After attending the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival in France, Jada Pinkett Smith and her 11-year-old daughter Willow Smith said au revoir on Saturday (May 19) as the pair departed out of Nice Airport together.
It looks like Jada’s eldest child actor-turned-rapper Jaden, 13, is eager to have one of his tracks featured in Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, in which his mom voices Gloria the hippopotamus. Although she was “flattered,” Jada was forced to reject his plea because it came just days before the animated family comedy’s world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Friday (May 18).
“They’re much older [now] but I was very, very proud and flattered when my son called me the other day and asked me to make a call to Jeffrey Katzenberg to put one of his songs at the end of Madagascar, not realizing that it’s coming out in two weeks!” Jada reveals on the Today show.
“I was like, ‘Listen, it’s done, it’s over, OK?’ He’s like, ‘I know you can call Jeffrey and get it done mommy, I can put a song on there.’ I’m like, ‘No, baby, you can’t.’ But I was actually really flattered that he thinks it’s still cool,” she adds.View Slideshow »»
