Jaden Smith Says Being Born Is the Most Influential Thing He’s Done

Jaden Smith Isn't Not Galileo
Plus 9 other insights from 'GQ Magazine'

Clearly, Jaden Smith thinks that he’s God’s gift to earth.

The 17-year-old just continues to surprise us with what he has to say. After being selected for the second year in a row as one of Time’s Most Influential Teens, Smith reflected on his “accomplishments” thus far.

Being born was the most influential thing that’s ever happened to me, for myself. As far as people, what they think is influential — like I said, the thing that you can make the most fun of and laugh at the most is whatever would be the most influential to the pop culture of the world.

Why are we not at all surprised that he would say such a thing? Maybe because he’s known for saying such pretentious things about himself. He continued:

When they don’t understand something, they’re afraid of it, and if they don’t understand it, they don’t accept it or like it. There’s been so many things we don’t understand like Galileo saying the Earth is not the center of the universe, it’s actually the sun that we revolve around. Everybody thought that he was crazy! People didn’t understand the level of science that he was putting forth into society. You can’t blame these people that don’t understand.”

This isn’t even the first time that the outspoken teen has compared himself to Galileo. He also added that in 10 years he plans to “disappear” from the spotlight and help the world from an undisclosed location because his goal in life is to “heal the entire planet”. We wish you all the best on your future endeavors, Jaden.
