Jaden Smith raises a lot of eyebrows with his bold fashion choices, and his love of skirts even landed him a gig as the new face of Louis Vuitton womenswear. But how does the young star's dad Will Smith feel about his unconventional style? In a word: proud.
In a recent interview with BBC's 1 Xtra, Smith joked that he and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith "might have [made] a mistake, we may have gone too far," in raising Jaden, but then quickly got serious about how he feels.
"You have to be comfortable doing things that you could fail [at]," Will said. "Jaden is 100 percent fearless, he will do anything. As a parent it's scary, it's really terrifying, but he is completely willing to live and die by his artistic decisions and he doesn't concern himself with what people think."
He added that while the rules are a little different for his sister Willow, because she's a teenage girl, he and Jada have tried to ensure she has as much freedom as her older brothers (including Smith's son from a previous marriage Trey).
With that kind of support at home, we can understand why Jaden doesn't care what anyone thinks.
