The Smith’s have done it again, and this time with their first ever joint magazine cover for Interview magazine. Sitting down for a Q & A with family friend, Pharrell Williams, the siblings let loose and give us a taste of their opinions.
The two young teens open up and say how they feel misunderstood by judgmental adults. Willow, 15 says “It seems like they don’t understand our thought process. Or, like, things have happened in the past that they’re still mad about.”
The siblings also talk about how their parents play a big role in their lives. Jaden mentions “My parents are definitely my biggest role models. And that’s where me and Willow both pull all of our inspiration from to change the world.”
“Growing up, all I saw was my parents trying to be the best people they could be, and people coming to them for wisdom, coming to them for guidance, and them not putting themselves on a pedestal, but literally being face-to-face with these people and saying, ‘I’m no better than you, but the fact that you’re coming to me to reach some sort of enlightenment or to shine a light on something, that makes me feel love and gratitude for you’… What my parents have given to me is not anything that has to do with money or success or anything that society says people should be focusing on – it’s something spiritual that only certain people can grasp and accept,” Willow adds.
