Jaden Smith has been doing a lot of reflecting about his life lately.
The actor and son of Will Smith recently took to Instagram live to let fan know he plans on leaving the City of Angels and feels like he’s “failed” his dad.
“It’s going to be so funny to tell my dad that I’ve failed straight up,” Jaden says in the video. “Everybody follow your heart, you know what I’m saying? Do exactly what you want to do, be who you want to be.”
“I’m about to move out of LA,” he added. “There’s a lot of bad things here. Create the life that you want for yourself. Don’t try to be somebody else. It’s hard these days to really create the life you want for yourself because there’s nobody really here that’s like supporting the youth or the youth’s creativity.”
Jaden appears to be sitting in his car at a Department of Motor Vehicles center in the now deleted clip. Hopefully his mini meltdown is just a little driver’s test annoyance?
See what else Jaden had to say below.

Rowan Blanchard is a ray of light. Many people think 2016 has turned out to be a stale potato chip: hard to swallow, chewy, and altogether just worse than it was supposed to be. Still, despite being a year that historians may cringe at, there are a number of people who have fought to change the world for the better this year.

1. Shailene Woodley
This past year, Shailene Woodley proved herself to be far more than an actress, using her fame and her platform to raise awareness for and to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, a crude oil line that may taint the water supply for Standing Rock, a sacred Native American site. Shailene not only posted about the injustice on Instagram, but she also went to North Dakota herself to protest, getting arrested in the process, but coming back stronger than ever.

2. Rowan Blanchard
Rowan Blanchard has been hailed a feminist icon, and for good reason: she uses her Instagram to post about causes that are meaningful to her, from the election to the patriarchy, and she speaks out whenever she can about what feminism means to her and its impact on the world. Rowan is a hopeful indicator that the new generation is smart, thoughtful, and progressive — and that our future may be bright after all.
Kid Cudi recently took to his Facebook to thank Jaden and a bunch more celebs and friends for their love and support while he seeks treatment for depression.
“Thank You for opening your hearts and extending your love and support during a troubling time. I wanted to let yall know it meant the world to me. I have nothing but love for you. Words can’t really express how much it made my heart glow. I look forward to better days. Feelin’ great and brand new. Can’t wait to run into each and everyone of you and deliver a big hug. Be ready! Peace, love and light to all!!” he wrote.
