Jaden Smith Wears Batman Costume To "Protect" People, But His Real Superpowers Lie Elsewhere — PHOTOS
Was Jaden Smith to the rescue at Kimye's wedding? Not quite, but at least he was prepared for the occasion if saving anyone was necessary. In the midst of the many articles written and photos posted about the nuptials between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, you're forgiven if you forgot that Smith's outfit for the wedding was a little untraditional, to say the least. Jaden Smith wore a Batman suit at the Kimye wedding and in an interview over a year later, he's explained that it was a matter of protection.
The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith revealed the thought process behind the outfit to GQ, saying,
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.
While Smith's motives might have been admirable, what he does not seem to realize is that the suit was entirely unnecessary for his superhero agenda. Let's be serious, this whole interview is a reminder that actor-singer's real superhuman power lies in his words — no suit needed! When faced with villainy, all Smith would need to do is drop his philosophical wisdom in order to make the villain think twice about harming anyone at the Kimye wedding, or prom, or anywhere else, really. Or at least make the villain scratch his head enough in confusion in order to leave enough time for everyone to get away. The evidence is in Smith's best quotes and tweets.
On Experiencing Time
"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. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in," he said in a much-buzzed T magazine interview.
On The Important Things
On Voices In Your Head
"There’s a theoretical physicist inside all of our minds, and you can talk and talk, but it’s living," he said in the T magazine interview.
On Imprinting Himself
"What’s your job, what’s your career? Nah, I am. I’m going to imprint myself on everything in this world," he said to the T magazine.
The Cold, Hard Truth
On Improving The World
"Everything that I talk about in my music is pretty much just trying to evolve consciousness in the world and help everything become better and brighter. I've never written out my lyrics before, I just go in and freestyle and say what's on the top of my mind," he said to Billboard.
On His Einstein Uniform
"Einstein didn't really like to change clothes because he had too much other stuff to worry about and I'm the same. All black is pretty much my go-to look. If somebody is just wearing something for the blogs, that's really sad because they're not living for themselves, versus someone wearing a kimono who's having an awesome time. I really look to see, do you care more about what other people think, or are you having fun?" he dished to Billboard.
On Perpetual Youth
On Two Sides
"I want to hit the polarities of life, show people that there's a duality; there's two sides to everything," he told Billboard.
So there you have it. Superhuman powers in the form of words. Never change, Jaden.
