I like Jada as an actress and have admired her and her accomplishments. But this hairstyle just either says I don’t know what to do with myself or I want attention.

We can guess why she might have aged some. ?.duh because she IS older. Maybe she looks older than Will but we all know women have the toughest job and get pulled in way more directions. Jada is a hero. We need mire like her.:-) .

Actually DUH,you’re wrong Will is 45 while Jada is 42,and she is looking past her age,where as most black women still look young at 42.

People like you are very fake. They tend to hate others who are more successful and have a better life. If you want a good life, then make one dammit! For goodness sakes! instead of hating someone else for having what you don’t have. Your comment is mean spirited and you have no manners. Why compare her to her husband anyway? You women crack me up, whenever you see another black women with a good, successful black man, you become blinded with jealousy and find a way to put them down. Then you claim to “love” the person you harshly… Read more »

Why do black women like you always take things the wrong way,you obviously have a very negative mind set,just because she looks older then her husband,were not talking of features- is it such a bad thing to point out the obvious,she still is a pretty some.

And by the way, not ALL black women look 17 at 42. And 42 is not old.

the reason Jada looks so mucher OLDER than Will because she has lived life a lot longer than Will; her childhood, Baltimore, Tupac all of that…she is a tough rough broad and it shows…all the money, surgeries, skincreams and spas will not help…the eyes tell so much..life will do that to you

Hmmm seems like a tough crowd on here today! Jada looks great. I think she looks like she lost a lot of weight, but she is still gorgeous. I also think the weight loss is what really makes her look older. Her skin and eyes have always been beautiful. As for the hateful comments about implying that she “looks” older than her husband, well that’s typical of many, many black women. I still think she is way more attractive than her husband. Will with those big floppy ears. Yet you don’t hear women pointing out the floppy ears and mushroom… Read more »

I know what you’re getting at, because clearly this poster is using “mushroom shaped” as an insult, which is unforunate. But their choice of words reminded me of my first boyfriend, who used to tell me all the time that he thought my nose was so cute, because it reminded him of a little mushroom. And he said this with genuine affection, “your cute little mushroom nose”. To his eyes, the shape of my nose was adorable, because he was looking at me with nothing but love. It is true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder; and… Read more »

i’m glad someone pointed this out. most women period tend to look older than their husbands, especially past an older age unless that woman is significantly younger than he is. at least, in my experience that’s the case.

Wait, so you’re saying that by her not being “all the way black” that makes her beautiful? That is one of the more self-hating or racist things that people can say. That somehow black needs to be mixed with something else in order to make it acceptable or beautiful. First off, I don’t think she’s biracial at all. I’ve seen many black women who look like her, and there are many shade of blackness. Second, what difference does it make? Blackness in itself is a diaspora. Most African Americans as a result of slavery and being a transplanted race are… Read more »

PMS indeed, rife. I find it interesting that anytime a black woman shares a differing opinion she must be

bitter
a female dog
“bish” (I suppose this is supposed to be cute in hoodrat circles?)
hater

We are the first ones to scream black people are not a monolith but let a black person of the female persuasion not share your opinion and she’s called names, absolutely pathetic and it’s almost always other black women who do this.

Thank you, Effoff. There seem to be two schools of thought here. One school of thought is if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it all. And the other is honesty is the best policy. I like honesty is the best policy as long as it’s tactful and respectful. I love Jada as an actress, I love Will, seen most of films, Fresh Prince, bought his music. Love their children. I have “Whip My Hair” on my Ipod. We’ve seen several films with Jaden in them. My kids love the song he did with Justin Beiber. My… Read more »

Let me clarify because you read incorrectly between the lines of my post: When critique goes into bashing a person’s body features that’s wrong. People can hate or love the hairstyle but calling any woman old, hardened, etc is disrespectful and shows a personal lack of self confidence, IMO. Example: I can say I dislike that outfit Jada is wearing without bashing her petite frame. Sidenote: Are you not doing the very same thing you accuse me of doing by insinuating that I am “ratchet” for my use of an adjective (bish) that is slang and may not fit into… Read more »

Your line at the end was funny,but just to myself known and point clear,to say someone looks older is not offensive particular if you are stating the truth,why does youth always equate to being a compliment while looking ‘mature’ or saying someone looks older is seen as insulting,to say she looks old is slightly offensive if she looks young,it also shows an offensive tone.
I think it depends on how you use words.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even if that opinion is positive or negative. The article does end with the question “What do you think ladies?” In my opinion, I wouldn’t wear this hairstyle because I don’t like it, but Jada Pinkett obviously loves it. If she wants to wear her hair in a unique style, then she has every right to do that and I truly hope that she is happy with it.

Well, in France,the debate is way deeper than all I just read here. On November 15, a fashion online magazine called Puretrend used this picture of her to declare that “braids are an awful hairstyle”, “braids belong to the past”, “it’s has been and should definitely disappear for good”. The article, full of hainous terms concerning braids, also states that “they look like octopuses on celebrities’head”. As anyone would expect, black people reacted massively to the insult and the magazine was forced to publish an “apology” (Since they considered that their article had a rather humorous tone, I don’t think… Read more »

It’s different that is a fact. I personally do not care for this style, but Jada is different so this is not new.

I’m sorry but I just don’t like this style choice. Actually, I LOVED Jada’s 1990s Different World and Jason Lyric short chic style (she was so cute then) I also liked her Hawthorne “long hair don’t care” style. The goth or rocker chick styles that she likes to do just don’t work well to me. Anywhoo, Jada’s going do Jada so if she comfortable.… my opinion doesn’t even matter. I do wonder what Will thinks of his wife’s ever changing and often bizarre hairstyles. Again, if he’s fine, then what can I say.
