Jaden Smith 2016: Alive, Well And Wants To Change The World - ‘Where’s The Love?’
When Jaden Smith wants to change the world, he is going to change the world. Along with his sister Willow even at that.
In a recent interview, Jaden Smith opens up about his parents being his personal role models. Will and Jada Pinkett Smith chose to home school their kids. Just Jared has it that his parents are the sources of their (Willow and Jaden's) inspiration to change the world.
Jaden stresses the importance of affecting the world in a positive way. He points to technology and music which drives science, spirituality and education.
Recently, he joined the crew to promote Black Eyed Peas' renewed version of "Where's the Love?" In a separate interview, will.i.am wants to focus the song into bringing everyone together to promote peace and love. He also wants to focus on investing in education. The music video showcases Jamie Foxx, Mary J. Blige, P.Diddy, Justin Timberlake, Kendall Jenner and more.
The Black Eyed Peas, iTunes (where the track is available) and Interscope Records promise to donate all of the proceeds from the song's purchase in the United States to I.am.angel Foundation. The foundation aims to transform lives through education, inspiration and opportunity created by will.I.am.
This move draws attention to the struggle of spending on education. In effect, it also includes unemployment, poverty and murder or crime.
Jaden Smith's contribution to the song is a short rap but it is clear that his goals are in line with the song's goal. He wants to build a world where kids don't feel like going to school. Instead, a world where kids are glad to go to school. "Where every kid goes to school, and like 50 percent of children don't drop out. Where they feel like their teachers are actually on their side. Or they feel like law enforcement is actually on their side. We want to create a society that is working for us and with us - and we're working for society, not against it," says Smith.
