Wicked Wisdom Faces Uphill Battle For Acceptance At Ozzfest 2005

Band Photo: Ozzy Osbourne (?)

Sky Showbiz has posted the following report about Wicked Wisdom's recent addition to the Ozzfest Lineup:

Jada Pinkett Smith faces an uphill struggle to be accepted on the heavy metal circuit, despite the backing of Ozzy Osbourne.

The Hollywood actress and her pop metal band Wicked Wisdom are at the receiving end of all sorts of threats after Ozzy included them in the line-up for Ozzfest. "Wicked Wisdom will be pelted by every loose object on the Ozzfest grounds," one comment on the Ozzfest website claimed.

Her band, who supported Britney Spears in Europe on her Onyx Hotel tour last year have also opened for Papa Roach - but clearly this is not the sort of recommendation wanted by metal fans.

"If they opened for Britney Spears, then they must suck," another Ozzfest-lover said. "This is going to cause a ****ing riot... Bring your steel-toed boots!" claimed another.

Apparently, Sharon Osbourne is a big fan of Jada's band and that is the reason that they've made it into the line-up.

They'll be joining the likes of Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Velvet Revolver at the festival which opens in Mansfield, Massachusetts, on 15 July 2005.

Jada is clearly following in the footsteps of her acting rapper of a husband Will Smith - they must make up the most multi-talented house in Hollywood.

i agree with broken .... how much more do you really need to know than "Britney Spear's Opening Act", its a fukking joke that this band is playing ozzfest ....

to post 9, whats wrong with hardcore? .... i love breakdowns, i think hardcore is awesome live, usually badass pits and tons of crowd energy ....

anyway, hopefully this will start a revolt against ozzfest and stop the pillaging of metal fans across the U.S. .... $100 for a pit pass is a fukking joke, $52 to sit 100 yards away from the stage on the lawn, ALSO A JOKE ....

I'm going to the SOTU tour .... its cheap ($30 here) and has 3 of my favorite bands (Lamb of God, Strapping Young Lad, Norma Jean) .... AND TONS OF CORE BANDS :) ..... and its a general admission show so i can pit just a few feet from the stage! I'm excited!

Yeah...they can't be that bad. They only opened for Britney Spears! And they're only going to be on Ozzfest! There should be no reason to relate Britney, or anything that isn't heavy music to Ozzfest. I completely agree, there should be NO acceptance for Wicked Wisdom. As Randy Blythe said, heavy music is the realest form of music. And Wicked Wisdom is NOT heavy music. It's just more manufactured cow dung.

i completely agree that this is bullsh**. there should be no way that an opening act for britney spears should ever be even mentioned in the same paragraph as an ozzfest band. and the fact that she is a "rapper's" wife means that there will probably be some rapping or r&b shiit in there. but the good thing is, this means i can sleep in a little longer because there is no way im gonna get up at 6 to get there by 830 to see this bullsh**

1. usually the music is f***in computer generated
2. the sh** is to f***in light
3. Will Smith's f***in wife and shes black, Wills i rapper to, thats all to say

Bad Mother f***in band lets name good bands Children of bodom, Iron Maiden, Mastodon, Arch Enemy, hypocrisy, In Flames, Black Sabbath, ECT..

now bad f***in piss of rotten sh** bands britney( im a whore) spears, yellow (we suck d***) card, Greenday, Evenanansce ( put amy lee into the big red van) and so on they all suck
a quick f***in solution here goes:
get together for a one time only appearance by Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza ( craziest mother f***ers ever) and fly them to the fisrt ozzfest date. Then when Wicked Wisdom comes on and jada smith goes over to the mic the song " homocidal" cmoes on she looks confused and bad luck crashes the stage and the band out with trade mark barbwire bats, bottle rockets and various weapons, they then trash all stafge equipment and set the stage on fire, finally they drag odff the brused and bloody jada to the Big
Red "rape mobil" Van

End of f***in problem

please ozzfest or someday bet the bad luck 13 to end this mess

I think the overlooked point here is that the music festival in question is called "Ozzfest". Meaning, if Ozzy wants it on the tour with him, Ozzy puts it on the tour with him. If you think you can make yourself into the self proclaimed "Prince of Darkness", and everyone believe it for as long as they've believed it with Ozzy, then you can have your own "fill-in-the-blank-fest" and put whoever you want on the tour. Until that point I wouldn't be questioning what one of the most influential metal madmen of all time wants to do with his own, personal "fest". (granted, he is a burned out doper, but alas it's still his festival)

At the heighth of the metal movement (when bands like slayer and metallica were still young) we would have laughed at bands like Slipknot being included in a metal fest, but times have changed. I for one am allright with new sounds, and am not going to feel threatened by them. I say give the girl a chance. She might suck, but you might hear something you like.

Just my $.02

Bottomline, yeah, they opened for Britany Spears, but you gotta start somewhere. They're just trying to find their place. Maybe they don't fit in @ Ozzfest, and they'll find out soon enough. Gasp! What if they do fit in? What would you waste your ignorance on then?

Okay...please don't bash me I'm not a fan of MM or Jada. I am a professional music reviewer and avid Metal fan. But MM is a good band they hit the R&B and Rock sound right on with just a touch of metal thrown in. They are not a "Brittany" act. Mrs. Smith does posses a great singing voice and I believe there band will go on to do well. But Ozzfest is a METAL tour and MM just will not fit in. So instead of taking on the Neanderthal image that is pressed upon us metal heads and doing something that could get us kicked out of the show, just take that 20mins that they are on stage to get a beer, or a smoke or pick up on some hottie.

Yeah, that's it... start a riot, so it'll hit the national media... once again starting the furor in the media about how ultraviolent Ozzfest and other shows like it always are, never mind that we know they're not... the politicians will get in an uproar again, and there will be so much pressure that a lot of venues will end up cancelling the shows... congratulations, you just ruined Ozzfest for everyone after you and got a nice criminal record for yourself.

Don't think it could happen? Remember that Clear Channel pretty much owns most of the venues Ozzfest is playing. CC's president is an avid supporter of George W., so he definitely has his ear. And remember, culture-wise, at least, W. is trying to send this country back to the 1950s.

Don't like the band? Fine, don't watch them. Go do something else during their set. It's not like Ozzfest hasn't had crappy bands in the past... And I agree, so what if they're black... if white people are allowed to rap, black people should be allowed to rock hard... did anyone mention Body Count? (I missed it if they did.) If the Osbournes deem them worthy, there must be something about them. I say give them a chance. You don't like them, wander off somewhere until the next band.

And about the Britney thing... how much you wanna bet Britney (or Britney's people) booked them to open without hearing the music AT ALL, thinking, "Hey it's Will Smith's wife, it's gotta be cool," and the band was so eager that they took the offer... so blind booking + big fat payday = mismatched opening act. I'm not saying that's what happened, but it seems likely.

First off - WW is going to be the first band on the SECOND STAGE. The SECOND STAGE!! When is that? About 12:00? No one's going to be there! Anyway, the Osbornes like them, so I'll give them a chance. If there's one thing I hate the most, it has to be buttholes that hate someone (before they even HEAR the music) enough to say they're going to throw something at them. If I see ANYONE throwing ANYTHING at WW at the Camden show, I will personally walk up to them and KNOCK THEM OUT. Give them a chance. If you don't like them - heckle them - don't throw stuff. Or, just walk away - if you want to throw stuff, hit the beer vendors. $6.50 for a beer? They need to get nailed - not the bands!

I'm with Old Skool on this one. I can't find even a track of theirs on the web anywhere, so that means their probably just finishing the recording. Not to mention the fact that they might actually be good. When I first heard about it I was kinda p***ed too, but that was when I thought Jada was doing typical R&B bullsh**. When I found out it was a rock band, I wasn't so p***ed anymore. So if you don't want to see them, show up at 12:30. They'll probably be off stage by then. So shut the hell up. I'll knock people out at the Sommerset show for throwing things too, so don't.

Ozzie is the Godfather of Metal. Anybody who suggests anything else is and idiot. He is the most recognizable figure in metal still today. His music is just as powerful today as when it was orginally released. He is probably the most copied metal artist out there. I'm talking true metal not this crap angry people listen to. I think they call it "Death Metal". Ozzie is the pulse of heavy metal. He has kept this medium in the spotlight during this current reign of rap "music" that plagues or nation today. If Ozzie says they are good enough to play then I will listen with an open mind and then form my opinion. People who limit themselves don't really like music anyway and should be stifled. These current bands most of you listen to now aren't true metal anyway. In the metal world there is a fine line between music and noise. Todays artist make "angry at the world" noise. Ozzie should be applauded for opening up his venue to feature artists who keep the spirit of metal alive. All of you nay sayers should burn your limited brains because you aren't using them anyway. And it's not "selling out" it's called making a living.

Well, it has been interesting reading everyone's comments to say the least. I am a music lover & by that I mean I love music from all genres (Heavy Metal, Alternitive, Jazz, Classical, Celtic, New Age, Rap, Hip hop, R&B, Folk & even a bit of bluegrass & Techno) I appreciate true musician ship artist who Write,Produce,Arrange,Compose & Perform their own music. However I must concur with the lot of you on this fact, that is that OZZFEST may not be the proper venue for Wicked Wisdom. I have not heard any of their music so I can't make an informed definitive dicision. On the other hand as with any production where there's multiple bands with a wide variety of styles there are going to be a few bands you don't like, it is inevitable & we all know this & it does not however give cause to moronic & barbaric behavior. There are a lot of bands I didn't like the first time I heard them over time as they kept producing cd's I heard something I liked & ended up buying every cd that band recorded & that band was Metallica!!! There is a high probabillity that no one will like Wicked Wisdom & if you feel this way then you can mark them off your check list & adjust your schedule accordingly. You have a choice...Go to the show or not...Go to the show & omit Wicked Wisdom from your listening pleasure but you do not have the right to show your morbid stupidity to incite a riot & ruin everyone elses evening who paid hansomely to enjoy just like you did. Those of you who are incline do so are only there to for a guitar riff or scale or drum beat to bang your head to & pickel your silly little minds without giving consideration to the effort put into lyrical content . You fail to grasp the meaning of the songs & therefore the artist essence escapes you! Your not a true fan you're a fickle fascinated psuedo imitation wanabe!!!!!!!!!

this is on their website..."setting the record straight" about Wicked Wisdom

"Wicked Wisdom are going to set the record straight at the Ozzfest tour.


1. Please DO NOT mistake Jada Pinkett Smith for another Ashlee Simpson. Jada can actually sing, write her own songs and perform.

2. Please DO NOT mistake Wicked Wisdom for a ‘pop’ band. Wicked Wisdom is NOT a pop band in any shape or form. The mp3 clip that is floating around of Wicked Wisdom sound checking is just the band messing around and does not represent what they play.

3. Just because Jada is a strikingly beautiful woman, don’t think for one second that her backing tracks are soft, oh no.
The Wicked Wisdom band play HARD metal tracks similar to hardcore metal bands like "Metallica", "System of A Down Boy" and "Nine Inch Nails".

4. Beautiful women follow Wicked Wisdom, that’s right, you’ll be surrounded by some famous supermodels and miss world contestants of different nationalities at Wicked Wisdom gigs. Would you metal fans like to get caught misbehaving and acting like mindless hooligans in front of the most beautiful women you’ll ever lay your eyes on?. Would you metal fans like to ruin your chances of getting laid???

5. Prepare to be converted, that’s right. For those people who will be witnessing the great Wicked Wisdom for the first time at the Ozzfest tour, Wicked Wisdom would subsequently be on your list of all time favourite bands. "

Did you ever think that maybe it would be worse if NOBODY showed up to watch them play. I mean if you riot, it's just going to get them more attention. If everybody just leaves when they're playing then they'll just stop. Rioting is stupid and it just shows that ozzfest attendees are a bunch of ignorant people who don't really know anything about good music and they just want to hear a bunch of screaming and that they can't actually understand. So for those idiots that think rioting would make the situation worse, just think about it. The bigger and louder the riot, the more attention they get and the more they win and you lose..

It's be a lat April Fool's joke, but nevermind.

Are you serious? That's from their website? Boy, they really like to paint the outside corner of the base with that one.

My counterpoints(why? Because I want to dammit!)

1. Why not mistake her for Ashlee Simpson? She acts and is in a band too. Logically, she's like Ashlee Simpson.

2. Ok, since when is opening for Britney Spears any indication of you not being "pop?" Just a thought. ALSO! The term "pop" is actually used for something popular, so I don't get that point at all. Same thign with opening for Papa Roach. WHO CARES?

3. DONT YOU EVER COMPARE YOURSELF TO NINE INCH NAILS! EVER! Same thing with Metallica. YOU GOT THAT?

4. So what if Gisele Bundchen follows Wicked Wisdom? Like I give a sh** what supermodels listen to? Besides, there are plenty of other "Beautiful women" at shows. COME ON! I'm at shows all the time.

5. Hmmm....this one is a bit egotistical, but she should be calling her band "great" when they haven't even put out a full-length album yet. I know, you can boost your band, and there's nothing really wrong with that, it's just that you could wait until people DON'T have to download something of yours to listen to. It limits your audience immensly.

So what's this mean? Nothing really. Just that they're expecting every young woman and teen to take their middle-aged mothers and possibly even Grandma can go along, to Ozzfest.

Hmm.....would I take my mom to Ozzfest? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! You're kidding right? Actually, I'd take her if she wanted to go, other than that, no. NO WAY!

I've calmed down since the initial shock of learning that "soul artiste" w.w. are going to be there to rock the house. that'is just the way the corporate cookie crumbles...It could have been worse: ashlee simpson, anyone?

there is nothing wrong with originality, pop music, soul music, etc. as long as it is good music. wicked wisdom is not good music. this is not to say that the w.w. musicians cannot play but... oh by the way, for all of you that dig the "rapper" will smith, you're in luck. I heard that there is a good possibility that he will be joining his wife on stage with some "rapping." When jada sings, veins start popping on her neck and forehead, and that is very heavy metal! I reckon that it will be hilarious if anything. So please folks, don't go to the bathroom, don't sell your tickets. Have a great big laugh!

I was just surfing the net and found this message board . . . it's funny to me that so many people seem so passionate about something that is really of no consequence whatsoever. Next year, there'll be another band that everyone says sucks, and the message board will start off with the typical "throw stuff at them."

There'll be a few voices of reason, just like in this message board, and after everyone's done complaining, the band they're complaining about will have won because of the hype.

If WW playing Ozzfest equals the end of the world for you, you're the equivalent of a musical Star Wars geek. It's ok, really.

DO YOUR MUSIC A FAVOR AND BE A LITTLE LESS TRASHY AND GROW THE f*** UP. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS NOT GO OR IF YOU ALREADY BOUGHT A TICKET WAIT TILL THEY ARE DONE TO ARRIVE OR LEAVE WHEN THEY PLAY, OR BETTER YET BE AN ADULT AND IGNORE THEM IF THEY ARE GOING TO BE ON THE SECOND STAGE.

To IT IS OBVIOUS,
it appears to me that if you have nothing better to do than surf the net and find this message board, then you need some more hobbies. Secondly, not all of us on here are b****ing for no reason about this band. Yes, there are a few on here that are whining about it and getting all defensive and threatening to throw sh** and start riots. These kids ARE idiots. I'm willing to think that they are simple high-schoolers who only enjoy heavy metal b/c it makes them different. Same reason high school kids dress goth/punk/skater/homey/etc. Trust me I know. I used to be one of them. I'm now 23 and "grew up." This doesn't mean I still don't love dying my hair, getting tattoos/piercings, and listening to heavy metal and moshing and crowd-surfing. This just means that I don't do it simply to get a rise out of people like your typical H.S.er does. Some kids grow and realize that they looked like idiots, others grow up and realize they love the music, but still respect everyone else's choices of music/clothes/etc. Others just never grow up and other still grow up and have to suppress their creative style of dress b/c of their work environment. I am in that predicament right now. I'd love to wear my big a$$ boots, color my hair, get tattoos that I don't have to hide. Sadly, the "real world" is still prejudice and you'll all learn (if some of you haven't already) that at times we DO need to conform. Trust me....even that word..conform...makes me cringe and want to vomit!

Anywho....don't come on here saying we are all idiots because we don't think Jada's band deserves to be on the ticket. There are some in here who probably need meds to help with their depression/anger issues but other than that, some of us are making actual arguments here.

Unusual - there are a few people here who are NOT representing the metal genre. They are just redneck bigots who think that just cause she's black that gives them more ammo. "Cause we all knows dat negros is da devil!" Riiiiiiiight....

Don't make this a race issue, Unusual. No one gives two sh**s that she's black. I could care less if she were a black midget with autism. The point is, as someone above made, they don't even have a freakin CD yet!!! They got added b/c of Sharon's decision to put in one of her "friends." Plain and simple. All of those who would have killed to be put on the ticket...those who worked their asses off to "make it."

So no we don't hate her cause she's black (hello? Lajon from Sevendust?) we could care less. the pint is she doesn't deserve it cause she's only on their cause her and Sharon are buddies. It's a protest thing that people are gonna be acting on. Not the fact that she sucks (which hey she may not...we'll see...i'll give her the benefit of the doubt) but that she hasn't done sh** to "make it" herself...

Same thing if the President put all his buddies in the House, whether they were responsible enough to be there or not....

To Bethany: Those artists you mentioned earlier Ani Difranco, Prince, Tori Amos are true musicians who have total control of their work & also have their own recording studios. Ani difranco is an awesome poet/song writer she walks it like she talks it too. Prince plays 21 different instruments & has total control of every aspect of his work.

I sit here reading this and can't help but laugh at you all. I find it so amusing that all I keep seeing is the fact they opened up for Britney Spears. Please, there isn't a band around that would not take the exposure regardless of who was heading lining, even if it were Barry Manilow. Opening up for Britney Spears is a hell of a lot better than what the bands went through on Battle for Ozzfest, that was puts the sell in sell out...Get a grip, the reality is, are you really gonna be sobber enough to even realize they are playing....hahahahaha....grow the f*** up.

Your right bradisp***ed and fan_metallica, just because she's black and just because she's will smith's wife, has nothing to do with it....it would of been a whole lot easier for her to try and break into the pop field and be right up there with the other groups, but think about how hard it is for her, not only being black, but being will smith's wife and try to break into the hardest area of music to break into. She faces a rough and tough crowd, just the fact that she is going to do it and knowing what she is going to walk into, I say, best of luck. It just boils down to if you don't like it, don't listen....you have the power to walk away. She could of broke into an area of music that controlled her, obviously she knows what she wants to do, I say let her do it.

MESHUGGAH AND TOOL ARE THE ONLY GOOD BANDS TO EVER GRACE THE OZZFEST STAGE, slipknot ok too. But I think the majority off you all have horrible taste in music. You are also all horrible human beings. And as for OZZY and Sharon, I hate them both. Black sabbath blows.

They might as well be an instrumental band you can't understand a word they say anyway...not a whole lot different from rap

if you read this on other thread skip it, since this topic is such a "world shattering" event i posted this here too.

God this race issue is "Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally" tired.

I think everyone here with more than half a single functioning brain cell know that the race issue is utterlly absurd.

Half the people with racial problems are those (i live in Louisville, I have every right to say this) deep south dwelling, uneducated, dentist needing, sister violating, pink skinned, extra chromosome having, Kid Rock worshipping (ah, the hypocrisy), confederate flag waving, "The south shall rise again" inbreds who had fathers that beat them and left them thus they deficate their own bed until thier 11 and have their first sexual experience with livestock.

People like that are most commonlly racist, those people --NEED-- a bad guy...and Pedro or Rashawn will do just fine.

Other racists come in affluent white skinned neo-con homes. These are people who don't see much of of the "colored folk" as they call them. So when they see a guy with darker skin pigment crossing the street they lock the doors of their 2005 Mercedes GasChugger XL. These people also have an entrenched theory that because they are college educated they are correct in their media and family induced fears. The culture divide between these kinds of people and the African American community is so outlandish and well documented entire movies and sitcoms have been based on it.

Then theres the sad and gigantic number of people who are subconsciouslly racist. They have nothing against other races and even tend to get along with them pretty well, but their less likely to hold a door for a African American guy or thank a Hispanic waitress for her service...this can also amount to smaller tips, increased hostility in a discussion, and getting pulled over by cops, AKA racial profiling.

Will Smith doesnt suck because he's black, he sucks because his music is pure cookie cutter kid safe pop. The man has decent acting cred though, so he has my respect in that regard. Jada is more of a concern due to the sheer fact that she opened for Brittney Spears, this will not be a band that sounds like Lamb of God, Trivium or some other Ozzfest candidate.

And since racism per capita increases the further south you go, exempting some regions, the more likely Wicked Wisdom + Will Smith is going to be poorly recieved.....that and they probablly WILL suck.

It's as simple as that. And sorry , but Alice Cooper is just "angry" because his fame is over and nobody listens to his music anymore.

Thats reasonable enough(153). and i agree, the band DOES deserve a chance but I think anyone who knows anything about the history of tour mis-matches understands when a bad storm is brewing.

Case one:

Marilyn Manson and Hole Tour of 99......FANS OF BOTH BANDS NEARLY KILLED EACHOTHER.

Case two:

Weezer and Cold Tour 2001....Fans threw their coke bottle glasses at Cold for having anger in their songs........versus sweaters, angsty bad proms wishing and other "revenge of the nerds" themes in their music....no band can tour with weezer unless they cry as much or more than the average emo band.

Lolapalooza 2004...the lineup did not make sense. It was SO eclectic that it couldn't attract enough members of any demographic. They had to scrap the thing cus it was doing so poorly.....You do not put obscure bands (Flaming Lips, Wilco, The Pixies) new up and comers(the Killers and Modest mouse) and a circus on a bill and cross your fingers.

Putting people who are fans of Slayer and a band that that is pure pop-rock (Wicked Wisdom) in the same environment is a recipe for disaster, just as the 3 situations above were.
