Jaden Smith has lost the Smith and is now just Jaden.

But it has nothing to do with his famous parents Will and Jada's now-notorious "entanglements", as he initiated the move last year.

He explained why he no longer has a surname.

"I realized that Willow changed her name to Willow at some point in time. And that she was no longer Willow Smith. 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 said in an interview with Zane Smith. 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. I wanted to just make that little distinction there, just a little bit, so that I could just ... different things are happening."
