Jaden Smith Tried Desperately To Get Song In Mum's New Film
The Karate Kid star, 13, has already established himself in Hollywood and now he's hoping to follow his sister Willow in to the pop charts with his first solo song Give it to Em.
Smith was eager to have a track featured in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, in which his mum voices Gloria the hippopotamus, but Pinkett Smith was forced to reject his desperate plea because it came just days before the animated family comedy's world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Friday (18May12).
The Matrix Reloaded actress reveals her kids loved the first two installments of the DreamWorks Animation franchise, and she was "flattered" the teen even asked to be included in the project.
Speaking from Cannes on Friday (18May12), she told America's Today breakfast show, "They're much older (now), but I was very, very proud and flattered when my son called me the other day and asked me to make a call to Jeffrey Katzenberg to put one of his songs at the end of Madagascar, not realising that it's coming out in two weeks!
"I was like, 'Listen, it's done, it's over, OK?' He's like, 'I know you can call Jeffrey and get it done mommy, I can put a song on there.' I'm like, 'No, baby, you can't.' But I was actually really flattered that he thinks it's still cool."
