Jada Pinkett Smith has finally addressed the controversial Willow Smith Instagram photo.A couple of months a go a photo of 13 year old Willow Smith lying in bed with 20 year old actor Moises Arias created serious controversy in the public. Willow's mother Jada Pinkett Smith, recently spoke out about about the issue and does not seem to agree with public opinion.
In an interview with Net-a-Porter, she said "Just don't pollute something that's not dirty." She continued to speak about the value of women in our society and believes women are not valued as much as they used to:
"It's really tough. I feel like the connection to the value of women on a bigger scale has decreased tremendously. Even though you look and go, ‘Women have so many opportunities,' it's like, ‘Yeah, but at what cost?'" [via]
A lot of the controversy fell on the shoulders of Jada and Will Smith but not on Moises. But, the Smith family is not a typical family. During the interview she opens up about her marriage to Will Smith and their different approach to parenting and family life. “I want my kids to be happy and I want them to be themselves. I was saying to a friend the other day, ‘Remember, our kids are not us.’ They’re not. Sometimes we’re trying to fix things that happened to us or projecting [onto them], and that’s a terrible, terrible trap.”
At the same time, making your kids happy didn't protect the family from being investigated by Child Protective Services.Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @projectcasting. Photo Credit: DFree / Shutterstock.com
