Whip My Hair Has A "Message" Say Willow Smith

| Filed under: Music MinuteWillow Smith

willow smith talks the message of whip it

And that message is to be FIERCE, just like Willow Smith.

With the single out and the killer video hitting the airwaves, there seems to be no stopping Willow Smith's first single, Whip My Hair.

But while you might be doing permanent damage to your cranium by jerking your follicles to and fro, Willow would like people to recognize that there is deeper meaning to her song. She explains in a recent interview:

" Whip My Hair means don't be afraid to be yourself and don't let anybody tell you that that's wrong. Because the best thing is you."

Word! Girl is wise beyond her years! Plus, she's on her way to totally music domination.

Should her single hit the #1 spot this week, she will become the youngest artist in history to do so, beating out the likes of Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder!

Amazing! Fingers crossed for you, BB!

    Goddamn.

    I hate entertainner nepotism. And this is one example of the worst in celebrity nepotism.

    .

    She absolutely exudes snot-nosed arrogance, conceit, total diva bitchiness.

    .

    Kid or not, fuck the little entitled brat. And her damn Sciencefictionologist parents. Will was ok. A long time ago. Now? Both he and his wife are just another couple of Hollywood corporate products replicating more Hollywood corporate products in the spawn.

    I don't think she's that great but at least I don't mind seeing her on top of the world instead of Justin Bieber



  5. 5

    Should you really be yourself if you're an obnoxious, narcissistic, rude, demanding, cruel person?



  6. 6

    I wish that the entire Smith family would spontaneously combust.



  7. 7

    I like her a lot better than her obnoxious brother.



  8. 8

    What a whore!



  9. 9

    Seriously love her. Jada is a black girls idol next to Beyonce, What I mean is.. many black girls rarely see strong beautiful female really staying true to themselves. I mean Tupac even said there are two type of females a bitch and then there is Jada Pinkett. Jada did well raising her daughter that girl has confident and accepts herself for who she is at such a young age.. something girls have a hard time finding.



  10. 10

    She is way fierce! Love her!



  11. 11

    She is not 'wise beyond her years', she is just well coached. She is a manufactured product of her parents. Her childhood is officially over - she is now public domain.



  12. 12

    Oh, sage advice from a 10 year old. That's what whip my hair means? I thought it just meant, whip my hair.



  13. 13

    This kid is so weird just like her Mother. What's up with her face in that picture? She's like a 35 year old trapped in a 9 year olds body. Her whole style and attitude are just weird, she's a kid! She should be having fun.



  14. 14

    "She absolutely exudes snot-nosed arrogance, conceit, total diva bitchiness."

    yep. couldn't have said it better myself.



  15. 15

    totally thought this was a recent picture of PRINCE…this child is trying too hard to look cool..she is totally manufactured.



  16. 16

    Re: Chinwe Okorie – If this is a a " black girls idol" , I thank GAWD Im Native American and white because none of my girls would EVER idolize what her parents are putting out there. Totally wrong !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  17. 17

    idky everyones talking about her.. it's one song damn.. and it's extremely annoying.. geez people get hooked on crap so easily.. pathetic.. and she dresses like a clown the kid should just be a kid like most 9 yr olds..



  18. 18

    Artist? maybe when she has crayons and paper.



  19. 19

    She is only 9 yrs old. Her parents I hope have prepared her for negative remarks and I hope they are prepared for the negative remarks they are going to get for putting their kids in front of the camera. I hope they prove me wrong.



  20. 20

    Her first single is kick ass… I was hooked from the first listen… A little style and music icon in the making… brava to her!



  21. 21

    I am surprise to see a lot of hate comments on a 9 year old girl and for the people bashing her they are just haters cause jeta picket smith has always been known as astrong women and its clear that she raise her daughter will. will smith has never been on the negative toabloids not to mention the smith family are the only hollywood couple that have there relationship working. I am happy willow smith is showing a positive message to people. she has talent for her age she can actually sing and has a very nice voice for her age so i give you my respect willow smith. sure she probably did not wrote that song but I least she knows what songs she wants to record. she is smart for her age dont bash her saying she is will coach or someone told her to say this kids her age have a opinion as will its not always complete control of there life. xoxoxo willow smith.



  22. 22

    I love this girl she an awesome talent not like other teenagers out there that is a bullcrap talentless kid (justin Bebeirdouchbag) Willow will be huge talent in the future including acting just like her dad. screw you haters jealous low lifes. she'll have the last laugh that's for sure.



  23. 23

    ”be yourself and don't let anybody tell you that that's wrong. Because the best thing is you." …….that is the dumbest thing I have ever read…A LOT of people NEED to be told that they are WRONG. Exemple: you got told youre a bully.

    This song is HORRIBLE!!!!!! It wouldn't be anywhere if it weren't for who her parents are.



  25. 25

    Re: The Dude! – Dude shes like eleven. Guess who's the asshole in this situation? yup, you.



  26. 26

    Re: Chinwe Okorie – ja and we all know jada pinket was the original bithc waaay back in the day, before you were born.
    so all black girls should just run off and become Scientologists and hand over
    their money to buy self esteem



  27. 27

    You guys are sad people, she's NINE, and you're judging her? Wow you people are low lifes who need to get a life.



  28. 28

    Thanks queenie, for censoring , and NOT posting , when I said I thought she was a he from the pics.. and then I went on to say that her parents were WRONG for letting her do a video aimed at kids that can cause WHIPLASH, which is in part when your damn brain( IF u have one ) hits your head after constant back and for hard motion, like the old rock n rollers…. YET you posted my second post… I said NOTHING offensive in the first.. but now FUCK U

    Re: queen britney – learn how to spell before you try to appear "smart"



  30. 30

    Re: Chinwe Okorie – You don't really believe the shit you just wrote. Do you?



  31. 31

    First off, I will admit I have no personal knowledge of this girl. BUT… from what I hear, the song is TOTALLY average and from what I see in her photos,complete arrogance and superiority. Poor girl…I wonder if she's ever been just that… a girl??



  32. 32

    WOW IT LOOKS LIKE STAR IS ABOUT TO BORN, SHE LOOKS INTRESTING WE WILL SEE WHAT SHE HAS TO OFERT IN THE MUSIC BIZZ??? GOOD LUCK I JUST HOPE THE NEW JANET JACKSON IS IN THE BIGWAY.



  33. 33

    she's so goofy looking. yuck.



  34. 34

    Make it go away. Make it go away.



  35. 35

    Yet, she is her mother's fashion minion. Go figure.



  36. 36

    go willow!



  37. 37

    Re: queen britney – I bet you've never seen one interview of the Smith family. Maybe you will change your tune then. They should all fuck off on the high horse they came in.



  38. 38

    She is a superstar.
    I love this girl.



  39. 39

    Re: YallsStoopid – Perhaps you should stop feeling sorry for yourself and quit picking on a 9 year-old. Speaking of role models, it's obvious you aren't one to "your girls". Bully!



  40. 40

    Yet another CHILD who's parents PAID for their kids to be famous. FUCKING HORRIBLE.



  41. 41

    I think the whole Family is very talented!
    Cute and stay innocent



  42. 42

    The song is garbage, the lyrics ridiculous and it's way over produced and auto tuned. There is NO talent there and to call it fierce? Get real.
    Will used to be so awesome, now a Hollywood sellout, Scientologist in denial pimping out his kids for the "Church".
    She is 9, and in that photo looks 35, why not allow her to be 9.
    And to the person who said that she's just a kid to lay off her, sorry, her parents made her public domain therefore all systems go. We are entitled to our opinion of her "art" and so called "talent". If her father wasn't who he is no way would we be listening to "music" by this kid.

    I to am sick of the Hollywood celebuspawn receiving preferential treatment when there is TRUE AND AMAZING talent out there. If Hollywood had been like this way back the world never would have know Brando, James Dean and the like.
    Hollywood is now become what teabaggers want for the rest of America, elite and serf.



  43. 43

    You know what, little girl?
    Sometimes being yourself is just crappy and you need to change yourself. People don't always have to accept you just because YOU think you are fuckin' fabulous.
    .
    Oh, she's going to be through some serious disappointments in life.



  44. 44

    This little f*cktard is full of adult triteness. YAWN. Nothing original or cute about this regurgitating, pretentious Hollywood troll.

    this bitch has worked for nothing. she's famous because she has famous parents. boring!!!!!!!!! work for your shit girl. most people aren't privileged like you!

  46. timo says – reply to this


    46

    really?!?!? she only has talent because of her parents. i will never listen to her shit. she's ridiculous. try working for something and not living through your parents

  48. 48

    Cut her some slack, people. She's only 9 years old. Were you expecting something more profound out of her? Ten years from now she'll probably be laughing at what she did or said at age 9.



  49. 49

    Why Is Everyone Hating On Her Cause Shes 9 And Shes Famous Now
    Haters



  50. 50

    The music industry is a joke. Even worse are the idiots that but they shit that they peddle as music today. Do you people truly believe that pre-teen kids are more talented then established artists who can actually write songs and play instruments? How can we expect the industry to release quality music if nobody demands it?



  51. 51

    She is adorable! What a talented family!! And they are all gorgeous!!!



  52. 52

    I would like to initiate a pledge for all the celebrities and those in the entertainment industry who are registered to cast a ballot to make the time to vote on 11/2/2010. Also get your friends and fans motivated to vote on 11/2/2010.
    Reasons why to VOTE DEMOCRATIC by reading the following accomplishments:
    1. The healthcare reform initiative was passed so anyone can afford insurance 2. Financial Reform laws were passed to regulate Wall Street’s activities to invest ethically and be accountable 3. Unemployment Benefits were extended to those out of work 4. Initiative was passed to keep teachers, firemen, & local/city government employees from being laid off 5. U.S. businesses are being encouraged to create jobs down the ladder but high pay, huge bonuses & expense accounts hamper this growth 6. Grants, Pell Grants & other academic loans were reinstated, whereas republicans suspended these benefits previously 7. 1st Amendment “Freedom of Speech was threatened by the Bush Administration 10. Credit Card Bill of Rights were passed to protect consumers (You) 11. New tax breaks were given to Small businesses to encourage growth & SBA loans expanded to start new companies 12. Taxes were lowered in 2009 for middle class to get tax breaks 13 On 9/28/10 republicans blocked passage of the Off-Shore bill (S. 3816) which would have denied tax breaks to any company sending our jobs overseas. Need the Dems to vote it in.

    Re: timo
    "this bitch has worked for nothing."
    Well, most kids her age haven't either.



  54. 54

    I guess it pays to be Will Smith's daughter. She only has one song and look at all the attention shes getting



  55. 55

    OH PULEEEZ, FAT BOY MUST BE DUMB AS A DOOR KNOB. ANY1 WHO'S HAD A KINDERGARTEN EDUCATION COULD HAVE TOLD U WHAT WHIP MY HAIR WAS ABOUT. AT HER AGE, TALENT IS NO SUBSTITUTION FOR EDUCATION. TRUE DAT, THE VIDEO AND SONG AINT EXACTLY STELLAR MATERIAL. THE VID IS A COMPLETE MESS, ABSOLUTELY NO STORY OR PLOTLINE. JUST A PAINTBALL FIGHT. JUST SAYIN..



  56. 56

    Re: rosebud99 – It sound so terrible.But i agree with you.



  57. 57

    Re: Baron87 – MJ and his family released some awesome songs.And he was way younger than her.I think 8 or 9?Just because shes young doesnt give her and excuse to release talentless music.



  58. 58

    Re: Chinwe Okorie – how the hell is she anyone's idol? the only people i hear talking about her is you and perez.. i can't believe you said that.. what the fuck has she done really?

    she is a cute little girl ill give her that. and she can dance ok and she can lipsync to her music well.
    but everyone knows she did not write this song has noidea what she sez in interviews she is just repeating what her mom and dad told her to.
    their the classy looking lohans.

    they sell their kids but protect them at the same time

    [re=5406032]Re: rory48[/rey] So…you are basing your opinion of this child and her song on HEARSAY??? That's dumb…



  65. 65

    Perez… seriously, how much do you charge for promoting this shit. Fierce??????? Can you quote any other word than the lame description that Beyounce and Rhianna put forth about themselves. Who writes this crap for you… time to start recruiting or maybe offer your employee's some other incentive. maybe it time for you to even start looking through these posts prior to uploading them.



  66. 66

    love this song!! and like this girl! :)



  67. 67

    Somebody should set Will Smith's brats adrift on an ice floe



  68. 68

    I am rooting for her !!!! I love her song and she is so sweet. Congrats Willow



  69. 69

    I am shocked and appalled by the comment some of you so called adults are making. She is a child 9 years old and grew up around talent, she has talent in her genes. You talk as if you know her family but the only true thing you do know is their names nothing more. They live a different lifestyle than we live and so their children have experienced different things than our have. That is no need to say the things you have said about Willow. Let our children have their dreams we should encoarage their talent not down them for it. Shame on ya'll



  70. 70

    allright perez, i get that u're trying to be nice, but really..shit is shit and the smith/pinkett family is made out of shit.. there's no talent, there's nepotism



  71. 71

    Just another annoying Hollywood mouthpiece. And she's only nine.



  72. 72

    I THINK SHE IS REAL CUTE BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO REAL ARTIST ????MANUFACTURED STARS ??MANUFACTURED SINGER I CANT EVEN WATCH AWARD SHOWS KEISHA>RIHANNA>>. BIEBER>TAYLOR SWIFT >>>LETS HAVE A SHOW WITH THESE PEOPLE SINGING LIVE WITHOUT A TRACK OR LIVE AGINST REAL SINGERS >>>MILLI VANILLE DID THIS SAME THING AND WERE SHAMED BEHIND IT ONE COMMITS SUICIDE …GAGA CAN SING BUT HOW MANY CONCERTS CAN WE GO TO >.RADIO SAME THING WENEED REAL SINGERS TIRED OF MANUFACTURED SINGERS AND ACTORS THIS LITTLE GIRL IS SO AUTOTUNED IT IS RIDICULOUS >..CUTE YES SINGER NO LITTLE RICH KID >>.,



  73. 73

    She looks like a little baboon. It's sick how these rich idiots in Hollywood get to exploit everyone, even their own kids. And they dress this kid like it's Halloween every day. Gross.



  74. 74

    EFFF you guys! leave her alone, she's only 9 years old. GTFO OUTTA HERE.

    this song is fabulous. i love it.



  75. 75

    The message is if you have loaded parents hiring writers and producers and stylists for you to have at your disposal, anything can happen at age 9!!! AWESOME!

    Her mom is trying live vicariously through this girl since her own music career failed miserably.

    The song is terrible. All pop music is terrible. Turn on a college radio station for crying out loud and find some real music.



  76. 76

    wth is she wearing? im telling you there is no 9 years old girl who wants to wear that shit in this entire world. cmon now: seriously.



  77. 77

    Wise beyond her years?
    I've seen alot of nine year old girls say things like that.



  78. 78

    RIIIIIGHT! Now all of a sudden there is a message to this song. this song is nonsense. I don't want to read about it, or Willow, or the Smiths anymore. They need to go away on the mothership and never come back. Both of the Smith kids are coached on what to say,what to dress, and how to pose. It's disgusting and blantantly obvious that Jada's daughter is just a puppet on the strings, handled by her mother.



  79. 79

    this talentless twit should just shut the fuck uip already. she cant sing , she overly auto tuned like kayne has been. they are both so autotuned they sound like dumbass robots and everyone who is saying they are the greatest thing since sliced bread are tone deaf! tired of this twit already!

  80. uyeah says – reply to this


    80

    With her it's obviously a visual thing. It's easy to be 'fierce' if you have unlimited money to buy it. Lots of kids can't buy fierce clothes and accessories and get their hair done. The song is awful. The message is, "look at me!", be a narcissist!

    Re: OhBigDeal – Your comment about 'teabaggers' wanting America to be elite and serf? That's exactly what they are fighting against! That was out of left field, nonsequitur and completely ignorant! Elite and serf is what Obama's giving us!



  82. 82


  83. 83

    SHE IS AMAZING! :)



  84. 84

    ewwww she's totally her mommas child an arrogrant self entitled bitch…sorry to say that about a kid but she totally thinks shes better than everyone else and once her 15 minutes of fame are over all she'll have is daddies $$$… and is it me or does she look like a chld will smith in drag?



  85. 85

    "…dont be afraid to be yourself". HERE THAT JADA AND WILL?? YOUR OWN DAUGHTER IS TELLING YOU TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET.



  86. 86

    Not my kind of music, but surprisingly not horrible…and she has a pretty decent voice (if that is what her voice sounds like without autotune). I do think it's sad though that at such a young age that she is already working and in the limelight. I have a daughter the same age, and she's outside playing with her friends and watching Disney channel. I hate seeing young kids like this acting so much more mature then they should. After all you have all the time in the world to be grown-up but the magical time of being a kid is just a blip on the radar of your life. I think her parent's should have kept her to just being a kid until she was like 15 or something…and she could have sung int he shower and did talent shows at school or something until then.



  87. 87

    Girl's gorgeous, lookin' like Jada. Leave it to the Fresh Prince to make the freshest lil princess.



  88. 88

    So when I'm feeling confident, I should just whip my hair around?



  89. 89

    She's 9!!! What were you talking about when you were 9!?? The song is age appropriate, not to mention her being extra cute has something to do with it. And this is America…why would she learn to add and subtract when she could be a celebrity :-)



  90. 90

    Please…spare us all this one.



  91. 91

    I wonder who told her to say that…..



  92. 92

    there is something about her that bothers the HELL OUT OF ME.
    shes a skanky, untalented, retarded, and only a teeny bit famous cause of her parents.
    I HATE HER!!!!!!!!!!!! GO PISS OFF! UGLY THING! exactly.



  93. 93

    Yeah i do believe in what i said. And I do recall in the 90s she was very respected by men. She has confident and respect herself. Other black female in the media just sell sex and if you notice when they take a photo their ass is the focus. Its a shame.
