Jaden and Willow Smith sat down for an interview with The New York Times' T Magazine this week, and the pseudo-intellectual babble flowed faster than ever from the mouths of two nice kids clearly pushed into the entertainment industry far too early.
The siblings get straight down to business.
Bizarre things Jaden Smith says
Bizarre things Jaden Smith says
1/7 On justice
How does anybody get justice?
2/7 On magazines
Anything you see in any magazine ever is fake
3/7 On Jupiter
If a cupcake falls from a tree how far away will it be from down?
4/7 On truth
The moment that truth is organized it becomes a lie
5/7 On drinking water
I've been drinking distilled water for do long that when I drink normal water it feels like I'm swallowing huge chunks of aluminum

You can discover everything you need to know about everything by looking at your hands

No one belived Galileo either
On what they've been reading recently…
Willow: "Quantum Physics. Osho."
Jaden: "The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” and ancient texts; things that can’t be pre-dated."
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."

On the themes in their music:
Jaden: "The P.C.H. [Pacific Coast Highway] being one of them; the melancholiness of the ocean; the melancholiness of everything else."
Willow: "And the feeling of being like, this is a fragment of a holographic reality that a higher consciousness made."
On their favourite books:
Willow: "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."
Jaden: "Willow just dropped a song, let me quote the lyrics: “I do not care what people say.” We both don’t really care. I like to wear things that I make, but I throw it on as though I was throwing on anything. It looks cool, sometimes."

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."
Look Around, You Will See— Jaden Smith (@officialjaden) August 12, 2014
On the future:
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."
On...I'm not sure exactly...
Jaden: "When you think about an apple, you also think about the opposite of an apple. It’s a tool for understanding mathematics and things with two separate realities. But for creativity: That comes from a place of oneness. That’s not a duality consciousness."Reuse content
