Once, I was startled when a man showed up on a date wearing a bow tie, so I can only imagine what went through Kylie Jenner's mind when boyfriend Jaden Smith showed up for their date ... in an Iron Man outfit. Jaden was completely incognito in the signature red and tan superhero duds as he and Kylie had dinner at Nobu 57 in New York. Seriously, they let him in there in that thing? How'd you like to be noshing sushi across from that?
Sooooo ... Jaden is 14. I'll cut him some slack. Kylie, at 15, is the "older woman." And if she wants to put up with a guy who shows up to dinner in a superhero outfit ... well, that's what you get for dating a 14-year-old.
But can I just say? This doesn't bode well for Jaden's maturity level. Kylie looked cute in a leopard print dress and black booties -- and her boyfriend was in a superhero mask. Is there a future here? How will he handle a mortgage? If he starts dressing up like that gecko from the Geico commercials, she should make him clean his room.
I mean, it could be worse. He could have dressed up as Aqua Girl. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
But in a world where kids are so eager to grow up fast, maybe Jaden should be commended for still being a big kid. Still being that kid who loves a good costume, even if it's not Halloween. I repeat: Jaden is only 14. I'm hoping that he and Kylie aren't, you know, dating dating, and are just sort of "hanging out" as the kids say now. And I'm glad Kylie isn't "hanging out" with some 38-year-old mogul. Though at 15, that would be highly illegal.
Anyway, this just seems like a fun kids' day out -- they even had friends with them -- and it's nice to see teens doing something besides causing trouble on Twitter. But, Jaden, take off the outfit for prom, okay?
What do you think of Jaden's costume?
