Jada Pinkett Smith Book Debuts at Number 3 on Amazon Behind Rachel Maddow, “Killers of the Flower Moon”


After eviscerating Will Smith and her marriage on every media platform available, Jada Pinkett Smith did not debut at number 1 this morning.

On Amazon, Jada’s “Worthy” starts at number 3 behind Rachel Maddow’s “Prequel: An American Fight Against Facism,” and David Grann’s “Killers of the Flower Moon.”

You have to give Jada’s publicist credit. No stone has gone unturned. Even last night she appeared on Colbert, despite the host having COVID. She’s been on every talk show, made videos galore, she’s talking to people on the street.

But all the negativity may cause a backlash. So far on Amazon there are just a couple of reviews. Three of them are pans, one is positive. The overall feeling is that people want Jada to stop. She gets it, so now she’s contradicting herself, saying she’s working on her marriage. LOL. She may be drugging Will Smith at this point.

“Killers of the Flower Moon,” meantime, opens Thursday night as a Martin Scorsese movie. Last night’s premiere and screenings produced rave reviews all over social media. It’s the best movie of the year.
