I don’t do interviews with people I don’t think have talent or relevance to the entertainment scene. But when I am presented with the opportunity to chat with someone with TRUE talent, determination and character, I do not hesitate. Kayla Brianna Smith, daughter of retired basketball legend Kenny “The Jet” Smith, may have been born into fame, however, she is one of the few offspring of celebrities with actual talent and drive. She’s gorgeous. She can sing. She has a great support system and a big heart.
