Willow Smith might be the topic of conversation this week after posting a controversial photo to her Instagram account, but if mom Jada Pinkett Smith has anything to say about it, it’s time for the conversations to stop. The 13-year-old Willow raised eyebrows on May 6 when she posed with a shirtless Moises Arias, a 20-year-old former Hannah Montana star, in bed.
And after hearing from Jada herself, it sounds like the report that she and Will’s opinion that the photo is “art” is actually legitimate. When TMZ caught up with Jada Wednesday night, she was more than ready to defend her daughter.
“Here’s the deal: There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation,” Jada said. “You guys are projecting your trash on to it, and you’re acting like covert pedophiles, and that’s not cool.”
While we can’t fault Jada for sticking up for Willow, we’re scratching our heads at her comments. If we saw our daughter lounging around with someone way too old for her, we’d be concerned — shirtless and in bed or not.
Besides, when we think of Moises, all we can think of is Rrrrrrico’s Empanada Extravaganza… and then we feel embarrassed for having such a visceral memory of Hannah Montana.
Do you agree with Jada, or was the photo crossing the line?
