Jada Pinkett Smith is the kind of celebrity that makes headlines just by breathing. But looking at those headlines — mostly about her marriage to fellow actor, Will Smith — made host Brittany Luse think that most people have gotten Jada all wrong. A graduate of the Baltimore School for the Arts, Jada’s best known for her acting, but she’s also a producer, musician, and painter. After reading her memoir, Worthy, Brittany noticed the way Jada’s artistic mind and process had been overlooked. So, she sat down with Jada to ask about it. They talked about what Jada’s painting, what she got out of her time as a rock singer, why she looks at her relationship with Will as a masterpiece, and what she wants for her future.
