Jada Pinkett Smith Gossip
Jada Pinkett Smith gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Jada Pinkett Smith was one of the first and loudest critics of the Academy after the Oscar nominations were announced last Thursday. As you know, Will Smith was campaigning hard for a nomination for his performance in Concussion and she’s been encouraging people to boycott the Oscars. That call for boycott was seconded by Spike Lee. Full Story

I want not to be impressed by these two. So much of what they are and do is so packagey and about the brand and come on, nobody is that in love all the time. I’m not even getting into the deep rumours or anything like that, just on a basic day-to-day level, sometimes someone’s watch strap catches a hair on your arm and it makes you irrationally furious, and they never have that.

The cast of Magic Mike XXL was in Miami yesterday promoting the movie. They surprised the audience at one of the screenings too, showing up for some bump and grind. As you can see, Channing Tatum, the big star, the main event, got his ass in on some action too. When I was looking at these shots and reading about the event, I thought about Marky Mark. Full Story
Charlie XCX is friendly with Taylor Swift, and here she is hanging with Rita Ora, who dated Calvin Harris (Taylor’s current boyfriend). Rita recently gave an interview and talked about Harris not having her back, and she is in the upcoming Bitch I’m Madonna video. Rita loves drama. She wants it so badly. Full Story

Jada Pinkett Smith went on Howard Stern this week and most of the coverage has been about what she said about her marriage and the word “open”. She said she’s not his “watcher”. That she trusts him. That they have a great relationship. And, yeah, he’s attracted to other women but he loves her and he’s mature. Full Story

I wrote yesterday in the open about Matthew McConaughey not returning for the Magic Mike sequel and wondered whether or not Channing Tatum could carry it with Matt Bomer and Joe Meatball supporting him.
Deadline is reporting that Jada Pinkett Smith is in talks to join the cast as the owner of a strip club. It’s a role that was initially meant for a man. I like where we’re going here. I like the chemistry that can potentially come from this with Tatum having to play off a woman who can challenge him. Because most of us seem to agree that giving Meatball more lines wasn’t going to do it.
Here’s Jada earlier this week at the Gotham premiere.
Have a great weekend! And if you’re in Halifax, see you at Word On The Street on Sunday! I’ll be at Wonderful Words at 4pm

There was some pink at the Oscars…and all of it was sh-t, but the worst of the sh-t was Jada Pinkett Smith. It’s Versace. I feel like we’ve seen it before. Or maybe it’s because it looks like what Sofia Vergara wears over and over and over again. I hate it. I hate the colour, I hate the material, and I especially hate the way the sweep over the shoulder goes all the way down her back. Full Story
Well, there might be one. But it probably won’t be the Smiths. Here are Will and Jada at LAX yesterday leaving for Dubai, all smiles. There have been rumours for months that these two are done, that Jada’s been unhappy and singing songs about leaving him, and that a split is imminent. Maybe…eventually? But not in 2013. Full Story
