Tupac Shakur’s biopic All Eyez On Me may have made millions at the box office and won the favor of millions of his fans everywhere, it did not however win over one fan–his close friend and confidante–Jada Pinkett-Smith!

During an appearance Wednesday on The Ryan Cameron Morning Show With Wanda Smith on Atlanta radio’s V-103, while promoting her latest film, Girls Trip, Jad had a strong response to Cameron’s questions about the movie.

“What you’re seeing in regards to my relationship with 2Pac is not true. My relationship with Pac would have shown people a true—what he truly was. ‘Cause it’s one thing to see Pac’s persona, publicly, and who he was personally,” she said.

“I thought it was just handled in a very disrespectful way, and I felt like it was exploitive of me and Pac, how they used our relationship to sell a movie, and I just felt like it was tomb-raiding in regards to Pac,” she continued.

Jada also felt like those behind the film their relationship to sell the movie to the public.

“And if you’re really saying that you’re honoring a man’s legacy, then honor his legacy. And if you don’t have the story, fall back until you do,” she chastised. “I feel like we, as black people, we have got to protect those individuals that we say are important to us, to our history and to our culture. We cannot expect other people to do that if we’re not willing to do that ourselves. Pac is precious to us.”

Check out Jada’s full response below in the video of her appearance on the show. She begins discussing All Eyez On Me at the 16:45 mark.

Jada is speaking some serious truth here. We hate the film is not accurate from her perspective. It really makes us wonder what else was embellished in the film…(sips tea)…

Will Smith Reveals He, and Wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith Have Gone to Marriage Counseling

Am I the only one who wishes they could’ve been a fly on the wall during one of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s marriage counseling sessions? They are one of Hollywood’s top power couples and each has dominated the entertainment industry throughout their respective careers. Jada has this earthy and chill persona while Will has always been known for his smooth and comedic take on life so I think it would be pretty interesting to sit in on one of their sessions.

Will and Jada2

In a new interview with The Sun, Will admits the couple underwent counseling to save their 19-year marriage.

via Page Six:

Will Smith revealed: “I’ve done a lot of marriage counseling. What happens in a marriage once you do counseling, the truth comes out. And you sit across from your wife and you’ve said all of your truth and she has said all of her truth. You look at each other and you can’t imagine you could ever possibly love each other again now the truth is out.

“It creates a dark moment. But for me it’s the dark before the dawn. When the truth comes out and people have to say who they are and what they think, you get to know who they are. I think that’s the cleansing before you get to the other side that is understanding and moving forward in our relationship.”

Fresh Prince of Bel Air’s Janet Hubert Slams Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith (@jadapsmith) Over Oscars Boycott

Clap back season is among us and to start it off, we have none other than actress Janet Hubert (most notably known for her role as the original Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air) responding to fellow actress Jada Pinkett-Smith’s campaign to boycott the 2016 Oscars.

Just last night, Janet Hubert released a 4-minute video on YouTube calling both Will Smith and his wife Jada out, and the shade was thick as fog.

Janet Janet and Will

“First of all, Miss Thing, does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak?”

She continued, “The second thing, girlfriend, there’s a lot of s–t going on in the world that you all don’t seem to recognize. People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you’re talking about some [expletive] actors and Oscars. It just ain’t that deep.”

Hubert went on to say, “And here’s the other thing, for you to ask other actors, and other black actresses and actors, too, to jeopardize their career and their standing in a town that you know damn well you don’t do that. And here’s the other thing—they don’t care. They don’t care! And I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living, made their living and made millions and millions of dollars from the very people you’re talking about boycotting just because you didn’t get a nomination, just because you didn’t win.”

It is no secret that there has been years of bad blood and animosity between Janet and her former Fresh Prince co-star Will Smith. However, some of the things Janet said were not actual shade, she spoke a bit of truth too (although a lot of it was indeed shade). The lack of diversity in this year’s Oscar nominations was noticed from the get-go, and instantly resurfaced the popular hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. Jada Pinkett Smith wasn’t the only entertainer to boycott this year’s Oscars, filmmaker and actor Spike Lee also boycotted the popular awards show. Check out Janet’s video below and let us know if you think she was throwing shade or speaking the truth – it is most definitely time for our infamous Opinion Hour!

Lightning Strikes Twice! Magic Mike XXL (@magicmikemovie) RULES!

Magic Mike was suppose to be a one trick pony on the grand scale of movies. So when a sequel was announced, speculation and not anticipation was the name of the game. Could a film about male strippers…we mean male entertainers really be a hit twice? Well if you bet “yes” then you deserve your own Channing Tatum lap dance, because this film was phenomenal! Magic Mike XXL packs it all! This time around Mike (Channing Tatum) is back, but not as you would expect him. He has retired from the stripping world and opted to become a businessman, opening his own custom furniture company. However, he finds his life is missing something and opts to find it when the remnants of The Kings of Tampa call him with their own brand of “serious news.” Mike opts to hit the road with his old friends for one last hayride to a stripper convention in Myrtle Beach. On the way the group makes some unexpected pit stops, while making new friends. Mike, however, reacquaints himself with a woman who truly put the “Magic” to his Mike.
