Only days after Willow’s boho shoot for CR Fashion Book, the young fashionista is joined by her brother Willow in another fierce shoot, this time for Billboard Magazine. Will Smith and Jade Pinkett-Smith’s talented brood not only throw serious model poses but they also open up on a range of topics from mummy and daddy to music.
Here are snippets of their interview.
Willow: “When I was younger, my brother and I toured with my mom’s band, Wicked Wisdom, so heavy metal was one of the first types of music I heard a lot and I’m still really inspired by it. I’m into Lolawolf, Tune-Yards, the Runaways, Pink Floyd, and I freaking love Bikini Kill! My mom listens to my playlists on Hype Machine all the time and I listen to hers — that’s how I found out about Radiohead and Lamb of God.”
Jaden: “My dad is awesome. I wouldn’t be where I am right now if it wasn’t for all of the things he’s taught me. He’s taught me a lot about driving and just about life. And I love his songs, I go back and re-listen to those songs and the newer songs he’s made in the studio too.”
Willow: “High-fashion nomad. I could literally climb a mountain and survive a couple nights in nature. That’s a requirement for my clothes because one day I was on the freeway and I saw a mountain, so I literally just pulled over and climbed it. If you’re an artist, the way you dress also gives people a vibe of how your music is and your personality.”
On Each Other
Jaden: “Kanye, Jay Z and Willow — those are all people I watch out for. The music Willow listens to is really really interesting. She’s really amazing, probably my favorite artist and we collaborate any time that we can.”
