Jaden and Willow Smith were interviewed by The New York Times where they waxed philosophy about the meaning of life. Or something. They just sounded like teenagers who thought they know everything because well, they’re teenagers who think they know everything. A snippet of the interview:

So is the hardest education the unlearning of things?

WILLOW: Yes, basically, but the crazy thing is it doesn’t have to be like that.

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.

WILLOW: Forever, ‘til the day that we’re in our bed.

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.

    They need to keep their asses in school.

    Others have caught on that their responses are based on Scientology teachings…I’m no expert, but something doesn’t sit well with me

    When you think of what Malala had to go through–an attempt on her very life– just to have her right to an education honoured and of those nearly 300 girls in Nigeria who had their right to an education wrenched out of their hands, so they could be forcefully converted and sold off to dirty old men (I know Malala has been over there and is currently campaigning for them but I don’t think anyone there cares how many Nobel Peace Prizes she has) it’s baffling that these kids can not only be so dismissive, but downright contemptuous of education. Yo, Will and Jada, here’s some math: what’s dumb + ass? I was going to say that I’m not surprised that Will would be alright with this, since, though he was extremely successful academically (I don’t know about her), he has a real, ‘Screw you, I got mine *kicks ladder*’ attitude. But then, he’s purchased the lives of his two younger kids for them, so, it seems that he regards giving the slightest bit of encouragement to someone with whom he doesn’t share a surname to be a most brazen act of cronyism, but nepotism is fine. I don’t know what they’re thinking.
