Willow Smith's Quiet Defiance


Back in 2012 11-year-old Willow Smith walked away from her gig as the opening act for Justin Bieber in the middle of the tour [click here if you missed that].

Her father Will Smith opens up about what was really going on behind the scenes at the time...

In 'Footnotes of Adnis', a Tidal exclusive video companion to Jay Z's 4:44 album, Will Smith recalls,
"We came downstairs and she had shaved her head bald. She shaved her head bald in the middle of her 'Whip My Hair' tour. I was like, 'Oh, s--t.'"
"I'm looking at that girl and I'm like, 'Got it. I understand. You will not have this trouble out of me ever again. Let's go, baby. We can go.'"
"For me, it was that soldier that was pushing and wasn't paying any attention whatsoever to what was going on emotionally with this beautiful little creature in front of me."
"That was the first part of the collapsing of my father's suit that I was wearing that wasn't mine."

I don't comprehend🤷🏿‍♂️ They forced her into it and she rebelled. Is that what this is saying?🤔

What Will is saying g is that he realized she was to young to be in the business with that pressure of trying g to tour,headlines ewhile still being a child. He stepped I saw that it was overwhelmombg her to the point t that she shaved her head and got her out of their ASAP.

Willow is a very pretty girl, she could lose the nose ring though!

I'm glad he respected her message and not force her to continue with the tour. That was he and Jada's dream, not hers.

Like father, daughter, wife and son WTF do they be babbling about? Him and his wife the only two that thinks their kids are geniuses far beyond their years. They needed to take their ass to school FIRST OF ALL why did they have a choice to go or not to go.

lol at the comments. i get the gist of what he was saying. basically ole girl shaved her head like britney as a scream for help...but unlike britney's parents who ignored her pleas and kept pushing her back on stage. will got the hint and they bounced. good for him i guess. but at the same time they pressured her into in the first place, well actually it was probably more so jada. jada seems like the type of parent it's hard for her to listen to what you say. she thinks she has all the answers.

Advise from auntie said...

They never pressured the kids they follow Scientology and treat them like adults when they aren't. They are children and they talk the talk but they don't have life experience to know the consequences of their action in the future. Like not finishing a board certified school, dating older people, drug use and living in a million dollar home by themselves.

This kid looks miserable as hell. She is like the black Angelina Jolie in about 10 years she will be adopting kids, looking crazy and have the same soulless eyes. All the talking the SMiths do their kids look like they hang out in the back yard with tin foil on their heads cursing out the government. A good education never really hurt anybody all their money not going no where so them being grounded and doing all this extra shit could of waited.

@ 4:47 pm. i forgot that they aren't made to school either. didn't willow admit to barely being able to read at one point. jada ought to be shamed of herself. i never thought she would be this type of parent. seems like she would've been more hardcore. i wish the kids well. they doing the best with what they've been (not) given.

Google the Vogue spread Willow did and you will see she is uniquely beautiful. she actually would give Kendall Jenner a run for her money on the catwalks.

I troll it like I see it said...

2:41 PM.Thank you for translating what Willamina said. Willow is a very beautil girl, exoric even. She would do well modeling and advertising stuff. She needs to be the face of a major makeup, hair and skincare line.

Her and her brother look like clones to me. Which would explain the switched gender roles. Willow being the female clone of Will and Jaden the male clone of Jada.

I think it's beautiful how these kids look like an exact mix of will and jada. So cute how willow looks more like will and she's named after him and jaden favors jada a bit more.
Wacko, crazy, whatever, they are still such a perfect, ideal looking hollywood family.

I don't see what you all see. Willow is funny looking. She looks like a Barbie doll when you squeeze the sides of the doll head and make her look like a fish.

Lol these comments are on point. But yep it's Jada's fault. She git these kids all fucked up mentally but you never see them in trouble in the media. I think Jada lost her fucking mind when Pac died. If Tupac was alive today he'd probably slap the shit out of Jada raising these ass backward kids. Tupac would definitely call this bitch and Will out in social media.

See this is what's wrong with America, being famous etc., the majority of you all are sitting here and tearing a child down. Just because you grew up a drone and doing what every other kid on the corner wanted to do, doesn't make her crazy. She's richer than all of us, and all you attn grabbers couldn't survive the amount of attn she was and still gets to this day. I hope she doesn't read comment sections. A bunch of poor excuses for adults & black women & men.

@5:37pm, She would be a very good model

But it seem as though Jada and Will will never allow that to happen

Their egos are too big and Willow may branch out on her own and cut them all off!

Willow seem capable of excelling and do seem very smart
I hope things turn out alrite for her
