Willow Smith has released her debut album Ardipithecus.

Jada Smith spoke to photographers on Wednesday (7th May) about the controversial photograph of her daughter Willow and Moises Arias.
Jada Smith has reacted to a photograph her daughter Willow, aged 13, took whilst on a bed with a 20-year-old actor. The image was posted on actor Moises Arias’ Instagram account and showed Willow lying fully clothed on a bed whilst a shirtless Moises held a pillow behind his head whilst leaning on a wall. The picture has since been deleted due to the comments the image provoked on Twitter.
Willow Smith caused a minor scandal last week when Moises Arias posted a picture of the two on a bed.
Jada spoke to photographers awaiting her arrival at LAX. As TMZ reports, Jada said she was furious with the response from the press which has implied there was a sexual element to the picture. She said “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert paedophiles, and that’s not cool.”

I'm here for you, said Smith to his fellow artist.
Could there be a friendship brewing between Shia LaBeouf and Jaden Smith? Will Smith’s progeny hopes so – an artist-to-artist kind of thing. Jaden said so in a heartfelt message on Twitter, in which he reached out to the apparently troubled LaBeouf.
LaBeouf's got a friend in Smith, whether he wants to or not.
"I waited in line today on Beverly Blvd to see (Shia LaBeouf) I never got see him but I had a very important message to deliver... It was a message that only could be understood artist to artist... I'm here for you I believe in what your (you are) doing... I'm here if you need a fellow insane person to talk to. But I'm seriously here not like one of those 'I'm here for you's' that everybody says," Smith wrote in a series of tweets.

Who's following Jaden's school of thought?
When you’re the son of one of the richest men alive, you can afford to be a bit flippant with your beliefs. That’s why Jaden Smith – son of Will – has begun somewhat of a tirade against the modern education system – something he currently isn’t enrolled in.
He tweeted: “School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth” and “If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth,” much to the dismay of right-leaning, middle class Americans, who clearly don’t like this super rich kid telling their rich kids how to think.
“He has such a huge group of fans that really look up to him,” Us Weekly reporter Jennifer Peros told ABC News. “So this isn’t really the example you should really be setting,” she added, assuming that she can determine the kind of example anyone should be setting.

Will Smith and Jaden Smith were surrounded by friends and family on their arrival at the New York premiere for their movie 'After Earth' held at the Ziegfeld Theatre. They were joined by real-life astronaut Buzz Aldrin - globally renowned for being the second man to land on the moon with Neil Armstrong - and Haitian musician Wyclef Jean with Jean's wife Marie Claudinette and adopted daughter Angelina.

The actor admits to letting his son film with live, poisonous snakes during the filming of After Earth
Will Smith admitted to a fathering faux-pas during the premiere of new film After Earth, admitting that he let his son's safety come second during the shooting of a particularly dangerous scene. Will and Jaden were apparently shooting a scene in a tree riddled with poisonous snakes, however Papa Smith decided to shoot the scene with his anyway for the benefit of the film.
After Earth is riddled with monstrous creatures who prey on the Smiths for the majority of the film, however whilst most of the animals used in the flick are CGI creations, there were a few real props in the film that made the danger in some scenes very real indeed. Certain scenes were shot in the jungles of Costa Rica, including the one snake-ridden scene where Will and Jaden were confronted with real-live poisonous snakes.
"There are these snakes called fer-de-lances, and a fer-de-lance is the second most poisonous snake on Earth. We had snake wranglers on the set, six guys (who) would just walk around all the time and go ... thump!" Will said. "So there was a scene, and the snake wrangler came over and said, 'You know the tree that Jaden's about to do the shot in? We got, uh, a few snakes ... 'I said, 'Well, like two?' He said, 'We got ... maybe five today. You know, there's other trees. Jaden comes on the set and I was like, 'Well, let's just roll, we're here. Jaden, quick, just get up there, just get the scene! Now that I think about it, we shouldn't have done a couple of those shots."

Will Smith's 'After Earth' may suffer from ridiculously bad reviews.
The Will and Jaden Smith starring After Earth - which may well be M. Night Shymalan's worst ever movie - should pull in between $35-40 million at the box-office this weekend, though it won't be enough to secure the top spot in its debut week, says Andrew Stewart at Variety.
Sony entrusted over $100 million in Shymalan and The Smiths to make the sci-fi action movie, though reviews have been woeful with one critic opining on whether it may be the worst film ever made. Though a $40 million haul would leave studio executives pretty pleased, failing to secure the top spot will be concerning. That should go to Universal's fabulous 'Fast and Furious 6' with takings of around $50 million. The latest movie in the action franchise is among the best reviewed mainstream movies of the year and should bring its 10-day total to a quite miraculous $175 million.

We look into our crystal ball and we can see 2s and 3s and bad reviews...
After Earth has all the ingredients for a bad film, doesn’t it? You’ve got the father-son partnership between Will Smith and Jaden in yet another post-apocalyptic dystopian vision of earth, and it’s from hit-and-miss director M. Night Shyamalan.
So when it came to predicting a score on film aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes, we thought it would be a pretty easy task – we’ll just slap a 24% on this potential pile of steaming mess and pop the kettle on; knock up a strong coffee. That wouldn’t be fair, though, so we’ve decided to look at the reviews, which, for After Earth, could be like getting your gas and electricity meter checked and risking a bigger bill.
Watch the After Earth trailer:
1000 years have passed since humans walked the earth. Kitai Raige (Jaden) and his father Cypher (Will) crash land on the now isolated planet, and are forced to survive despite a pretty serious injury to Cypher. Not the worst plot of all time, but has it been executed well? “A trite sci-fi adventure that's probably too intense for younger viewers and not sophisticated enough for adults,” say Screen International. Oh dear, that’s not a good start. “You'll spend much of your time waiting for it to be after After Earth, waiting for that respite brought about by the damn thing finally getting to its silly, telegraphed point,” write Twitch. That’s not good either.

Jaden Smith says he can't move out until he comes bigger than his famous father!
Remember that whole Jaden Smith wants to be emancipated from his millionaire parents thing? Yeah, he was joking - he's not going anywhere. Following reports that the 14-year-old had told parents Will Smith and Jada-Pinkett Smith he wanted his own house for his 15th birthday, Jaden made an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show on Wednesday and shot down the speculation.
"I just heard you are trying to become emancipated, is that right?" the talk show host asked Jaden. "See, here is the thing that you need to understand - I'm not going anywhere," he replied, "The thing that people don't get is everything at this house is free. So I can get anything and everything at his house so I'm going to be there 20, 30 more years."
Jaden stars alongside his father in new sci-fi movie After Earth and he concedes that things may change once his film career takes off. "He says as soon as I have a movie that's bigger than one of his movies, I can get my own house," Jaden joked. It's probably going to difficult for the 14-year-old to achieve that feat anytime soon - Will is easily in the top five movie stars in the world - though in 10 years who knows?

Is 15 too young for emancipation? Obviously.
When we say ‘like father like son’, we actually mean, 'like father’s character as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air like son’. Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith is craving independence now that he’s 15.
Check out the After Earth Trailer here
“He says, ‘Dad, I want to be emancipated.’ I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place, like ooh,” explained Smith (senior) to The Sun. “That’s the backlash. On the other side, if kids just want to have command of their lives, I understand.” We don’t think Jayden has really thought this one through. He’ll miss having his sheets washed and the hot food put on the table everyday. Then again, as a little millionaire, he can probably get all that stuff arranged. The father and son pair are forging quite the on-screen partnership; they’re set to build upon The Pursuit of Happiness by starring together in After Earth, a post-apocalyptic movie, directed by M Night Shyamalan. “It’s very similar for Jaden and me — your father’s the biggest movie star in the world, and you’re struggling for your little piece of dignity in this extreme shadow,” explains Will.

Quvenzhane Wallis will take on the starring role in the upcoming remake of the musical Annie.
Quvenzhane Wallis will follow-up her Oscar nominated role in Beasts of the Southern Wild by taking on the lead role in the remake of the classic musical Annie, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced yesterday morning (Feb 24).
The young actress wowed audiences with her award-worthy performance as Hushpuppy in the Benh Zeitlin fantasy drama, and now the actress is reaping the benefits of her mature performance by signing up to her second post-BotSW role. Wallis will also star alongside Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender in the upcoming Twelve Years a Slave, which follows the story of a New York man kidnapped and sold into slavery in the South in the early 1800's.
Will Gluck, who directed Friends With Benefits, is already attached to directed the remake, which is being financed by Will Smith, Jay Z, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter and Tyran Smith. Will and Jada's daughter Willow Smith was initially rumoured to be taking on the lead role, but it seems the appeal of having an Oscar nominee star in the film was too much for Will, who will be appearing alongside his son Jaden in the upcoming After Earth.

Cypher Raige is a renowned military general who finds himself and his frightened 13-year-old son Kitai in the middle of a deadly asteroid storm while on their aircraft on the way to their home planet Nova Prime to see their family. When they are hit, they end up crashing on to a dangerous and quarantined planet that is revealed to be Earth 1000 years after mankind was evacuated following a set of global disasters. Now it is almost entirely a jungle with savage evolved creatures roaming the land, but Kitai must brave the danger and remember that his fear is only in his mind as he treks into the wild to recover a distress beacon that he must use to call for help as his father is in a critical condition and close to death after being thrown across the ship in the crash. Little do they know that the unfamiliar new earthling species are not the only danger they must face as a brutal alien has now escaped onto the forgotten planet.
'After Earth' has had a string of different screenwriters working on it including director M. Night Shyamalan ('The Sixth Sense', 'Signs', 'The Last Airbender'), Stephen Gaghan ('Traffic', 'Rules of Engagement'), Gary Whitta ('The Book of Eli') plus additional dialogue from Michael Soccio who has previously worked with star Will Smith when he wrote four episodes of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. This sci-fi adventure is set to hit cinemas in the UK from June 7th 2013.
Starring: Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Isabelle Fuhrman, Zoe Kravitz, Sophie Okonedo, Kristofer Hivju, David Denman, Sacha Dhawan, Lincoln Lewis, Chris Geere,

Who doesn't love a good end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it movie? No one. Everyone loves end-of-the-world movies, that includes zombies, post-apocalypse, nature taking over, unexplained events, or even films like Wall-E (one of the best Pixar movies to date), which envisions Earth-post humanity.
Will Smith is pretty much the king of this genre, having starred in Independence Day, I Am Legend, and three Men in Black movies, all of which tackle the prospect of a disastrous alien invasion. His latest offering to this genre is After Earth, which doesn't actually seem to examine how humans died out, but how humans may be able to cope on a version of Earth that is made for the destruction of our race, rather than vice versa.
The trailer for After Earth has finally been released. Once again Will Smith joins forces with his young son Jaden as a father and son fighting the realities of (a version of) life (as in The Pursuit of Happyness). The official synopsis explains that the pair's flight vehicle is damaged while traversing the universe causing them to crash land on Earth, the planet our race was forced to flea. As Cypher (Will) is injured at the craft, Kitai (Jaden) is forced to navigate the alien land to save them both. Sounds exciting? It looks it too.
