Jaden Smith, one of the world’s most quoted teens, is turning 18

Jaden Smith‘s tweets are scrawled around walls of safe rooms in the new PC video game Left 4 Dead 2. They read as if they actually were written by someone trying to live in the post-apocalyptic world. The fashion forward teen’s Twitter updates have been depicted as Jaden Smithisms and PC Gamer describes them as “tweets [that] often sound like they’re the collaboration of a conspiracy theorist, a spoiled teenager, and a first-year philosophy major.”

This writer leans toward the aphorism as an art form for a kid who knows when to use his platform for good, especially when he brings light to real subject matters like the 200+ schoolgirls who were kidnapped from the Chibok school in Nigeria in 2014.

The actor and model, who’s the only son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, is a millennial celebrity in his own right.

Here are a few of his quotable tweets:

“People Tell Me I’m An Old Soul, But I Will Be Young Forever”

“Currently Going Through Customs Even Though I Was Born On This Planet.”

“It’s Okay To Cry Guys.”

“I’ve Bin Drinking Distilled Water For So Long That When I Drink Normal Water It Feels Like I’m Swallowing Huge Chunks of Aluminum.”

“I Don’t Like To Tweet But The New Hunger Games is Literally Amazing.”

Smith’s approaching his 18th birthday on July 18, 2016. He’ll be old enough to vote in the next presidential election. During an interview last fall with Time, Smith commented that he would like to see a female president. “I would love for there to be a female president. It hasn’t happened, so that’s why it should happen. Once you get into office, you have lobbyists and you have a lot of different things where you’re not even making the decisions. It’s up to the corporations, or the Federal Reserve, or whoever’s giving the money to whoever needs the money. So at the end of the day, it’s going to be up to the lobbyists or the corporations for whatever they decide should happen. It would be a nice change. I’m not saying that everything would be better if that happened, but it would be cool,” he opined.
