Willow Smith may remake 'Parents Just Don't Understand'

Like father, like daughter? Willow Smith might possibly be looking to follow in her superstar fathers’ musical footsteps.

Billboard reports that the pint-sized fashionista and siren behind the hit “Whip My Hair” sat down in an interview with Yahoo Music to discuss her single, working with Jay-Z and whether or not she will remake her father’s classic track, “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”

In response to the latter, Willow admitted that she’s open to tackling Daddy’s 1988 rap classic.

“There’s a possibility,” Willow told Yahoo Music. “There is a possibility that I will. It’s a really great song.”

While her confident and lively demeanor seems to be far beyond her years, 9 year-old Willow had no problem discussing her anxiety when working with her Roc Nation boss and superstar rapper, Jay-Z.

“He’s Jay-Z! He’s sold like over…I don’t even know how many albums he’s sold,” she said about their first meeting. “I was nervous because what if he said, ‘Willow why do you want to sing?’ And I’m like, ‘Because I want to sing.’ He’s going to be like, ‘Umm, OK.’ I was really nervous.”

Nerves aside, Willow said that the boss is very supportive of her work. “When I have an idea and I express it to him he doesn’t say, ‘Oh that’s bad, I don’t like that.’ He tries to make it better.”

Willow also shed light on the fact the fans can expect some Smith family collaborations in the future, but like info on her forthcoming singles, she has to keep a tight lip.

What do you think? Should Willow remake Will’s song?

    Thank you for some intelligent programing that does not just focus on the negative things in Jim's life and artistry. The Doors deserve to also be taken seriously as creative, talented artists. I do remember the 60's. The Doors were and still are my absolute favorite. They did great things beyond just Light My Fire. Appreciate you developing this project.

    Get off her page if you don't like her go to Taylor Swift and talk about all the men she hump and then write songs about better yet go to school. The Smith kids r very talented and some people are jealous because there not. Go watch the little pagent contests on tv because they exploit their 2-6 year olds on stage all the time and who complains.

    YOU are MISERABLE because at 9 years old, Willow has made more $$$$$ than you can EVER dream of making in a LIFETIME!! YOU will work until YOU retire and then YOU might be able to get back some of the SOCIAL SECURITY you paid into the system!!

    I am proud of her and I'm not her PARENT. I only WISH that I could be comfortable knowing that MY child would be financially secure when SHE is grown.

    If these comments indicate the scrutiny that a nine year old is going to be under(and the level of cruelty that has to be endured under the public eye) I think her parents have made a grave mistake no matter what level of talent the child has. Give the kid a chance at her own persona before you feed her to wolves of the entertainment industry.

    Count me in as someone who needs to see less of this CHILD. Good God, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, please take your child back home where she can go to school, play with her toys and swing on a swingset. That is what a 9 year old should be doing. NOT making music videos and the like. I don't care if she has as much talent as every single singer or actress on the planet, she shouldn't be doing these things. Will and Jada should be ashamed of themselves. Go make your own money and fame and stop pushing your children to do this crap. Oh, and before someone tell me "Willow WANTED to do music.", kids say they want things all the time. I guarantee no child wants to grow up a child star in Hollywood. Most of them end up drug addicts or worse.
    I used to love Will Smith back in the day but he's been doing some shady stuff since he became a $cientologist.

    I have to agree with Evel! I just thought the singing in Whip My Hair was bad but I saw her "dance" to it and it was even worse. Very stilted and stiff. Let this little girl grow up and try a singing career again in about 5 years. In the meantime, get her some singing and dancing lessons so that she is prepared to perform when she tries again.

  21. sad people say mean things

    having finally read the whole thing, some of you people should be ashamed of yourselves. she is a beautiful young girl, and she may or may not have talent, but there is no need for cruel, pointless meanness. her parents are fair targets, and i do think they should not be pimping out their kids at such young ages, whether or not the kids want to do it (hello: you're the parent! is the word 'no' not in your vocabulary? try this "when you turn 18, you can decide."). to them, i say that you are overexposing your children and denying them their childhoods and that is sad. hopefully your money can buy them lots of therapy,

    Ug that single is the worst thing i have ever heard. Classic case of someone only being where they are because of their parents. If her parents were anyone else in the world she would have been laughed out of the talent agency. Will you better get used to buying the rights to movies and songs for your kids cause they have made it pretty obvious they dont have any creative talent of their own. And btw nice job whoring your 9 year old out there big guy, a real pillar for the african american community...

    So what that she came from two talented and successful parents. For crying out loud she's a 9yr old who is not afraid to show people her talent. I like her song and I hope she stays in the music business. Michael J (RIP) was only 5 when he started singing. There's also Miley Cirus and Justin Bieber who are young upstarts whose music is liked by their peers. Is anyone complaining about them? If Willow were white would she get so much criticizm? I think not. The whole Smith Family is loving all their millions right to the bank regardless of who likes them or not. So why not let Willow make music that her peers can appreciate and just leave her alone.

    @Daswassup, you will be happy to know that an Independence Day 2 & 3 are currently in the works, so obviously Mr. Smith hasn't stopped acting you effin idiot
    To whoever it was that called Jada a gold digger, you are a moron. Jada may not make as much money as well, but she does pretty well on her own. She has her own series (Hawthorne), she was one of the voices in the Madagascar movies and she has other projects in the works.

    My god people, why do you feel the need to be so harsh. Although I may not care for the song, I think she is tremendously talented. Did you see her on the Ellen Degeneres show? Do any of you know how much talent it takes to be able to both sing & dance at the same time? Her target audience are young teens. I think the song is very catchy for that type of audience. Those of you that say she only got signed becasue of who her parents are. Being singed & selling CD's are 2 different things. If she is selling CD's then obviously a lot of people beg to differ with you regarding her talent! I hope she re-does dad's song. I love the Smith family and think thay are one of the few Hollywood success stories. The rest of you are just jealous because you never made it as an entertainer or musician.

    "Bravo" to the Smith family! As I look at the many post about Willow, I am absolutely stunned at the negativity. There are so many positive things with the Smith Family. First of all Will and Jada are married and have been for over 10 years. Not many people can say that, whether they are a celebrity or not. Two, Will is a GREAT Father and provides for his family. He is not an absent Father and if he is able to assist anyway in his chilren's career what is the tragedy in doing so. Three, Will makes enough money to support his family and Jada or the children do not have to work, they have expressed an interest in either acting or singing and as a parent Will is helping to cultivate that talent. My Mother always told me if you do not have anything nice or positive to say then to keep it to yourself. Willow, you keep whipping your hair back and forth........Jada and Will .....continue to love each other, and guide your children's careers while protecting them at all cost. I love to see a successful family and the Smith Family is truly an inspiration.

    Is she talking about remaking this song in seven or eight years when she is old enough to drive? (Remember, one part of this song involves him driving his parents' car.) This song is a classic because it put DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince on the map and it was something teenagers could relate to, even if their parents didn't have a brand new Porsche. I don't think that Willow or anyone else should remake this song. A few years ago, a band called A Perfect Circle remade the classic John Lennon song "Imagine." It was HORRIBLE!! Some songs (like some movies) should be left alone.

    Whomever claimed that Will Smith "lost his black card" really should stop responding. PJDU was a phenomenal rap hit and it is still considered a classic– Just as are "Summertime" & "Brand New Funk". If you don't like the guy, or his kid-say that. If you are jealous of this little girl's privilege-say that. But, DON'T pretend to be an authority on blackness and who's got it's card or not. Ask Will Smith how Black he is in Mississippi. If the poster was Black, you set us back 60 years. IF white... It makes sense that you have a clue what the hell you're talking about!

    Should willow remake the song,I don't think but however she is talented! Jay-z knows what he is doing. He's a business man. And to anyone who says will smith is not talented he has went gold and platinum. How many people can say they did that! I think will smith made he's presence known in hip hop.and he also became an actor a great actor! His wife is a pretty good actor as well as his son to say that the smiths are not talented is a lie! Box offices and albums sold prove that!

    I am appalled at all the NEGATIVE comments. So what – you don't like the song; you don't have to listen and you certainly don't have to purchase one. Willow is pursuing HER dreams and both PARENTS support her.

    Yes, it helps that her parents are Will and Jada. As parents, it is your DUTY to support your child's dreams. Shame on Will and Jada for doing their JOB!!!!!!!!!!

    That's show business!! Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Sofia Coppola, Liza Minnelli, Paris Hilton...all have "connected" family members. Did they get their BREAK on their TALENT??

    She is a 9 year old little girl who is still developing. Give Willow a break!!!!

    Well, I have to tell you that she is not even going to be a one-hit-wonder, because her only song about her hair had to be the worst song I have ever heard in my entire life. I am even a DJ, and got booed when I played her song at a high school dance. I am really surprised that Will thought that that song had any potential at all. Even our radio stations won't play it. Let her grow up a bit, and then try again. Maybe when she turns into a teen. Let her be a kid and not get sucked into the lime light like all actors and actresses want of their kids.

    The sad difference between Willow and other children her age is that instead of having cruel things being said to her by some bully at school when she performs a school talent show, she has cruel things said about her by adults who have nothing better to do than try to squash the dreams of a child. You keep saying her parents should remember she's a child... So should you!
    At least this way she's getting paid. Her song encourages kids to be themselves and during a period in time where so much of the music is full of negative material, I am relieved to have a positive song for my daughter to listen and dance to. It's a sad day when grown ups get together to pick on a little girl, I don't care who her parents are. Why does this burn you so bad you have to spew out hatred?

    Willow seems to be enjoying her art and making music and that is what is important. No one can say that Will and Jada are "using" her to fulfill their failed dreams as BOTH of them had their own dreams come true beyond their wildest dreams according to both of them. If her music is kid-friendly and appropriate, more power to her! Many of those who insult her wouldn't dream of insulting Bieber, another kid star, (I personally do not like his music.) Though WIllow's target audience is kids, I actually like her song "Whip My Hair."

    The important thing is that she still has a sense of childhood, which thus far it appears that she does. It is great that she is able to express her individuality and things that she likes as opposed to being a girl then a woman doing everything to please males or other women and then "awakes" or "finds" herself at darn near 50 years old...which is very common. Girls and women need to have a sense of themselves and be able to fully express themselves. As long as she continues to be happy and healthy, I think what she creates is great.

Here is a family that truly knows how to be a family and also do what they do best. They are a true testament to the American dream and to the true spirit of what Hollywood should be: Good entertainment. Way to go, Willow. You should be proud of yourself.

If you had the chance to do it, i bet u would in a minute.

I know a whole bunch of 9 year olds hell adults for that matter that don't speak in the manner as Willow when she opens her mouth.

    It's puzzling to read all of these negative comments. If some of you paid attention to interviews as much as you chat on blogs maybe you would know a little something and wouldn't let so many dumb remarks exit your mouth. Will and Jada have both said that they have never pushed their children to be like them. However, they encourage them to follow their own dreams and whatever they are, they will support them. Will also stated that he tried to talk his son Jaden out of doing movies by telling him how much work goes into it (Just get the Oprah interview). As for the negative people, you all need to listen to Willow's lyrics because she's talking about you. If they were riding their parents coat tails then they would use their connects but they are working and earning their own dollars!!! To the Smith family continue to be a successful family. God has obvioulsy blessed your entire family with talent and there is no sense wasting it. Let your "HATERS" be your "MOTIVATORS" ! When they talk about you, you're doing something good. When they are not talking is when you need to watch out.

      you are just missing a basic point, here. nothing she has done so far has been done in a vacuum, and by that i mean: she is will and jada's kid. anybody who 'auditioned' her would know that. and if she did the music in mom & dad's basement with mom directing her .... she's still benefiting from her parents' connections. absolutely no 9 year old child on this planet has gone out on their own and organized their career and achieved success and fame. without parents or mentors, kids just can't do that stuff. will and jada can say they didn't "push" their kids all they want, but they are the parents, and it is clear t hat if they didn't want the kids doing these things, they wouldn't be doing them. we all push our children merely by smiling or frowning when they do what they do. it is disingenuous for the Smiths to say they had no influence on their childrens' "careers".,

How many parents allow their 9 year old DAUGHTER to shave off the sides of their head. She is just another child whose scientologist parents are setting her up for a life of things and no substance. As for Smith's SAMPLING the music for Summertime, nothing classic about using a jazz artist music and adding rap lyrics and calliNg it a song. Speaking of sampling, even the music for Parents Just Dont Und is the theme music from the sitcom I Dream of Jeannie.

    I used to like Will Smith and Jada as well. That is until recently, when their son became the Karate Kid and their daughter became this hair whipping disaster. She is nine years old and he is a kid as well! Why on earth Will/Jada are subjecting their kids to this lifestyle is beyond me. A bit of advice for them. Dont sit there scratching your heads when they are both alchololics, strung out on pills and coke. It will be your fault for putting them in this life. They could do ANYTHING with your money, contacts and names at their disposal. But they wont. They will end up as addicts chasing fame in their parents footsteps. I hope you know what you are doing b/c i see the next lohan/spears, just give it time. Kids need to be kids, not nine year old "pop stars". Their talent levels are not that high, people just fear their parents so they are put in movies and told they could sing. Too bad, they had a chance at one time...

No you didn't. Ease up on the parents, their kids wanted to know the industry, the parents might be teaching them a lesson on how hard it truly is, and that they really don't want to be in Hollywood. At which time they will go to school, play sports or be in the school play, go to college, and we will never hear about them again unless Fox plays the next karate kid at 2AM in 2020

      on, come on @Sean. who did willow have to audition with to record her own song that she wrote? and can you actually imagine jaden auditioning for the karate kid and NOT getting the role? you are incredibly naive if you believe that these childrens' parentage had nothing to do with the fact that we know their names.

      Was I was a kid I wanted to be a doctor. My father was already a respected doctor. While he supported my goals, he did not walk me into the ER room and tell me to suit up. There is a time when reaching our goals is appropriate, and it is AFTER we have EARNED them.

    This further proves that you don't need real talent to make it in hollywood. You just need to know the right people. There are hundreds of "stars" who are mere entertainers on par with garbage, yet they are the rage because of their parents or who they have slept with. Why didn't the terrorists attack Hollywood instead?

    Hmmmm. This is a tough one. As cruel as some might sound, I do agree that she should be busy being a child wrather than trying to muster talent out of connections and privelage. On the other hand, Will and Jada smith have always given me the impression of being intelligent successful people who will certainly NOT let their child become a celebrity statistic. At least I hope. As far as her music goes, I don't like that "whip" song. It's pointless. But guess what? There's a market for it. People will buy it, radio stations will play it (are playing it), and there will definately be more of it. I just hope that her parents make good with this and let it die as it eventually will.

As if that fraze some how makes you oblivious to the fact that you just hurt another person's feelings. Ask the chubby kid who's been teased all through his childhood years how those "jokes" affected him even as an adult.....Don't be a fool your entire life Superhiro!

      What caused Will Smith to crossover into mainstream music with predominately white listeners was in fact because his music was clean. No songs about degrading women, no lyrics about committing crimes, no lyrics that specified skin color, major keys, so it was radio friendly all the way. What really sold him out was his acting career. DJ Jazzy Jeff was the real talent in that duo.

      "she had to have some sort of voice because she was signed" ... what planet have you been living on. don't you know that any no-talent wonder who's ambitious enough or who has a stage mom ambitious enough (jada, i'm looking at you), can get signed? these days it has nothing to do with talent. that's why there's so much electronic stuff going on, so you can't tell that they can't sing. i have tremendous respect for will smith. i think that jada pinkett is a gold digger who got the ultimate "Golden Ticket" in snagging Will Smith, and i think that her endless and shameless promotion of herself, her kids, her band and her philosophy that she knows everything about life all are completely ridiculous. sure, she's rich, so she can do whatever she wants to do. but do i respect her? no. raise your kids at home and stop blessing us all with your mere existence. it was sweeter without you.
