Jaden Smith Says President Obama Hinted at Alien Life
Jaden Smith believes in aliens and it's all President Obama's fault. Say what?!
Smith, the 14-year-old son of Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and the alleged BF of Kylie Jenner, the stepsister of Kim Kardashian, is featured in the May 2013 issue of Wonderland. We know, it's quite a tangled celeb web Smith weaves.
In this ish, he proclaims his belief in alien life-forms and that it was the leader of the free world who justified it for him. Can we just say that we're so glad we're not his publicists right now?!
"I like aliens!" the rapper and actor said. Right, because who doesn't? He continued, "I think aliens are really cool, because they exist. I talked to President Obama about the extraterrestrials. He said he could neither confirm nor deny the existence of aliens, which means they're real."
Wow, that was a real leap, wasn't it? Obama's comments certainly don't suggest the conclusion that Smith jumped to headlong.
Poor Barry O. First Jay-Z's 'Open Letter' rap lyric, where he expressly stated he received permission to go on a controversial and criticized trip to travel-embargoed Cuba from the president, which the White House and Obama himself denied, leading the prez to distance himself from the rapper. Now this?!
We don't think Obama was being quite so literal and that he should definitely put some space between himself and the famous people saying dumb crap and relating it back to him ... like this, which as Smith's other quote: "If people think we're the only people that live in this universe, then something is wrong with them."
Jaden, how about we leave that up to scientists with degrees, educations and who spend time studying this stuff? His father Will has long held ties to Scientology, which believes in extraterrestrial life-forms. So these comments aren't about the president. They follow a Scientologist agenda.
Oh, and as for his "romance" with Kylie Jenner, he was coy, and wouldn't say whatever it is they are involved in is a relationship.
"I was in L.A., we were all hanging out," the teen bragged. "Then I went to New York and she came too, then she came here [to London] and surprised me, so that's pretty baller. She's one of my best friends. It's pretty awesome."
Jenner's half-sister and 'X Factor' host Khloe used the same phrase -- BFFs -- saying, "I think he's so sweet … but I will also say they're teenagers and I really can't keep teenagers straight. You just never know. Everything is up and down, but they're definitely best friends." Mmm hmm. Maybe Kylie believes in aliens, too.
