Jaden Smith Is Becoming A “Full-Time Inventor” To Save The Homeless And Waterless People Of The World
Jaden Smith‘s interview with Complex is… complex. On the one hand it’s like, this kid is so out of touch and rich; like the way he’s just genuinely fascinated by the plight of the lower-class it’s like watching Ariel brush her hair with a fork. But on the other hand, that genuine fascination leads to him to trying to do some good.
While speaking with Complex, Jaden talked about it all–his new water filtration systems, his music–and most importantly, he revealed that he is switching his profession. I wasn’t sure he had a specific profession because he seemed to be a rich kid who just acts and makes music at a whim. But no, he’s saying people used to think of him as a musician, but he now wants them to see him as an inventor. Mini Kanye speaks!
Jaden talked a lot about this water filtration system he helped create for Flint, Michigan, as part of a greater plan of his to bring clean water to Africa:
“I had a meeting with the One World Vision Board, and we were talking about filtration systems. I was like, ‘Yo, let’s make a filtration system and let’s put it in Africa in places where they have water but it’s just not clean. Let’s put a filtration system in Africa and let’s provide for an entire village. Then let’s get that village portable solar panels, and let’s keep doing that to different places in Africa and keep going and going.’“
And that’s not his only lofty goal, he also wants to feed all the homeless people with vegan delights:
“I want these people to be healthy and I want them to have a long lasting life. And if I’m over here sitting with my parents eating vegan food… I mean, that’s where it all came from: the chef that did the I Love You restaurant, that cooked all that, and organized it, is the family chef. I wanted homeless people to eat the same thing that I eat at a table with my mom, my dad, and my sister… And my goal is to eventually open up a permanent restaurant that gives away food seven days a week.”
Yup the super rich kid wanted to gift the poors vegan food from his own private chef in a food truck. Novel idea–no wonder this kid is going to become an “inventor”. That’s what inventors do, right? Leonardo Da Vinci just did his own social-justice versions of things that already existed?
“I want the world to know that I’m switching professions and that I’m becoming a full-time inventor and that I’m going to spend all of my time inventing new technologies because I think I’m better at that than making music… I’m still going to make music because I invent new songs. I invent new songs, I invent new ways to make music. But I’m not a musician. I’m an inventor. And Elon Musk is my idol and I’m not gonna stop until I’m like Elon Musk.”
Elon Musk? Remember when he was going to save those Thai kids in a cave with an escape pod submarine? Remember how he was undone by Azealia Banks? But idolize him, I guess. Although to be honest you already are exactly like Elon Musk: Jaden Smith seems exactly like the kind of person who would say something like: “You know how we save those kids in the cave filled with water? Submarine escape pods,” while hitting a bong rip.
