It’s ironic, if not unfortunate, that Brand Smith has turned the corner that it has.
For, while Will Smith has seen his career go from strength to strength on the back of his talent, genuine nature and ‘salt of the earth kinda guy’ positioning, the arrival of his children in the public eye have seen those admirable qualities overshadowed by ill advised attempts to turn them into household names.Array
While this haven’t taken away from the public’s love for ‘Big Willy‘, it’s clear that his ‘grounded’ persona doesn’t fall in line with that of his family’s…who seem anything but.
Not sure what we mean?
Well, meet us below to see what Jaden Smith- the grandson of a school administrator- had to say about education on Twitter last night.
Such a shame.
As long time fans of Will, we have to say that all of the above is pretty sad.
For, as anyone whose followed his career long enough will agree, the story of his from humble beginnings to deserved success are at times more appealing than the movies he stars in.
Unfortunate, as the lessons he oft shares about those humble beginnings seem to have fallen on deaf ears when it comes to his own children.
Sure, while everyone’s entitled to their own opinion, there’s a lot to be said about anyone who downplays the value of traditional education and how it empowers people from all walks of life…especially those without the luxuries and security afforded to Jaden.
For, while it may not always be obvious in the class room, school teaches students how to think- something we hope Jaden does the next time he tweets.
