Willow Smith pulled off a top-secret Mother’s Day surprise for Jada Pinkett Smith by getting her mom’s metal band back together to perform on the latest Red Table Talk episode.
On Wednesday’s (May 5) episode, which arrived around the third anniversary of the Facebook Watch series. Willow recalled accompanying her mother on tour with her metal band Wicked Wisdom with old home videos, including one where she and her brother Jaden Smith cleaned the outside of the tour bus.
“This is the music that I grew up around. My mother was Superwoman, she was a rock star, she was a warrior and a nurturer, all in one. So unapologetically badass. … I was my mom’s biggest fan,” said Willow, who recently took a pop-punk turn on her new single “Transparent Soul,” featuring Travis Barker.
To pay homage to the woman who showed her “what womaning up really is about,” the 20-year-old star followed in her mother’s legendary footsteps and performed one of her favorite Wicked Wisdom songs, “Bleed All Over Me,” with Jada’s original bandmates, including guitarist Pocket Honore and keyboardist Taylor Graves.
Willow brought Jada out from the living room, where the notorious Red Table resides, and escorted her to the driveway where the performance was held. The Girls Trip actress shed a few tears before lip-syncing to her own lyrics being sung by her daughter and rocking out alongside her mom and fellow RTT co-host Adrienne Banfield-Norris. Willow and Jada shared a tearful embrace for the touching closer.
