Willow

Willow Smith of Whip My Hair fame (and Jada and Will are my mommy and daddy fame) has shaved her mohawk and is rocking a B-boy gender-bending look, and now the 11-year-old is back with this charming vid, I Am Me. She's clearly been receiving some voice training; her tone here is a warm vibrato that she's starting to make her own. I see a star in the making if things go right enough. She's quirky and individualistic for sure, which always appeals to me in humans. And oh my, she looks like her daddy here. Some people grouse that she's precocious and spoiled, that if they had her mama and daddy's money and contacts, they'd be famous too. To them I'd say, don't hate. The child is using her gifts. Why shouldn't she? Love this kid. 


Watch it full screen if you can.

  1. Oh, that's wonderful! Wow, she is so much bigger than when I saw her on Ellen performing Whip My Hair. I love her quirky look, and I love the message of this song.

    Thanks so much for sharing this, I hadn't heard it, and now I think it'll be my theme song for a while. I Am Me!

  2. I think she is just darling. People get so up in arms about celebrity children, but why shouldn't the apple fall far from the tree. Will and Jada are enormously talented. It's in the genes! Look at the entire Coppola family! Yes, it's who knows who, but it's also talent.

  3. If I had young daughters, I'd be perfectly okay with them listening to and loving her. Much more that I'd be with Niki Minaj and the others. She sounds sweet, as a great message, and while not my style, kudos to her for promoting such healthy messages.

  5. and isn't that what parents are supposed to do: work your ass of so your children can see their dreams happen easier for them than it was for you? We all have our struggles. She'll have hers, I'll have mine, you'll have yours. Loving what you do is loving what you do. xo

  6. I think I was deleted again...sigh...
    I was here! Leaving my footprint. I said something about Parents are supposed to work their asses off so their kids can achieve their goals or something along those lines.

  7. I've always loved this kid. She is so pretty and yes, I love the quirkiness in her. Thanks for reminding me to check her out every once in a while to see what she's up to. She's really talented.
