Pitbull reveals career inspiration from Will Smith
'Go Girl' hitmaker Pitbull has revealed that singer and actor Will Smith has become something of an influence on the way he's looking at his own career at the moment.
Pitbull, who has the official theme song for the new 'Men In Black III', told Billboard.com that the Fresh Prince superstar is something of a "blueprint" to him and makes him feel as though he can make the transition from music to acting successfully:
"It's an honor, it's a blessing. More than a movie, it's a business, it's a franchise. So to be able to study what they've got going on… I was down in Cancun for the upfront, with Will (Smith), Josh (Brolin), with Tommy (Lee Jones) being an amazing actor. I'm not only studying the franchise, I'm also studying Will."
He explained that Smith is the "blueprint of being someone who went from music to movies, and movies to being an entrepreneur."
