Will Smith’s Kids are Either Trolling this Interviewer or They Are Nuts
Jaden and Willow Smith were interviewed by the New York Times. First of all, some things are said that make it sound like Willow and Jaden don’t go to school.
And Willow added, quote, "I went to school for one year. It was the best experience but the worst experience. The best experience because I was, like, 'Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.' But it was the worst experience because I was depressed."
Willow is 14 and Jaden is 16. Is she saying that she’s only gone to school for ONE YEAR in her life??? Were they homeschooled? If they were, I would question the credentials of whoever their teacher is because they go on to say a number of things that are either convoluted or counter-factual.
Here's what Jaden had to say about TIME: "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. It's proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It's relative to beings and other places."
This sounds like someone had Einstein’s theory of special relativity explained to them by Matthew McConaughey’s character in True Detective. Jaden also doesn’t think much of fancy book learnin’…
"School is not authentic because it ends. It's not true, it's not real. Our learning will never end. The school that we go to every single morning, we will continue to go to.. 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."
What…the…literal…eff? Jaden, the reason everybody you know has been in an accident is because their parents all bought them Ferraris for their 15th birthdays and they went out and ran into a pole because, why not Daddy will just buy me another one. People take drivers ed and still accidents happen?? That’s like saying “I got the wrong change from the cashier at McDonalds so what’s the point of even teaching math?”
As you read on, you get the feeling that the “school that they go to every single morning” is the “school” of their own privileged inerrancy.
Willow revealed her very insular reading habits . . . quote, "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."
Yeah, Willow, but did you ever give Shakespeare a real chance? I mean, he’s no Willow Smith, but he does know how to write an occasionally competent page or two.
And here's Jaden on how much better their music is than everyone else's . . . quote, "We don't think a lot of the music out there is that cool. So we make our own music.
You know the kids born after 1990 who were brought up to always win a trophy and whose every doody was the most special little doody ever laid?
Don’t the Smith children sound like that, except amplified by a lifetime of fabulous privilege and wealth? These kids probably never scribbled with a crayon on the wall without being told what unique talent they possessed.
Willow also had a take on babies . . . quote, "When they're in the stomach, they're so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they're shocked by this harsh world."
That’s…not…I’m really sure bone and ligature development is an involuntary action.
And Jaden gave us this insight into BABIES . . . quote, "When babies are born, their soft spots bump: It has, like, a heartbeat in it. That's because energy is coming through their body, up and down.
"It's prana energy because they still breathe through their stomach. They remember. Babies remember."
This reminds me of those magnets with random words on them that you stick on your refrigerator…except nobody’s taken the time to put them into a coherent sentence yet.
Oh, and here’s some of there so, so very specialest musical talent for you…Jaden raps over a Pink Floyd song.
Still better than Bieber.
