Will Smith Pays Tribute To Jada Pinkett On "Black Girls Rock" VIDEO

Hollywood superstar, Will Smith, paid loving tribute to Jada Pinkett Smith on "Black Girls Rock," a BET special that aired on Sunday.

Jada Pinkett was the recipient of the Star Power Award, and gave an impassioned speech about women.

Will Smith amusingly recalled laying in bed with Jada when he got a Google alert about his wife supposedly filing for divorce, a rumor that's been consistently debunked several times.
"In that brief moment, my heart jumped for a second. And I started to imagine what my life would've been like without that woman," Will said.
Will then addressed Jada directly, saying, "For living your dreams out loud, baby, for modeling an alternate way of being in this world, I present to you, along with BET, the Black Girls' Star Power Award. Baby, c'mon and get it!" 
Jada then came on stage and got more than just her trophy.

In her acceptance speech, Jada gave a tribute of her own, to all the women in the audience and those watching at home.
Jada concluded saying, "while there is still a 'long way to go in the fights for equality and diversity, we are enough as we are."
And, with her daughter watching in the audience, the "Gotham" star said, "As my little Afro-futurist Willow tells me, 'I am you. You are me. We are one.'" 
The Smiths then walked off stage arm in arm.
