Imagine going to school to find out that Will Smith was visiting…and that he would rap the ’Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ theme song. Wouldn’t that be surreal?
That’s what happened to some lucky ladies of St Martin-in-the-fields High School for Girls in south London this past week. While it’s been more than 20 years since Fresh Prince first aired, the students were treated with an awesome performance by Smith who at the age of 44, is still getting jiggy with it.
According to The Independent, Member of Parliament Chuka Umunna, who is an admitted fan of the show, planned the assembly and arranged for the actor’s appearance.
Smith was in London accompanying his son Jaden on the UK leg of his tour with Justin Bieber.
Now if this happened to me in real life, I think I would be pinching myself for days!! ’Fresh Prince’ may be over, but the legacy of the show will certainly live on!!
They say the higher the hair the closer to god. As a girl with large curly hair, I’m going to go ahead and go along with that statement.Girls love to give their hair some height, because flat hair with no body can be quite a disaster.
Guys complain that girls are obsessed with their hair. “You look fine,” they all say. “Just fine?” we throw back.
While most guys just shower and leave their hair as is, there are always a guy who spends more time than girls do gelling and styling their hair. Just try most of the guys in Hollywood because as we all know, perfect hair doesn’t come naturally.
Now, I have a bone to pick with all these guys who style their hair. It is not fair for a guy to have prettier hair than I do, or prettier hair than any girl for that matter. You’re showing us up.
There are some males in Hollywood with perfectly quaffed high hair. Geez, Who gives you the right.
Listen Colfer. You are on my list.
Yes, I have a hitlist. A list of males in Hollywood with the (unfairly) highest hair.
Stop it. Just stop it. You make us all look like hairless rodents.
READ THE LIST BELOW:
1) Chris Colfer
2) Eddie Redmayne
3) Justin Bieber
4) Will Smith in Fresh Prince Read more…
If you were born in the nineties and you owned a television growing up, I can guarantee that you can sing at least 85 per cent of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. Should you ask your parents to sing it, I’m 85 per cent sure they wouldn’t have a clue what you were talking about. And that’s what got 19-year-old Travis Clawson in trouble.
The boy triggered a lockdown at his Pennsylvania school after a receptionist trying to confirm an appointment thought his voicemail said “shooting people outside of the school” when the recording played the song (the actual line is “shooting some b-ball”).
The receptionist then called 911 and Clawson was arrested, but was released once the message was explained. This is a lesson to all parents/adults: maybe you should pay closer attention to the so-called garbage us young folk watch, if only to prevent embarrassing misunderstandings such as this one.
Father son duo Will and Jaden Smith star together in M. Night Shyamalan’s forthcoming science fiction thriller After Earth. The new epic trailer is already trending online.
One thousand years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape from Earth, Nova Prime has become mankind’s new home. Will Smith plays a general who returns home from duty to his estranged family. When an asteroid storm damages the craft the general and his 13-year-old son Kitai (Jaden) are flying, they crash land on Earth, which is hella dangerous since it’s now unfamiliar territory. Kitai is left to trek across the terrain to their rescue beacon all alone.
The film is hitting theatres on June 7, 2013. Do you like watching movies starring Will and Jaden?

Ladies and gentlemen, this is what I call talent. What you’re listening to may sound like a conversation between Denzel Washington and Will Smith. But lo and behold! It’s actually by the same person…comedian Jay Pharoah!
By channeling Smith’s rambunctious personality and Washington’s tough demeanor, it’s really not surprising that he is a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Those impressions are impeccable!
If I was famous and all chummy with the badass rappers and actors of the world then I’d definitely invite Will Smith to my party. The actor freestyle rapped at Gabrielle Union’s 40th birthday bash in Miami while performer Doug E Fresh beat boxed.
The Men in Black actor spit an impromptu freestyle, performed “Summertime” and OF COURSE moved on to the theme song from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (because that’s what everyone was secretly waiting for). Smith’s kids Willow (11) and Jaden (14) either think their dad is the COOLEST in the world (imagine them on take your parents to school day) or they’re all like “Dad!! You’re on YouTube AGAIN?”) I’m betting on the former.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have dealt with enough divorce rumours throughout the years.
And looks to me, Jada is getting tired of it.
“It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years,” she said in the September issue of Essence.
“It’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce. But no. We’re not getting a divorce. Where am I gonna go? Where am I going to go?” she says of her 15-year marriage to Will. ”That’s my boo. It’s like he’s another part of me.”
But aside from defending her marriage, the actress mother of two has to deal with public scrutiny of her 11-year-old daughter Willow as she pursues a music career.
“How people feel about Willow is how people feel about Willow. But what I’m most concerned about is how Willow feels about herself. She’s an independent, courageous, genius, talented little girl. I’m happy for her, that she can just be who she is.”
But even though 40-year-old’s main priorities lie in the well-being of her children, it was Willow who recently made a discovery that changed her life.
After her daughter shared with the viral Kony 2012 video about child soldiers in Uganda, Pinkett Smith was driven to learn more about how she could help endangered children, specifically victims of sex trafficking.
Since then, she has urged Congress to fight trafficking, launched a website and met with victims.
“We’re all affected by this,” Pinkett Smith says. “And one woman is one woman too many. We have to extend beyond ourselves” to help those who’ve been enslaved.
And yet again, the Smiths prove they are the coolest family on the planet. Forget about the divorce rumours! Be like them and get educated about world issues!
Beyonce and Jay-Z (duh) are the highest paid celebrity couple of 2012. Although they took some time off after having baby Blue Ivy, they scored big with Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne and Beyonce’s other ventures. Together, they earned $78 million which is absolutely INSANE!! Insane I tell you.
While you’re filing papers at work for less than minimum wage these two have forged a career they enjoy while cashing in big. I love them both but that salary seems
a little lopsided compared to what most people earn.
Here are some of the other highest paid celebs:
5. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, $40 million
4. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, $45 million
3. David and Victoria Beckham, $54 million
2. Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady, $72 million
1. Beyonce and Jay-Z, $78 million
It’s about time a relevant member of Young Hollywood like Nina Dobrev takes up a worthy cause like encouraging you to apply a liberal amount of SPF when you’re in the sun. You’ve got to avoid those UVA and UVB rays this long weekend or else you’ll end up with burnt toast skin like the Tan Mom.
Dobrev and Nick Braun head to the beach on a sweltering day, but not without their old school tape that has catchy, pre-recorded “lotion music” on it. They rap about the importance of Hawaiian Tropic SPF. They also sneak in some pop culture references to Will Smith in Wild Wild West as well as less on-topic movies like Hancock and Pursuit of Happyness. Just because it rocks.
The PSA parody was put together for Funny or Die.
Watch it here:
heartfelt save-my-ass apology from that reporter who got slapped by Will Smith on the red carpet after he kissed the actor one too many times.
Ukrainian interviewer Vitalii Sediuk said he intended to do something different than the other journalists and didn’t mean to offend Smith.
“I don’t take offence. Of course, we have different mentalities,” he said. ”It was a splash of emotions, an emotional moment and I’m sorry for that. Next time if I meet him, I’ll just shake his hand.”
I feel bad for the guy. I really don’t think he meant any harm or that he did it for attention. A lot of people insist the gesture was a misinterpreted cultural greeting since many people greet each other with a kiss on the cheek and it’s NO BIG DEAL. In fact, I think it was a mistake on Smith’s part considering all these reporters were there to promote his movie.
If you missed the epic slap, Smith was unimpressed during the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3 when Sediuk tried to plant a big sloppy one on his lips. He joked with another reporter: “He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him.”
Watch the apology here:
While Will Smith didn’t seem happy during the face smacking incident, he looks all sorts of gleeful relieving his past by rapping The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.
While promoting Men in Black III in the U.K., Smith got the whole crowd singing along with him. The only person who doesn’t seem to know the words is fellow guest Tom Jones. Yes, the same Tom Jones that sings Carlton’s favourite song, “It’s not Unsual.” Awkward.
Justin Bieber is performing at the Billboard Music Awards this Sunday and decided to throw us one by releasing a viddy of him rehearsing “Boyfriend.” We also talk about Will Smith slapping a Ukrainian reporter in the face and a party trick that involves a beer can and a chainsaw.
Cringe! This reminds of that time a reporter sprayed water at Tom Cruise and then received a harsh lecture from the actor. Today, Will Smith slapped a Ukrainian reporter’s cheek and asked what his problem was after he tried to kiss the actor one too many times.
Maybe it’s a Ukrainian thing? Or a fanboy thing? According to TMZ the guy is a TV reporter who often kisses celebrities — it’s kind of his thing. But his mouth was a little too close for Will’s liking. While some YouTube commenters are saying his reaction was homophobic, I think he was just caught off guard by the greeting.
The actor kept his sense of humour afterwards and went right back into the scrums for the Moscow premiere of Men in Black 3. He joked with another reporter: “He’s lucky I didn’t sucker punch him.”
Watch it here:
Justin Bieber apparently didn’t find out he was chosen by his fans to get the old sludge until the bright green goop was pouring over him and Will Smith at the Kids’ Choice Awards. I couldn’t tell if Will was trying to prevent Justin from escaping the waterfall or if he was trying to block Justin’s highly valuable hair, but
unfortunately the kids got their wish.
1) Agent J says he’s getting too old for the job but he looks virtually unchanged. Will Smith does not age.
2) Agent J must travel back in time after he learns his partner Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) gets unwritten from history. Oh (Emma Thompson) tells him he must time travel to stop an evil alien from assasinating his friend.
3) To go back to 1969 you have to get high, but not in the way you might think. Also 1969 is like some trippy Velvet Underground party where everyone is an alien. Andy Warhol was always one of us and Agent J has no problem kicking the “shiznet” out of him.
4) There are a few cameos in this film, including Lady Gaga. Wait, she has a cameo? Oh yea, there she is…
5) The movie’s fresh angle comes in the form of young Agent K (Josh Brolin) who is not hard on the eyes and has a laid back charm. Even though the world is being invaded by massive flying aliens, he doesn’t seem like he’s in a rush to stop it.
Guess somebody’s not going to be whipping their hair back and forth anymore.
The 11-year-old singer who has a new song out now with Nicki Minaj, recently shaved her head, as you can see on her WhoSay page.
Hair seems to be a big thing for the tween sensation. When she was last interviewed by MTV, she dished on her most regrettable hair choices, and an afro topped her list.
According to her Twitter page, the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith is currently on a trip to Costa Rica. With such hot temperatures in that South American country, it’s probably a good thing she got rid of all that hair.
So why wasn’t Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv on “Fresh Prince,” at the recent cast reunion? Well she and Will Smith hate each other, and there has been tension ever since she left the show in 1993.
“There will never be a reunion … as I will never do anything with an a**hole like Will Smith,” Hubert told TMZ.
She adds, “He is still an egomaniac and has not grown up. This constant reunion thing will never ever happen in my lifetime unless there is an apology, which he doesn’t know the word.”
Smith told an Atlanta radio station, “[Hubert] said once, ‘I’ve been in the business for 10 years and this snotty-nosed punk comes along and gets a show.’ No matter what, to her I’m just the AntiChrist.”
Nevertheless, we feel strongly that Janet Hubert was the better Aunt Viv. Daphne Maxwell Reid, who replaced Janet as Aunt Viv, could never hold up to Janet.
Here come the men in black, the galaxy defenders!
The trailer for third “Men In Black” installment is finally out today. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are back as Agents J and K to kick some major mutant butt.
The Los Angeles Times reports the third film has the duo travelling back in time to the 1960s, where Will Smith’s character encounters a much younger version of his partner, played by Josh Brolin.
“Men in Black 3? is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend, 2012. The trailer does a good job at exciting MIB fans for more sci-fi action.
Will Smith’s 10-year-old daughter Willow has been whipping her hair profusely for the past year now, it’s amazing she’s not in a neck brace right now.
While 21st Century Girl, her follow up single to Whip My Hair, didn’t do so well on the charts, the tween’s keeping things hot and fresh with a little help from Nicki Minaj.
After releasing just a sample of the new track called Fireball on Twitter last week, Willow (@OfficialWillow) is finally giving fans the whole shebang. Check out the complete collaboration here.
Producer Ronald “Jukebox” Jackson told MTV News Willow’s close to finishing her debut album. Until then, expect more hair whipping will ensue.
The statement reads, “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false.”
The two add, “We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”
