  1. I mean, in todays rap game where nobody really sells records except for maybe 4 or 5 artists, it was a pleasent surprise to see a dude like Will, who's been around for decades now get a plaque, especially considering his type of rap isn't exactly whats "hot". if black radio just gives party starter a chance I think Will could claw his way to platinum, or damn close to it. that would be something.
  2. I was just wondering. I mean, I heard somewhere that Kel Spencer was ghostwriting for him, then I heard that Royce the 5'9 was. Anybody know? I'm sure Will could write but the question is, with his schedule, does he have the time? I wouldn't be too upset if he had a ghostwriter. I remember hearing Nas wrote "Jiggy".

  8. >Can u please show evidence where he said something like that?< "Will Smith has revealed the secret to a happy marriage - asking permission from your wife before you cheat on her. The 'Men In Black' star says he and his wife of seven years, actress Jada Pinkett, have made a pact that they can sleep with other people, as long as it isn't behind each others back. The smitten pair have researched the subject by meeting up with high-profile divorced couples, including Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman and Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, to find out what went wrong. Will, who has confessed to fancying his co-stars, revealed: "Our perspective is you don't avoid what's natural. You're going to be attracted to people. In our marriage vows, we didn't say 'forsaking all others'. "If it came down to it, then one can say to the other, 'Look, I need to have sex with somebody. I'm not going to if you don't approve of it - but please approve of it'." ** Will Smith Article Continues Below ** ** The Will Smith article continues now ** Despite admitting he has sexual feelings for other women, Will is determined not to split from Jada - and goes to all lengths to ensure they stay together. He explained: "Every time somebody in Hollywood breaks up, Jada and I go and find out why. "With Bruce and Demi, we spent hours talking to them. And Tom and Nicole - hours, just trying to understand what happened. "I don't let a day go past that Jada doesn't feel like the Queen of the World." Top Celebrity Headlines"
  9. Love Will find a way By Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY NEW YORK — They lean forward and gaze into each other's eyes. Anticipation builds as their lips gently pucker. Softer side of Smith: Will Smith romances Eva Mendes and goofs with Kevin James in Hitch, opening Friday. Smith plays a man who gives dating advice. By Todd Plitt, USA TODAY Suddenly, Kevin James, TV's King of Queens, dives in and lays a dainty peck on the mouth of a shocked Will Smith. Cinema's king of the summer blockbuster recoils in mock disgust as he yells, "What the hell was that?" The initial reaction of the New Yorkers who witnessed the filming of the smooch lesson gone awry for the courtship caper Hitch, opening Friday, wasn't much kinder. "They had no idea what the movie was, no idea what the scene was," recalls Smith, who chuckles while seated in a high-rise eatery with a Central Park view the day after the movie's premiere. "All they see is me out on the corner kissing Kevin James. And this black dude screams out, 'Will, no! Uh-uh. Don't do that. Whatcha doing, Will?' " Making amends, for one. The image-conscious actor came to regret his refusal to kiss a man as a gay hustler in 1993's Six Degrees of Separation, his breakout film that followed the popular sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and chart success as a rap artist. But in these queer-eyed days, same-sex spit-swapping is de rigueur. "It took someone like me to turn him," jokes James, who shines as a timid accountant who pines for Amber Valletta's stunning socialite. "I minted more for that kiss than the one with Amber." Smith also is out to score some laughs. Much to the delight of his female admirers, the buff-and-polished action hero is finally starring in a romantic comedy. In Hitch, he's a lover, not a fighter. There are no aliens to battle. No androids gone amok. No big guns, bad guys or pug dogs wailing disco classics. Instead, the relationship romp is overrun with hapless males in desperate need of guidance on matters of the heart. That is where Smith's Hitch comes in. His job is to coach woeful Romeos so they can impress unattainable Juliets. Meanwhile, Hitch must conquer his own commitment fears when he gets an itch for a sassy gossip columnist. Eva Mendes, who plays the tabloid tattler, says of Smith, "God, he's so sexy. Women are going to respond to him in a different way. You really see his vulnerability." Today, he's attired to inspire such thoughts in an urban preppy getup of Lacoste pullover and baggy jeans. The final touch: the multi-carat diamond rocks that anchor his unmistakable stuck-out ears. "It was strange for me, stripping it down to essentially just talking," says Smith, 36, of his genre switch. "No blue screens, nothing. To perform honestly and emotionally with a robot, that's a skill I've developed. But I love the interaction between Eva and me. I'm so at home in that romantic space." His action days are waning As his melon-sized biceps prove, he's also at home in the gym, lifting weights and running. But the routine can be a grind. "I'm going to stay in shape for about four more years," he vows between bites of bread. "Then I'm letting it all go. I'm going for the guy-with-the-gut roles. Soon as I'm 40, I'm going to stop watching what I eat." This sci-fi junkie, who turned down a chance to go to MIT to pursue a music career, is smart enough to know that aging action heroes carry an expiration date. There are two paths to safeguarding your status: You can either mix it up as even Vin Diesel is doing in the upcoming comedy The Pacifier. Or run for governor of California, a post currently filled. Smith also is reviving his hip-hop pursuits. His first solo album in nearly three years, Lost and Found, is due March 29. This $20-million-a-movie club member, who also is a producer on Hitch, can afford a change of pace. A true superstar whose hot-weather outings have grossed more than $1 billion, he has ruled the July 4 box office on a regular basis since 1996's Independence Day. Now he's ready to set off a different kind of fireworks while seducing this weekend's Valentine's Day date crowd. "Hitch is who I am," Smith assures. That would include the film's awkward college flashback in which the West Philly native exposes his inner Urkel. "Mike Lowrey from Bad Boys is my alter ego," he says, referring to his slick lady-killer detective. "That is who I dream of being." He and his actress wife of seven years, Jada Pinkett Smith, go so far as to offer Hitch-style counseling to friends and family. "Jada and I study relationships. I am a student of male-female interaction." Women likely will relish the sight of the Fresh Prince charming his way through love's pitfalls and pratfalls. But Sony, the studio behind Hitch, isn't taking any chances. Millions were invested in a Super Bowl ad to convince fans of his brawnier fare that their masculinity won't be compromised. "People generally look at romantic comedies as chick flicks. This one is not that," says Smith, who balances cutting up with James with canoodling with Mendes. Learning from a master He took his cues from one of the best in the biz: Cary Grant. "I love how Cary Grant could be so aggressive with women without losing his sensitivity," he says. "Like with Katharine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story. She broke his golf club. He runs up and balls his fist to punch her, but he knows he can't hit a woman. So he grabs her face and shoves her down." Hence, the vicious food fight between Smith and Mendes, in which chopped veggies are the weapon of choice. For someone who effortlessly sinks into the role of a dating coach, Smith has very little personal experience to draw upon. Not because he didn't have luck with the ladies. Just the opposite. "My first record came out when I was 17, three weeks before I graduated from high school. The women always knew who I was. It wasn't, um, the average teenage experience." Smith, who had an '80s hit with partner DJ Jazzy Jeff aptly titled Girls Ain't Nothing But Trouble, continues: "When you are on the road, you are in town for one night, and the girl knows it's now or never. The dating is the walk from the lobby, up to the elevators to your room." The easy pickings were swell for a while. But even men can't live by one-night stands alone. "You start to get a little older, and it's like, 'Wow. You don't know anything except I rap, and you are willing to do anything for me.' Well, that's not really for me then. That's for some person you don't really know, some fantasy of a guy who probably doesn't exist." He's hitched to Jada Not that Smith is incapable of long-term relationships with the opposite sex. He met his first crush when she was 3 and he was 2. They grew up together, and Stacey Alphonso remains one of his best friends. And his wife doesn't mind. "I love women," he says, "and my desire to bathe and bask in femininity is the energy that creates the ability to love my wife. If you kill one, you kill the other." Smith and his first wife, Sheree, mother of son Trey, 12, were divorced in 1995. He and Pinkett Smith were wed on New Year's Eve in 1997 and are the parents of son Jaden, 6, and daughter Willow, 4. "Jada is a brick," he says, then amends it. "She's my cottony brick. She's a brick in reaction to her open wounds. Which most people are. I can see her clearly. From the first day, I knew who she was." Hitch director Andy Tennant confirms that Smith is indeed the more romantic of the two. "It's all about the romance and taking it to the next level. He is a people pleaser. He excels at that." So when other guys take their sweeties to see Hitch as a Valentine's treat, how will this celebrity couple spend the day? No lame candy hearts here. "We don't generally celebrate holidays on the holidays," he says. "A few years ago we went to Hawaii in October. I surprised her, and we celebrated Valentine's Day. We had all the balloons and rose petals and all of that. We woke up the next day, and it was Valentine's Day all over again. For seven days in a row. The element of surprise is what makes it. You can't surprise anyone on Feb. 14." Men, do you hear that? Don't do anything Monday for your best gal. Wait eight months to show how much you adore her. Tell her it was Will Smith's idea. She'll be so glad you made no effort on the actual day. Then again, having a card and a couple of roses on hand might not be a bad idea.
  10. Those names and more litter Hollywood's boulevard of broken couples. But Will Smith says celebrity marriages such as the one he has with his wife of seven years, Jada Pinkett Smith, don't have to be endangered by fame. "The pressure is applied if you accept it as pressure," he says, sounding as sage as the love doctor he plays in his new film Hitch. "We feel very little pressure to be a Hollywood couple." What they do have going for them is what he refers to as raw honesty. "It's the lack of truth for us that would be the kiss of death." Though the pair try to avoid making headlines, that doesn't mean the gossip pages don't try to invent dirt. "One of the tabloids here in New York ran a story after I did the kissing scene with Eva Mendes," he says of his Hitch co-star. "They took a picture of me kissing Eva and took one of me kissing Jada, and then asked, 'Which one do you think is better?' " Smith says that the trust he shares with his wife puts any doubts to rest. "Eva Mendes is beautiful. Do I think it would be fun to sleep with Eva Mendes? Uh, yeah. Am I going to try to sleep with Eva Mendes? Of course not. Jada understands completely that I am a man of my word. That's all you've got. You can't have a successful relationship if you don't have it." The love doctor has spoken.
  11. there's one recent article in there. the rest of that stuff was just interesting to me, things that never make it to the US papers.
  12. On one hand, they do have a romantic comedy out in which they play a couple so it could just be promotion for the film. On the otherhand, no other actor/actress has openly kissed his co-star on the lips, an eyes closed kiss, over and over and over again just doing press. Will Smith himself said him and Jada have an open relationship, as long as they don't hide it from each other they can sleep with whoever they want. That is 100% crazy to me but hey, they have their thing, if it works for them more power to them. Will is still the man regardless.
  13. you gotta scroll to the bottom to see them. http://www.femalefirst.co.uk/celebrity/24732004.htm
  14. if these have already been posted i'm sorry, i never seen them before. WOW! i don't know where I stand on this. http://community.allhiphop.com/showthread.php?t=106608
  15. >basically the interview asks 50 about the situation with will smith and 50.< i meant will smith and eminem.
  16. basically the interview asks 50 about the situation with will smith and 50. the room starts going crazy with laughter and disrespect. one of 50's friends said Will was tounge kissing a man in his movies, the interviewer was swearing like crazy and disrespecting Will. 50 Cent asked what was Will's reason for going at Eminem and the interviewer said it was because of the "Will Smith aint gotta cuss to sell records / well I do, so F HIM!". 50 Cent said Will Smith has the right to respond and that's hiphop because Eminem did give him a little "spanking" with that so he co-signs Will responding. the rest of the room is laughing and dissing will like crazy about taking so long to respond. 50 said sometimes it takes me a little while to get right and respond. 50's boy said will is gonna come out with the diss record and a dance to go with it, lol. thats the highlights.
  17. ay, 50 Cent sold 11 million records his last album dog, thats a Diamond plaque plus a platinum one so I don't think you can attack 50 on record sales. maybe its me but I didn't think 50 Cent really dissed Will, he was saying he understood why Will would respond to Eminem while everybody else there was disrespecting Will. That was 50's boy Tony Yayo that was really disrespecting.
  18. thats 50 cents own personal radio station on Sirius45 I believe its called, they can swear, talk nasty, etc...
  19. 50 was pretty much defending Will but his people were kind of making fun of him. http://s120022208.onlinehome.us/50_Cent-In...e_45_Part_2.wav
  20. >Oh what a nice thread I thought, everything was looked just fine until i saw this line " I can't believe that WILL SMITH, Mr. 20 million a film" What... you cant call him that... he's a... a... rapper... im a li'l shocked...< lol, i didn't mean that in a disrespectful way, i just couldn't believe that someone who is as established in Hollywood as Will Smith could still come back to what many people thought he probably couldn't and be that good, it was a pleasent surprise. you don't expect probably the biggest movie star in the world to be able to drop a hot verse, it's very unusual. Will aint normal, lol.
  21. a freestyle is when you just start rapping and its not pre-written, pre-thought about or anything, do you guys REALLY think thats what will was doing? the beginning parts where he goes "tim westwood / doin it good" and all that stuff before the verse was him freestyling sort of, but the actual verse was definitely not a freestyle, people don't freestyle like that. i'm sorry for saying "freestyle" in my title, Will never claimed it was a freestyle, i'm just so used to saying that since thats what mixtape dj's call all of their unreleased songs with rappers over other peoples beats. i'm sure will smith CAN freestyle, i'm not denying him, i'm just saying that this particular verse was definitely pre-written, you can tell. well, i can tell.
  22. i don't think any really believes he freestyled that, as in off the top of his head, on the spot, no rehearsal, that was definitly a pre-written rap but who does freestyle nowadays? you'd be hard-pressed to find a rapper who really freestyles. regardless, will smith came better on that beat than Game and 50 combined.
  23. ha ha, will is the man. i admit, i was never a big fan of his music, i always liked will smith the actor/person, just never bought any albums and things of that nature, not because i didn't think it'd be good, just because it wasn't my style of rap. But now that I'm older and wiser, I appreciate his stuff alot more. the dude never swears and packs heat on his songs and they still hot! thats hard to do!!!! lol. out of his whole career, the only song i ever really didn't like was the "willineum" single, i thought it was a little too over the top. other than that, will is probably the most underrated rap artist in history, you never hear his name when fans and critics talk about the legends, its sad.
  24. whats good about will smith is that you know he's not doing it for money, he is drowning in paper, believe me. he's doing it because he has a passion for it and loves it, and thats when the best music gets made. i don't think he'd have come back out of nowhere and made it official unless the finished product was really really good so I got high hopes. i think what will determine if the album sells a whole lot is if the BET audience embraces it first, when they embrace something then the MTV audience considers it credible, and from the 106 reaction to the single I think he should be fine there. the only speedbump is eminem, the MTV crowd absolutely loves some Eminem, so if Will Smith is belittling him in any way, shape or form even if it is a response, they won't support it. either way, if it sells or if it doesn't, if the music is good then everyone should be happy, sales aint everything, and they're meaningless to someone like will smith.
  25. http://www.oprah.com/tows/slide/200502/200...50207_101.jhtml i'm sure you all saw it but, for those who didn't, at least ya get to read it, ha ha.
