The multi-talented Smith-Pickett clan—comprised of superstars Jada Pickett Smith, Will Smith, and their children Jaden and Willow—has brought us some pretty awesome things. From hit music to Jada and Willow's meaningful talk show, The Red Couch, to Will Smith and Jaden Smith's movie magic to unforgettable fashion moments, the Smiths are a force in creating awesome and innovative content.
And, nobody does (or did) Twitter quite like Jaden Smith. While Jaden's Twitter feed might now be filled with news of his new album ERYS and his US tour, not long ago Jaden Smith was infamous for his sometimes comedic, sometimes philosophical, but always downright bizarre tweets. Scroll down to check out the 10 most bizarre Jaden Smith tweets you missed!
10 The Great Mystery of Our Time
On May 1st, 2013, 15-year-old Jaden Smith let us in on a great mystery. "How Can Mirrors Be Real If Our Eyes Aren't Real," Jaden Smith tweeted. This tweet quickly went viral and became one of Jaden Smith's most iconic Twitter moments. In 2018, he tweeted this cryptic message again, this time in Portuguese. Jaden let fans in on what he was trying to say in an interview with the HuffPost:
“This one comes from a study that a scientist was saying, that the way that the eyes perceive reality is not the way we actually see it,” he said. “So, like, we can only see three base colors, but there’s so much more on the electromagnetic spectrum of light that we could see, but our eyes are just not capable of seeing, which brought me to the realization that what we see on an everyday basis is not actually what’s there."
Thanks for clearing that up, Jaden!
9 Secrets of the Afterlife
The Biggest Flex Anyone Will Ever Have Is Dying.— Jaden (@jaden) September 4, 2015
"The Biggest Flex Anyone Will Ever Have Is Dying," Jaden tweeted in July of 2018. While many of Jaden's infamous tweets might be comedic, society's obsession with dead celebrities and appreciation of posthumous artists prompted Jaden's sober tweet.
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, that was a sad one,” he said. “But it’s true. Because when someone leaves, that’s when everybody starts to care about them.”
8 Happy 15th Birthday, Jaden!
"It's Your Birthday" Mateo Said. I Didn't Respond. "Are You Not Excited To Be 15" He Asked. Reading My Book I Uttered "I Turned 15 Long Ago"— Jaden (@jaden) July 9, 2013
Apparently, Jaden Smith wasn't super fazed by turning 15. The day after Jaden's 15th birthday, he had a very special birthday tweet for fans: "It's Your Birthday" Mateo Said. I Didn't Respond. "Are You Not Excited To Be 15" He Asked. Reading My Book I Uttered "I Turned 15 Long Ago," tweeted the young star.
Jaden either categorizes 24 hours as "long ago," and is so over Happy Birthday wishes, or being one of the most famous teens in the world means you've got a pretty high level of nonchalance.
7 Important PSA
There Is No Nutrients In Our Food Anymore Or In Our Soil OR IN OUR WATER.— Jaden (@jaden) October 10, 2013
Jaden had a pretty important PSA for fans regarding the quality of what we consume (although he seems a little bit more alarmed about our oceans here). "There Is No Nutrients In Our Food Anymore Or In Our Soil OR IN OUR WATER," Jaden tweeted in October of 2013.
It's probably worth pointing out here that Jaden's not totally wrong about sub-par modern-day fruits and veggies. A 2011 University of Texas at Austin study showed that soil depletion has caused vegetables grown now to be less rich in nutrients than crops grown decades ago. Still... eat your vegetables, Jaden!
6 New Year's Resolution
A lot Of My Tweets Will Come True In 2018— Jaden (@jaden) January 1, 2018
Jaden rang in the new year by sharing his predictions for the new year, "A lot Of My Tweets Will Come True In 2018," Jaden tweeted. “I’ve tweeted about a lot of things that have to do with myself musically or creatively or saying, ‘Oh here’s my plans or here’s what I’m gonna do.’ I’ve hinted at starting a vision clothing line. I’ve hinted at going on major tours,” he said. "I tweet things like, ‘One day you’ll all see The Vision! You know what I’m saying? I feel like that’s all been coming true in 2018, so that’s exactly what I was talking about. Music, the Vision, coming to fruition, and that’s what’s happening.”
Talk about manifesting! Is Jaden hoping to have similar results in 2019? Hopefully, with the New Year around the corner, we're all on the verge of finding out.
5 Someone Get Jaden a Shipping Container
I Need Someone To Fabricate A Shipping Container For Me— Jaden (@jaden) June 23, 2019
Jaden took a small break from advertising his newest album ERYS, to ask his fans for something very special. "I Need Someone To Fabricate A Shipping Container For Me," Jaden tweeted in June 2019.
Here's to hoping someone fabricated a shipping container, or that Jaden figured out his way to a UPS store!
4 Jaden is Not a Human
I Am Not A Human And I Don't Speak English— Jaden (@jaden) May 30, 2018
Although, Jaden Smith tweets, give interviews, reads scripts written in English, and appears to be a human being, Jaden professes that he neither speaks English nor is a human. "I Am Not A Human And I Don't Speak English," he tweeted.
According to Jaden, being a human is a construct. "This tweet is true!” he told HuffPost. “Because I’m not gonna be categorized as a human. Oh, humans are supposed to do this or act like this or people are supposed to act like this or people are supposed to be this. I’m my own thing. Don’t judge me off some standards that were made up before I was born. I’m doing my own thing.” No word yet on the English speaking thing.
3 A Sweet Message for Bae
Don't Worry Bae I'll Talk To You About SpaceTime Over FaceTime.— Jaden (@jaden) December 16, 2014
In 2014, 16-year-old Jaden had some clever wordplay to share with his fans. "Don't Worry Bae I'll Talk To You About SpaceTime Over FaceTime," he tweeted. Was he referring to the Space Time Continuum? A new spin-off of Space Jam? Unclear. It's worth mentioning, though, that in June of 2013 (6 months before Jaden tweeted about SpaceTime and FaceTime), he was snapped stepping out with Kylie Jenner. Could he be hoping to chat with Kylie about SpaceTime? Also unclear.
2 Jaden's Helpful Tip for Insomnia
That Moment When You Can't Sleep Soo You Start Doing Math.— Jaden (@jaden) April 6, 2015
What do you do when you can't fall asleep at night? Mindlessly scrolling through your phone, or lying awake willing yourself to fall asleep doesn't cut it for this young rapper. "That Moment When You Can't Sleep Soo You Start Doing Math," Jaden tweeted in 2015. Two years before that tweet, Jaden and father Will Smith delivered an insane interview about their love of physics, patterns, and equations, so we're pretty convinced Jaden sits down with math problems to fight insomnia!
