This Jaden and Willow Smith interview is my favourite thing right now → 

Posted on 18 November 2014

Will Smith has given us so much. From classic rap hits to ironically classic rap hits to a well-aged sitcom to blockbuster movies. And now, his greatest gift of all: his children. An interview with Jaden and Willow Smith (aged 16 and 14) in the New York Times magazine is making the rounds, full of classic exchanges like this one:

“JADEN: Kids who go to normal school are so teenagery, so angsty.

“WILLOW: They never want to do anything, they’re so tired.

“JADEN: 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.”

As someone who’ve been following both Jaden and Willow on Twitter for a while, nothing about this comes as a shock. The surrealness on display here is either 100% authentic or one of the greatest performance art pieces of all time. Either way, they are currently my favourite teenage celebrities.
