Jaden Smith: "it's an honor for people to think I'm crazy"

Jaden Smith plans to go off the grid so no one will be able to find him, yet he plans to "bring in new technologies into the world."

He rarely goes to parties, yet he is able to "affect large groups of human beings at one time."

"I feel like it’s an honor, actually, for people to think I’m crazy," the son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith said in a wide ranging interview with GQ magazine. "They thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know?"

The famed astronomer got crossways with the Catholic Church for holding to his belief that the earth revolved around sun and was declared guilty of heresy in 1633. Jaden, 17, constructed a pyramid and attends a"mystery school" with his sister, Willow, he tells the magazine.
