Jaden Smith, His Skirts and the New Mainstream

11 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Let’s get the facts out of the way first. Jaden Smith, the oldest child of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has been signed on to model womenswear for Louis Vuitton. He has appeared on his own Instagram account wearing skirts and nail polish, and his dad recently said on a BBC radio show, as lovingly as possible, that the whole hands-off parenting philosophy may have gone a bit too far. If you’re wondering right now, “Why do we care about Jaden Smith?” the answer perfectly illustrates the great ouroboros of our digital lives. As someone like Jaden, who was born. »

Jaden Smith’s Adventures in Gender Fluidity: What It Means, Who Profits

11 February 2016 5:16 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jaden Smith is having a moment of transition — from precocious Hollywood son to high-earning spokesperson for a new frontier in gender identity. Jaden, the 17-year-old star of Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming Netflix series “The Get Down,” has generated considerable heat in 2016 for the way he’s expressed his gender both on social platforms like Instagram and by modeling womenswear in a national campaign for Louis Vuitton. “What he’s reflecting in these bold choices is a refusal to be labelled or combined in one stereotype or another, in terms of who you are and how you dress,” Eliza Byard, executive director of the Gay, »

11 February 2016 7:33 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Although Will Smith is proud that his son Jaden Smith keeps challenging masculinity norms through fashion, the movie star admitted his initial reaction wasn’t as supportive. “He is so completely comfortable and confident in who he is and when I look at him, I really admire that,” Smith said in a recent interview with News.Au. “Jaden has his own clothing line and then he started wearing a skirt.” Smith added, “Then I was like, ‘Ok. You cannot wear a skirt.’ He said to me, ‘Dad, it’s fine. It’s going to be so hot all the kids will be wearing it. »

Jaden Smith has been using fashion choices to challenge traditional views on masculinity again and again, and his movie star father is proud. “You know, there’s a really powerful internal quality as an artist that as parents we encourage,” Will Smith said on BBC Radio 1Xtra with A.Dot. “You gotta get out on the edge, you have to try things, you have to be comfortable doing things that people don’t agree with and you have to be comfortable doing things that you could fail.” The actor, who most recently starred in “Concussion,” added that, “Jaden is 100 percent fearless. »

First Trailer Arrives For New Netflix Drama The Get Down

7 January 2016 10:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the category of ‘Things To Be Excited About In 2016,’ The Get Down has to be near the top of that list, for two very simple reasons: Netflix and Baz Luhrmann. For the first time, we will see a marriage of this groundbreaking streaming platform, and this award-winning filmmaker, as he delivers the first part of his musical drama. This is a series that Luhrmann has been reportedly developing for an entire decade – but it seems he has finally found the right home for the project, and we now have a trailer for it.

The Get Down depicts the rise of hip-hop, punk and disco, against a backdrop of a New York City that is simultaneously giving birth to Bronx housing developments, Studio 54, Cbgb, and a rapidly expanding skyline. The narrative plays out through the lives of a group of teenagers who are trying to keep up with the changing society in which they live, »

See the Mesmerizing New Trailer For Baz Luhrmann's Netflix Series The Get Down

6 January 2016 7:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Visionary director Baz Luhrmann is known for bringing gorgeous movies like Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby to life, and judging by the trailer for his new Netflix series, The Get Down, the show will be equally as beautiful. Luhrmann's project focuses on the world of hip-hop in 1970s New York, revolving around a group of teens navigating inner-city life in the South Bronx. The trailer is jam-packed with colorful disco lights, old-school style, and heartbreaking musical performances. The 13-episode series will premiere sometime later in 2016 and includes a talented, eclectic cast with the likes of Jaden Smith, Jimmy Smits, and Dope's Shameik Moore. Watch the trailer above, and check out the other exciting shows coming to Netflix in 2016! »

Watch: First Trailer for Netflix’s Baz Luhrmann Show ‘The Get Down’

6 January 2016 10:59 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix released the first trailer for its upcoming original series “The Get Down.”

The show, created by Baz Luhrmann, is a music-driven drama taking place in New York during the 1970s. It tells the story of a group of South Bronx teenagers that are at the center of the birth of hip-hop, punk and disco. The trailer was first revealed on Wednesday during Netflix’s keynote address at CES.

“The pale faced media tells us we’re all going to hell,” a voiceover in the trailer says. “But maybe we’re just the first ones to light the fire.”

Luhrmann has been working on the concept for the period drama for 10 years. He said back in February of last year that Netflix was the natural home for “The Get Down.”

“I’ve been obsessed with the idea of how a city in its lowest moment, forgotten and half destroyed, could »

The Get Down Trailer: Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix Show Looks Like an Effing Winner

6 January 2016 10:09 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Baz Luhrmann's first TV show hits Netflix later this year, and now it has a very funkified first trailer to get you excited. The Get Down follows a group of New York City youngsters — including Jaden Smith and Dope's Shameik Moore —  in the 1970s on the cusp of discovering hip-hop through the guidance of Grandmaster Flash. It's practically the antithesis of Scorsese's upcoming Vinyl in that it stars tons of gorgeous Afros, beautiful musical performances (Herizen Guardiola, you better sang!), and a sobering depiction of inner-city life in the Bronx in the '70s that'll leave you in tears by the trailer's end. Jimmy Smits, Giancarlo Esposito, and Justice Smith also star in what looks to be one of the year's best new shows. »

Watch: First Trailer For Baz Luhrmann's Netflix Series 'The Get Down' With Shameik Moore, Jaden Smith, And More

6 January 2016 9:57 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Funny, I was just wondering about "The Get Down." Last summer, Baz Luhrmann's brewing Netflix show took a brief production hiatus and then not much was heard after that. It seems it was minor hiccup, and things went swimmingly as Neflix has unveiled a big taste of the new series today.  Read More: First Look: Cast of Baz Luhrmann's '70s-Set Netflix Show 'The Get Down' Including The Star Of Sundance Hit 'Dope' Starring Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Herizen Guardiola, Jaden Smith, Skylan Brooks, Tremaine Browne, Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jimmy Smits and Giancarlo Esposito, the show will take viewers into the streets, clubs, and music scene of 1970s New York City, and it looks like there will be plenty of grit to go with the glamor. Here's the official synopsis:  The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. »
