Hollywood, CA, United States (4E) – Jaden Smith has once again opened up about his thoughts and this time it is regarding fashion as he thinks that people should be allowed to wear whatever they want regardless of what gender they are..
The son of Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith covered the latest issue of British GQ Style magazine and he shared that he regularly wears a long skirt over his skin-tight trousers noting that he is very free with his fashion statements and choices. He models skirts for Louis Vuitton and even wore a Batman costume to prom in the past.
The 17-year-old continued to say that he does not understand why people have to follow a certain rule when it comes to wearing clothes. He also insisted that people should experiment with all styles they think best fit them.
He shared, “I feel like people are kind of confused about gender norms. I feel like people don't really get it. I'm not saying that I get it, I'm just saying that I've never seen any distinction. I don't see man clothes and woman clothes, I just see scared people and comfortable people.”
Just recently, Jaden has been selected by Karl Lagerfeld to be one of the new Chanel ambassadors.
In a recent interview with Jaden’s father, Will recently said that his son has a powerful internal quality as an artist and that they encourage him to be that kind of person. He added, “You gotta get out on the edge, you have to try things, you have to be comfortable doing things that people don't agree with, and you have to be comfortable doing things that you could fail.”
Aside from talking about fashion, Jaden also discussed his plans of saving the planet. He has talked about this in the past but he detailed more about his future plans.
Jaden shared that he wants to create a utopia on this planet and would really want to achieve that so that people will not have to “die to pay bills and just work to survive.” He added, “So that they can work to actually live and do the things that they love to do.”
