ORIGINAL: After 17 years of what seemed like blissful, great-sex-filled marriage, Philly’s Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are reportedly calling it quits.

Couple Go Viral With Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Pregnancy Announcement

A couple from Oregon wrote and recorded a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song parody that effectively dropped the news to their family and friends that they’re expecting.

The video has since gone viral, being viewed on YouTube over 1.6 million times. The song, originally penned and performed by Philly rap duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, includes so-bad-they’re-good lyrics, like “I woke up in the morning about 7 or 8 and thought to myself, ‘Oh man, I’m late! ’Looked at the test stick, it was finally there. A little plus sign—we’re now three, not a pair.”

Check it out above; everyone else in the world did.

Focus May Signal the Career Downfall of Will Smith

Will Smith and Margot Robbie in Focus.

The best part of my experience with Focus was going to get Dairy Queen before it started.

That is to say, there’s not that much to say about Focus itself. It’s a middling, corporate con-movie that suffers from a painfully self-confident script and reliance on the interplay between main Will Smith and sidekick/lover/protege Margot Robbie. It has no real antagonist—well, I mean, Rodrigo Santoro, kinda—and lurches from plot point to plot point as though it were a series of first-season TV episodes crammed into a movie.

Ultimately, there’s more wrong than right with the movie (real quick: the criminal psychologist from Law and Order: SVU engages in a Ken Jeong-style portrayal of a Chinese high roller; Gerald McRaney delivers what will go down in history as one of the most terribly pitched monologues ever; and a hugely important plot point takes place at the ugliest, fakest movie faux-Super Bowl ever—brought to you by Mercedes-Benz and Bud Light.)

Did Jaden Smith Come Out of the Closet on Twitter?

Several blogs went into a tizzy yesterday when Philly actor/rapper Will Smith’s son Jaden tweeted this to Tyler the Creator:

“I Think Im In Love With You, I Don’t Know I’m Still Figuring It Out But In The Meantime, Happy Birthday.”

Not long afterward, headlines started popping up claiming that the young actor came out of the closet. Media Take Out, for instance, tweeted “IT HAPPENED!!! Will Smith’s Son Jaden Smith Comes OUT OF THE CLOSET… He Admitted On Twitter… That He’s GAY!!!”

Obviously they took it too far and Smith was being playful, but a rep from the Smith camp—who likely knows a thing or two about dealing with gay rumors—found it necessary to release a statement that “there’s no truth to any of it.”
