Jaden Smith has managed to grab the spotlight yet again. He has finally confirmed the claims that he’s dating rapper Tyler, the Creator.
“Tyler doesn’t want to say but Tyler’s my m—-f—ing boyfriend,” he said in the viral video, adding to cheers for the crowd: “And he’s been my m—-f—ing boyfriend my whole f**king life.”
Also, Tyler was seen in the video laughing and shaking his head. He later replied to Smith’s tweet with a message that read: “Hahaha you a crazy n—a man.”
Jaden Smith also said that “I recently said that Tyler, the Creator is my boyfriend, and that’s true. So, just so you know.”
However, it is not clear if the par is dating or Smith was poking fun at speculation surrounding Tyler’s sexuality. In his back catalog, he was heavily criticized for his use of the word “faggot.”
Smith has also been relatively open about discussions of sexuality and is known for his androgynous fashion style.
Also, there is actually trouble believing whatever Smith is saying because he has built his public profile on saying nonsense in public in such a way where you’re not really sure if he believes it or he’s just attempting to troll the world.
At 16, he entered the public consciousness at large by declaring he could control time and he wanted “to be the craziest of all time” in an interview with T magazine. This is also the same guy who, more recently, claimed to have once, temporarily, been a vampire.
Tyler attracted criticism early in his career. He peppered his lyrics with homophobia
There are complicated dynamics at play. Of course, absent of any evidence that this is anything but a troll job, it’s also been derided as queer-bating. We are still to get solid confirmation on this news.
