All the major awards at the Oscars will be given to Whites only. It is the second year in a row that Blacks and other minority actors are pushed to the side, their hard work not even acknowledge by the Oscar voters. So Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee have both decided that if the Oscars cannot recognize the works of other talents of other race, then they will not recognize the Oscars.
But the Oscars will at least have one black person in attendance. Chris Rock is set to provide the entertainment.
Again, she is 61 years old!
The 43 year old Jada posted the picture of her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, a few days ago, saying, “Willow took this shot of her grandmother, my mother, emerging from the ocean today. She is 61! I wanna be her when I grow up:) Happy Friday… J.”
Lol… I wanna be like her too Jada. All I can say is WOW!
Only a matter of time. With all the sexually suggestive pictures of the couple’s kids blasting the internet, pictures showing the Smith’s children in somewhat awkward positions with adults, it was like daring Child Protective Services to investigate.
Well, Child Protective Services are investigating.
The Los Angeles Department of Children & Family Services has reportedly opened an investigation into an incident involving a controversial photo of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter, Willow Smith, says Radar Online.
“The investigation was formally opened last week and is being taken very seriously by the department,” a source told Radar. “Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have been extremely cooperative with officials. Of course, they aren’t happy that their parenting skills are under scrutiny, but they understand.”
20-year-old actor Moises Arias posted an image on Instagram of himself in bed with Willow Smith. Willow Smith can be seen wearing jeans and a shirt in the black and white image while Arias is shirtless with his lower half not fully visible. After he posted the photo, the image cause quite the uproar with many drawing conclusions about the extent of the pair’s relationship. Arias is a family friend of the Smiths and very close friend to Willow’s brother, Jaden Smith.
Jada Pinkett Smith spoke out at photographers at LAX days after the controversy began, telling them that there was nothing provocative about the image and people took the photo out of context.
“Here’s the deal,” Jada Pinkett Smith said on May 7. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
According to Radar’s source, social workers will also speak separately with Willow about the incident.
The photo below was posted to 20-year-old actor, Moises Arias’ Tumblr and Instagram pages. The photo shows a shirtless Moises and 13-year-old Willow Smith in a bed together. Needless to say, a controversy erupted as the online world expressed their disapproval of the suggestive nature of the photo.
Everyone that is, except Willow’s mother Jada Pinkett-Smith. Reached today for comment, Jada couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about and insisted that the photo was nothing more than innocent.
“Here’s the deal,” she told the paparazzi via TMZ Wednesday at LAX Airport.
“There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation.”
“You guys are projecting your trash onto it,” she continued.
“You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
“When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.”

How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual
essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.
I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection.
There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer.
He doesn’t recognize that the [creation] of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize.
He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.
When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.
Power and control will NEVER outweigh love.
May we all find our way.

A few days ago, an article was written asking the question why are we so fascinated with celebrities. The author made the point that celebrities were just like us, but on a much larger scale, and he wanted to know why the public continuously place these people on pedestals, especially when they don’t belong on there.
And after that question was asked, we read today that Jada Smith has basically given her hubby a pass if he ever felt the need to cheat on her. According to Mrs Smith, Will is his own man and can do whatever he wants.
Hey, whatever works. Jada Pinkett-Smith addressed a longstanding rumor about her 16-year marriage to Will Smith** in a new interview with HuffPost Live: That she and Will, 44, have an open relationship.
“No, I think that people get that idea because Will and I are very relaxed with one another,” replied the actress and mother of actor-singers Willow**, 12, and Jaden, 14. The 41-year-old star then continued of the “persistent” rumor: “But I’ve always told Will: You can do whatever you want as long as you can look at yourself in the mirror and be okay,” she said, without going into further specifics.
“Because at the end of the day, Will is his own man,” she said of the Men in Black star. “I’m here as his partner, but he is his own man. He has to decide who he wants to be and that’s not for me to do for him,” she said, adding: “Or vice versa.”
The couple have battled more than one false report of an imminent divorce, most memorably in summer 2011, when the couple, who wed in 1997, slammed split rumors — and talk that Pinkett Smith had an affair with HawthoRN costar Marc Anthony** during his marriage to Jennifer Lopez.
