Willow Smith Gave Mom Jada the Most Thoughtful Mother's Day Gift, and I'm Tearing Up
Red Table Talk celebrated Mother's Day with a special episode on Wednesday, and it included a sweet surprise from Willow Smith. Following last week's conversation about polyamory, the group dedicated their recent episode to a number of incredible moms. However, what they didn't know was that Willow was secretly planning a special tribute to her own mom, Jada Pinkett Smith. Rather than giving Jada a lavish gift, the 20-year-old went the meaningful route by paying tribute to her mom's rock-star past.
"When I was I wanna say about 3 or 4, I went on tour with my mom and her band Wicked Wisdom," Willow said in a video message. "My mother was superwoman, she was a rock star, she was a warrior, and a nurturer all in one. So unapologetically badass." She noted that when she was younger, she was her "mom's biggest fan" and loved watching her perform. As an homage to her mom, Willow reunited some of her old band members for a special performance of their song "Bleed All Over Me."
Before the performance even started, Jada had already started tearing up over Willow's sweet video message. "I just want you to feel a tiny little bit of the gratitude and the love that you have given me throughout my entire life and continue to give me," Willow added. Of course, nothing was sweeter than Jada's reaction to Willow's performance. After rocking out like a proud mom, she proceeded to give her a huge hug on stage.
