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!"
