Jaden Smith's weirdest most interesting interview yet reveals he was a vampire for a while

You know how Will and Jada Pinkett Smith never seem to age? It's obviously because they're vampires, right? And now, we have proof.

Their son, Jaden Smith, just insisted in an interview that he used to be a vampire, which would totally make sense because of his parents.

"During a period of my life, I was Gothic," Jaden said during an interview with the French fashion magazine Numéro. "I was only wearing black and I was hiding from the sun because I was a vampire."

OK, so, like, a fashion vampire. I didn't really know that was a thing, but I didn't know a lot of the things Jaden Smith does were things, so that's fine.

Oh, wait.

"I was a vampire, for real," Jaden continued. "I could not expose myself to the sun and I was only wearing black trench coats."

It seems like he may be confused about what an actual vampire is. Wearing black and staying out of the sun does not a vampire make. Or maybe he's just sparing us all the gory details about the whole drinking-blood thing?

Luckily, Jaden's vampire phase was short-lived. He's recovered now.

"I open myself up to wear more colorful things, to go out in daylight," he explained.

Welp. Congrats to Jaden on his evolution.
