His famous parents often face condemnation from fans across the world for their parenting style, but Hollywood Power Couple, Will and Jada-Pinkett Smith have over the years defended their choices. “I want my kids to be happy and I want them to be themselves. I am not a conventional parent, which I take pride in”, Jada opened up in an interview. That is how the Smiths have raised our rising star, Jaden Smith. At just 17, Jaden is not like your average teenage brother and he doesn’t wish to be. He runs his own label and lifestyle brand, models, sometimes raps and acts whenever he can.
The bonafide cool MSFT prides himself in experimenting with the limits of fame, his identity and individuality. From attending prom in dress to starring in Louis Vuitton’s womenswear campaign, Jaden has always rebelled against conforming to gender norms. According to insiders, Smith’s gender fluidity is responsible for the spike his modelling career has seen, thus increasing his net worth.
It’s evident that the “Karate Kid” Star has influenced how menswear is defined for his millennial supporters. In addition to being named as Best Dressed by Huffington Post, Jaden is set to star in Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix show, “The Get Down”. From his undeniable social media influence, to his estimated net worth of $8 million, I can guarantee you that this is just the beginning for Jaden. If you have any doubts, this week alone, Nylon Magazine announced the MSFTRep as the first man to grace their cover alone, for their August Issue. Take That!
