Jaden Smith, son of Will and Jada, brother of Willow, is quite an interesting kid.
Here’s a little taste:
Q. What have you been reading?
WILLOW: Quantum physics. Osho.
JADEN: “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and ancient texts; things that can’t be pre-dated.
Q. I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?
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: 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. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.
Yes, while you are slaving away at your pitiful rat-like existence, the Smith kids are boning up on some “ancient texts” and manipulating the space-time continuum.
At best, these are the musings of normal teenagers who’ve let fame go to their heads. At worst, it’s the passive aggressive ramblings of juvenile narcissists. But one thing’s for sure — it’s incredibly fun to read.
In my opinion, Jaden’s Twitter feed is even more interesting, and I first had the pleasure of reading the young actor’s musings last year. It’s hard to gauge exactly where Jaden Smith is coming from here. He once attended the now-defunct New Village Leadership Academy, founded by his mega-famous parents Will and Jada Smith, which came under fire for teaching a Scientology-based curriculum.
Either way, enjoy.
