I will readily admit that I do not necessarily understand the lives of celebrities (after all, I am not one), but sometimes their reactions to problematic situations are too ridiculous to not shake my head at. Remember that whole “Willow Smith is 13 years old and in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old” thing that came up this morning? If not, go take a look at it. Just do it. I’ll wait. Okay now, did it make you get the heebie jeebies, too? Good, you’re a human being with normal instincts who thinks it’s weird for kids to be in bed with with shirtless adults.* But we can’t help wondering what Willow’s parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith think about the whole debacle!
The 20-year-old in question is one Moises Arias, an actor best known for his role in Hannah Montana. Apparently, he is a friend of the family and hangs out a ton with little Jaden Smith, Willow’s sibling who is best known for being Will Smith’s tiny clone and wearing Iron Man costumes on dates with Kylie Jenner. According to “sources close to the Smith family” who spoke to TMZ, his status as a good friend of the Smith bunch has reportedly made this all cool with Jada and Will.
The source told TMZ that Willow’s parents consider her “very mature” and that as long as her decisions “don’t clearly cross the line” then they trust her to make decent ones. See, the issue I take with this is that Willow Smith is a 13-year-old child who does not yet have the capacity nor the responsibility to make all her own decisions; if it were my child, I would hope to prevent any sort of line-crossing before happened rather than getting down to business after the fact.
Sadly, TMZ reports this regarding how her parents see the pic:
Will and Jada view the now-famous photo of Willow in bed with 20-year-old “Hannah Montana” star Moises Arias as innocent fun … an expression of art.
Right. Because when I was 20, I loved those fun times where I sat around shirtless with 13-year-olds! You know, because that’s totally normal behavior for an adult man to do around a little girl. Excuse me now, I need to go wash my hands and bleach my eyes out.
*If you didn’t have that reaction, I apologize for assuming you are a human being with normal gauges of appropriate behavior between adults and children. My bad.
