I respect Jada highly. I respect her skill, I respect her as an artist, I respect her as an actress, very much.
During her interview, she reiterates that Hollywood does have a serious issue with diversity,
There’s been a diversity issue, years and years and years ago. This didn’t just start this year. This started way back when the Oscars first came up. It wasn’t created for us, by us. We can do our own thing, definitely.
Last month Janet, who once starred alongside Jada’s husband Will Smith on Fresh Prince of Bel Air, called out the couple couple on a YouTube video. Referring to Jada as ‘Miss Thing’, Janet stated:
Does your man not have a mouth of his own with which to speak? I find it ironic that somebody who has made their living and has made millions and millions of dollars from the very people that you’re talking about boycotting just because you didn’t get a nomination, just because you didn’t win?. That’s not the way life works, baby.
Janet’s interview on The Real airs today on Fox.
