1. DO NOT TAKE LIFE ADVICE FROM HOLLYWOOD’S YOUTH!
“This is why we don’t let celebrity children make decisions on the education system,” was the tweet that prompted this entire idea. Jaden Smith received a lot of flack for jumping on Twitter, claiming that education was a brainwashing tool and that we should all rebel by dropping out of school.
What Jaden seems to not understand is that he’s standing on a platform much higher than many of us and his words might go in one ear and out the other for you, but for many young and impressionable youth, his inner most thoughts made public are gospel. He’s not alone. There’s a list of Hollywood youth we wish would realize their influence is bigger than them and they should use their powers for good.
But until they do, we’re warning you–DO NOT TAKE LIFE ADVICE FROM HOLLYWOOD’S YOUTH! From Miley’s appropriation of Black culture to Bow’s Wow’s regressive career, please do not let these misguided youths be your guide.
2. Advice #1: Drop Out Of School Because It’s Brainwashing You
According to Jaden, we’d be better off without education. Suggesting that we’d all be better off without school is irresponsible.
Jaden had attended the New Village Leadership Academy, a private school his parents, Will and Jada founded in California five years ago, until it closed its doors in June because of lack of funding.
The academy used “study-tech,” a teaching method created by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, something to which Will Smith alluded on “Live with Regis and Kelly” in 2007. There are “powerful educational concepts that we believe in,” Smith said on the show.
Is this why Jaden thinks we should all ban the education system–because he’s learned powerful education concepts?
3. Jaden Smith Should Take His Own Advice
After being the center of attention for his uninformed “education” tweets, Jaden tweeted the best advice that he should indeed follow.
4. Advice #3: Randomly Choose Not To Use Your Own Legs
Justin Bieber…we just…well. There are times when you’ll be tired. But please, march on. Don’t ask the people around you to be your legs. Just, don’t.
5. Advice #5: Don’t Move Forward In Your Career
We can all learn this powerful lesson from Bow Wow, as we’ve seen him go from the next big thing in adorable Hip Hop to hosting the show where he used to top the countdown. Sad. Don’t do this. You should only move forward in your career.
Oh and now he’s working right alongside his ex, Angela Simmons. We don’t think you need to do that either. Working with someone you’re dating is awful, but working with your ex is equally as bad.
6. Advice #7: Get As Many Stamps On Your Passport As Possible Before Puberty
Because you’ll be too busy in school (word to Jaden Smith), you won;t have time to travel the world in reckless abandon like the Jolie-Pitt clan. While learning about exciting cultures is beneficial, there’s more to life than worldly travels.
*This is actually one piece of celebrity youth advice we want to take, but we can’t. We’re already past puberty and we’ve got to go to work.*
7. Advice #8: Live Recklessly
While it’s fun to live young, wild and free, we don’t all have that luxury. Please don’t follow Chris Brown’s lead in handling emotions, addressing your issues or expressing yourself. It will only end badly. Or in court.
Celebrities who also give out this piece of advice includes: Rihanna
8. Advice #9: Launch Your Career With An Adult Film
Montana Fishburne attempted to jumpstart her career under the tutelage of Kim Kardashian. She quickly learned porn wasn’t the way to create a name for herself.
9. Advice #10: Be A No Call/No Show At Work
Lindsay has patented the art of not showing up to work, often living Chris Brown’s advice to live recklessly. You like your lifestyle–being able to go on vacation, buy that cute pair of shoes? Well, you got to go to work honey! Don’t let Lindsay steer you wrong.
10. Advice #11: Get Pregnant In Your Teens & Get A Show!
This advice is self-explanatory. If you’re a teenager, please don’t look at MTV’s sob story shows, “16 & Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” as the upside of having a kid in your youth. While the show doesn’t glorify parenting as a child, it does leave itself open for misinterpretation. Many young girls watching think they too could be a reality show star for getting knocked up before they’re ready.
