In a layman world, a child artist declaring to be gender fluid would be regarded as a career suicide. The industry would burn down the heinous name before it took flight in the limelight.
But that is not what’s happening with 18-year-old Jaden Smith. On the contrary, Smith has been signed on for new high-budget movies and also by renowned brands to endorse their products line.
Earlier this year, Smith joined the illustrious ranks of models chosen to represent Louis Vuitton for their new women’s line. The brand confirms that Smith is the first male model to be endorsing their female clothing line.
Son of the power couple of Hollywood, Smith is known to be a rule-bender since his early years. At the age of 15, he sought an emancipation ruling with the consent of his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. And he also declared himself to be gender fluid before coming of age.
Junior Smith’s bold decisions are openly supported by his family. Smith’s younger sister Willow Smith praised her brother in not letting himself be defined by societal norms of being either a girl or a boy.
These brazen acts of Smith have earned him the title of the “trendsetter of the new generation”. Not only on issues regarding cross-dressing, this audacious teen model has set himself apart with his unique understandings and comprehensions of the world as a whole.
As of 2016, Smith is one of the richest teen celebrities. He is already ruling the industry with an approximate net worth of $8 million which has seemingly increased in the aftermath of his gender fluidity claims.
Rumors of him dating Stella Hudgens, the younger sister of actress and singer Vanessa Hudgens, were circulating a couple years back. Also, back in 2013, speculations were made regarding whether reality TV star and model Kylie Jenner was his girlfriend when she mentioned that she was grateful for meeting Jaden. However, Smith himself has never confirmed any affair.
