Will Smith‘s kids are super weird, so it’s no surprise that the apples may not fall far from the tree and they may actually get it from their father. Will shared on his Instagram page that he was headed to Burning Man, and once he got there, someone posted a video of what appears to be him and a mini entourage doing a choreographed dance (?) on Segways. I don’t know, either:
I don’t really “get” Burning Man or Will Smith, so this whole thing is just completely over my head, and I think I prefer it that way.
Look, I get that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are supposed to be the “cool parents” – like Amy Poehler in Mean Girls – when it comes to raising Jaden and Willow Smith, but something’s gotta give, here. These kids are fucking WEIRD, way too grown for their own good and will either need serious counseling to become functional adults or they’ll just go off the rails and live in some wilderness commune as they wait for Xenu to come back and rescue them on his spaceship.
The latest from the Smith camp is that apparently Willow and Jaden are “obsessed” with snakes, to the point that they sleep with them every single night.
“Willow is obsessed with snakes,” a source tells Us Weekly, adding that Jaden, 15, “cuddles” with them in bed.
“She has 10 sleeping in her room,” the source adds of the 13-year-old, “and some aren’t in cages!” She isn’t the only Smith family member who adores the serpents. Her brother Jaden refers to his sister’s pets as his “girlfriends,” the insider tells Us. “They slither into his bed and curl up with him!”
Apparently the snake love has become a family affair, as even Jada told Redbook:
“I’ve always loved snakes but was afraid of them,” she told Redbook magazine. “But Willow had wanted this one snake forever. She’d go into the pet store and pick it up and wrap it around her. I’d never touched a snake before, and I put out my hand, and Beauty [mimics the snake slithering up her arm]. I’ve been in love with her ever since. I said to Willow, ‘You did Mommy a big favor. You helped me overcome a fear.’”
Willow Smith is only 13 years old, but it seems like young madam is growing up a bit before her time. Because parents Will & Jada Pinkett Smith are “cool” Mom & Dad, there don’t seem to be many rules in place when it comes to what she can and can’t do, which is why the above photo – which shows Willow in bed with 20-year-old Hannah Montana star Moises Arias, is really no big deal to them. I wasn’t even allowed to have a boy set foot inside my bedroom at 13 (though my mother was certainly misguided in her worries, lolz), so this seems extra insane to me.
Sources connected to the Smith family tell TMZ … Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is “very mature” … enough so to make her own decisions, as long as they don’t clearly cross the line.
The Smiths have known Moises for years, and he’s best friends with 15-year-old Jaden.
Bottom line … Will and Jada have NO issue with the pic.
Newsflash: no matter how “mature” your 13-year-old daughter is, she’s a child, not an adult, and she is not capable of making fully rational and intelligent decisions about what she does and does not do sexually. I mean, seriously? Sure, maybe this dude is just a “family friend” and this is totally harmless, but it all just seems inappropriate as hell to me. Kids are too damn grown.
Margot Robbie, despite being in some very inappropriate photos with co-star Will Smith, calls rumors/speculation of an affair, “ridiculous.” Really, Ms. Robbie? It’s ridiculous to think that something’s going on considering y’all are pretty cozy and you’re lifting up your shirt with a dude who’s married? Of those photos (above) she tweeted,
Been working non-stop, just catching my breath. There’s absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag…
…It’s disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context.
Y’all can’t be that dumb/naive. You knew exactly what would happen.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith may be divorcing. That is, if you believe it means anything to stop wearing your wedding band in public. According to Popstop TV, Jada was spotted at the Make Equality Reality without her ring (and with a new haircut!)
Apparently, Will Smith was rumoured to be in talks to appear in an Independence Day sequel, then it was claimed he wasn’t going to be part of the project and now apparently he is again. Whew. According to Roland Emmerich, they’re currently “in discussions”, which is probably code for “trying to satisfy Will Smith’s insane salary demands and seeing if we have a bit role to give Jaden“.
I’m not an Independence Day fan – don’t think I’ve ever even watched the full movie. Still, I’m sure this would be great news for “fans” of the original (they exist, right?) and it could potentially make some serious box office money. They’d have to kick it up a few notches as technology has become a fair bit more advanced since 1996. (It made $800 million back then!) The sequel will apparently be out in “2015 or 2016″, with or without Will Smith.
What do you think? Is this something you would see? Has the ship sailed for Independence Day?
