Willow Smith: 'Whip My Hair' Video Premiere!!

Willow Smith rocks out in her brand new music video for “Whip My Hair”!

The 9-year-old daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith filled Ryan Seacrest in on the meaning of the song. “You can’t be afraid to be yourself,” Willow dished. “You have to be yourself and you can’t let anyone tell you that it’s wrong!”

The fun video was directed by Ray Kay and features a cameo from Willow‘s big bro, Jaden Smith!

FYI: Willow will perform her single in front of a live audience at The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, November 2!

    @Mary:

  • Jarnelle

  • Cris

    Never in my life have I seen a bunch of grown people hating on a little girl. You guys are S-T-U-P-I-D!!! What exactly was not age appropriate in this video? She didn’t curse, she didn’t say anything vulgar, and she definitely dressed like a 9 year old. You guys are just jealous you aren’t famous, rich, cute, and you don’t have your own video.

  • Franklin

    WTF is wrong with some of you? Its a MUSIC VIDEO(entertainment purposes) in which the kids are covered up, and paint splashes tie into a colorful kid-ish theme; which explains the crazy clothes, NOT LA fashion. And as far as DADDY’s MONEY goes….how is this any diff from a well-off family that pumps kids to Ivy Leauge Schools or a kid groomed to take over the family business? (mean nothing politically but George Bush is the best example of “HOMELY TALENTLESS” from daddys money and connections….fact). Will Smith has been very Successful on all 3 levels of showbiz(music,tv,movie), has a marriage that lasts, and is simply sharing his achievements with his kids, LIKE WE ALL WOULD. Oh, and the will smith ‘insulation from reality” theory is dumb. Why? bc he’s successful in his career and makes lots of money for it? I hope none of your family ever try anything worth doing bc f*ckers like urselves will try to shoot em down…BUT haters make the world go ’round…do ya thang, lil smith

  • AK

    Can we say auto-tuned?

  • melissa b

    I was surprised that I actually liked it. It’s gonna be one of those songs that get stuck in your head. ‘I whip my hair’ and she actually SOUNDS good. She just seems so young to being this though. Like is she going to turn 25 and wish she could’ve just been a kid. For pete sake she’s only 9! How can you even possibly know what you wanna do when your 9, or should do??? So weird.

  • Really

    @Steve Jobs:

    You have no idea what the priorities are in the Smith household! Keep the parenting advice to yourself.

  • Quin

    Obviously this is what Willow wants to do. I don’t think her parents are pushing her to do anything but follow her dreams. She’s having fun. Great song and video!

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    People are not “Hating”. It’s just that America likes to see the old rags to riches story of people ACTUALLY working hard to get things. This child was created and made by her rich parents and their connection. She did not have to work hard at all this. Also, she should be playing not singing about “my swag on”. What about little girls with short hair? Will they feel alienated by this? Just awful nepotism. That is why people are upset. This is being shoved down our throats and you can’t escape it. Sick.

  • Susan

    I find her adorable. Way to go Willow!

  • Awwww come on!!!!

    She’s very talented!!

  • rowena2012

    @Mary:
    wow its funny how shes being fully clothed and talking about her hair. thats obviously about as age appropriate as you can get in the music industry these days. i apologize 4 ur daughter or whoever u said she was. when she goes to college like i assume u want her too….she wont know what to do with herself because you lock her up. this is nice clean music. nothing dirty at all. and for all the other people out there that have negative comments, if you ever listen to any interviews you will find that she still goes to school and she has to be on top of her grades. to her, making music is a hobby right now, just like horseback riding or ballet. will n jada are not forcing her to do anything

  • samiyord

    @um:

    Willow Smith look face her brother Jaden Smith.. Amazing! she only 9-year-old but singing well. Daddy Will Smith and mommy Jada Pinkett-Smith must be so proud!

  • Youthwisdom

    It’s pretty f***ed up that people are HATING on a 9 year old!! She’didn’t get signed because of her parents, Jay Z said himself he heard her song without knowing it was and was like “This is HOT!” THEN he found out who she was.

  • http://twitter.com/kikibaybieeexo Kiki

    you guys dont even give the damn girl a chance .. anywho, Willow, girl, your gonna go many places, love her! :)

  • kEEPERS

  • lollipop

    WOW! She’s only 9! What a talent! Awesome video

  • YES I SAID IT

    For all the HATERS saying that A-) She only got a deal because of her parents SHE GOT THE DEAL BASED ON HER TALENT. JAY Z DIDN’T KNOW WHO SHE WAS WHEN HE HEARD THE SONG B-) She’s dressed inappropriately WTF? SHE IS NEVER INAPPROPRIATE AT ANY POINT IN THE VIDEO OR ANY OF THE PICTURES I’VE SEEN OF HER HER FAMILY HAS A GOOD GRASP ON MORALS, WHICH IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR THE LIKES OF ADULTS HATING ON A CHILD C-) “You’re too old for this” THEN BY ALL MEANS STFU !! IF YOU’RE TOO OLD DON’T WATCH THE VIDEO AND DEFINATELY DON’T LEAVE A COMMENT IDIOT! GO BACK TO THE 70′S WHERE YOU BELONG!

    hey to all you asshole who wanna hate on a NINE YEAR OLD , go jump . This video go hard especially for such a young age . Will & Jada know what they are doing so hop off . #thatisall

  • Ryan Cope’

    You don’t even have any haters so dont be singing about it, you 9 years old and nobody cares who you are!

  • Jokergurl

    It’s an inventive video, the Jackson Pollack thing with her hair is creative. It doesn’t scream REBEL it’s just about confidence, good beat, she’s got her dad’s charisma, although I’m not crazy about it when she says “all my ladies” she should have said all my “girls”, “ladies” sounds a little age inappropriate but when you have 4 nieces you kind of pick everything apart. All in all a cute video. I think she will be fine with the whole kid/Hollywood thing, Will Smith is pretty normal, he’s never been into drugs or had problems, Jada has not either. I think their kids will be fine. A typical kid though? No, her dad makes 25 million a movie, and her mom makes 5 at least. She lives in a world most kids would dream of and wants for nothing really. Not that I hold that against her, if you’ve got the money let your kids explore their creative side but keep it in perspective. Will Smith keeps it in perspective.

  • emilie

    omg this girl
    hahaha
    i love her! shes awesome

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    If you guys believe Jay-Z did not know who she was before he signed her, I got a bridge in Siberia I’d like to sell you. Seriously? OF COURSE JayZ knew who she was. You know how hard it is to get a record deal and he just HAPPENS to land on a record from the most famous actor in the world’s daughter? Seriously. That’s like Tori Spelling saying the Producers of 90210 did not know she was Aaron Spelling’s daughter when she “auditioned”. Riiiiiight! lol. The worst thing for Willow: she will never know what it is like to struggle for something and prove yourself. Instead she will believe, all you have ot do is dial Mom and dad and you get things. Even at 9. I don’t care how rich she is, this is a sad thing for a child. Part of a child’s development is to be able to work hard, get denied, fight harder then get rewarded. This is INSANE and it will backfire on th eSmiths.

  • http://www.inconsequentiallogic.com Roschelle

    Toooo cute. Period!!

  • Malibu

    Just inappropriate.

    She is just a kid and her parents shouldn’t encourage her, at only nine year old, to do stuff like that.

  • Annie

    This place has been almost completely taken over by paid spammers. Sad. I used to enjoy this blog.

  • bette

    Please cut that hair, look like a bird nest. If this is the fashion trend today, I´ll definitely will not get into fashion today. Don´t be hypocrite people, be honest for once, it looks awfull.

  • Larissa

    This is so bad. Nepotism at its most foul. Don’t these parents actually care about their children’s wellbeing? They should concentrate on developing their characters ,health, intelligence – not their celebrity. Gross.

  • Amy

    So cute! go Willow! So why are some people angry? LOL, we have Miley cirus, britney, biebier…. and people praise them, let’s be real, Willow is Black, that’s the problem. Go Willow, she’s here to stay even if you HATE her.

    I hope I will not get moderated because that’s the truth. And it’s sad, some RACIST comment like this idiot “Tiffani ” are still here, double standard! Anyway go Willow!!

  • Annie

    It has zero to do with her being black. If this was a white little girl getting record deals and dancing around singing about “her swagga” it would be every bit as stupid.

  • Annoyedandconfused

    seriously…. what is the world coming to. The only reason she got a record deal was because she’s will smiths daughter. The girl is 9 with no talent.. What money won’t buy you. The same goes with their son.

  • AJ

    Is it just me or does Willow look so much like Rihanna? The smile, the hair? So cute! Hopefully she won’t grow up to be like other celebrities who continually change their image for publicity (AKA depending on their image rather than raw talent).

  • okay

    I think the girl is cute but honestly my old azz got a headache watching all that whippin of hair lmao!

  • sweet hazel

  • Cynthia Cox

    Willow,

    You did very good for your first video. I’m so proud of you as I know your parents are. I know you will stay in school your parents will make sure of that. Willow do what makes you happy and ignore negitive people because they will bring you down. Keep positive people in your life.

  • love

    @Annie:
    if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
    she is 9.

  • gonz

    LOVE LOVE LOVE….Beautiful voice…song is weird but catchy…and im weird soo i like it.GO WILLOW…XOXO
    dont worry about all them haters, your one of a kind and keep doing what you do best especially if you love it and it makes you happy :)

  • JessicaL

    @In The Know:

    You really are a jerk considering this is still a 9 y/o child. She isn’t hurting anyone and I happen to think she’s adorable. I for the life of me will never understand why people feel it’s ok to bash children. They get enough of it at school and among their peers. They don’t need it from adults.SMH

  • Annie

    @love – I’m not saying that Willow isn’t cute, because she is, but I mean, this just ain’t right. What happened to being a kid, getting an education, and THEN growing up, finding yourself, and achieving your goals on your own merits? This business of “Mommy, Daddy, I wanna record deal!” “Ok, sure hon” is only setting her up for trouble and disappointment later on in life.

  • vic

    i think she is cute and the song is prefect for kids her age

  • Lilianne

    I watched the video because I am a fan of Will Smith’s work (movies) and wanted to see his daughter performing. While the style of music and the tone of the video are too “young” for my personal taste; that doesn’t mean it is bad music or that she is doing a bad job in it. Because she isn’t. It is very catchy and cute and I am sure the tween set will LOVE it. I don’t find anything offensive about her appearance in any way. She is covered up, people! There is no inappropriate skin showing and her style is funky and cute! Some people just have to complain and find fault no matter what is going on. Spread some good vibes once in a while. You might be happier! :)

  • Amy

    How hypocrite lol, just read all the INSULTS and HATE this girl is receiving and then come here to tell me her skin color has nothing to do with it! You must be kidding, some idiot said ” she can’t whip her nappy hair” and all these stuff, it’s racist and we all know what was this idiot’s intention. If you don’t like her, cool but being here to bash a 9 years old who is doing her thing just because you’re angry that’s ridiculous. If you hate or don’t like her, leave her thread alone, thanks.

    And stop being hypocrite, of course her color is a factor ( sad but TRUE) for all the hate she’s receiving, every day we have hollywood kids with no talent who make it and ppl support it, Willow has ONLY one song and she’s being insulted and all a) because she’s black b) because she’s Will and Jada daughter and people are mad at her for that. Hey haters, didn’t Billi Ray did the SAME for Miley? Double standards again, but anyway Willow is here so deal with it or turn the radio when you hear her song. Go Willow!
