Jaden Smith has already done many things for this planet in just 17 years. (Well, his body is 17. The spirit that inhabits his human shell is a 500,000-year-old alien who came to earth, wandered through the land we call Mexico and died, leaving his corpse behind, which later turned into a peyote cactus. True story.) Jaden Smith made the world a more enlightened place by being born. Jaden Smith has opened up our minds with thoughts like, “How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren’t Real.” And Jaden Smith has shown the youngins’ that there’s nothing wrong with a boy in a dress. But Jaden has much bigger plans for this planet. Jaden wants to fix it. “Fix it, Jaden” is the new “Fix it, Jesus.”
Jaden did an interview with British GQ and it is giving me slight shades of “shit Kanye West would say if Kanye West was a Scientologist.” Jaden talked about practically being attached at the brain with his sister Willow Smith and how he’s genderless when it comes to clothes. Jaden also brain burped up his idea of a utopia:
On his relationship with his 15-year-old sister Willow:
“I’d say it’s like full-on sibling brain connection. I’d say that she’s definitely the female version of me, one hundred per cent, in every single way. And I’d say I’m the male version of her.”
On how he only sees scared people and not-so-scared people:
“I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms. I feel like people don’t really get it. I’m not saying that I get it, I’m just saying that I’ve never seen any distinction. I don’t see man clothes and woman clothes, I just see scared people and comfortable people.”
On how he hangs out with the Kartrashians and how those hollow mannequins are better because of it: “I think I’m just a really big influence on anybody that I’m around, and I feel like that’s why it’s good for me to hang out with all types of different people.”
On creating a perfect world: “I’m really working towards just fixing the whole planet Earth. I really just want to create a utopia on this planet. I really want to make it so that people don’t have to die to pay bills and just work to survive. So that they can work to actually live and do the things that they love to do.”
So, let’s see. Jaden Smith’s utopia is a wonderful place where the stress of paying bills doesn’t weigh you down and you can pretty much do whatever you want and love. Um, yeah. That utopia already exists. It’s called being Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s child. If Will and Jada want to e-mail me some adoption papers and overnight a limitless AMEX card, I’ll gladly join Jaden’s utopia!
And here’s our future utopian leader in British GQ and at the NYC premiere of Allegiant last night.
