Willow and Jaden Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith's kids Jaden and Willow both have new music on the way, and they recently gave a bizarre interview in The New York Times' T Magazine in which they pretentiously blasted kids at "normal schools."

Writer Su Wu quickly sets the tone of the interview by asking what they are currently reading.

"Quantum Physics. Osho," said Willow, 14, (Osho referring to the late Indian mystic). "'The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life' (Drunvalo Melchizedek) and ancient texts; things that can't be pre-dated," added Jaden, 16, of his own reading list.

Jada Pinkett-Smith has lashed out at all the news outlets and tabloids making a big deal out of daughter Willow's recent photographs with pal Moises Arias, calling them "covert pedophiles."

TMZ.com caught up with the actress Wednesday night at Los Angeles International Airport and she, like us, said it's all much ado about nothing.

"Here's the deal," she told TMZ cameras, "there was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation."

"You guys are projecting your trash onto it -- and you're acting like covert pedophiles and that's not cool," she added.

10 Superstar Actors Who Turned Down Iconic Movie and TV Roles

Neo - Deal With It
Could you picture Tom Selleck outrunning boulders and beating up Nazis as Indiana Jones? Or lovable high school truant Matthew Broderick brewing up blue meth as Walter White? Highly doubtful, since Harrison Ford and Bryan Cranston’s iconic characters are impossible to play by any other actor no matter how talented or accomplished.

Yet it's surprising to consider how many iconic movies and TV series almost were narrowly miscast with the wrong stars. Even though their careers may have suffered from turning down these blockbuster hits, these characters luckilly found their proper Hollywood vo...

The 10 Fittest Male Celebrities In Hollywood
Chris Hemsworth has problems most men would envy. For example, he put on so much muscle while he was preparing to play "Thor" that his costume didn't fit.

The Australian star told the Los Angeles Times in 2011: "I got the part and immediately started looking at the comic books, and the guy is 500 pounds or something and looks like Schwarzenegger. And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that.' But I have to get bigger. (The filmmakers) kept saying 'Yeah, get as big as you can, as big as you can.'"

The "Thor" costume was altered to fit his new shape, and movie execs ordered Hemsworth to g...

Usually it's the women who are objectified in Hollywood, but the men are fair game too! These guys are hard working actors, singers, and athletes who either take time to work out for their six-pack abs or just let nature take its course.

Sexy Male Stars At The 86th Annual Academy Awards
It's usually all about the ladies and who they're wearing on the Oscars red carpet. But there are plenty of guys that look really incredible too.

Bradley Cooper, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for "American Hustle," wore a Tom Ford tuxedo to the event. He was accompanied by his British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Jared Leto easily stole the coveted Oscar from Cooper for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club." But we don't think he won the red carpet competition.

Leto's tux was an unusual combination of black and white with a red bow tie. We can forgive him his style choice b...
