Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s children did an interview with the New York Times that leaves everyone scratching their heads.
Willow, 14, and Jaden, 16, sat down with T Magazine to discuss Prana energy (meditation), school being overrated, and how Willow claims to have the ability to control time. Alrighty then…
Jaden and Wilow reveal in the interview that Willow is currently reading ‘quantum physics’ while Jaden reveals he is checking out “The Ancient Secret of the Flower Life [that] can’t be pre-dated”.
The interviewer then asks the pair what themes ‘recur’ in their music. Jaden said, “the melancholiness of the ocean; the melancholiness of everything else” and Willow says the “feeling of being in a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made. I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please. That’s how I know it doesn’t exist.”
The nutty kids also spoke about public school, with Willow stating, “‘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”.
Jaden took aim at Driver’s Ed, claiming all the car wrecks that occur prove school isn’t working.
Jaden, who previously said kids should drop out of school, attempts to explain, “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.”
Jaden adds, “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.”
Willow, 14, said she misses her days as a newborn. The “Whip My Hair” singer said, “When they’re in the stomach, [babies are] so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they’re shocked by this harsh world … As they grow up, they start losing.”
The subject turned to honesty and Willow said she has started “caring less and less about what your own mind thinks” to keep her from feeling sad.
Jaden agrees with his sister, adding, “Exactly. Because your mind has a duality to it. So when one thought goes into your mind, it’s not just one thought, it has to bounce off both hemispheres of the brain.'”
So what’s next for these crazy kids?
Jaden said, “I’ve a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time. (well, he is obviously off to a great start). 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”.
His little sister Willow said, “I think by the time we’re 30 or 20, we’re going to be climbing as many mountains as we can possibly climb”.
This interview is either way too deep for us…or these kids are nutjobs!
