Willow Smith Hosts “Underground Teachings In Quantum Mechanics”


…”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.

A Bunch Of Goth Teens On The Cover of W


“more dark lipstick STAT!”

Willow Smith, Zendaya and Kiernan Shipka were all featured on the April issue of W Magazine, where they are billed as “dream teens” who are next in line to transform the worlds of style, design, art and fashion. Kind of a lofty prediction, seeing as the interview is still asking them who their “Celeb crushes” are, but whatever.

Now personally I find Willow Smith intolerable so I’ll let y’all just peruse some of the pretty photos of the three of them, and be envious of their clothes. Seriously, it’s a better use of your time.

Can We All Relax About Willow Smith’s NOT Topless Instagram Photo?

Screen Shot 2015-01-23 at 8.41.32 AM

See? Willow Smith is wearing a shirt. Can we all just calm down already?

The 14-year-old posted an Instagram yesterday of herself in this fairly ugly Jean Paul Gaultier vintage shirt, in which there ARE nipples, but they aren’t little Willow’s.

I’m not sure why everyone is freaking out- it’s not her chest, it’s just a shirt with a picture of where someone’s chest should be.  I think this is super overblown and feel like we’re already giving little Willow way too much attention than she deserves.  After all, she did put out the MADDENING single, “Whip My Hair.”

Do you think this pic is controversial? Tell us why or why not!

Jaden & Willow Smith Talk About Manipulating Time

Jaden & Willow Smith Talk About Manipulating Time

I’m not exactly sure what is going on with Jaden and Willow Smith. They aren’t taking part in any structured school setting and yet because they have a platform, people are listening to their gibberish. Uneducated gibberish, but gibberish just the same. I don’t even know what to make of their most recent interview with T-Magazine, so here are some snippets for your dissection.

WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.
JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.
WILLOW: Because living.

When asked how they have gotten better, here’s their responses:

WILLOW: Caring less what everybody else thinks, but also caring less and less about what your own mind thinks, because what your own mind thinks, sometimes, is the thing that makes you sad.

JADEN: Exactly. Because your mind has a duality to it. So when one thought goes into your mind, it’s not just one thought, it has to bounce off both hemispheres of the brain. When you’re thinking about something happy, you’re thinking about something sad. When you think about an apple, you also think about the opposite of an apple. It’s a tool for understanding mathematics and things with two separate realities. But for creativity: That comes from a place of oneness. That’s not a duality consciousness. And you can’t listen to your mind in those times — it’ll tell you what you think and also what other people think.

WILLOW: And then you think about what you think, which is very dangerous.

I really don’t have any words for this, but if you are interested, you can check out the full interview here.
