Jada Pinkett-Smith on Arsenio Hall Show (Winter 2014)
Jada speaks on her relationship with Tupac:
Pac was probably one of the first male figures that I had in my life that saw the beauty and the talent and my intelligence, separated from sex. That’s something that a child, a young girl usually gets from her father. I didn’t have that. Pac was the first one… that… it wasn’t about sex. It was about, ‘You? You’re a beautiful woman. You’re talented. You’re strong. I respect you and you are MY girl! You’re gonna sit right here and I’m gonna protect you! I’mma make sure, if nothing else, you get what you need!’ And that’s what our relationship was like. We kind of did that for each other.
That’s [rap], what people knew of Pac, but he was so much more. We went to the Baltimore School for the Arts so we really were able to have access to all kinds of music, all kinds of things. Pac was a lover of Shakespeare. A lot of people don’t know that. Pac loved rock music, too. He loved metal just as much as I did. It was just that his gift was rap. He was a rapper. One of his idols was Rakim.
Well, I liked Metallica!

Gymnosomata, commonly known as Sea Angels. An apt name- the sea angels are the ethereal, translucent, fluttering angels of the sea.
In hard scientific terms, they’re small swimming sea slugs, but we’ll pass over that for now and just admire how delicately beautiful these wonderful creatures are.
