Jaden Smith walks to the beat of his own drum, and sometimes, he confuses those in his path along the way to walking in his truth.
The 20-year-old Icon rapper and famous son of Will and Jada Smith,opened up to Huffington Post about the questionable tweets that have left many criticizing Smith’s brand of an alternate reality and wondering if it’s a real thing or just a way to stir up controversy.
Smith said the criticism he’s received has become a “big thing” for him and caused him to hold back a bit about expressing his unique thoughts on his social media platform.
“Every once in a while I might go crazy on Twitter and say some crazy stuff, but that has changed my relationship with Twitter and social media.”
Recently Smith tweeted out a tweet that confused many on social media when he proclaimed:
“I Am Not A Human And I Don’t Speak English,” Smith tweeted.
I Am Not A Human And I Don’t Speak English
— Jaden Smith (@officialjaden) May 30, 2018
But Jaden is a provocateur who pushes the envelope as seen when he took the lead in a Louis Vuitton women’s clothing campaign and rocked a skirt in an ad and walked in his own truth as a trendsetter.
Smith explains: “Because I’m not gonna be categorized as a human. Oh, humans are supposed to do this or act like this or people are supposed to act like this or people are supposed to be this. I’m my own thing.”
We can clearly see that while some of these tweets are head scratchers, Smith just wants his point of view to get noticed.
To each his own!
