Jada Pinkett-Smith used her social network account to explore the question "Are we bullying our young artists?"
Smith, 41, is the mother of two highly visible young artists, Jaden Smith, 14, a rapper, and Willow Smith, 12, a former singer who retired to just be a kid.
"Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19 year old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about," says, referring to Justin Beiber, who cancelled a concert after his bizarre behavior was criticized in the media last week.
Jada goes on to say that Bieber and artists such as Rihanna and Taylor Swift are simply working hard to support their families and to provide paychecks to their employees.
"How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them?," she asks.
That's all well and good, but the entertainment business is dog eat dog. Many adults have fallen victim to the pitfalls of the entertainment industry.
Children need guidance and direction to protect them from the hazards of the music industry.
Mrs. Smith should be asking herself why she would allow her children to be subjected to such abuse when she has the financial means to provide a safe and secure environment for them outside of the public eye.
