“But I’m melancholy and can’t do anything right” wouldn’t seem far fetched from an adult who has bills or heartbreak or family drama or just plain ol’ life to cope with. Too bad “Sugar and Spice” is the latest from 12-year-old Willow Smith. Not to undermine the very real pain many adolescents feel for a myriad of reasons, but it causes great pause to hear the child of megastars Will and Jada Pinkett Smith softly sing, “…while I’m drowning.” Read more…
VH1 News chatted with Pitbull at last night’s NYC premiere of Men In Black III regarding his new music on the soundtrack for the upcoming film. Known for hits “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) and “Give Me Everything,” the rapper is working on forthcoming album Global Warming, but currently has the lead single off the soundtrack called “Back In Time.” He stresses, just a little, to VH1 News reporter that it’s not just any single. It’s the lead! Pitbull says he’s been working hard to get to this point. “Working hard, learning a lot, absorbing, observing, and applying,” he said. “This is just the beginning. So get ready.” Read more…
To some Will Smith will always be the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. On a recent visit to the British talk show The Graham Norton Show, Smith said he’s best known for the character he played in the 1990-1996 hit sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Good thing his name in the show was the same as his real name, as he was warned by former co-host Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), it was what people would call him for the rest of his life. “[In] every country in the world that is the thing I am most known for, no matter how big the movies get,” said Smith.
Smith was in Europe to promote his movie Men in Black III when the host asked him to rap the theme song to The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air he happily obliged. Gary Barlow from the British boy band Take That played the keyboard as Will rapped the song with the audience who seemed to know every word (thanks to a teleprompter!). Tom Jones looked on while bopping his head as the two jammed out to one of the best 90s television theme songs. Enjoy!

If you were too busy stuffing your face with junk to stuff your brain with gossip and entertainment news over the past few days, have no fear: we’ve rounded up the biggest pop-culture stories that happened over the long weekend. The following is all you need to know about what happened when you were on holiday or just too lazy to turn on the computer:
Jay-Z Quit Def Jam – Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Jay-Z came to day, “Beyonc?, with your nose so bright…” Kidding! But Jay really did announce on the 24th that he’s leaving his post as president of Def Jam. There wasn’t much by way of explanation: in the vague wording of his official statement, he’s looking to “take on new challenges.” Bizarrely, he plans to keep recording for the label. If his history with retiring is any indication, expect him back in that leather seat and chomping on a cigar within a year’s time. [E! News]
Katherine Heigl Married – Bland led the bland as the world’s most inexplicable movie star met her singing, songwriting beau Josh Kelley at the aisle Sunday in Park City, Utah. And when they get divorced it will be just as uninteresting! [People]

Will Smith Maybe Said Something Questionable About Hitler…? – On the goodness of human nature, Will Smith reportedly told a Scottish paper: “Even Hitler didn’t wake up going, ‘Let me do the most evil thing I can do today.’ I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was ‘good’. Stuff like that just needs reprogramming.” So, maybe it was foolish of him to attempt to get into Hitler’s brain in the first place, but whatever — he didn’t say that Hitler was good, he said that Hitler was deluded. The distinction was, apparently, lost on the Jewish Defense League who said that Will’s words “spit on the memory of every person murdered by the Nazis.” O RLY? The outcry caused Will’s rep to proclaim the allegations “a lie.” “It speaks to the dangerous power of an ignorant person with a pen.” So, wait, he didn’t say that, then? Sorry, I can’t hear anything over the Christmas carols and rustling of wrapping paper. [TMZ.com]
