Jaden low-key dropped the stage name “Jaden Smith” last year, leaving out the family’s name from his brand. He recently had an interview with Apple Music and Zane Lowe where he revealed the reason behind his decision.

“I realized that Willow changed her name to Willow at some point in time. And that she was no longer Willow Smith,” he began about his sister.

“Yeah, it took me a while. It took me a while. Because if you look Willow Smith up, it’ll still come up. But then it took me a while to see that it was just Willow. And I was like, ‘Yo. That’s so strong,'” Jaden continued.

“That’s strong. Willow. You feel like you don’t have to say your last name. You’re just Willow. I create different characters for myself and that’s also one of the reasons I love Bowie so much, but I create different characters for myself and it’s like, Jaden, that’s music and Jaden Smith, that’s 501(c)(3), that’s acting in movies.”

The rapper and actor added, “I wanted to just make that little distinction there, just a little bit, so that I could just … different things are happening.”
