Willow Smith Says 1970s Leaders Experienced So Much More Than People Today

Willow Smith keeps it chic in black while taking a stroll with her dog on Tuesday (October 7) in New York City.

“Being a leader in the 1970′s is unlike anything a kid of the 21 century will ever experience in a lifetime,” the 13-year-old actress tweeted on the same day.

    wtf does she know?? as if she were one

  • Philipp

    @sx: So? At least she realizes that she’s fortunate and can appreciate that. Jesus, you guys need to criticize EVERYTHING! God…

  • Diedre

    What? Seriously people, this is what happens when your CO$ parents let you decide that you don’t need a formal education.

  • iknowitall

    She is 13!!!!!

  • Ani


    Seriously, understanding and respecting the struggles of those who came before you is a negative?

    I think people love to hate on the Smiths, so therefore create reasons to do so.

    Whatever beliefs the Smiths practice is their right and their business.

  • C

    She should be so lucky as to have a sit down with Malala.

  • KBB

    she’s telling the truth. No sense creating drama–the ppl of yesterday truly fought for something substantial not some stupid “who’s dating who”

  • nina

    oh god she’s in that phase….

  • Melanie

    @Ani: Sadly not true. I don’t dislike the Smiths at all – Will is a legend. But his children are an embarrassment. This stupid little wench doesn’t know war or struggle so yes I do think both her and Jaden need a good bloody hiding. There smug faces make me wretch.

  • jon m’shulla

    I see she is experimenting with being Black again. And a 1970s version of it too. Right on Sister!

    @Melanie: “Being a leader in the 1970′s is unlike anything a kid of the 21 century will ever experience in a lifetime,” The 13-year-old actress tweeted on the same day.” The tweet is a fact. Poor you, so angry and jealous of the Smith children.

  • Are you stupid?

    @KBB: You live in a one dimensional world if you think that is the only thing going on right now. We are fighting for women’s rights (equal pay, rights over their bodies, etc), gay rights, racial tensions, etc. If all you see is ‘who dating who” then that’s what you’re looking for on the internet, but there are others fighting for something substantial. And FYI, the “who dating who” gossip has been the subject of gossip way before the 70′s and today. That’s how a lot of actors and actresses made their careers back in the day, from who they were dating. Educate yourself and stop being myopic.

  • For real?

    @sa: You sound just as pathetic.

  • Diedre

    @Ani: I am not questioning her respect of past leaders, but it sounds like she chose a decade out of thin air. I would have thought that perhaps the 60′s would be a more appealing decade in terms of strong leadership and advances for both people of color and women.
    Contrary to what she thinks, there is a huge opportunity for young people to be strong leaders in the 21st century. We have regressed in a lot of areas and old, white men still have way too much power. The struggle continues.
    And no, I don’t hate the Smiths. Will Smith used to be one of my favorite performers. However, he has fallen in with the wrong thinking CO$ and he and JPS are doing their children no favors by raising them with the ‘they’re little adults’ mentality and handing them everything on a silver platter.
    I’m pretty sure that’s not how WS or JPS were raised and I surprised they would choose to raise their kids the CO$ way.
    By all means, be their fans. That’s your right. I too have a right to my opinion. I don’t respect the Smiths at all and I feel sorry for their kids.

  • Dee

    @Diedre: What concern is it of yours how someone raises their own kids?

  • mean

    She doesn’t know what went on 1970′s. Your parents haven’t been parents to you. You need to go to school and learn and go to college.All this girl does is sit around and go out to eat. She looks bored.

  • Cain

    She has had plastic surgery to pin back ears and maybe nose job also. She needs to shut up and appreciate that she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Same goes for her dumb bro.

  • guest

    Shocker she states her opinion about things and gets her throat ripped out for it by so many rational adults attacking a 13 year old. Beyond sad and ridiculous at the same time. The hate this child receives is disgusting.

  • Together

    she’s a kid, give her a break.
