Willow Smith isn’t the only member of her family who can raise eyebrows with black and white bed photos. A photo of her brother Jaden Smith has surfaced in which he’s sitting shirtless on a bed practically in Kylie Jenner’s lap. So much maturity to prove, so little time.
This photo comes from an April 25 post on Kylie’s Tumblr page. It looks to be a reblog from Moises Arias’ Tumblr page, which is now password protected (shocker). If you recall, Moises is the 20-year-old who appeared shirtless with Willow Smith in last week’s controversial photo. Jaden and Kylie’s photo is captioned “*Ksss* Ahhh…
2014.” I’m not entirely sure what that means, but paired with this photo, and considering it comes from a 20-year-old’s Tumblr, it feels kind of ooky.
Granted, there isn’t the age difference issue here (Kylie is 16 and Jaden is 15, and they’ve been a rumored couple for a while now), and you can see that there’s obviously someone else in the room with them (this could even be from the same hang-out session as the last photo). But this whole situation still weirds me out, partly because it just screams “LOOK HOW GROWN-UP AND COOL WE ARE!” and partly because of the context. These teenagers (at least one of them barely a teenager) are hanging out with a 20-year-old, which is iffy in itself. But then he’s presumably taking photos of them like this and adding captions like that?
One thing’s for sure. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Kris Jenner must be the co-presidents of some sort of “My Kids Can Do Whatever the Hell They Want As Long As It Gets Attention” club. We all know Kris’ approach to parenting, and Jada further proved her stance when she responded to the Willow photo controversy by saying there was “nothing sexual” about it, and adding, “You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.” Ah, parenting.
