First off, I’d like to thank the universe for giving me an opportunity to write that headline. Is it a clever one? No. Is it particularly insightful? No. But is it the single most excellent thing to happen to celebrity teenagers and romance in months? Oh, oh yes. Yes it is, because Jaden Smith wearing an Iron Man costume while on a date with Kylie Jenner is absurdly excellent and exactly the kind of thing I would do if I were richer-than-god 14-year-old whose father is the Fresh Prince of the entire world.
While shopping in Times Square and having lunch at Nobu Restaurant with Jenner, Smith apparently wore the outfit above at first, then climbed into their fancy car, changed and came out like…this.
I just…I don’t know. I do not know. Is this something we all wanted to do at 14? I don’t remember. But now I kind of wish I had dressed in costumes on all the dates of my early teens.
Maybe this is just a reminder that, despite being one of the wealthiest and most famous teens in the world, Jaden Smith is still just a kid. Or that his life is just entirely absurd. I seriously cannot choose. To be fair, Times Square undoubtedly has older, weirder people dressed in superhero costumes.
I MEAN REALLY WHAT IS GOING ON HERE.
