Jada Pinkett-Smith Chops Off Hair – New Pixie Hair Do?!?

Jada Pinkett-Smith is taking it back to the old school Jada with short hair. The actress has been seen around town sporting a new pixie do. I’m so use to Jada with long hair now, it may take a while to adjust, but I do believe I like it.

Jada Pinkett Cuts Hair Short Pixie Do Jada Pinkett Smith Chops Off Hair   New Pixie Hair Do?!?

Although this hairstyle is a hot topic, Jada Pinkett-Smith debuts her new style while discussing a documentary for CNN on human trafficking. Jada discusses how easy it is for women to slip into a lifestyle that leads to prostitution, especially in Atlanta, where young women view stripping as a way of being independent.

Young women were perceiving stripping as way of being independent and bold. I missed that. I think that has something to do with my age. I was just talking to my girlfriend, and I was like hey, when we were coming up, stripping was the bottom. The stripping culture was not glorified…If you were stripping there was problem. You were on drugs; something was wrong. Something was wrong.

Whereas today, that’s not it. Girls look at strippers like…I want that. I totally didn’t see it until I talked to his girl today.

It’s an interesting video message. Human trafficking is something dear to Jada Pinkett-Smith, and I can relate to her words. I’m a little older, my generation started glorifying stripping, so I can remember when it was taboo, but I can also remember being one of the only girls hanging out in the “shake-spot”, before it was apart of the norm, thinking nothing of it. I have friends that have put themselves through college and law school because of stripping. But then you grow up and you see the problem with glorifying something that can lead many women into a lifestyle of decline, or even worse, human trafficking. Check out Jada’s words below:

  1. Jada is looks very good with short hair.

  2. Thank you for posting this, because I wouldn’t have saw it if you hadn’t. I am 26 and I can see why young girls glorify stripping. I don’t, I see it as degrading, but it seems like the hiphop culture make the strip scene glamorous when clearly it’s not. Recently a young stripper was murder her in Atlanta, that kinda woke ppl up.

  3. It’s interesting the correlation between stripping and human traffiking . I’d have to really research this because I’m not sure how closely related the two are. I don’t glorify stripping but I also don’t look down on women who do. Like you’ve mention some woman put themselves through school going on to more prominent careers. While it’s fast money and there’s other ways to make money I understand the temptation to get fast money. Education isn’t cheap and for something that’s a necessity it is far too expensive with more people going in debt and not making the salary they should make with their degrees. But that’s another topic. My issue though is how women continuously face the double standard of feeling comfortable in their sexuality. I can see how becoming a stripper or entering into a lifestyle of fast money can open the doors to dangerous encounters but are we talking about women who choose to strip or are we talking about young girls forced into stripping or human traffiking? That’s two different topics, because, while one makes the decision as an adult one doesn’t have the free will and the decision is made for her. I just don’t like it when a woman’s moral is questioned based on her decision to use her body as her means while a man’s isn’t. We’re continuing to send the wrong messages to young boys. We want woman to be wholesome and not raise boys to be men women want to be wholesome to? It doesn’t make sense. I think in some ways that’s why the younger generation, particularly women, are more open with being more sexual/and their sexuality. There’s the continued double standard they want to counteract. This topic opens the door for a much larger topic at hand I think.
