Young Money star Drake acknowledged Will Smith‘s movie star son Jaden Smith‘s ultimate bromance moment from last month’s MTV Video Music Awards with an ode-driven fashion decision over the weekend.
Drizzy Drake rocked an image of the meme-scattered shot of Jaden Smith from the VMAs on a sweatshirt during a live iHeart Music Las Vegas performance.
Before Justin Timberlake stole the show at Las Vegas’ annual music festival with a set that included two new songs off The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2, Drake warmed the crowd up by performing hits off both Take Care and Nothing Was the Same, which hits stores this Tuesday. But the biggest talking point of Drizzy’s performance: his outfit. The OVO/YMCMB star rocked a NWTS long-sleeved shirt which had Jaden Smith’s face (specifically the kid’s pause-worthy reaction to his MTV VMA’s performance) printed on the front. Can you imagine the f*ckery if this had been given away at the pop-up shops last Friday? (Miss Info TV)
Outside of the ode, Drizzy hit the stage performing a few notable big records.
Meanwhile, last night, Drake made it very clear that he wasn’t there to bring the mood down. He told the crowd, “They called me up and they said we need you to come tonight and switch the vibe up. I know you’ve been listening to great music all day but I came here for the party. So I don’t want nobody standing around looking like this is some ambient singing…no, we came to party tonight.” His set included “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, “All Me,” “Versace,” “Y.O.L.O” and “Started From the Bottom.” (Necole Bitchie)
Almost instantly, Smith’s VMAs moment turned into an Internet hit last month.
Of course Drake’s own performance of “Started From the Bottom” drew mixed reviews on Twitter and in the audience. While his sleepy rendition had us nodding off in front of the TV screen, Jaden Smith seemed to be having quite the moving experience as he listened to the object of Amanda Bynes’ affection-slash-hatred.
