Will Smith's driving lessons

Will Smith is teaching his son to drive.

The 'Focus' star's 16-year-old son Jaden has recently got his learner's permit and has revealed his "awesome" dad is teaching him "a lot" about driving.

He said: "My dad is awesome. I wouldn't be where I am right now if it wasn't for all of the things he's taught me.

"He's taught me a lot about driving and just about life. And I love his songs, I go back and re-listen to those songs and the newer songs he's made in the studio too."

Whilst Jaden takes musical inspiration from his dad, his 14-year-old sister Willow revealed she takes inspiration from her mother Jada Pinkett Smith.

She shared: "When I was younger, my brother and I toured with my mom's band, Wicked Wisdom, so heavy metal was one of the first types of music I heard a lot and I'm still really inspired by it.

"I'm into Lolawolf, Tune-Yards, the Runaways, Pink Floyd, and I freaking love Bikini Kill! My mom listens to my playlists on Hype Machine all the time and I listen to hers - that's how I found out about Radiohead and Lamb of God."

And when it comes to music, the 'Whip My Hair' singer is insistent on not using any auto-tune on her tracks because she feels it masks "true emotion".

She told Billboard magazine: "I don't like having any effects on my voice, I feel like putting a lot of auto-tune on it really covers up the essence of you and is like putting a cloud over real true emotion."
