People have been enjoying the top photo of the Smith Family candidly reacting to Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s VMA performance last night, but come on, everybody. They also posed for the second picture. And the other two. They have no right to side-eye anyone.
I am so ready for the After Earth press tour to be over, so I can stop seeing and hearing about the Smiths for a while. I’ve never seen his movies (obviously), but considering Jaden Smith only knows this one facial expression, I can’t imagine he’s a very good actor.
Jaden Smith is turning fifteen in July, and he may be getting the one present I’ve been lobbying for for years: legal emancipation.
“He says, ‘Dad, I want to be emancipated.’ I know if we do this, he can be an emancipated minor, because he really wants to have his own place, like ooh.”
Look, I’d want Jaden Smith out of my house, too, but let’s be honest. Samuel Affleck, age 1, would be a more responsible emancipated minor than Jaden Smith. The Smith kids loose in society is honestly my worst nightmare, and I thought I had three more years before that became a reality.
It’s pretty clear, though, that Will Smith operates outside of reality. In that same interview, he calls himself “the biggest movie star in the world.” Okay, then. If you say so.
The family that goes clubbing in South Beach together stays together. Or something like that.
I stopped trying to understand the Pinkett-Smiths a long time ago.
Here is a story about Jaden Smith, as told by Will Smith, about a visit to the White House Situation Room:
“Barack is talking about the Situation Room, and Jaden says, ‘Excuse me, Mr. President?’ And Barack said, ‘Don’t tell me,’ and in perfect form—like, this is why he’s the President—he stopped and looked at Jaden and said, ‘The aliens, right?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, shoot!’ And he said, ‘I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of extraterrestrials, but I can tell you if there had been a top secret meeting and if there would have had to have been a discussion about it, it would have taken place in this room.’”
What is wrong with this family thinking they are on a first-name basis with everyone? First Willow calls Madame Oprah Winfrey “Girl” and now you’re telling me you called the President Barack? Are you being a serious person right now?
I’m all for a good story about a precocious tween, but these Smith kids have to be stopped. Do you think Kiernan Shipka or I would have introduced such banality into a conversation with the leader of the free world? Of course not. All I would want to discuss with the President is equal pay for equal work, and the ridiculously high tariffs on French cheeses.
