Talk about bursting into stardom! With Willow Smith’s catchy “Whip My Hair” video burning up the internet this week, it’s safe to say mama Jada Pinkett Smith saw it coming.
Back at the beginning of summer, she tipped us that Willow had a music project on the way that was really going to be something.
“Willow is explosive, she’s all energy,” Jada explains. “She’s like her father in that way – very extroverted. She deals with the public like Will does – but her creative sensibilities are very much like mine. Very unconventional.”
Indeed. Willow’s already being hailed as a style maker, what with such eye-catching fashion flourishes as the chrome band she sports around her ear and what look like lip and eyelid piercings. (No, no, no…..!) Willow’s radio comment about being interested in working with Lady Gaga has been picked up by outlets all around the world.
You may recall that when the Smiths were in China for the making of son Jaden’s “Karate Kid” film, Willow fell in love with the culture to the extent she took up Mandarin – and continued learning the language back in Los Angeles so she could speak it better when the family returned to China for the movie’s premiere.
Hard to believe she doesn’t even turn 10 until Halloween
