Will Smith y Jimmy Fallon dieron a los fanáticos un poco de nostalgia televisiva en el reciente episodio de The Tonight Show cantando una mezcla de canciones clásicas de series de TV.

El presentador y la estrella Men in Black fueron de regreso a la década de 1960 silbando la canción The Andy Griffith Show y cantando el opening de I Dream of Jeannie. También remezclaron algunos clásicos de los años 70 y 80, incluyendo los temas de Good Times, Los Supersónicos, Diff’rent StrokesThe Great American Hero y Tres son Compañía.

Por supuesto, incluyó algunos éxitos finales de los 80 y principios de los 90, como las canciones de The Golden Girls, Full House y Martin.

Pero el gran final fue cuando Smith revivió sus días de gloria televisiva y golpeó el tema principal de El Príncipe del Rap.

On your mark, ready, set, let’s go! Will Smith and James Corden are taking to the road in the new Carpool Karaoke series for Apple Music.

The pair started things off by jamming out to “Getting Jiggy With It,” before Corden interrupted Smith in the middle of his pig Latin verse.

“It feels like it’s such a big tune. I feel like we need more. I’ve actually been working on this new surround sound system,” Corden insisted.

The British late night host then brought out a full marching band to perform with Smith as the pair of funnyman climbed out of the car’s sunroof to continue singing the song.

Corden also asked Smith about his start as a rapper.

“I wrote my first rhyme when I was 12,” Smith said. “It never got released. The first one that got released, I was 16, ‘Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble.’ I had a record on the radio for the last 30 days as a senior. You cannot beat your friends in high school knowing you have a hit record on the radio.”

And while Corden and Smith had fun spitting lyrics “Big Willie Style,” they weren’t the only celebs involved in the new spin-off series.

The extended trailer also showed Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner belting out Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, and will.i.am rocking to “It Takes Two,” Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane embracing their inner Broadway stars singing “Suddenly Seymour” from Little Shop of Horrors.

Other stars to perform in the series include Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Billy Eichner, LeBron James, John Cena, Taraji P. Henson, Shaquille O’Neal, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Miley Cyrus and the whole Cyrus family, Joe Jonas, Camila Cabello, and more.

Will Smith And Chris Rock Talk Racism In New Film Collaboration With Jay-Z

0

Will Smith and comic legend Chris Rock sat down to recall their experience of racism for a film that will accompany Jay-Z’s new track, called, “The Story Of O.J.” The eight-minute-documentary is called, “Footnotes For The Story Of OJ,” and it expands on themes present in Jay’s new song.

The central focus of the movie will deal with why African-Americans are victims of inequality and prejudice.

As for who will be in the short production, “Footnotes For The Story Of OJ” will feature many cameos including, Mahershala Ali, Kendrick Lamar, Trevor Noah, and Christopher Darden, who was one of the prosecuting lawyers in the infamous O.J. Simpson trial.

In the film, Will says, “I knew young that if I thought of myself as somehow less than somebody else I was going to build a life that was less.”

Chris tells a scary story about how his mother in South Carolina was forced to go to the veterinary for a dental treatment because black people weren’t allowed to go to the dentist.

He said, “They wouldn’t let black people go to the dentist. So all the black people in town got their teeth taken out by the vet.”

In the film, Jay said that black celebrities need to stay true to their roots because wealth will not always insulate them.

When talking about the cases of O.J. Simpson and Tiger Woods, he says they are accepted by white American society than were brought to their knees by legal trouble.

He explained, “we tend to, as black people, cause we never had anything, which is understandable, we get to a place, and we just think we separate ourselves from the culture.”

“As O.J. would get to a place where he’s like, ‘I’m not black, I’m O.J. Like Tiger Woods would get to a place and think I’m above the culture.

And that same person when he’s playing golf and playing high, you’re protected. When you’re not, they’re going to put pictures of you drunk driving and like embarrass you. That world will eat you up and spit you out.”

 And what Jay-Z fails to understand is that when you’re on top, and you’re successful as a person, everyone wants to see you fail, regardless of your skin color. Your own mother doesn’t want you to be too successful because she’s afraid you might not call her back again.
