Jaden Smith is a lot of things: philosopher, water entrepreneur, son (of Will Smith, duh), wearer of skirts, Batman… but did you guys know that he used to be a vampire? He isn’t anymore, but he, like, totally was.
The internet’s most quotable free spirit told Numéro about his past life as a vampire (I thought vampires were vampires forever, but what the hell do I know?) and it sounds like an incredibly inconvenient lifestyle choice (is it a choice? I don’t know anymore).
“During a period of my life, I was Gothic. I was only wearing black and I was hiding from the sun because I was a vampire,” he says. “I was a vampire, for real. Now I’m out of this phase. I open myself to the fact, wear more colorful things, to go out in daylight. I share much more mixed energy.”
I dunno, Jaden, I think being a vampire is more than wearing black and hiding from the sun. I’m p sure it also involves some light-to-heavy blood sucking as well as the whole being undead thing. But you do you, my friend. Glad that phase of your life has passed, because if Twilight taught us anything it’s that dating as a vampire totally sucks.
