Jaden & Willow Smith Gave a Strange Interview & Talked About Their Concept of Time, Breathing, & 'Prana Energy'

Jaden and Willow Smith gave a joint interview to the New York Times’ T Magazine and the duo covered some many strange topics.

The 16-year-old rapper/actor and 14-year-old singer opened up to the mag about school, music, and their favorite books, “prana energy,” time, breathing, and many more topics.

Here’s a portion of the interview about breathing:

  • Willow: Breathing is meditation; life is a meditation. You have to breathe in order to live, so breathing is how you get in touch with the sacred space of your heart.
    Jaden: When babies are born, their soft spots bump: It has, like, a heartbeat in it. That’s because energy is coming through their body, up and down.
    Willow: Prana energy.
    Jaden: It’s prana energy because they still breathe through their stomach. They remember. Babies remember.
    Willow: When they’re in the stomach, they’re so aware, putting all their bones together, putting all their ligaments together. But they’re shocked by this harsh world.
    Jaden: By the chemicals and things, and then slowly…
    Willow: As they grow up, they start losing.
    Jaden: You know, they become just like us.”

      Strange indeed. I wonder if they really believe this or they’re trying to be something different. Are they scientologists? Because I wouldn’t be surprised!

      If you read the whole story they make it sound like they don’t even go to school. Not sure how that is legal.

      Scientology gets real annoying sometimes. But I will admit that some of it is true.

      As crazy as their answers were, I get a feeling that they were somewhat induced to them. Interviewer: “I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?”. This is a recipe for disaster. Any teenager would take this question and blow it out of proportions. It doesn’t explain all the f*cked up things they said, but it rubs me the wrong way to think that they might have been let into this.
