Jada Pinkett-Smith and George W. Bush

By Alan Smithee. Okay so the headline is just to get your attention, but we do have a point to make with it. George Bush ascended to the most powerful job in the world because he was underestimated. He was reelected to that job while still being underestimated. Thus the comparison with the Hollywood power that is Jada Pinkett-Smith. I believe that Jada was underestimated by Hollywood when she first got there and is still underestimated today.

Hollywood expected "Woo" from Jada but not "The Nutty Professor." Hollywood expected "A Low Down Dirty Shame" but not "The Matrix." Now I'm not saying there is anything wrong with "Woo" or "Shame" but clearly you would agree they are no "Prof" or "The Matrix." We are sure she is balancing a family and multifaceted career, but we are also sure that Jada's beauty and talents are not properly recognized by Hollywood.

Hollywood clearly did not expect Wicked Wisdom (neither did anybody else). But girlfriend can rock, top right. We're not just talking Rock & Roll here, we are talking head banging metal rock. The outer edge of rock. The cutting edge of rock. Jada brings it too. Sheer intensity and aggression. Vocals and physical presence. She struts and stalks the stage like a cross between Mick Jagger and Prince. Except HER band is throwing down industrial strength metal. Wife, mother, actress and (dare we say it) metal head banger rock goddess. Dang Jada. As George W. Bush might say, you are 'misunderestimated.'
