Is Jaden Smith The New Kanye?
"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."
Is Jaden Smith trying to out-Kanye Kanye? Mr. West, with his impromptu presidential bids and delusions of grandeur, is the reigning king of egocentric and eccentric celebs, but Jaden is coming for the crown. The actor/rapper/teenage philosopher recently sat down with GQ magazine for an interview and photoshoot, and it was a revelation, to say the least. Here are 8 of the strangest things we learned from Jaden's GQ feature.
1. He considers himself (and his sister Willow) scientists.
"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."
2. He finds it funny to mess with people.
"It's fun, bro. That's what a lot of people don't realize. It's fun. It's so much fun. It's the best thing. 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."
3. He likes to make things - like clothes and pyramids. Yes, pyramids.
"Like, the clothes I'm wearing right now, done it on my own. I built my own bed, I built my own closet, um, I built two closets, I built four beds, I built, um, one pyramid."
4. He wants to break every "record of life."
"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."
5. He wants to go to school everywhere.
"I'll go to open schools, eventually, when I'm like 25 or something. Multiple schools. At the same time, around the world. So, like, two in the United States, two in Europe, two in China, India, Russia, Africa, all at the same time.:
6. He's planning on disappearing.
"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. No one will know where I'm at. No one will know who I'm with. No one will know what I'm doing. I've been planning that since I was like 13."
7. He wants to help the entire world through art.
“It'll be kind of like Banksy. But in a different way. More of a social impact. Helping people. But through art installations. It'll be like, 'This just happened that helped a bunch of people over here. We don't know who did it, but these symbols and things were left around, so we can only guess that it's Jaden and the squad.' You know what I'm saying? So I'm just dedicating my whole life to helping the world."
