Will Smith Slapped Chris Rock and Then Won an Oscar

Chris Rock Said “Jada, I love ya. Can’t wait to see G.I. Jane 2” Will was not happy and walked up to the stage and smacked Chris.

Jada has been open about her struggle with hair loss due to alopecia. In December she posted a video where she pointed out a patch of baldness.

-Cops did talk to Chris Rock and he declined pressing charges.

-The Oscars do have rules of conduct about physical violence. Will still could have his award taken away.

This reaction by Smith for a seemingly light joke made by someone who is not only familiar with the couple, but also starred with Pinkett Smith in the Madagascar franchise, struck many viewers online as odd and even possibly a scripted bit gone wrong. But last December, Pinkett Smith revealed that the decision to shave her head was not totally voluntary, as she struggles with a common hair-loss disease for Black women called alopecia. But Rock also has a history of poking fun at Pinkett Smith, particularly on the Oscars stage, that may piece at least some parts of this puzzle together.

Phil Collins Bids Farewell to Fans at Final Genesis Concert

Phil Collins has taken the stage with Genesis for the last time. On Saturday, the 71-year-old drummer and singer performed with his rock band at London’s O2 Arena, the last stop on the group’s The Last Domino? Tour, which came after a 14-year hiatus.

Phil, who performed the show while sitting down due to ongoing health issues, was onstage with Genesis bandmates Mike Rutherford and Tony Banks throughout the show. The musician’s son, 20-year-old Nic Collins, played drums in his dad’s place.

“Tonight is a very special night. Of course, we’re playing in London. It’s the last stop of our tour, and it’s the last show for Genesis,” Phil told the crowd. “It’s difficult for us to believe that you still came out to see it. I guess after tonight we’ve all got to get real jobs.”
