Jaden Smith Seems to Be Asking for Help

Lex Jurgen - June 24, 2015

Jaden Smith is troubled. Not the kind of troubled where you shoot up a bible study group. More the kind where you incorrectly quote Nietzsche and step off the roof of a Marie Callender's and survive with two broken legs. It's easy to mistake the ramblings of a teen boy with indulgent open marriage wealthy celebrity scientology parents as not traditional cuckoo, but the cracks are in the details. The desire to wear superhero costumes to formal functions -- definitely a crack:

I wore the Batman suit to heighten my experience at the wedding and [at] prom, which was fun. But also, at the wedding, I felt as though I needed to protect everyone there, and needed to have the proper gear to do so.

The heavy handed poetry and crystal religions and wearing dresses in public and making bad rap videos, that's all normal spoiled artistic family rich kid shit. This Batman bit is more James Holmes Joker level madness worthy of some blood work and a psych eval. Amanda Bynes had lit zero dogs on fire at seventeen. Just to cover our asses, let's all agree he seemed like a nice kid and we didn't see any signs.
