Jada Pinkett Smith Covers Essence

After an almost two year hiatus, actress Jada Pinkett Smith is once again gracing the cover of Essence Magazine.

The 40-year old former “Hawthorne” star openly confronts the latest round of rumors that have her and husband Will Smith divorcing for the umpteenth time, as well as the critics who claim she is allowing her daughter Willow Smith to grow up too quickly.

Peep the excerpts below and to read the full article, you can pick up Essence on your newsstands now.

Jada on her supposed impending divorce from Will: “It seems like that happens at least once a year, or at least once every two years – it’s rumored that we’re getting a divorce. But no, we’re not getting a divorce. Where am I going to go? That’s my boo. It’s like he’s another part of me.”

Jada on how she and Will strive to make their marriage work: Building on a relationship is not about keeping a form. Relationships are not factory made but are custom fit. The focus should be on creating a way to share a life together that is specifically catered to what the couple see’s as joyful, creative and erotic. When I speak about eroticism its not about sex but about deep feeling. Building a relationship is… building a miracle.

Jada on why she recently took up the cause of human trafficking: “When something speaks to you as brightly and as strongly as this particular issue speaks to me, you just put every resource that you have to move things forward. That’s what we do, we move fast. It’s the entertainment business. You have to move like a rocket. We’re talking about people’s lives.”

Jada on seeking advice from Angelina Jolie: “I called Angelina Jolie and said, ‘Ange, I need you, girl. Did you know we have slaves in this country?’ She said, ‘Jada, I’ve been working on this for years – are you kidding me?’ So I sat on the phone with Angelina and of course it was like going to college. She schooled me.”

Jada on those who criticize the way she and Will are raising their children, especially daughter Willow: Will and I have raised our children to be loving and respectful human beings. We encourage them to think for themselves and we are there to guide them through life’s hurdles. We have raised three wonderful children together and have had no major problems whatsoever. How many people criticizing us can say the same?

Jada Pinkett Smith Unveils ‘Burn’ Video

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith just unveiled the video for her single “Burn,” which she recorded with her band Wicked Evolution. Jada first released the single back on Valentine’s Day and dedicated it to her husband of 17 years, Will Smith.

Showcasing a bit of her Spanish speaking skills at the beginning of the video, Jada says she has found a higher level of loving with her husband. “This song that I’m about to sing is very important to me because it’s the beginning of a new love for my husband. After 17 years, I never thought I could love him even more.”

Jada Pinkett Smith Isn’t Worried

Jada Pinkett Smith, who was once a child star herself, says she is not worried about her children, Jaden and Willow, entering the entertainment business at such young ages. During a recent interview with Closer magazine, Jada said she and Will look to protect their children, but do not seek to control them.

Read what Jada has to say below about her very eclectic style of parenting.

Jada on Willow’s relationship with Lady Gaga:

“Willow’s blazing! I love the fact that she has an affinity with Lady Gaga. I think those relationships are healthy for her. “

Jada on the public’s concern that her children are growing up too fast:

“I see my children as little people, not necessarily people to control. You’ve got to help them develop and become individuals. You have to find out who they are but enforce boundaries to keep them safe. She’s simply being creative. I’m not worried about her growing up too soon.”

Jada on balancing work and family:

“I’m very clear about what my priority is and that’s my family. I used to struggle juggling work and family at the beginning. It’s hard when you change from being single to married to being a mother. But now I’m turning 40, I’ve found a peaceful compromise. I feel very content.”

Jada on how she remains emotionally grounded:

“In my spare time, I love to do yoga and outside sports with the kids like hiking and snowboarding. I like spending time with them in nature but that’s not really Will’s thing. Although he does like bugs!”

Jada Pinkett Smith Cover Essence

As much as I admire and respect Jada Pinkett Smith, seeing her on the cover of Essence Magazine was the equivalent to seeing Halle or Mary J. Blige on the cover. All three sistas have covered the magazine numerous times but c’mon now… isn’t it time to find some fresh new faces? I’m all for supporting a sista, and with Hawthorne pulling in better than solid rating for TNT, Jada is definitely worth acknowledging as it’s star and producer. Still- variety is the spice of life and Essence could use a bit of spice.

Getting back to the cover(s) for just a moment; Jada has two of them. The actress is naked on one cover and dressed on the other. Jada says she stripped down to teach her daughter and all women about positive body image and loving themselves no matter what.

Both issues will newsstands June 11th and we’ll have inside scans when they do.
