Jaden Smith has made headlines before for his bizarre statements, but this latest one has got to take the cake!

In a new interview with men’s mag GQ, the 17-year-old son of Will Smith revealed that not only did he build much of the furniture inside his own bedroom, he's even extended his talents outside of the house by creating a pyramid in the backyard.

“It’s at my parents’ house. Half of a pyramid,” he told the magazine.

“The tip is missing, but the whole structural thing is built, and it sits at 12.5 feet tall.”

According to the multi-talented teen, his pyramid is modelled on the famous Giza structure, and his parents Will and Jada had no issues with their son getting creative on their lawn.

“They always told us to, like, be and do whatever we want,” Jaden said.

Jaden and his younger sister Willow aren’t shy about sharing their views on everything from philosophy to the English language, but their quotes have raised eyebrows before. In an interview with The New York Times last year, the celebrity siblings seemed to imply they didn’t experience time the same way as everyone else.

“I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist,” Willow told the publication.

“It's proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It's relative to beings and other places,” Jaden added.

However, in his GQ interview last month Jaden seemed to poke fun at his image in the media, describing himself and his sister as scientists conducting tests on “humanity”.

“It’s the best thing. People think you’re crazy – I feel like it’s an honour, actually, for people to think I’m crazy. Because they thought Galileo was crazy too, you know what I’m saying?” he revealed.

“I don’t think I’m as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don’t think I’m not as revolutionary as Galileo.”
