Jaden Smith Refuses to Be a 'Slave to Money' & Only Owns One Pair of Shoes

“He has refused to be a slave to money,” Will told the magazine. “I so respect that. The younger generation is less of an ownership generation, anyway. And it’s such an interesting thing to watch, because I came from a middle-class background, but, you know, our lights and gas would be cut off from not paying the bill. I grew up in a house where you would need the kerosene heaters in the winter in case the bills didn’t get paid.”

He continued, saying: “And he’s from the complete other end of the spectrum. And it’s so interesting to me that from growing up in that space, he could see the need for things in a way that he’s rejecting. He’s like, ‘I’m not gonna let myself need things in that way’ — but I would like him to get another pair of shoes.”

    What an idiot. If you can formulate a thought about money and know what it does, it’s probably too late. You are a slave.Did you or someone buy that pair of shoes? Did someone get paid to make it? sell it? GTFO
