Jada Pinkett-Smith Joins Willow Smith in Discussing Fame, Drugs, and Motherhood
To celebrate Mother’s Day, three generations of women – Willow Smith, mother Jada Pinkett-Smith, and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Jones discuss some intimate details about their lives in the spotlight.
To give you a preview of the raw intimacy behind the conversations, Adrienne starts off with a pointed question to Jada: “How do all my efforts to be a better grandmother, than I was a mother make you feel? Any resentment?”
Adrienne goes on to explain how she battled drug addiction while having Jada at a very young age. “I was not a good mother,” she says honestly. “I was on drugs until [Jada] was about 17.”
Despite the tough childhood, Jada claims that she doesn’t harbor any lasting resentment. “I turn all of that into power,” she explained.
Turning the tables, Willow was asked what she wanted to change most in her life.
“If I had to change one thing about my life, it would probably be, I wouldn’t be famous,” Willow responds without a second thought. “Because when you’re famous it’s so hard.”
“It’s not like I can’t reverse being famous. Sometimes I don’t want to be, but then sometimes I do because when there’s a problem in the world, more people will listen to me,” added the precocious pre-teen. “It’s kind of like helping people and if I’m not, then I can’t help people as much as I would if I was famous.”
