Jada Pinkett-Smith Quit Metal Band for Kids


Back in 2005 Jada Pinkett-Smith famously started a heavy metal band called 'Wicked Wisdom' and went on tour with Ozzy Osborn and Ozzfest [click here if you missed that].

Jada admits her children sort of ended her heavy metal dreams...

In an interview on the Harry Connick Jr. Show Jada Pinkett-Smith admits,
"I haven't played in a while but I love it. I love performing. I miss it a lot. I really had to slow down."
"I had my kids with me on the road but then as they got older and had their own aspirations it was time for mommy to flow my energy and focus on them, so I had to put music aside... but I had fun when I had my run."

As a fan of Bad Brains and Fishbone, I can say her band was terrible because of her. I hate to be mean because the band was tight but she was a terrible front person. No voice and lacking charisma. Don't blame the kids; It just wasn't your thing, Jada

Thank you for clearing up that question.😄

Exactly. And word back in the day was that she used her husband to get on the Ozzfest tour, where her "sound" was not appreciated.

Jada was terrible in this band.

She flowed her energy and focus on them??? Is that why Jayden is modeling women's clothing & dating a coke/meth/pill head? And why Willow was posing in bed with a half naked white dude and talking like she's an actual quantum physicist (but hasn't even finished high school)?

Okay Jada...

I love to see Black women in rock. But Jada failed miserably at it. Nah, breh.

What 12:08 PM said. She missed the mommy train years ago. They are damn near adults and have appeared to be out of control for quite some time.
