No, I don’t want to know what’s going on in that pic.
Will Smith appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and spoke with Jimmy Kimmel all about Aladdin where he plays
a demonic blue ghost The Genie. Since this is a celebrity interview promoting a film of course there was some casual banter about his family. Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, is basically the new Oprah Winfrey with her Red Table Talk show which gets to the root of many, many topics, so Jimmy asked about it. And Will let it be known that he can’t watch it. Yeah, Will FINALLY believes in TMI.
Variety has published a list of the top earning celebrities for 2019 and Martin Lawrence is sitting pretty at the big boys’ (and girls, and Tommy Girl’s) table. And no, I’m not talking about that Martin Lawrence, I’m talking about original recipe Martin Lawrence. Thanks to his Bad Boys For Life co-star Will Smith, Martin Fitzgerald Lawrence out-earned Academy Award nominees Jessica Chastain and Joaquin Phoenix. The three-time Kid’s Choice nominee was paid $6 million for reprising his role in the Bad Boys 3-sequel. I guess that creepy genie really can make wishes come true!
Will Smith is making the biggest mistake of his career (and that includes when he inexplicably went after the elderly in the song “You saw my blinker, bitch“) and trying to reprise the iconic role of the Genie in Aladdin. Everyone knows that role forever belongs to Robin Williams and the only person who can play that role is NO ONE and/or the ghost of Robin Williams.
Will has taken some heat not only for reprising the role but for the look of the Genie and it even became a brief meme sensation. He’s taken all it all in stride and says he finds the memes funny and he’s learning all about the internets.
The Source is reporting that a new song R&B singer August Alsina released about an affair he had with woman is getting people talking and guessing. And the woman which has the internet whispering incessantly to itself is none other than Jordyn Woods‘ savior with the vagina of a 16 year old, Jada Pinkett Smith.
To Hollywood, Idris Elba is probably just a darker skinned version of Will Smith. Other than their complexions, they are exactly the same and TOTALLY interchangeable. I mean, can you think of two other big Hollywood stars who can also rap (Ansel Elgort DOES NOT COUNT)? As soon as I saw a headline somewhere that said Idris would be replacing Will Smith in an upcoming project, I assumed it was the King James biopic playing Venus and Serena Williams’ dark-skinned daddy. But it wasn’t! Idris is replacing Will as Deadshot in the Suicide Squad sequel.
At first when I heard that Will Smith wasn’t returning for the sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad,I figured it was because he was going to take a long break after starring in Aladdin and the next Bad Boys movie. Because honestly, who wouldn’t be tired after granting everyone’s wishes in circuit party Papa Smurf drag on one set then chasing bad guys in between thirty minute oxygen tank breaks on another? Not Will apparently, because now he’s ready for his next thespian challenge by taking on the role of Venus and Serena Williams’ father/coach Richard Williams in an upcoming movie titled King Richard.
