“I wasn’t in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness,” Pinkett Smith said to her co-hosts, daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones.
Pinkett Smith continued, “I actually feel like I was using ‘addiction’ a little lightly. And maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence.”
The actress has been married to Will Smith for almost 22 years, and said she ended up using porn because she felt an “emptiness,” adding that porn gave her “false expectations” when connecting with partners.
In the 23-minute episode, Pinkett Smith, Willow, and Banfield-Jones talked about the shame surrounding the enjoyment of porn, but how an addiction to porn can negatively impact a person’s career and personal relationships.
LOS ANGELES, April 15, 2019 / — 6x Entertainment has released the new single and official music video for “Come Together” by the multi-talented entertainer, Tia P., which features the dynamic recording artist B. Slade. “COME TOGETHER” is now available to download on all streaming platforms and the official music video can be seen on YouTube. With so much violence, racism, and corruption going on in our communities and the political climate state of the world around us in constant archaic disaccord, Tia P. and B. Slade are ready to take the world by storm with a positive message and soulful rendition of The Beatles’ classic hit, “Come Together”, but with a banging and interesting new twist. In addition to dropping the new single, “Come Together”, Tia P. will be featured in this season’s upcoming episodes of, “Next Big Thing”, which airs on the BET Network.
One cannot categorize Tia P. as just a singer or rapper, she’s an overall entertainer and quadruple threat adding acting, dancing, and percussionist skills to her talent repertoire. “Tia P. is a visionary. She embodies greatness and musical excellence. She is gifted in her DNA with an authenticity, artistry and creativity that only musical legends are made of”, says C. Von Parchman, President & Founder of 6x Entertainment. Marty Arnold, COO and Managing Partner of 6x Entertainment adds, “Tia P. is an electrifying performer, a remarkable songwriter, and eclectic rapper. We feel extremely confident that Tia P. will captivate audiences and leave music fans wanting more.”
What inspired you to create the single “Come Together?”
Well, the song is originally by The Beatles – epic in their own right. The remake concept actually sprung from KJLH radio personalities Tammi Mac and Don Amiche. “Mac & Amiche”, now “The Tammi Mac Show”, began playing the remixes I was reproducing and performing on YouTube from my “Minute Music Monday” series. They threw out a Beatles iconic song “Come Together” as a challenge to see if I could pull it off as well as I’d done the others in my series. As soon as I heard what they proposed, I was excited and eager to take on the challenge for several reasons: A) I’m all about love, peace, and unity and this song is the embodiment of embracing differences but all being able to come together as one. I believe that message, decades later, in this day and time needs to be echoed to the younger generations and serve as a reminder to the older ones. B) It’s something I don’t think I would have ever suggested myself, nor is it a song people would expect from a young Black female “rapper” from Inglewood. I didn’t want to listen to any other remakes of “Come Together” because I didn’t want my version to sound like anything else that had been done. I needed to keep the integrity of the song. After listening to and researching the absurdity of the lyrics, I was sold on recreating this necessary audio masterpiece but giving it my own taste with an added rap towards the end. Once I brought B.Slade into the mix, it went to a whole nother level!
What was the experience like collaborating with BSlade?
It’s a trip! That’s big bro! Seriously, being able to work with someone you’ve looked up to and been inspired by for most of your life doesn’t happen for most. His energy is infectious and he’s king of being out the box, which is exactly what we needed for this video shoot. On top of that, he’s freaking hilarious; a maniac on stage or on camera, but humble and chill when off. This isn’t actually the first song we’ve collaborated on. We’ve worked on a few things, but our first cut together was a song he featured me on called “Black Lives Matter” for his project called the Black Belt. “Come Together” is the first audio and visual collab we’ve done.
What is the message that you want listeners to take from this song?
It’s ok to be different. Please don’t be a conformist; it’s boring. However the power that we have when we come together (no pun intended), when we truly see one another beyond the differences, past the fear mongering and politics, we make change happen. Most of the lyrics sound like nonsense, much like the noise of the world today; but the one part that people around the world know is “Come Together”. Isn’t that what we still need to do?
In the months ahead, she will be performing at The Viper Room in Hollywood and at the 2019 Women in Entertainment Luncheon, which will be held at AEG’s Dignity Health Sports Park.
Detroit native B Free and Diggy Simmons, were introduced by Big Sean’s best friend Earlly Mac, and decided to collaborate on a song together. Both artists recorded the single together in Los Angeles, CA. For the video, Diggy flew out to Detroit, where they shot the video, and he helped with the radio promo of the single “All Mine”. The single was produced by PGF and the video was directed by Nick Margetic. According to B Free, “Sometimes collaborations can feel awkward or forced, but with Diggy it was natural from the second I landed.”
B Free’s EP “Lost in Paradise” streams on all platforms April 5th.
This video just gives us great vibes and these combinations of goodness and talent in this video from them is worth indulging and vibing to!

Rae’s Insecure costars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji confirmed the news while walking the red carpet at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards over the weekend.
“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight ,with Ellis adding, “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.”
Orji said she couldn’t be more excited for her on-screen best friend.
“The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?’ That was the reaction,” she said.
Rae also attended the NAACP Image Awards, but she did not comment on her current relationship status. Her rep is not commenting.
And during her appearance on The View on Monday, she played coy when asked about her ring, saying, “I have a lot of rings on my fingers.”
Rumors of her engagement first began to swirl after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her recent Essence magazine cover.
Rae and Diame have largely kept their relationship out of the spotlight, though the businessman has accompanied the actress on several red carpets over the years.
Rae has said that she prefers to keep her personal life private.
“I get so much feedback about everything,” she told Marie Claire last year. “The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”
While speaking with Vogue, Rae expressed a similar sentiment, saying she isn’t interested in hearing fans “input” about her love life.
“I don’t want any input,” she said. “As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f*cking? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”
Late Monday, the Los Angeles Police Department identified Eric Holder, 29, of Los Angeles, as a suspect in the shooting, which injured two other people. He was last seen in a white 2016 Chevy Cruze.

His debut studio album, “Victory Lap,” was nominated for best rap album at the Grammys last year and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard chart. He had two children, Kross and Emani.
