…”and is completely, obnoxiously insufferable.”

Just kidding! I added that last part but the headline of this post is a real freaking quote. I try to remember that Willow Smith is 15 and still like, A FIFTEEN YEAR OLD, but it’s so hard as it feels like she’s a more fashion forward, mini-Gwyneth Paltrow in the making. Anyway, Willow covers the new issue of Teen Vogue and she’s, like, into hosting “underground teachings in quantum mechanics” and other like, totally normal teen stuff. Check it:

Her relationship with her brother Jaden: “We’re like binary stars, like two parts of one thing. I know what he’s thinking at all times. And he knows what I’m thinking. We’re not identical twins, but it feels like that in a lot of ways.”

This really part of the interview: “The teen supernova perks up on topics like nanoscience, civil engineering, and microbiology. She is a self-proclaimed STEM freak, with her sights set squarely on deepening connections in the science community and maybe even attending the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) one day… Willow sews clothing, hosts underground teachings in quantum mechanics, and is studying how to produce songs from mathematical equations…”

She visited MIT: “It was nice to be able to talk to female students and professors about science and logic because that’s just such a man’s world.”

She is an artisan: “I see myself as a—hold on, let me ask Siri.” The teenager whips out her iPhone and speaks into it, drawing stares from tables nearby. “Siri, define artisan.” Everybody’s favorite robotic voice serves up a satisfying definition: Artisan is a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand. “Ah, OK, yes!” Willow allows. “I call myself an artisan.”

When she felt less than empowered: “After ‘Whip My Hair’ and all the publicity, after going on tour in the U.K., after saying no to the Annie film, all of this crap was going on in my life, and I had to sit down and say, ‘Who are you? On a real note. Are you this or this?’ During that time of figuring it out, I was lost and super insecure. But then I stopped trying to find myself in these other inanimate objects, people, and ideas. I realized it isn’t about finding yourself—it’s about creating yourself.”

Her new role as a Chanel ambassador: “Being a young African-American woman with dreads, it blows my mind that I’m a Chanel ambassador. Like, how am I a Chanel ambassador? It is so beautiful. I’m coming into a new part of my life that is completely unknown, and I’m jumping right in. All I can do from here is continue to shift paradigms and continue to push the envelope further and further. But I am doing it every day just by being myself.”

Although I have to say, after rereading this is IS cool how much she likes Jaden Smith and how passionately into so much stuff she is. I just wish she had ANY link to reality- like, volunteerism, a poor friend, whatever. I think that would make her so much (and ACTUALLY) worldly.
