Jaden Smith is truly a character.
Over a year since Kim Kardashian West‘s wedding, and the teen is FINALLY revealing why he wore a white latex batsuit to the event, a look he later recycled for his high school’s prom.
In true Jaden fashion, the answer is mystical, bizarre, and exactly what you’d expect.
“I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun, but also at the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so. I’m just expressing how I feel inside, which is really no particular way because everyday it changes how I feel about the world and myself.
I like wearing super drapey things so I can feel as though I’m a superhero, but don’t have to necessarily wear super hero costumes everyday. My style icons are Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Superman and Kanye West.”
But wait, if you’re thinking the 16-year-old’s outfits are always super planned out, think again:
“First I roll over on the bed I built for myself and look at the ground. If there are clothes I wore from the previous day and they’re not too dirty, that’s what I put on.”
Yep, despite all of his weird musings, Jaden is still a teenage boy at heart.
Thanks for the insight, J!
