Jaden and Willow Smith, the children of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, have a big task in following their parent's footsteps, but the two siblings, who seem very self-assured, are proving to be quite the entertaining duo.
Jaden and Willow covered a range of bizarre topics in a recent interview
Jaden and Willow, who both sing and act, recently took part in a joint interview with New York Times, covering an array of bizarre topics, including only liking their own music, ordinary school and practising meditation.
"We're just trying to make music that we think is cool," Jaden, 16, told the newspaper about his album Cool Tapes Vol. 2. "We don't think a lot of the music out there is that cool. So we make our own music. We don't have any song that we like to listen to on the Pacific Coast Highway by any other artist, you know?"
Willow, 14, who burst onto the music scene with the track 'Whip My Hair' in 2010, added: "That's what I do with novels. There're no novels that I like to read so I write my own novels, and then I read them again, and it's the best thing."
As well as being entertainers, the pair are also apparently very education as they are currently studying "Quantum physics and ancient texts." Jaden added, "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.Kids who go to normal school are so teenagery, so angst.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 chimed.
The youngest sibling, who attended "normal" school for only a year, also said, "it was the best experience but the worst experience [because] I was, like, 'Oh, now I know why kids are so depressed.'"
Will and Jada's children seem to be quite the entertaining duo when together
The interview becomes even more peculiar when Willow began explaining her interest in "prana energy." She said, "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."
So what does the future hold for the energetic brother and sister? "I have a goal to be just the most craziest person of all time," Jaden said. "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."
