Weigh In: Jaden & Willow Smith Slammed For Their ‘Weirdest Interview Yet’

Published: Monday 17th Nov 2014 by Rashad

They could be revolutionaries in the making or they could just be plain crazy.  And, if a recent New York Times interview is anything to judge by, more people are willing to bet the latter than the former.

Whatever you peg them, the Smith kids – Jaden and Willow – have certainly been earning their fair share of names from spectators as of late.  The elder Smith and his bevy of memorable quotes like “how can mirrors be real if our eyes aren’t real” and “if everyone dropped out of school we’d have a more intelligent society” have earned mix review from commenters who can’t decide of the former ‘Karate Kid’ is genius or nah.

Willow, on the other hand, has made just as many headlines for her outspoken nature.  Now, it seems the duo is poised to keep the side-eyes and raised eyebrows coming via an interesting New York Times interview that’s leaving many-a-head scratched.  Read some of the quotes below:

Via NYT:

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.

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.

You mentioned breathing earlier, and it’s also an idea that recurs in your songs.

WILLOW: Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.

JADEN: 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.

WILLOW: 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.

So is the hardest education the unlearning of things?

JADEN: Here’s the deal: 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.

WILLOW: 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.

So what’s next?

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.

    I appreciate that these kids are inquisitive but I don’t think they’ve quite grasped the concepts that they seem to think they could teach a college course on.

      It sounds crazy but it really makes sense if you think about school and education in general does not help unless you are well-rounded it’s important to have StreetSmarts as well as book smarts but still people Judge because they feel their parents are Scientologists which is their choice

  2. Molly November 17, 2014

    Tbh these 2 are a hot mess and I won’t be surprised if Blue ivy and North west act just the same

    • cici da baddest November 17, 2014

      kim and beyonce are morons and there kids will be the same

      • Molly November 17, 2014

        LOL!!!!! You said it not me. But I can agree.

      • Oh, So we doing this today!? November 17, 2014

        At least they have fathers… unlike ciara’s future and you pressed bittches on this site 🙂

      • Molly November 17, 2014

        Last time I checked Big Future was still alive sit tf down b****

      • bleeding gums November 17, 2014

        And your kids will be just as stupid if you’re going to teach them the difference between there, their and they’re

      • Oh, So we doing this today!? November 17, 2014

        @poormolly bitchh who you talking to? last time i checked future chucked up the deuces and peaced out on ciara. let me know when ciara is walking down the aisle muha! Good luck to ci booking that aisle that she speaks of kii 🙂 now sit back and hush it.

      • Tyler November 17, 2014

        @0h So We Doing This Today!?
        PREACH.
        You said it, not me….But I can agree lol

    • Special Delivery November 17, 2014

      lol I think you should worry more about baby Past. You know, coming from a broken family with a d***** bag dad who does not support you fuckss these kids up. But then again, no ones interested in a Lesser child for anyone to care how he acts.

  3. BLACKOUT TBH November 17, 2014

    These kids are living, BREATHING, proof that you shouldn’t be your child’s friend – you should be their damn parent. I’ll be damned if I ever have kids and they turn out like these hipster douchebags. Like, really…you’ve been through NOTHING in your life in relation to what 99% of the population has to go through. Shut up and take a number of seats equivalent to the number of drops in the Pacific.

    • Yea ok November 17, 2014

      Will and his wife are both VERY successful and are raising two kids who are reading books about quantum physics and asking questions about the world and their existence in it. Sounds like they are doing a fabulous job to me. Mad because the only thing your parents could teach you was how to apply for WIC?

      • BLACKOUT TBH November 18, 2014

        My late grandfather was a mayor and both my parents were successful artists in the 1980’s. As for me, I am university educated with an IQ of 124. So spare me your misinformed “shade” honey.
        The point is, these kids don’t seem to understand the importance of an education system and that the real issue we need to tackle is how to improve it rather than how to get rid of it so you can enquire and learn about the world in your own time. If that were the case a select, most likely privileged, few would be literate and reasonably successful while the rest would be sitting on their behind with the cognitive ability of a child way into their 20’s. Also, I may be wrong but the way I see it both these kids have Kanye-level God-complexes brewing which may lead to some serious feelings of entitlement and even sociopathic tendencies in later life. So no, I wouldn’t say they’re doing a “fabulous job” at all my dear.

      • Thlly November 18, 2014

        Yeeeeees! These kids are thinking. Thinking deep.

  4. cici da baddest November 17, 2014

    they are so f***** annoying like blah shut up and be kids

  5. Mark111 November 17, 2014

    They’re not wrong, but I think they try TOO hard to be deep. Sure time as in a day is just the amout of full rotation of the earth to meet back to the sun and our sense of time is only relevant to and on Earth. But you only have one life to live and you have to do things to get somewhere. I’m flad that these kids are smart, but they also need to enjoy their time being kids. You have the rest of your adult life to be this serious.

    • cc January 15, 2015

      Uuhhh, Yeah we learned about that in SCHOOL, IN SCIENCE CLASS.The difference: we actually have to give a f*** about what time it is because a regular person, with a regular job can’t just say f*** time. The point of all the totally warranted negativity is that these two dont live in the world and arent prepared for it. The thing about it is, THEY DONT HAVE TO BE. The gravitational pull of making it big is that once you do, you dont have to live in the real world any more. You are FREE to pursue the world and all it has to offer whenever you feel like it.
      These kids arent f****** geniuses just because they are free to pursue a DIFFERENT, NOT BETTER, education than the rest of us. Im sure scientology has its place in the world but until somebody explains the belief in reptilian alien queens n s***, i cant buy into what the elitist, 1% of the population, rich kids are polluting the airwaves with. Make a medical breakthrough, cure a f****** disease, discover a new mathematical concept that could turn the current financial system upside down in a globally beneficial way. Your spiritual connectedness to the rest of us and the universe is simply your spirituality showing. Deep thought? Sure. Do you deserve news exposure and your work published in a science journal? F*** NO. You are simply reading into what people have been talking about for centuries. If we arent ready to consider ayurvedic yoga and all that s*** true science then these two need to be told stfu n take a few seats quick.

  6. Oh, So we doing this today!? November 17, 2014

    I love willow!!! she waaaaaaaaay more talented then rih & bey combined.

    • Miley Mania November 17, 2014

      I can’t with DELUSIONAL b****** like you.

      • Oh, So we doing this today!? November 17, 2014

        You can stay pressed biiiiiitch! now get out of my replies f.a.g

  7. Molly November 17, 2014

    Will,Jada,Williow and the other non factor are all jokes.

    • Oh, So we doing this today!? November 17, 2014

      the biggest joke was when ciara got her ring token back kii 🙂

  8. Special Delivery November 17, 2014

    These kids are a mess. Will and Jada gave them a bit too much freedom IMHO. They should’ve been reigned in from when Willow wanted to shave her head at 10.

  9. Yea ok November 17, 2014

    I’m laughing at these comments. Willow and Jaden are reading books about quantum physics while everyone on here probably only reads TGJ and gossips about celebrities. You lose. They win. This is a perfect example of how society conditions everyone to all think the same and the minute people say stuff different from what you deem to be normal it’s written off as crazy talk when in fact they are ahead of their time and very bright. You all could learn a thing or two. It certainly won’t be from sitting on this blog all day arguing back and forth about who sold more albums. All of whom have sold more than you. Good day.

    • Wordup November 17, 2014

      Thank you!

      • Indie November 18, 2014

        Amen!

    • I love to get ‘2 On’ November 18, 2014

      Word!!!

    • ElohimLuvhim November 18, 2014

      I totally agree, they are very smart and aware kids if the majority of the people who are making negative comments took the time to research what they are saying and have an open mind about which what they’re saying is indeed true especially about time, and research about the flower of life and Osho. Even before I read this article Ive research about Osho and The Flower Of Life. Osho is a form of mediation and breathing.

  10. Wordup November 17, 2014

    And they sound crazy because? Only simpletons wont understand where they are coming from smh. And they are looked at like their crazy smh

  11. Special Delivery November 17, 2014

    It’s not about them being smart. It’s the fact they are too damn over the top for their age, watch them be crazy adults on drugs and s*** because they think they are too smart for this world.

    • Yea ok November 17, 2014

      They never said they were too smart for this world they were asked questions and they gave answers. Feelig a bit inferior ? Do something about it. Go pick up a book instead of trying to tear them down for wanting to explore and expand their mind.

      • Special Delivery November 17, 2014

        @Yea Ok They don’t have to say it, the proof is in the pudding. It’s a combination of things with these kids, Let’s not forget Will and Jada already had the authorities called in. What kind of 13 year sits and is comfortable next a 21 year old topless male. Do you think that’s ok? These kids are delusional. They are show offs and pretentious. And these types of celebrities are the ones who end up having nervous breakdowns and going off the rails. I can bet you these kids are already smoking and drinking. Why is 16 year old hanging with a 21 year old? Please open your damn eyes. You can be mature, but these kids are TOO MUCH.

  12. queenonika November 17, 2014

    You all talking s*** have to be kids. That was the smartest f****** interterview by any celebrity. Have y’all b****** can’t even red cat and the hat. I’m very impressed by how AWARE and mentally developed these kids are. I’m sure have of you are black hood rats who didn’t do well in school or still in highschool. Get a fuckong life you bums.

  13. queenonika November 17, 2014

    Half* *read
    Don’t mind my very expensive not. Fingers to fat like queen onikas booty

  14. xedos November 17, 2014

    they’re not speaking hood s*** and Ebonics so i guess nigas are going to call them stupid

  15. Moh November 17, 2014

    Guess what?? THEY’RE CORRECT. This is only a big deal to all you asleep people.

  16. queenonika November 17, 2014

    Pink print in stores December 15 2014.. Glue your wigs on tight. Or ya edges will be ripped apart.

  17. Stephy Tha Lambily November 17, 2014

    Ass Whooping’s Needed tbh…

  18. JM November 18, 2014

    i cant stop laughing at those pics, they look a hot ass mess Lmao

  19. colouredgirl November 18, 2014

    Fake ass interview…all crammed…let’s see how all of this works out in times to come…celebrities would do anything for attention..they got all the attention they want,people talkin and arguing over them….*smart move*

    • cc January 15, 2015

      Thank you. Judging by what i read, these two gave a vague description of some b******* they probably learned in a home SCHOOL along with little suri and a bunch of other celebs kids. There reality is incredibly detached from ours because they are BORN rich. Idk if it equates to jealousy but i know plenty of freethinkers whom nobody cares about because they have to work for a living. Not think deeply, meditate and learn/read constantly. Its just as annoying when blacks throw their privilege in the world’s face as it is when whites do it. Thats where all the hate is coming from i think.

      • cc January 15, 2015

        Had been anybody else spouting the same b******* the reaction would have been the same. Its just a bunch of fake s***. Like they talk about what they are going to say beforehand. I wouldnt be surprised if the interview itself was a setup by will himself
        Like kids their age, their broke, average ass fans especially really give a s*** about what books they are reading. Its almost like they actively TRY not to relate to kids their age. They actively try to be better than everyone else. Disturbing to say in the least.

  20. Jay November 18, 2014

    ……….Ummm, ok. The only thing that made sense to me was the take on education & schooling. Other than that, I…..just….I don’t even know what they’re on. I mean, I’m not bashing them for being so into the realm of life & they’re purpose of life, but they’re really doing the most. Like, be smart…but don’t be…that. That…that’s too much. Quantum Physics? K.

    • I love to get ‘2 On’ November 18, 2014

      No one gives a f***..

  21. Brav0!! November 18, 2014

    Will & jaden smith are from stupid, either their father. I understand both of them.

  22. Absolved November 18, 2014

    They’re odd. Every time I see them they’re looking weird or saying something abstract. When Will and Jada were young, they were both cool, hip ’round the way folks. You would think that they would raise cool kids, but instead their kids are all ‘off’ and come off like bad cliches of what a entitled, Hollywood, hipster millennial babies.

    • cc January 15, 2015

      The s*** they are talking about exists in our world too. Its called pseudo-science and spirituality.They can’t tell me what living in philly was like for Will before he got famous nor what SKILLS he had to apply to make it as big as he did.Without any real life experience around real people not other spoiled little rich kids, you dont get the right to speak or philosophize on what life is or how it should be. Your perception of reality is already skewed. The BIGGEST part left out of the rich kid education is the reality of EVERYONE they are constantly over exposing themselves to, trying to sell their “art” and “profound thinking” to.They dont understand that for non-entertainment industry great thinkers, rappers,writers, philosophers REAL life is dealt with on a daily(bills ne one?) WHILE they pursue their art. Nobody gives you jobs because of who your daddy is. It simply comes down to privilege and jealousy.

  23. sashay November 18, 2014

    Although Will and Jada never confirmed it I guess they really are Scientologists. People who are part of that church tend to believe that there are more evolved than everyone else.

  24. cruz November 18, 2014

    The F***???

    I don’t like talking s*** about children so I will refrain 🙂

  25. XX November 19, 2014

    There are too many ignorant people on this site, for this post.It’s clear they were raised not to buy into the b******* society feeds.

  26. jazz November 19, 2014

    Of course these two have a privileged upbringing which isn’t our lives to judge. They was born into their situation so why show such hatered because of someone else’s life? Is envy just part of humanity now? These two children are the future (indigo children.) They are educating them selves to a much higher level then any national curriculum. When did we forget about freedom and become obedient to the dictation of the goverment as to what our children should learn? Mr and mrs smith in my opinion allowing their children to develop their brains without limitation and actually be intune with the truth of this world. Not dogma which most are comfortable in or dont realize they are participating in. Instead of attacking what u dont try to understand? Is it because ur scared of ur own power? go and read what these two mentioned and learn something valuable.

  27. Malee November 19, 2014

    Good thing they have rich parents. Example of what education deficiency sounds like.
