Willow Smith Had Intense Day of Thinking ‘About the World and Everything’
Jaden and Willow Smith are not your average teenagers.
Not only did they grow up insanely rich and famous, but they were also raised to be the kind of teenagers who have “intense mornings” because they were “just thinking about the world and everything.”
This is the mindset that Pharrell Williams found the two teenagers in when he sat down to talk to them for Interview Magazine.
Starting off with a simple, “So what’s up, guys? What’s on your mind Willow?” things went from zero to existential af rurl quick.
“This morning actually was pretty intense because I was thinking about the world and my place in the world, things that I have made or want to make,” Willow philosophized. “I was thinking about all the things that I could do that I don’t do. But, you know, I was just thinking about the world and everything.
Later Willow also told the story of what happened when out of the blue a fan stopped her on the street and asked, “Is this real life?”
“A fan came up to me in New York a couple days ago,” Willow began, “and they’re like, ‘Is this real life?’ And I looked at them, and I go, ‘I don’t think it is.’ It was a crazy moment because I actually, like, looked into her eyes and thought, ‘She’s actually asking me this question. Like, she’s not BS’ing me. This isn’t a joke. She’s actually asking me, ‘Is this real life?’ And I’m giving her my truest answer, which is, ‘I don’t think it is.'”
As much as it’s a fool’s errand to try and tell any teenager to take themselves and the world around them less seriously, Willow could probably chill.
There’s plenty of time to get bummed out after thinking about the world and everything when you’re older, Willow. I promise.
Try and have some fun being 15, kay?
