Willow Smith Blossoms in V Magazine and Karl Lagerfeld

willow-smith-300x400

She’s already done much more than your average teenager… starlet, like releasing a hit single Whip My Hair, performing at The White House and actually turning down a role in the upcoming remake of Annie, produced by her dad Will Smith and Jay-Z.

But for us, the coolest so far is her spread in V Magazine. 

The eclectic-ness that is Willow Smith was portrayed by none other than Karl Lagerfeld. 

In her interview she says,

 

“I just wanted to chill, and be at home, and decompress, and just find out what I wanna do and where I stand on this planet, with the little tiny place we have.”

When asked about her style, she replied,

“I can never tell what I’m gonna wear,” Willow explained on her ever-changing style. “I kind of just put on whatever feels right. Sometimes that’s Converse and a T-shirt, sometimes it’s Givenchy heels and leather pants.”

Foxx and Washington talk Brutality and Fun on the set of new Tarrantino Movie

The cast of the most anticipated film of the year attended the Comic-Con on last Saturday to promote Django Unchained. Tarrantino wrote the film for Will Smith, but the actor soon had to step down because of other projects.  Starring Jamie Foxx and Kerry Washington,  the movie also includes  Leonardo diCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson and others.

In the film, Foxx plays a freed slave seeking violent revenge on the white man that has kidnapped his wife (Washington.)

In a recent interview with Huffington Post Jamie and Kerry tell us about the history of the film and working with Tarrantino, whom Jamie says is “hip hop.” He also talks about how Tarrantino let the cast take shots (of liquor) on the set.

This movie definiteley sounds like it’s Oscar bound. Jamie even jokes about how if there was a “Black Oscars,” he’d do everything black.

the cast at promo event

You’ve got to check out these great snippets.

With an intense movie like this, does it help that you two have worked together before?

Foxx: In this movie there are times when we had to go places … Kerry, to me, is the most courageous in the film because she’s the woman. When you see things being done to men, that’s one thing. When it’s done to a woman, when Kerry has to take lashes and she asks to be hit with a whip — those types of things, if we didn’t have a connection, it would be tough to get through. We have a connection, so we can talk about where we want to go or what she has to go through. We had to go places, you know? To be in a situation in which she’s compromised by these men … so, without that connection, it would have been tough.

Not for the faint hearted, “Django” will have some very brutal scenes.

Washington: Yeah, we shot in an actual slave plantation. So, that was the other thing. You’re there, hearing this sound of a whip and flesh. And hundreds of years ago, that’s the sound that echoed through that alley. And this is not a once in a lifetime experience — this isn’t Joan of Arc — this was a daily practice used to subjugate and keep them down. You know, one of the things that is so incredible about the experience of making the film is that this is a part of history that we don’t want to deal with. We don’t want to talk about it. So, we’ve never dealt with the brutality of this part of American history in this way. And it’s one thing to not even want to talk about it, but to actually have to see it — to go there — has been hard.

Washington: Why we had to go there is because this is a film about a hero. This is about a man who at a time when people are only considered three-fifths of a human being, so believes in his own humanity — and the humanity of his woman — that he goes across the country and into the depths of hell to rescue her. To honor their love for each other. That heroism, him facing all of that, doesn’t mean anything if we don’t represent the brutality of what he’s coming out of. So we had to go to all of these dark places. So him saving her really means something so we understand what the stakes were.

At the panel, Jamie made a statement that, “We all have egos.” This script was famously written for Will Smith. At any point did your ego not like that you weren’t the first choice?

Foxx: No, man. Are you kidding me? [Laughs]

Well, you are the one with the Oscar.

Foxx: To be honest with you, I really think that things happen for a reason. I think if Will would have done it, it would have been fantastic. You know, it didn’t work out. He was doing other things. Will also called me and said, “This is the part to be in.” He really loved the script. Look, you get the chance to work with Quentin Tarantino, Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz — you have to be a part of that. That’s the other thing, too. Sometime your ego can get you out of sh-t. It can have your ass sitting there and thinking you’re all this, meanwhile the world is going past you. It’s really about art. Cinema. Whether they paid us or not, we want to be there. You want to be there with these people.

What’s the one biggest difference working on a set with Quentin Tarantino? As in, “OK, that’s different.”

Foxx: He’ll crack a joke, man, and it will permeate through the whole place. He’s playing music, he’s dancing. Every 100th roll we’d do a shot.

Wait, really?

Foxx: Yeah, man. We’d have the chains on, “Pour that tequila!”

Washington: [Laughing] And at the same time, even he was changed by this subject matter. He was always playing music, but, on those days we were in Oak Alley with the whipping, the only music was gospel, morning to night. But the difference working with him is that it’s about loving your job.

Have either of you been in a movie with this much hype? I mean, “Ray” is a great movie, but no one lined up for footage of it months before it came out. Can the anticipation be a bad thing, expectations-wise?

Washington: It doesn’t matter. You never know if people are going to respond to anything. So, you can’t get attached to that part of it. The weird thing for me has been talking about it when we’re not done shooting it. That’s been the hard part. We’re still in it and it’s still evolving. We’re talking about scenes that we haven’t even shot yet.

How much more shooting is left?

Washington: Another week of shooting.

In the footage, Jamie is wearing a very elaborate blue outfit. Where did that come from?

Foxx: That’s my sh-t. That’s my sh-t. Nah, but you’ll see. Look, when we’re talking about this scene, at first it was a different way — Christoph picked the outfit. I said, “No. If he’s a slave and never had clothes, let him pick his clothes. And he’s going to pick the colors.” That “new money” sh-t. Any black person, any time we get some sh-t … like, I used to say this; I used to say this at the black Oscars, “Why are we at the black Oscars with Triscuits and Ritz crackers on the table? When you all know you should have some fried chicken and some potatoes and some red soda.” I said, “I’d do everything black.” If I get a 500 Mercedes Benz, I can’t drive it until I get the rims. Or get the tint on there — the right tint, too. There’s a gradual tint that you go through…

Washington: [Laughing] The gradual but illegal tint.

Foxx: Exactly. Then I say, “I’ve got to get the doom.” And people are like, doom? I say, “You all don’t know what doom is? You black people don’t know what doom is?” “What is doom, Jamie?” [Singing] “Doom, doom, da doom, doom.” So I told them, “I’m going to pick that blue outfit because that’s my doom.” And it works.

Hollywood Goodies!!

Will Smith Working on Cain & Abel Movie?

Critics are sceptic that the movie will ever take place, by rumors are circulating that Will wants to direct the film of one of the Bible’s most known stories. Sources say The Redemption of Cain is in development at Sony Pictures. Maybe this movie is the reason Will pulled out of staring in Quentin Tarrantino’s last film Django Unchained.

Naomi Campbell Gets Reality Show; Casting Call Coming to Your Area

Notorious supermodel Naomi Campbell is  hosting two open calls in New York City and Los Angeles this month to find fresh new faces to compete in her new model competition reality show The Face. “… the winner will become the face of a “major national brand…” says Campbell. Unfortunately, the 42-year-old supermodel isn’t scheduled to be present at either of the auditions.

Rapper DMX Hospitalized After Accident

Jimmie Walker is no Obama Fan

Good Timeslegeng Jimmie Walker has no problem with expressing his dislike of President Barack Obama. In an interview with Bill O’Reilly (of course) the comic admitted,

“Barack Obama is more like a Tony Roberts type of guy…”You feel real good and happy and everything and then you go home and there’s a foreclosure sign on your door,” Walker said. “And you just go, ‘Wait a minute. I just had this great meeting with this guy. He made me feel real good.’ And I don’t think he’s a bad guy. I don’t think he’s a good guy for the job we have to do.” When O’Reilly asked Walker if he gets backlash from African American fans he said, “Sometimes even a brother, you have to let him go.” As if we care, TMZ should hunt down Todd Bridges and get his two cents.

Will the “Hollywood Exes” Keep it Classy on the new VH1 Show?

Just when you were about to feel a void of drama and fabulousness from your VH1 line-up. Don’t you fret!! The network is about to bring it’s most anticipated (and maybe even controversial) reality series yet.

Hollywood Exes follows five beautiful celebrity ex-wives as they maintain and pursue happy lives without their former husbands.

Nicole Murphy (ex of Eddie Murphy,) Andrea Kelly (ex of R. Kelly,) Jessica Canseco ( ex of Jose Canseco,) Sheree Fletcher (ex of Will Smith,) and Mayte Garcia ( ex of Prince.)

WATCH THE SUPER TRAILER NOW!!

All the ladies are very beautiful and we all know a little about their lives with their ex-husbands. But I hope and pray that these women do not embarass their exes (and their children) by fighting and acting a fool.

I’m talking about three women in particular.

Sheree was known for her drama back in the day when she was with Will, but insiders say that Will, Jada and Sheree are very close and good friends now.

It’s obvious that with all the drama and court issues surrounding R. Kelly, Andrea just may be the most troubled of all the women. And by watching the clips, we can also tell that she’s loud, opinionated…and don’t take no mess.

And most of all.. Mayte….All I can say is I’m sure Prince is not at all happy with his ex pouring out the juice on their relationship, not to mention talking to these ladies about it…and parading around in his old clothes! (Watch the clip)

I personally think that the show will have a longer span if the ladies can keep it classy, fun and show that women can have their differences but in the end let their maturity shine through.

jada finally speaks out about her and will’s sexuality

jada-and-will-smith1

We’ve all heard the rumors that Will and Jada are swingers and maybe even bi-sexual; and apparently they have too.

Jada confesses: “I’ve heard all the things — their marriage is not real, he’s gay, she’s gay, they swing. But at the end of the day, people have to believe what they have to believe…One thing Will and I are not here to do, is like, what’s real for us is what’s real for us, so you can either get on that bandwagon or not. I’ll tell you what, it’s too hard to be in a pretend marriage. Life’s too short for that one.”

Does that sound convincing?
