Jaden Smith was once a promising actor but something happened on his rise to fame to cause him to disappear from the spotlight while children of Hollywood stars often find it difficult to step out of the shadows cast by their famous folks Jaden has been doing everything in his power to create his very own shadow since the moment he was old enough to perform but as Jaden grew from a young boy to a young man his relationship with Hollywood began to sour the early box-office promise he’d shown all but vanished and the actor / rapper / philosopher has been distancing himself from Hollywood ever since I miss my dreads right but they’re still on like spiritually they’re there and spiritually I can hide behind that but you just can’t see them after Earth aftermath even if you’ve never seen 2013 after Earth chances are you’ve heard of it the disastrous sci-fi blockbuster starring Will and Jaden Smith as father and son cost 130 million dollars to make but only returns 60 million dollars domestically and landed an embarrassing 11% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.
what did you want me Joe will told Esquire that was the most painful failure in my career my son was involved in after earth and I led him into it that was excruciating Jaden even won worst actor at the Razzies the following year ad reputation in 2014 the hacker group guardians of peace stole a bunch of sensitive information from Sony Pictures and among the hackers hall were private emails between executives most of the headlines were about Big Time stars but Will Smith’s kids also came up in conversation according to Us Weekly Tristar executive Tom Rothman emailed former Sony head Amy Pascal a link to an interview that the Smith kids did with T magazine writing one read this – they are homeschooled don’t let this family date your movies in the team AG interview – even theorized 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 the youngster then went on to claim he could manipulate time saying it’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe it’s relative to beings in 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 the then 16 year-old Jaden gave a number of unconventional interviews over the next few years each one as baffling as the last my whole life revolves around educating.
myself and just learning more and educating the people around me so that we can all be happier in 2015 he told GQ that he had built his own pyramid from scratch saying the tip is missing but the whole structural thing is built and it sits at 12.5 feet tall I’ll Instagram a picture of it once this comes out so people know what I’m talking about the following year Jaden told Pharrell Williams that nothing is real during their chat for Interview magazine the ones who know know but the ones who don’t know just don’t believe science over cinema after the crushing disappointment of after earth Jaden’s movie career seemed to be over before it had really even begun it would be three years before he acted again and during his time away Jaden and his sister became more interested in the pursuit of scientific knowledge than they were in making movies he told GQ that he and his sibling had started their own mystery school saying Plato Pythagoras all these students had mystery schools and what they learned in there was secret like you couldn’t say the word dodecahedron outside of one of the mystery schools or they would like kill you or whatever because it was such a sacred shape the celeb even compared himself to scientific pioneer Galileo saying people think you’re crazy.
I feel like it’s an honor actually for people to think I’m crazy because they thought Galileo was crazy too I don’t think I’m as revolutionary as Galileo but I don’t think I’m not as revolutionary as Galileo strawberries aren’t berries but bananas are and so are watermelons and avocados under critical review Jaden once referred to himself as quote the future of music photography and filmmaking acclaim that angered a number of journalists in these fields for the New York Post Kyle Smith wrote of the star Jaden’s primary activity these days seems to be trying to be the black boy George – the talent it wasn’t the first time a journalist had suggested that Jaden was all talk and no talent The New Yorker wrote of his performance and after Earth jadynn though agile and skillful isn’t a care maduk actor he doesn’t put a lot of personality into the part and he doesn’t have a deft way with the dialogue Cinemax tape was similarly critical of the young stars performance predicting Jaden would do well to bottle some of his dad’s charisma for his next go-round if he wants a career in film he’ll need to do better than this no support in LA after failing his driving test in 2017 jaden took to Instagram to share his disappointment with fans but his thoughts quickly turned from driving to life in Hollywood a few months later jaden moved out of his parents quote compound and into a four million dollar estate in the quiet gated community of Hidden Hills California which reportedly stopped being so quiet after his arrival one resident told Daily Mail this was a quiet neighborhood but Jaden and his entourage are turning it into their own personal Kingdom he has a sense of entitlement he doesn’t care if security reprimands him or gives him a warning he just continues to do whatever he pleases Netflix and fail not long after he moved into his four million-dollar pad Jayden received word that Netflix was pulling the plug on the get-down after just 11 episodes he played graffiti artist Marcus desi Kipling on the show which was created by Baz Luhrmann at the eye watering cost of 190 million dollars but luckily for Jayden he had another project lined up with Netflix an anime trainwreck while some of Netflix’s original anime series have been getting rave reviews others haven’t been received quite as warmly knock-knock it’s me Kaz I brought you a big Toblerone created by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig 2017 s neo yoki o star stayed in as a vain majestic rat who spends his days socializing and his nights hunting demons fashion is not a commodity oh yeah it’s a glimmer of hope in a cruel world polygon reported the show’s real fault was in the writing with the review Kaz is an easy character to hate because he’s based entirely on Jaden’s Twitter persona his philosophical statements are I roll inducing in every moment of exaggerated teenage angst results in you muttering give me a break under your breath geek.com called neo yoki OA quote mesmerizing train wreck and is failure all about the music Jayden has announced new musical projects on several occasions but he never seems to go through with them in 2016 he tweeted that he wanted to become a kpop star and even though he confirmed he’d be dropping a kpop single the track never materialized in April 2017 he said that he his sister and his girlfriend Odessa Adlon we’re starting a rock band together even posting a preview of a track but nothing ever came of that either then in November 2017.
Jayden finally dropped the album he’d been working on all these years how long’s he been working on this damn song the 17 track sire a beautiful confusion received mixed reviews from critics but those who didn’t like it really didn’t like it pitchfork caught fire a paranoid fantasy that makes his new-age thinking with apocalyptic rhetoric it would be generous to call this kind of song craft scatterbrain Jayden finally revealed his true intention for sire telling Vanity Fair I want that vibe to come across so that people can say hey everybody isn’t always happy 24/7 because people like to think oh there are certain people in the world that just have it all and they have perfect lives but that’s just so not true and this is a big shine on that that’s exactly what it sounds like kenny turn it around Jayden has been quietly re-establishing himself as an actor over the years securing low-key roles into feature films in 2018 skate kitchen and life in a year and he plans to tour North America promoting his album in early 2018 the rapper also intends to release a deluxe acapella edition of sire in 2018 and to also drop its follow-up Aris before the end of the year so while he might not have been cut out for a career in Hollywood don’t expect Jaden Smith to go quietly or to stop sharing his genius 50% of human DNA you shared with the banana unbelievable.
