Jaden and Willow Smith, who are 16 and 14 years-old respectively, did an interview for New York Times T Magazine. They are ridiculous.
“They’re just kids,” you’re thinking, “go easy on them!”
I get it. But read on, because I can almost guarantee you’ll feel the same.
Jaden, you’ll recall, was very public about the fact that he doesn’t believe in traditional schooling. Their parents, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith have funded a school based on Scientology teachings, which is also not in line with public education.
So, in this interview we hear such gems as:
Willow: ” I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.”
Jaden: “Right, because you have to live. There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living.”
Jaden: “And the feeling of being like, this is a fragment of a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made.”
and then there’s…
Willow: “That’s what I do with novels. There’re no novels that I like to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it’s the best thing.”
but what about…
Willow: “Me and Jaden just figured out that our voices sound like chocolate together. As good as chocolate tastes, it sounds that good.”
and on the topic of school…
Jaden: “You never learn anything in school. Think about how many car accidents happen every day. Driver’s ed? What’s up? I still haven’t been to driver’s ed because if everybody I know has been in an accident, I can’t see how driver’s ed is really helping them out.”
But it’s fine that he hates school – because he still has goals…
Jaden: “I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. And when I say craziest, I mean, like, I want to do like Olympic-level things. I want to be the most durable person on the planet.”
Wow. I mean, that happened.
