Willow Smith Says She & Brother Jaden Are Like Identical Twins

Willow Smith Says She & Brother Jaden Are Like Identical Twins

Willow Smith shows off her septum piercing on the stunning new May 2016 cover of Teen Vogue.

Here’s what the 15-year-old singer/model had to share with the mag:

On her brother Jaden: “We’re like binary stars, like two parts of one thing. I know what he’s thinking at all times. And he knows what I’m thinking. We’re not identical twins, but it feels like that in a lot of ways.”

On if and when she felt less empowered: “Yes. One hundred percent. After ‘Whip My Hair’ and all the publicity, after going on tour in the U.K., after saying no to the Annie film, all of this crap was going on in my life, and I had to sit down and say, ‘Who are you? On a real note. Are you this or this?’ During that time of figuring it out, I was lost and super insecure. But then I stopped trying to find myself in these other inanimate objects, people, and ideas. I realized it isn’t about finding yourself”it’s about creating yourself.”

On working with Chanel: “Being a young African-American woman with dreads, it blows my mind that I’m a Chanel ambassador. Like, how am I a Chanel ambassador? It is so beautiful. I’m coming into a new part of my life that is completely unknown, and I’m jumping right in. All I can do from here is continue to shift paradigms and continue to push the envelope further and further. But I am doing it every day just by being myself.”

    Hey, little girl. It blows everybodys mind that you’re a Chanel ambassador.

  • Gentry Harms

    What a pretentious little narcissist those two pretentious narcissists raised!

    Ugly as sin, yet a “model”. If anyone needs ANY proof of nepotism in Hollywood, the Smith children are bright, shinning “binary stars” of proof.

  • Amber

    No, I’m 27. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with seeing something special in someone regardless of their age. Willow Smith is spirited, confident, and completely comfortable in her own skin…And she’s only 15! I’m also a fan of Rowan Blanchard, Amandla Stenberg, Yara Shahidi, and Quvenzhane Wallis. All of these young women to me are an inspiration. Do I have to be 10 to admire the qualities that they already have at such a young age?


    Creepy in my opinion but you keep on having kids under 16 as your role models… weird

  • Amber

    Oh, fuck off. You’re making way more out of it than you need to.
