Jaden Smith Gives People Like Us Something To Write About

by Eddie Roche


Ah, youth! Jaden Smith, the 17-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, gives another eye-raising interview to discuss. In GQ‘s November issue, he talks to staff writer Zach Baron, and it looks like we’ve got a Kanye West Jr. on our hands. Yay! A few highlights:

He’s kinda like Galileo! “People think you’re crazy—I feel like it’s an honor, actually, for people to think I’m crazy. Because they thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I’m saying? I don’t think I’m as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don’t think I’m not as revolutionary as Galileo.”

He’s a thinker! “Me and Willow are scientists, so everything for us is a scientific test upon humanity. And luckily we’re put in a position where we can affect large groups of human beings at one time… And that’s what I really encourage kids to do, is learn the things that you want to learn, because then not only will school become fun, but it will make your dreams come true.”

He’s also a total party pooper! “I rarely go to parties. My whole life is just dedicated on learning and breaking like, the craziest records of life, and being like one of the craziest human beings to ever exist. That’s me… I just want to teach people how to be comfortable. Stop being so scared.”

He’s going to party in Boston! “I’ll go to college. I want to set up office at MIT just so I can learn and bring in new technologies into the world.”

And he’s going to change the world! “No one will know where I am in ten years. They’ll see me pop up, but they’ll be like, ‘Where’d you come from?’ No one will know where I’m at. No on will know who I’m with. No one will know what I’m doing. I’ve been planning that since I was like 13… It’ll be kind of like Banksy. But in a different way. More of a social impact. Helping people. But through art installations…. You know what I’m saying? So I’m just dedicating my whole life to helping the world.”
