack of diversity in the Academy's nominations.

It seemed that the Concussion star was following his wife's lead after he joined her call to boycott this year's ceremony — but Jada actually took a page out of her husband's playbook!

Back in 1989, the Fresh Prince refused to attend at the Grammys for its lack of integration!

That year, the ceremony included a rap performance category for the first time — and nominated Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff for their hit Parents Just Don't Understand.

While that historic year was a huge step towards making rap music mainstream, that particular segment of the show wasn't going to be televised!

In an old interview Entertainment Tonight dug up from its archives, the hip-hop duo explained why they thought the design of the show was "a slap in the face."

It's sad to see that other sectors of the industry haven't progressed that much a quarter of a century later!

Fresh Prince Forever! Will Smith Confirms To Ellen DeGeneres That He's Going On Tour With DJ Jazzy Jeff!

no title

It looks like Will Smith is definitely going back to his hip-hop roots with the help of an old friend!

Last month, the Fresh Prince announced he was going on tour with special guest DJ Jazzy Jeff — Smith's musical counterpart from their days as the hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince!

Back in the '80s, the Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble performers dropped five albums before taking a hiatus in 1993 after the success of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air!

On Thursday's Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Concussion star confirmed that he and Jazzy would be reuniting on stage in his upcoming tour to perform their old hits — as well as some NEW music! AH-Mazing!

The rapper said his biggest reason for the nostalgic reunion is because the duo "never actually had a chance" to do a full tour back in the day — better late than never, we suppose!

Check out the video (below) to get the full deets!
