Actress Jada Pinkett Smith (wife of Will Smith) has revealed to UsMagazine.com that her favorite heavy metal bands are MASTODON, CROWBAR and SKINDRED.
During an appearance on the June 28, 2010 edition of "Lopez Tonight", comedian George Lopez's new talk show on TBS, Jada Pinkett Smith spoke about the experience of performing on the second stage of 2005's Ozzfest with her nu-metal rock band WICKED WISDOM.
"At first it was a little rough," she admitted. "I was getting death threats and all kinds of things But we went out there and after the first week, we got our feet on the ground. We finished in Florida, and we made ... somewhat of an impression."

In a June 2006 interview with KNAC.COM, Jada stated about playing the 2005 installment of Ozzy Osbourne's travelling festival, "It's so funny, because most of the bands at Ozzfest were so laid back. It's amazing to see that transformation in all the bands …leaving backstage and going onstage. It's two different energies. Every band that was on Ozzfest [in 2005] was just great and really wonderful to us. And I know it was probably really hard for them, because it was just like, 'What is this? We got Jada out here? This is bizarre.' But everybody was so cool and we had such a good time. We really did. AS I LAY DYING was really supportive, too."
WICKED WISDOM's self-titled debut album was released in February 2006 via 100% Womon/Suburban Noize Records.
