Jaden Smith is the Internet’s favourite philosopher. The same brain that gave us “How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren’t Real” and “Dying Is MainStream #MONEY” recently sat down with GQ and talked oatmeal, building pyramids and what he wants to be when he grows up. Here are our favourite Jadenisms from the interview.
On Being Crazy
“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.”
On Rarely Going To Parties
“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.”
On Dying At The End Of His Life
“There’s no end of the process, life is a process. At the end of the process, hopefully I’ll be dead, you know. Hopefully I just won’t be alive anymore. But I won’t. Because that’s when the process will end. It’s an ongoing journey that you’ll never reach the end of.”
On Where He’ll Be In 10 Years
“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.”
On Saying Goodbye
“What do I want to say right now? Love yourself. And watch.”
