Jaden Smith Believes He Was a Vampire, Seriously

Surprise! Jaden Smith said something that sounds insane.

There was a time where I, too, was obsessed with vampires. My fixation began when True Blood first aired back in 2008, an enthusiasm that only escalated with every vampire-centric TV show and movie released: Twilight; The Vampire Diaries; Being Human.

I'll admit, there were many wistful moments where my friends and I wished we were vampires, and actually thought about what we would do if we were ever to become vampires. But never did I once think I was an actual vampire.

Not like Jaden Smith, who, in a new interview with international fashion magazine Numéro maintains that he was a vampire, and is very serious about it.

“During a period of my life, I was Gothic. I was only wearing black and I was hiding from the sun because I was a vampire. I was a vampire, for real. Now I'm out of this phase. I open myself to the fact wear more colorful things, to go out in daylight. I share much more mixed energy.”

I have questions, Jaden. Who was your maker? Where did you get your supply of blood while you were a vampire? Did you shimmer in the sun like the homie Edward Cullen, or were you not able to go in the sun at all? Do you know that being goth and being a vampire isn’t synonymous, nor are they necessarily mutually exclusive?

Last year, DJBooth's own Yoh asserted that The Weeknd is a vampire, and for whatever reason, that seems much more feasible than Jaden Smith ever being one.

Sorry, Jaden, but we're not buying it.
