Will Smith explains why he and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith don't say they're married anymore
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith look at marriage in a different way as the actor explains the reason why they don't say they are 'married'
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith give us couple goals EVERY DAY. “We don’t even say we're married anymore. We refer to ourselves as life partners, where you get into that space where you realize you are literally with somebody for the rest of your life,” he said.
In a recent interview on TIDAL’s Rap Radar podcast, the actor confessed that he and his wife had started using "life partners" to describe their relationship rather than settling for the word 'married'.
“There’s no deal breakers. There’s nothing she could do — ever. Nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death and it feels so good to get to that space," he added. Jada also seemed to hint at a similar understanding when she appeared on a Sway in the Morning radio interview. "Here's the thing about Will and I — [we] are family. That is never going down. It’s just not. Ever,” she said.
"We are family. Take out all that whole marriage/relationship crap, at the end of the day, Will and I are family. I am going to hold him down, doesn’t matter," Jada continued. She added that no matter what happens, Will can always rely on her and be sure that she is by his side. “All that relationship and what people think ideas of a husband, partner and all that, man, whatever. At the end of the day, that is a man that can rely on me for the rest of his life, period," she added.
For a long time reports had been surfacing that suggested the couple is headed for divorce. However, Will put an end to all these rumors in his new song, 'In The Clique'. "Stop the divorce rumors and mind your damn business,” he raps on the track. During the interview, Will also revealed that he has been working on new music and very soon his fans will get a taste of it.
“I just started writing again, just trying to find the way to say the stuff that’s in my mind,” he said on the podcast. “I’m burning again creatively, and I have outlets that I’ve never had before.” He added that he is “enjoying the social demand for authenticity” and cannot wait for his fans to see what he has been working on. “I’m in the studio now and I have real things to say,” Smith said. “That’s the thing that’s gonna be new and different and interesting about the music that I create going forward.”
At the same time, Will, who joined Instagram last year shed light on why he finally made the decision of making his debut on social media. "Social media demands authenticity. Social media pushes you more and more into having you reveal what’s true. ‘Cause if you don’t, TMZ is going to. It’s a beautiful thing. I’m actually enjoying the push. Nobody’s happy that doesn’t get to be themselves," he said.
