Willow Smith on Lady Gaga: She's a free girl, baby

If you thought Will Smith was an international superstar, get ready for his daughter Willow. The 9-year-old has become a mini music sensation thanks to her infectious new single, "Whip My Hair."

In the buzzed about video, which premiered Monday, Willow sports a heart-shaped hairstyle and enters a silent, stark white lunchroom before shaking things up by releasing her braids, dipping them in paint, and well, whipping her hair back and forth.

She is also seen singing and rocking out in a variety of other outrageous 'dos, including cotton-candy-colored poufs and a mile-high fauxhawk.

The song, she says, is all about self-expression. “You can’t be afraid to be yourself...You have to be yourself and you can’t let anyone tell you that it’s wrong!”

No wonder she hopes to work with Lady Gaga someday. “She is amazing!" Willow said in an interview with Power 105.1 radio. "She’s just so amazing, she’s a free person. She’s a free girl, baby.”

    Well I guess we now who's genes won out with this kid. She act ghetto just like her momma ( I really do hope she's acting). The mind programming is what bothers me. Notice how the folks in the vid are pretty much zombies until she starts slinging paint on them with her hair. The message? You are not truly alive unless you buy into this garbage. Willow Smith is being used to program that message to young people. What a shame.

    These kids can't act and damn sure can't sing. Their parents have enough money to get them a video and a movie..that is it. The real talent won't be able to get a break in the business. Real talent without money won't be enjoyed.

      Sharlisa... sweetheart... wow. Maybe you should have spent less time ditching and more time in English class learning how to put a coherent thought together.

      1) I'm not sure how someone can comment "negativity" on a child....

      2) We are commenting on a news story on a news site, that is not bullying. Going up to her in person and telling her that her song blows would STILL not be bullying. She is putting herself out there, and people who put themselves out there are open to get feedback.

      3) I think she's a cute kid, but the song blows!

    Talented or not, most of the haters here probably won't do anything to change their lives and achieve the same success... perhaps it is because they have different sets of morals and guidelines for life. Personally, to hate on a celebrity on a message board isn't really saying much about oneself. Don't listen to it if you don't like it.

    Are American's really this brainless? Let me answer this question. Sadly YES. You gobble up and consume anything celebrity. Newsflash! They will gladly take your money and line their pockets and those of their agents. This isn't brilliance and talent, it's simple ole greed. The reason borderline retarded and talentless people get praised and accepted is because most Americans really just need to read a book already or stay in school. Willow is NOT the end all be all. If I had the publicity machine pointed at any random kid, I could make them a superstar. Please consume media more critically for once. I bet you all would save a lot more money. Money you could use on your family vs. This one that already has plenty of your money. And to the reject who brought race in to it...please do yourself a favor and shred that little dusty old race card you carry in your pocket. The longer you play it, the longer who perceive yourself as a victim. Victims are weak. Victims are powerless! In fact, you need to read 4 books. Total idiot!

    I caught Willo on one of those shows yesterday promoting her video. The video is cute for kids so great for that. She is a sweet little girl and if guided correctly she will make it either in hollywood or what ever she desires. I think her parents will make sure she is not taken advantage of. And so what if she got the air time, video and publicity because she has rich parents. Good for her. Lets just wait and see what happens. It's entertainment so enjoy it or don't watch or don't listen. However, her dad does has the real talent in the family. Hawthorne is the only thing I ever liked Jada in.

    Man there are alot of haters on this site.. I have seen comments about how her parents have enough money why do they need their kids to work too and they need to just let her be a kid. Well have ANY of you considered that maybe she wants to be a singer and that she went to her parents and said I want to do this? Maybe your 9 year old wants to play with dolls and do stupid shyt but that doesn mean that all kids do. Just because this 9 year old is going to make more money off one album then you will in your whole life does not mean that you need to put her down.

    People commenting here are so bitter and jealous. Be happy for this little girl because she's happy. You are all jumping to conclusions without all the info. Little kids usually want to be "famous" and follow in their parents footsteps, especially at a young age. I doubt the parents are "pushing" them into the spotlight, they are probably just encouraging them. If your kids were very talented singers or actors, I'm sure all of you would be excited and supportive (at least I hope so). Stop being envious and be happy for Willow.

    Sounds like an older voice for a 9yr old, is she really the one singing? It is a annoying song. Just because someone doesn't like the song doesn't mean they listen to country.

      I disagree on one point: I think will is a superb actor. But now I just want to boycott his films for not preventing this travesty of parenting. Jada (who I think can't act) should be a better influence on the kids, and advise them to NOT make role models out of tramps like (un)Lady(like) Gags.

      I'm always so astounded by how critical people are of people who are trying hard and doing well. If your father had a profitable business and groomed you to take his place, would you expect others to criticize that? Of course not. Besides, their parents (I won't use the offensive adjective you used to describe people you don't know) aren't buying the records and movie tickets. Your neighbors and their children are. So, while you sit around and hate on them, someone finds them entertaining; and, my friend, that's what they are - entertainers.

    Not to sound disrespectful, but let's get real, she got the record contract and the video recognition because dad is Will Smith and mom is Jada Pinkett-Smith. She wasn't discovered because she is a simply astounding 9-year-old singer with a talent beyond belief.

      It's not disrespectful at all. The question you need to ask yourself though is, if you had the power Will Smith has, would you help your child pursue his/her dreams? So Will got Willow a vocal coach and got Jaden an acting coach. There's not a parent here who wouldn't do everything in their "power" to help their son or daughter.

  59. u cant see me

    u white people r juss some stoopid hataz. if my child wuz 9 & that talented i would definitely try 2 pursue a career for he/she. going 2 school everyday & camp just sounds boring! there's already enough non-talented kids doing that. the song is dope (thats if u have any music sense). if u dont like the song keep listening 2 your folk country tunes that just talk about heartbreak & committing suicide. Willow is a Trendsetter, they're Super-talented family. Don't hate. Thx!

      It is pretty sad that there is always someone who starts a racist rant when on a blog. No where had anyone mentioned that she wasn' talented because she was African American, but you start a slanderous rant and degrade any White Americans saying that is why they do not like her. Newsflash, I am white and I love groups like Salt N-Pepa, Kool & the Gang, Prince, 2 Live Crew and I don't listen to country. Although it is nice to see that you immediately stereotype.

      Try having an intelligent discussion and keep race out of it since it isn't relevant anywhere in this blog.

      "Don't Hate"??? That's exactly what you're doing you racist twit. "Going to school every day is boring – there's enough kids doing that"??? Obviously you weren't one of them. The chances of achieving the level of success this girl and her family have are probably less than winning the lottery. You should not encourage kids to think this is the better way to go.

      Amazing you can tell the color of somebodys skin by their comments . And even making you more ignorant yet, calling chilidren going to school and camp boring and non talented. So when the nine year changes her mind every couple months on what she wants to be or is pushed into the entertainment world long before she should and ends up on drugs and burned out by 20, you wont think the non talented kids that stayed in school and are now doctors, lawyers, or whateveer they choose to be and making more and have a better life than the child you pushed into show business instead of pursuing an education that is stable and lasting were so non talented. Because I dont care who the kid is no child at age 9 knows what they want to be for the rest of their life and will actually end up there....

      So Diane, please clarify your own statement for me. And I quote "Amazing you can tell the color of somebodys skin by their comments." Are you kidding me? So because the original poster made racist comments, you felt it was your duty to do the same? In no way am I condoning what "u cant see me" posted. It definitely made no sense, and kind of hurt my head a little bit. But anyone can write a comment using ebonics. So no you can't tell the color of somebodys skin by their comments. So you can hang your head low, and walk away with your tail between your legs.

    Isn't anyone bothered by Will Smith using all his power and influence to shove his children into the spotlight? Many actors and movie stars are out there using their wealth and influence to better the world, but it seems the only thing the Smiths care about these days is the fame of their children. I'll bet anything that Willow will be the next Lindsay Lohan.

      Wow. Way to support the kid's ambition. Had you listed to the interview or read a story elsewhere, you'd know that she asked her parents if she could do music. After they discussed it, they said yes and then put her into vocal and piano lessons. It's their belief that if someone is going to do something, they should give it their all. I think that's a pretty important lesson to teach a child of any age.

    This whole family definitely is filled with talented members. Willow is no exception. The only concern I have is hearing the measure of vibrato she is using, is it's hard to determine how much is natural, especially with the use of the auto tuner. This is important, because at her age she should be careful not to over extend herself, vocally speaking. Hope they've got a voice teacher working with her. :)

      This child is not dressed appropriately. She looks like a little tramp. No nine year old should be dressed the way she is. and I say this about many little girls nowdays. The clothing you see on the racks in stores are very inappropriate. If the parents didnt allow them to dress that way they wouldnt selll. Everybody trying to make them go up way too quickly

      And while the lip rhinestones may not be 'suggestive' to some, they are still inappropriate for such a 'famous' 9 year old to be promoting. It's clearly a grown-up video, when she had the opportunity to appeal on a more wholesome level to kids her age.

      I'm with you on the annoying thing. Why is it that celebrities try to pass their kids off as talented? In 10 years, nobody will know who they are. Demi Moore is another one with Rumor. The only other thing thats even more annoying about celebrities is them thinking that they have anything meaningful to say about politics. We like you in the movies and television... thats it. Otherwise zip it and keep your kids where they belong.
