The Smith family has done a pretty stellar job at raising not one, but two of the future generation’s “it” stars.
Between Willow’s hair whipping style and Jaden Smith’s triple threat abilities, it’s hard to think about a family with a 14-year-old cooler than Jaden Smith.
The rapper, actor, designer and all around cool kid sat down for a brief interview with Wonderland Magazine.
In the interview, Jaden covered just about everything everyone wants to know about him. Before skating off on his board, Jaden opened up about his rumored relationship with Kylie Jenner, about the controversy surrounding Justin Bieber’s birthday (that cited his inability to enter the club as the reason for Bieber’s leaving prematurely) and of course, he talks about the time he engaged in a casual chat about the existence of aliens with President Barack Obama.
Check out the excerpts from the interview below.
On his relationship with Kylie:
“I was in LA, we were all hanging out. Then I went to New York and she came too, then she came here and surprised me, so that’s pretty baller. She’s one of my best friends. It’s pretty awesome.”
On his thoughts about aliens:
“I like aliens. I think aliens are really cool, because they exist. I talked to President Obama about extraterrestrials. He said he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of aliens, which means they’re real. If people think we’re the only people that live in this universe, then something is wrong with them.”
On the infamous night of Bieber’s birthday:
“I went to his hotel. I gave him his Cartier. And then I went to see Kanye West perform,” he says. “I got him the Love Bangle, not the watch. It cut him, but yeah, he thought it was cool.”
On his music career:
“I try to go for the trippy vocals, the trippy sounds, because that’s what really makes a production, you know what I mean? I was going for that kind of lo-fi sound, so I could show people that I don’t need big budgets and it’s serious- we’re rapping and it’s not a game. The movement, and everything, it’s actually real. We’re serious about it.”
On understanding his father’s fame:
“I saw his first movie when I was one,” he says. “I mean, I went to premieres before I could talk. I’m really happy and fortunate, and thankful that I can get brought up in a family as lucky as mine.”
