Jaden Smith, 17, and his younger but equally-as-cool sister Willow, 14, say they "100 percent" consider themselves misfits and they're totally cool with that.
Although their parents Will and Jada Smith are famous, the two have become pop-culture icons in their own right. Recently, the pair was in Dubai to promote their fashion line MSFTS and perform a concert for Dubai Summer Surprises. Gulf News Tabloid caught up with Willow and Jaden in an interview that can only be described as mind-blowingly awesome.
Willow and Jaden say they enjoy defying social convention, especially in challenging gender norms in the clothes they design.
"I don't want to wear this because I'm a boy," Willow said, impersonating small-minded opinions about gender roles, "Or [because] I'm a girl, so I have to act this type of way."
Rightly, the teens are skeptical about the rigid boxes that society places around men and women. "Nobody ever thinks, 'Yo who made all these rules?" Jaden explained. "Who was here and made all these rules? Because, I'm equally as smart as them, and I don't necessarily agree with all the rules that they established before I came into the picture."
"You decide your own path and you decide your own rules and that's what MSFTS is all about," Jaden said.
