Will Smith: Don’t Compare My Family to the Kardashians!

Will Smith does not appreciate any comparisons between his family and the Kardashians.

The dynamic father-son acting duo known as Will and Jaden Smith are featured on the cover of the latest issue of New York magazine to promote their newest movie After Earth, and Smith reacted strongly to a statement form the interviewer comparing his family to the Kardashians.

The reporter stated that “the Kardashians have treated their fame as a family business,” and asked Jaden Smith — who is rumored to be dating Kylie Jenner — if he saw his family as the same.

“I’m trying to understand,” Jaden responded.

“Don’t,” Will interjects before Jaden can continue. “You know, he’s never had to, to deal with those kinds of questions.”

When the interviewer notices that Will is none too pleased with the comparison, she quickly tries to backtrack and rephrase the question.

“Well, forget the Kardashians,” the interviewer backtracks. “Maybe you could just…”

“So how do you think your life is similar or un-similar to people’s names in Calabasas?” Will responds in a “mimicking” voice.

He then goes on to explain that being one of the biggest movie stars in the world and married to one equally as talented is not quite the same as being a reality star.

“For our family, the entire structure of our life, our home, our business relationships—the entire purpose is for everyone to be able to create in a way that makes them happy. Fame is almost an inconsequential by-product of what we’re really trying to accomplish.

“We are trying to put great things into the world, we’re trying to have fun, and we’re trying to become the greatest versions of ourselves in the process of doing things we love. So the idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us.”

Last night, Ne-Yo and his charity, the Compound Foundation, honored Academy award-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr. and celebrity photographer Johnny Nunez at their 2nd Annual “Fostering A Legacy” Benefit. The private function celebrated the strength and creativity of youth in foster care.

Neyo spoke about this year’s honorees saying,

"I truly admire Louis Gossett Jr. for his bold initiative to adopt his son when he was in need. Johnny Nunez, who has been an advocate of our cause for years and Stuart Snyder, an active supporter of the foundation, are both well-respected individuals who we cannot thank enough. It is only right we honor these extraordinary men at this year’s benefit."

The event was co-hosted by actor/comedian Kevin Hart who had a very successful summer with his film Let Me Explain.

When it comes to party music, the family of Marvin Gaye sees "Blurred Lines" of ownership. On Thursday, Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I. filed suit in California federal court against Marvin Gaye’s family and Bridgeport Music (which owns some of Funkadelic’s compositions) because both of the latter claim "Blurred Lines" stole from their compositions.

So to be clear, Marvin Gaye’s family and Bridgeport Music have made allegations that "Blurred Lines" is very similar to Marvin’s "Got to Give It Up" and Funakedlic’s "Sexy Ways."  In response to that claims, Robin and his crew have filed a lawsuit which seeks to prove that they DID NOT sample the records records and they shouldn’t have to pay any royalties because their "new" composition "reminds" listeners of something else.

THR quotes the lawsuit as saying,

There are no similarities between plaintiffs’ composition and those the claimants allege they own, other than commonplace musical elements.  Plaintiffs created a hit and did it without copying anyone else’s composition.

Sidebar, George Clinton (former leader of Funkadelic) sided with Robin and tweeted, "No sample of #Funkadelic’s ‘Sexy Ways’ in @robinthicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ – yet Armen Boladian thinks so? We support @robinthicke @Pharrell!"

We have to admit, "Blurred Lines" REALLY DOES have that "Got to Give It Up" feel.  But a "feeling" IS NOT a sample….

MAGAZINES: Jada Pinkett Smith REVEALS Why She’ll NEVER Leave Will Smith + Solange TALKS About Her MOVE In BROOKLYN Mag

 photo rbk-jada-pinkett-smith-cover-lgn.jpg

Jada Pinkett Smith covers the latest issue of REDBOOK where she explains why she’ll NEVER leave Will Smith.  Meanwhile, the latest issue of BROOKLYN Magazine features Solange Knowles extolling the virtues of her favorite bourough.  See the highlights and pics inside….

 photo rbk-jada-pinkett-smith-2-lgn.jpg

Try as they might, the tabloids have been "divorcing" and "separating" Will and Jada Pinkett Smith for many years, but in the latest issue of REDBOOK, the actress/tv producer reveals why that will NEVER happen.  In addition to discussing the deep bond she has with Will, Jada talks about special moments with her family and explains the direction she plans to take as a producer on Queen Latifah’s new talk show. Here are the highlights:

On why she’ll never leave her husband Will Smith:

“What is the thing that Will could do to make me not love him? That would make me abandon him? I can’t think of one. I’m sorry. Except if he did something bad to the kids – now we’ve got a problem.”

On magical moments with her family:

“We tend to find magic in the mundane. Picking Willow up from her girlfriend’s house at 9:30PM, and enjoying that ride together, then stopping at 7-Eleven to get some ice cream as a family.”

On why she ignores negative gossip:

“I have been affected by gossip and I know people who have been too. I’ve seen marriages destroyed by gossip. It is cruel. At the end of the day, all that matters is: Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? That is it, baby.”

On producing The Queen Latifah Show

"It will be a cross between Oprah and Ellen — not serious but heartfelt…to help execute this idea for such an amazing artist is really pleasing. I’m able to be creative on a whole different level."

Jada’s issue of REDBOOK hit the newsstands on June 11.

For the summer 2013 issue of BROOKLYN Magazine, Solange Knowles discusses her life as a Brooklynite from the car pools and birthday parties, to hanging out with Beyonce and Jay-Z in Williamsburg.  

 photo 1.jpg

Solange said the best thing about being in BK was that it allows her to be near her family (whom live in Manhattan).  

“My parents are here, my sister is here, my cousin is here, all my friends are here. We really wanted Julez to have the experience that we had growing up—being able to drop in on his aunt’s house and being able to hang out with Grandma and see our friends and have that experience of actually having a soccer game and having family show up. It’s such a beautiful feeling, but also having that village is a necessary reality.”

 photo 3.jpg

The TRUE singer also talked about the impact of BK on her music.

“I’m working on my next record. I started writing about three months ago. I’ve been so lucky to meet such wonderful and beautiful inspiring friends, and we have all these experiences that only could have happened here. Even last night we all went to see Flying Lotus and Erykah Badu at Music Hall of Williamsburg and then we all went over to my studio in Red Hook and we just hung out till literally the sun came up and recorded and talked. They inspire me. Just having that energy around is so important.”

Jada used her Facebook page to defend Beyonce Knowles, whom was criticized for her choice of outfit during the Chime For Change concert.  In her post, Jada questioned a woman’s right to possess her own body and assert her power.  She wrote….

Whose body is this anyway?

There was some backlash about the performance outfits for the Chime concert. Since a woman’s body has been deeply connected to sin, it’s easy to forget all the power and beauty her body and sexuality possesses. Yes, with this power comes great responsibility, but how was Beyonce’s tasteful outfit irresponsible? Here is the problem I see, a woman’s body is too much power for one woman to have, even Beyonce. Although we see corporations exploit this power through women and girls, with far less clothing on than Beyonce, to sell their products, do we protest? But hey, a woman has to be in check, right? Know her position since we’ve all been taught that a powerful woman is dangerous and that a powerful man makes the world go round. Here’s the deal… soon the reign of shame on a woman’s body and her control of it will end. She will be autonomous. For she can’t truly be free without it. And oh boy…what a different world this place will be…when she is free.

What do you think about Jada’s post?

Usher CONFIRMS He’s RETURNING To “The Voice” + Will Smith EXPLAINS Why “The Smiths” ARE NOT Like “The Kardashians”

 photo article-2332418-1A0B5CE8000005DC-633_634x546.jpg 

Pop star Usher confirmed his return to "The Voice" will Ellen Degeneres. Get the deets on his return inside and see why Will Smith says he and his family are not like the fame-seeking Kardashians.

 

During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" Usher answered the question many in the tv industry have been posing, "Will he return to "The Voice"? When asked about his status as a judge on the hit program, he told Ellen, ‘I plan on coming back.’

But in the meantime, he revealed that he’s focusing on his role as boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in the upcoming film Hands of Stone.

Ellen also questioned him about his troubled protege, Justin Bieber. When asked about the young pop star’s woes, Usher said,

"…I think all of us in some way have humble beginnings that pan out to be incredible and we hope…that he’ll continue to just mature but you know in this days age of social media. There is no privacy and that kind of trail and elimination period is kind of done in front of a camera. I am hoping for the best. I don’t look at as a negative though. I look at it as a teenager. A teenager having to live his life in front of a camera. Imagine if you had to do that as a teenager."

When asked if he remains in contact with Justin, he told Ellen, ‘Obviously when I can be of help I do so. Reach out and stay connected.’  Maybe he should reach out and take Justin’s toys (meaning his cars and segways) from him too.

Awww like daddy like son.

In an interview with NY Magazine to promote After Earth, his upcoming action film with son Jaden Smith, Will Smith seemed to take issue with a comparison being drawn between the Smiths and the Kardashians.  Though both families are very friendly, with both Willow and Jaden spotted hanging out with the younger siblings of the Kardashian clan, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Will explained that the Smiths don’t seek out fame. 

"For our family, the entire structure of our life, our home, our business relationships—the entire purpose is for everyone to be able to create in a way that makes them happy.

‘Fame is almost an inconsequential by-product of what we’re really trying to accomplish,’ explained the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air star.
‘We are trying to put great things into the world, we’re trying to have fun, and we’re trying to become the greatest versions of ourselves in the process of doing things we love.  So the idea of fame or exploitation or orchestrating the media is sometimes even less than desirable for us."

So that clearly means we’ll never see the Smiths doing a reality show!  But he doesn’t mindthe kids being beasties with the likes of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.  And for people who think that Will and Jada are pushing the younger Smiths towards careers in Hollywood…he says that’s not true.

‘It may seem like we have pushed our kids into the business, but that is absolutely insane,’ he said. ‘I would never, ever, push somebody to have their face on a poster that’s going be everywhere in the world."

You catch Will and Jaden in After Earth when it hits theaters on May 31st.

SPOTTED: Willow Smith Spends The Day With Kylie Jenner In NYC

 photo spl551993_001_zps5dd363be.jpg

The young Smith clan seem to have gotten tight with the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.  Willow Smith was spotted exiting her hotel today in NYC with Kylie Jenner (striped hat) after a full day of…nope, not school on this school day….shopping and lunching.

 

Pics inside…

Must be nice to be 12-years-old and the heiress to a Hollywood empire.  Basically, it must be nice to be Willow Smith.  She doesn’t have to spend her Tuesdays (or any days for that matter) during the school year in anybody’s math class.  She’s chillaxin’ in New York City shopping at Intermix for hours with reality heiresses like Kendall and Kylie Jenner.

 photo spl551993_007_zps6093d66b.jpg

Willow whipped her hair around Trump Soho hotel with good friend Kylie who was likely in town to do some promo with her family for their new season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."  Willow’s big bro Jaden was spotted dining out with Kylie as well last week.

Forget Algebra….promoting reality shows and shopping with fellow Hollywood heirs take precedence.  And pre-teens in classrooms everywhere are probably salivating at the thought.

 

 

 photo spl551987_001_zps8747841e.jpg

Mom Jada was spotted looking cute as usual in a satin look and hot wedged sandals leaving the hotel with the girls as well.  We’re told the group of friends hit up Intermix for a few hours, then grabbed some grub and chilled out at their hotel.  Must be nice…

 

The Randomness:

ACROSS THE POND: Jaden Smith DINES OUT With Selena Gomez, JOINS Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff For Trey’s DJ Debut

Jaden Smith, Selena Gomez, Alfonso Ribeiro and DJ Jazzy Jeff all joined Will Smith in London to mark Trey Smith’s UK debut on the club scene.  See pics from their night out inside…

After Earth star Jaden Smith was spotted out to dinner with Selena Gomez, where they dined at the London hotspot Hakkasan.

Jaden took a very protective stance as he extended his arm to shield Selena from the aggressive paparazzi clamoring to take their picture.

 photo purp5.jpg

Jaden pulled double duty while in the UK, as he and his dad, Will, are doing international press junkets for their film After Earth (June 7th) and they supported Trey Smith during his club debut.

 

Later that night…

The British Press captured a mini-reunion of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" as Will Smith was joined by former co-stars Alfonso Ribeiro (and wife Robin) and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

The fellas were on their way into Boujis Night Club to witness the UK debut of DJ Trey Smith (Will’s oldest son).

 photo WillSmithBoujisNightclubwentsupportTreysWEdPTB4uVol.jpg 

Will, who’s also doing press for After Earth, interviewed with The Alchemist, where he talked about his role in After Earth and how the relationship between he and Jaden’s character is similar to their real life father/son dynamic.

It was funny because my character is this huge general and a great warrior, and his son is trying to follow in his footsteps so it was similar in that sense. I think because we got to talk about our characters, Cypher and Kitai, we were really talking about Will and Jaden. We had plenty of conversations about things like discipline and why Cypher felt like it was such a necessity to be harder on Kitai than even on full-grown rangers. The concept of life and death is what comes into play as a father. Whether you are watching basketball or washing the dishes, in the mind of a warrior father, everything is life or death. The way you wash those dishes, the way you clean your room, the way you handle your schoolwork, one day its going to come back in a life or death scenario.

 photo TreySmitharrivesBoujisnightclubfirstDYj4nP00gv3l.jpg  

But last night….everyone’s attention was focus on Trey.

 photo TreySmitharrivesBoujisnightclubfirstYz341yEXb3Jl.jpg    

Looking very dapper in a slim fitted dark suit, Trey posed for pics and greeted fans as he prepared to do his first DJ set in the UK.

 photo purp2.jpg 

Trey’s role in the entertainment business makes perfect sense, as Will explained to The Alchemist, he wanted all of his children to be in the "family business."

"I grew up in a family business so my father, my mother and all my brothers and sisters worked in the family business, so that’s really the only way I know how to parent."

 photo purp12.jpg

 photo purp11.jpg

And as Jaden and Willow make their mark in the entertainment world, Trey seems like he’s ready to take his place in the spotlight as well.  And he has hip hop legend DJ Jazzy Jeff alongside him as he masters the art of the DJ!

Will and Jaden Smith were joined by DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro for an improptu "Fresh Prince" reunion with freestyle rapping and the "Carlton Banks" dance in full effect.  Watch the fun inside and see the father and son "bend it like Beckham" at the UEFA’s Champions Festival.

During their After Earth press tour through Europe, Will and Jaden Smith stopped by the popular UK chat fest " The Graham Norton Show" where Jaden and Will did a surprise performance.

While discussing his own skills as an MC, Will gushed about Jaden’s talent.  The talks led to Jaden doing an impromptu freestyle of his "Hello" single.

After Jaden’s freestyle, Will walked to the stage and revealed DJ Jazzy Jeff behind the turntables.  He then broke out into the "Fresh Prince" theme song being joined by Alfonso Ribeiro.  As the crowd went wild, Will and Alfonso broke out into the "Carlton Banks" dance (along with Jaden) before ending with a crowd-pleasing group dance to the Sugar Hill Gang’s "Apache (Jump On It)"

The segment is a must-see moment for any fan of "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air".
