Jada Speaks Words of Wisdom

 Jada Pinkett-Smith covers Essence magazine in the buff. She is giving us some much needed advice on practicing self-love, and acceptance. Her are some excerpts below:

Jada On the statement she wanted to make
“Lay your eyes on the beauty of black women! That’s the statement. The black woman is very spiritual. She is the ultimate mother, the ultimate of everything. We connect to all things. Lay your eyes on that.”
Jada on her flaws
“We, as women, have to love ourselves. Whatever you look like, you better be comfortable with it. … All my life black men have told me how flawed I am. People may look at that picture and not necessarily be able to identify my woes about my own body, but I have them. It’s just that I’ve gotten to the point where I’m like, ‘This is me’ and I embrace that. I’m getting older. I’ve got wrinkles in my face that I didn’t before, but it’s my face!”
Jada on posing nude
“When I walked out there and disrobed, I felt like a queen. I felt like the world was mine. Like there was this power just emanating from my person. Like there was nothing I couldn’t do.”
Jada’s advice on self-love
Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? Because I bet that if you love it authentically, everybody else around you will. They won’t even have a chance to see anything else, because you will have a shield of confidence around you. That is a powerful gift that God gives us that most of us rarely use.”
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!

Not to take away from the meaning, but did they darken her up for the sake of Essence's audience? That was so not necessary cause we absolutely luv Jada just the way she is. Jada is far from needing to "appear" to be blacker than she already is because she is a sista in every good way.

You know what? I don't think they did Pebbles cause she has a few more pics elsewhere looking very bronzed. A lot of people darken up as they age. She looks beautiful either way.

Woman’s beauty lace wedding dresses with the passing years, so does the vintage wedding dresses. Slipping into a piece of vintage clothing bestow the magic of provenance upon your original attractiveness. Our wedding dresses 2012 collectibles capture this very essence of historical statement by flashing back to the pristine demeanor while infusing some modern interpretation. Then and there, your cherished memory flows out with the singing of Yesterday Once More.
