Jada Pinkett Smith sounds maybe a little jealous of her kids? Not really. The Baltimore native is a good mom, and she's happy for the success 15-year-old Jaden and 12-year-old Willow (who turns 13 this month) are realizing. But maybe she can't help but wish she had the head start they're both enjoying. "Their start is going to be far beyond anything that Will or I could have imagined," she says, casually bringing husband Will Smith into the conversation. "Will and I, we had to come into Hollywood and make something out of it, we were first generation.

For weeks the media has feasted on a Jada Pinkett Smith comment that implied she and her husband Will enjoy an open marriage. So she took to Facebook this week to put an end to the feeding frenzy. Or maybe to throw out another bone. "Open marriage?" she wrote.  "Let me first say this, there are far more important things to talk about in regards to what is happening in the world than whether I have an open marriage or not. " True that. But, hey, no harm in chatting about it, just a little, all the same.

When Jada Pinkett attended the Baltimore School for the Arts, she always showed up late. And on Friday, three years after graduation, she still arrived at school late -- but this time it was for an interview and she was in a white stretch limousine.Back in town for the weekend, Ms. Pinkett, who stars on NBC's "A Different World," visited friends, talked to former teachers, and was interviewed six times. Everyone, it seemed, was eager to talk to the woman who grew up in the Mount Washington neighborhood of Baltimore, then went to Los Angeles and made it big.Ms.

Talking with actress Jada Pinkett is almost like being in a Sista Souljah video. She punctuates a good number of her sentences with "ya know what I'm sayin'?" but her bullet-tough, straight-from-the-street lexicon can't hide a straightforward sense of urgency and concern.Her voice is palpably earnest, even over a telephone line from Los Angeles, as she talks about her roles in so-called "black" films, for which she has won kudos for playing women living and struggling in blighted inner-city neighborhoods, as in last year's sleeper "Menace II Society."

Actress and Baltimore native Jada Pinkett Smith took to Facebook to condemn the media for "bullying" Justin Bieber and other young artists. In something of a treatise under the headline, "Are we bullying our young artists?" Pinkett Smith took the media to task, asking, "How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them?" "It is as if we have forgotten what it means to be young or even how to behave like good ol' grown folk," she wrote.

I read The Sun's recent article regarding circus elephants being mistreated, and I feel Jada Pinkett Smith has been misinformed regarding how the circus and other traveling circuses around the country care for their animals ("Jada Pinkett Smith urges SRB to protect elephants," March 6). I hope Ms. Smith will visit the circus when it's in Baltimore March 21 through April 1 and see how well Ringling Bros. Circus cares for not only elephants but all of their animals. Also, see how bull hooks are only used to guide elephants and do them no harm.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake wasn't exactly jumping when Jada Pinkett Smith asked for her help in protecting elephants earlier this week. The mayor more or less says she had bigger fish to fry -- that and the actress didn't help her out when the city needed it. But Friday Pinkett Smith's aunt, who runs the Baltimore-based charity of the actress, said her niece has done quite a bit for the city -- and she's surprised that the mayor doesn't...

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blakewants to teach Jada Pinkett Smith a lesson in that old, scratch my back, I'll scratch yours thing. Earlier this week the actress sent the mayor a letter, asking her to make sure the elephants are well treated when the Ringling Bros. circus comes to town later this month. She feared the circus would be jabbing the animals with pointy sticks. But the mayor is something less than moved to act. Particularly after the actress didn't exactly help her out. “We've reached out about homelessness, about school issues,” Rawlings-Blake told WJZ. “I would have loved to gotten some feedback, support or concern about those issues that are very pressing to the city.” And that's not all. The mayor, a known fan of the circus, who's accepted free tickets to the show and even a ceremonial role in the event, said she's still looking forward to it this year.
