When he’s not deep in philosophical musings with Young Thug (presumably) or talking through his“divergent” ways of thinking, Jaden Smith keeps it simple — by being a “scientist” and building pyramids in his backyard. You know. Typical stuff.
“Me and Willow are scientists,” Jaden said in a new interview with GQ, “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.”
So, through being a social scientist and conducting his “scientific tests” upon his Twitter followers — and through Willow making her trippy “Wit A Indigo” video — the Smiths seem to keep creating, no matter what. Like Jaden building a 12.5-foot pyramid in his backyard, which he reportedly did with the approval of his parents, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith.
“It’s at my parents’ house. Half of a pyramid,” Jaden said. “The tip is missing, but the whole structural thing is built, and it sits at 12.5 feet tall. I’ll Instagram a picture of it once this comes out, so people know what I’m talking about.”
Jaden’s long-term plans, though, are a bit more mysterious than posting a photo of his Giza-inspired geometric project on social media. When asked where he’ll be 10 years from now, he responded very simply with a word: “Gone.”
“No one will know where I am in ten years,” he said. “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.”
So, like —
“It’ll be kind of like Banksy. But in a different way. More of a social impact. Helping people. But through art installations.”
Well, OK then. We’ll be waiting, or maybe we won’t be… No, of course we will be. We’ll always be waiting for Jaden Smith.
