Exclusive: Queen Latifah Never Surprised By Willow And Jaden Smith’s Intellect

Published

Willow Smith, 14 and her brother Jaden, 16 shocked the world last month after delivering a more than intellectual interview to T magazine. From “quantum physics” to “theoretical physicist,” the siblings used words and theories that an average adult may not understand … which we’ve learned is just one of the teens idiosyncrasies.

And while the interview left fans and even media outlets speechless, Queen Latifah wasn’t surprised one bit. “I’m not shocked by anything that the Smith children do because I know both their parents and I’ve known them since we were teenagers,” Latifah told HipHollywood exclusively. “Will is a very smart guy. He is a very smart man. And he is a very well rounded human being. He is one of the most generous people I know. Truly thoughtful. Jada is one of the strongest, most powerful people I know. Super intelligent, very creative.”

She continued, “I remember Jaden as a baby, learning different ways to act … He learned these different emotions. I’m not surprised. They [Will and Jada] really invest a lot in their children. They really care about education. They care about how the kids learn and allowing them to learn in their own ways. Any child who is allowed to be themselves, yet invested in to the degree that the Smith’s do with their children would be great and really smart, highly intellectual and articulate people.”

Articulate indeed. Something tells us Willow and Jaden aren’t done shocking us yet. Bring it on.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
