Jaden Smith Doesn’t Want You To Get It

It turns out Jaden Smith is playing us all. Who’s winning or losing? Definitely Jaden. The game he likes to play starts out with him dropping some Jaden-isms for the public, kinda like this.

“Me and my sister started this initiative called Mystery School. It dates back to like ancient Egypt, ancient Greece—like Plato, Pythagoras, all these students had mystery schools. And what they learned in there was sacred. They would learn the math and sciences of that generation, and then they would build the cities and give that energy and that knowledge to the other people. And a lot of stuff they would keep really, really to themselves. Like, you couldn’t say the word dodecahedron, which is just a shape, outside of one of the mystery schools or they would, like, kill you or whatever. Because it was such a sacred shape.”

And then he sits back and watches everyone get all confused by the lotta strangeness he’s laying down, for kicks or whatever. Honestly, considering most kids thrown into fame too early end up on crack or worse, I commend this wacky kid for having the wisdom and sense of humor to have a good time instead, even if he does seem to be jonesing his own town drinking his own Kool-Aid.

“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.”

On top of screwing with people for fun, he’s not just your average insanely rich kid laying passively in piles of his parents’ money. Jaden’s into everything. Whether it’s studying 70’s New York City for his role as a graffiti artist in Baz Luhrmann’s new Netflix show The Get Down, sitting in on classes at MIT, designing his own clothes, or building goddamn pyramids for fun, this kid is unapologetically out there. He’s gonna chase his interests, and if you don’t get it, all the better in his book.

While you gotta be real, and realize that this kid has opportunities 99.9999999% of kids on Earth could never imagine, you can’t say he’s not using his insane privilege and wealth in a pretty cool way.

“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.”

You do you. If you ask him where he sees himself in ten years: the kid’s answer is, of course, classic Jaden Smith.

“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.”

I’m so excited to experience his adventures. I am honestly stoked as hell.

“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.”

Nice. Keep it weird Jaden. I hope you reach every single weird goal you got. Instead of blowing your trust fund on coke and strippers, you’re gonna use it to confuse people and explore the universe. #Respect.
