Regarding her daughter's upcoming record, Jada Pinkett Smith says, 'I look forward to enjoying music through her creations.'
Jada Pinkett Smith has put aside her musical ambitions to help her daughter Willow Smith launch her own career as a singer. The "Nutty Professor" star has always dreamed of pursuing a career as a singer and even fronted rock band Wicked Wisdom in 2002.
But the actress admits she's put down the microphone to help her nine-year-old daughter record and release her debut album. Pinkett Smith tells AmbassadorMag.com, "I have always had a love for music, always, always, and always. I probably started to pursue it a little late in life. But it was always a passion of mine. I had always been too afraid to venture into music, but I decided when I was about 30 to just go for it. I started a metal band called Wicked Wisdom. I toured and I loved it."
"But soon after, my kids' careers started taking off, so I sacrificed it. I am pleased to say my daughter, Willow, will be putting out an album soon and . So I am excited about that, and she's pretty awesome. She will be better at it then I ever could be anyway!"
