"I don’t think I’m as revolutionary as Ga­li­leo," Jaden Smith once told GQ. “But I don’t think I’m not as revolutionary as Galileo." We're not unsure what not to think, but according to a friend of Smith's who spoke to US Weekly, the 17-year-old will finally share more of his groundbreaking philosophical treatises with the American public by penning a series of essays. The source attests that the book will be full of "new takes on string theory and chaos theory, but more mystical." I know what you're all not thinking: It's about time we updated those theories. But critics, watch out. You might accidentally do Jaden a favor by not believing in him. "I feel like it's an honor, actually, for people to think I'm crazy," Smith told GQ. "They thought Galileo was crazy, too, you know what I'm saying?" As long as he doesn't start nailing things to church doors, we'll all be fine.
