Jada Pinkett Smith is glad she stood by her rock band after receiving death threats when they joined the line-up of Ozzy Osbourne's music festival, as the frightening incident became a "learning experience".
The actress/musician launched a music career in 2002 by forming her band Wicked Wisdom and she was delighted when they were invited to play at Osbourne's famous touring festival Ozzfest.
The move sparked anger from metal fans, and Pinkett Smith was bombarded by nasty messages, but she stood her ground and played at Ozzfest - and she's proud she was able to continue in the face of such adversity.
She tells Britain's Metro newspaper, "When I played metal music, I was mocked. I got death threats when I was added to the Ozzfest lineup but I stuck with it. At the end of that, people got on board. Me doing metal was one of my biggest learning experiences. A lot of my success is down to not being afraid... The Ozzfest kids were like, 'Hell no,' and I got tons of death threats. I didn't pay attention to them."
Pinkett Smith is also full of praise for her movie star husband Will Smith for helping her through the traumatic time, adding, "Will dealt with it. I just thought it was people on their computers with nothing better to do than spew stupid c**p. It got to the point my husband considered, but never did which I respect him for, asking me not to do it."
