Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith seen together for the first time since Oscars slap

Published

on

Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith have been spotted out and about together for the first time since Will slapped Chris Rock over a joke at Jada’s expense during the 2022 Oscars back in March.

The pair, who appeared to be in good spirits, was snapped by photogs Saturday in Malibu near celebrity hot spot Nobu, walking hand-in-hand as Will waved to onlookers.

The Oscar winner wore a black hat, navy polo shirt and matching pants for the outing, completing the look with a fresh pair of white Air Force Ones. Jada also rocked sneakers with her all black ensemble, tying a flannel shirt around her waist and finishing off her look with delicate jewelry and a pair of shades.

The sighting comes weeks after Will released his latest apology for slapping Rock during the ceremony due to a “G.I. Jane” joke the comic told in reference to Jada, who suffers from hair loss condition alopecia.

“I reached out to Chris, and the message that came back is he’s not ready to talk, but when he is, he will reach out,” Smith said in the video posted to YouTube. “I will say to you, Chris, I apologize to you. My behavior was unacceptable, and I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk.”

Jada addressed the moment during a June episode of her Facebook Watch series “Red Table Talk,” saying she would like, “these two intelligent, capable men to have an opportunity to heal, talk this out and reconcile.

“The state of the world today, we need them both,” she continued. “And we all actually need one another more than ever. Until then, Will and I are continuing to do what we have done for the last 28 years, and that’s keep figuring out this thing called life together. Thank you for listening.”

As for Rock, the stand-up has only spoken of the matter on-stage during recent gigs, including comparing Smith to former Death Row Records exec and noted hot-head Suge Knight.

“Everybody is trying to be a f—ing victim,” Rock, 57, said during a gig at Atlanta’s Fox Theater. “If everybody claims to be a victim, then nobody will hear the real victims. Even me getting smacked by Suge Smith … I went to work the next day, I got kids.”

“Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face,” Rock added.

Madonna reveals the on-stage moment that almost killed her career

Published

on

Pop diva Madonna may have one of the most impressive careers in music history, but the “Vogue” singer revealed that a wardrobe malfunction three decades ago nearly ended her career.

The 63-year-old shared the cheeky mishap during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, decked out with a mouthful of “birthday grills” in true Madonna fashion.

The star joined Fallon to promote her new album “Finally Enough Love”, a curation of the singer’s favorite dance hits.

While the album celebrates Madonna’s record number of top songs, the star revealed her iconic “Like a Virgin” performance during the first-ever MTV Video Music Awards in 1984 nearly got her canceled.

When the then 26-year-old descended onto the MTV stage to perform the hit song, her stiletto slipped from underneath her, resulting in the singer diving to catch it– accidentally flipping her dress and exposing her behind in the process.

“Those were the days when you shouldn’t show your butt to have a career,” the star joked. “Now it’s the opposite.”

Madonna recalled her reps backstage deemed her career “over with” after the accidental flashing,

“It wasn’t even the whole butt! It was like a butt cheek– like half of a butt cheek,” Madonna argued to the audience.

Fallon also reminded audiences that “Like a Virgin” was never supposed to be the record’s single, given that producer Nile Rodgers wanted it to be “Material Girl”.

“Those were the days when I had no say in anything,” the Grammy-winner reflected. “Can you imagine those days even existing?”

Despite her old reps’ fears, Madonna’s career was far from over following the accidental on-stage flashing. Her new album, celebrating her 50 #1 hits on the Billboard singles charts, was released earlier this summer, with a CD and vinyl version coming on Aug. 19.
