First it was too raunchy and now there are accusations of miming – Britney Spears’ Onyx Hotel tour has been coming under fire after its first night in the UK.
But Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of Hollywood star Will Smith, has been showing her support for the pop princess off-stage as well as on.
Jada is opening for Britney in the UK with her band Wicked Wisdom. She’s the lead singer of the RnB/rock/soul outfit and received a warm welcome last night as hubby Will watched in the wings.
But as for Britney’s show, Jada said she didn’t know anything about the miming:
“No I haven’t heard anything about that. She gives you an hour and a half of full-on entertainment. That’s a difficult thing to do. It really is very difficult.”
Jada also reckons we should all stop worrying about whether the whole Onyx Hotel experience is too raunchy.
“It goes along with the freedom of expression. She has the absolute right to do whatever show she pleases.”
“Parents take their kids to see it. Britney’s made it very clear what she’s about.”
“We as consumers have a choice. We have a choice of whether we’ll see it or not. That’s not on Britney at all.”
