Jaden Smith has finally addressed the Batman costume he wore to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's wedding and to prom. In a recent interview with GQ, the young actor and rapper talked about his past and current style choices—and it was, as you'd expect a Jaden interview to be, full of quotables. 

When asked about his Batman suits, he said he wore them to "heighten my experience at the wedding and prom which was fun."

But here's where it gets better. According to young Jaden Smith, he rocked the white Batman suit to KimYe's wedding because of security reasons. "At the wedding I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there and needed to have the proper gear to do so." 

It makes perfect sense then that his style icons are Batman, Robin, Nightwing, Superman, and Kanye.
