Jaden Smith bounced into the spotlight Sunday night at the Grammy Awards, in a surprise appearance dancing on stage with Justin Bieber, as Usher quietly bowed out. Fans were going Â“What? Who is that kid? Oh, right. ItÂ’s the Karate Kid. I think itÂ’s Jaden Smith!Â” Sure enough, it was.
Justin Bieber, 16, and Jaden, 12, know each other pretty well, notes Hollywood Reporter. They have already worked together on the Â“Never Say NeverÂ” song used in the sound track of Â“The Karate Kid.Â” And in the trackÂ’s video, The Bieb refers to his younger pal Jaden as his Â“lilÂ’ broÂ”.
And if that isnÂ’t enough, the two celebs have been going around Los Angeles together, stopping at theaters and giving fans a thrill, where BieberÂ’s Â“Never Say NeverÂ” is playing. JadenÂ’s dad, Will Smith has been helping out with JustinÂ’s efforts to break into acting. If anyone has the connections, the senior Smith would be the one.
LetÂ’s seeÂ—Usher helped Justin Bieber break into music, and now Will Smith is helping with his acting career. The Bieb sure knows how to pick friends.
Nothing is official yet. Â“WeÂ’re just kind of looking at stuff,Â” says Bieber. And no doubt Jaden Smith wonÂ’t be far behind sister Willow and her Wizard with a new project of his own. Stay tuned, all around.
