While Miley Cyrus went white and sheer for her performance at iHeart Radio Music Festival this weekend, Drake took his performance wardrobe in the opposite direction. Drizzy took the stage in a long-sleeve black OVO t-shirt that was emblazoned with a graphic version of Jaden Smith’s face. Normally, it may seem strange to find a grown man wearing a teenager’s face on his shirt, but this shirt and Jaden’s face have a backstory.
The scene is the 2013 VMAs. Drake has just finished performing “Hold On We’re Going Home” and “Started From The Bottom,” and the camera pans to the Smith family. Jaden obviously enjoyed the performance: he raised his hands to his face and began worshipping at the altar of Drizzy. Drake, who has also been turned into a meme shirt, didn’t give away the Jaden shirt at his one day Nothing Was The Same pop-up shop, but maybe, if we’re lucky, it’ll be for sale on the OVO site soon. Jaden Smith has a pretty cool life for a 15-year-old, TBH. He deserves to get his hands on one of these shirts.
