Jaden Smith is a 14-year-old child star equipped with a molester mustache and a Jenner (NOT Kardashian, thankyouverymuch) girlfriend, so we can’t expect much sense to come out of his mouth. If you keep your expectations reasonably low, then his new interview with Wonderland won’t let you down. You see, Jaden’s worn his DVD of Men In Black out and has convinced himself that aliens are real – and that Obama is in on the cover up.
“I like aliens!” he says. “I think aliens are really cool, because they exist.” He’s got proof. On a trip to the White House with his dad (Men In Black superstar) Will, mother Jada and sister Willow, he found himself in the President’s Situation Room.
“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.”
Uh, okay. Jaden also blew a load of hot air up his own ass by talking about his upcoming mixtape which will apparently change hip hop, and of course his fashion line, which he’s sure is going to revolutionise the fashion world and comfort misfits – which he is, according to… himself – around the world.
Before saving the world, he’s got a spring line to launch. MSFtS (pronounced Misfits) is the label Jaden set up with Moises and Mateo Arias, with the designs inspired by their skating.
“It’s kind of just black on black. We all really like black, so almost everything in the line is black. Some would call it street goth. I would say it’s a fashion-forward street brand.
“I want it to be as big as possible, an all over the world thing. Because everybody can be a misfit. It’s not just a clique. People ask me if they can be misfits all the time. But everybody is a misfit.” Why’s everybody a misfit? I ask.
“I mean, they’re a misfit because they’re different. You’d have to ask them.” Do you ever feel like a misfit?
There’s a long silence.
“Every. Single. Second of my existence,” he sighs.
In what ways are you a misfit? “I’m always not following the rules, breaking stuff, running all over the place, trying to kickflip, like, just crazy things. You’d have to hang out with me for a day to see.”
Oh man, someone shut this kid up. I guess I can’t expect much else from Justin Bieber‘s best friend (why is a 19-year-old hanging out with a 14-year-old?) but he needs to step off his high horse, and quickly.
