Willow Smith Began Cutting Herself After Whip My Hair Fame


Willow Smith speaks candidly about her struggle with self harming following the success of her hit single 'Whip My Hair...'

During a segment of Jada Pinkett Smith's 'Red Table Talk' on Facebook Willow admits,
“I would have to say — honestly I feel like I lost my sanity at one point. It was after that whole ‘Whip My Hair’ thing and I had just stopped doing singing lessons and I was kind of like, just in this gray area of, ‘Who am I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything, like, I can do besides this?’”
“After the tour and the promotion and all of that, they wanted me to finish my album. And I was like — I’m not gonna do that. And after all of that kinda settled down and it was like a kind of lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music, and it was just so crazy and I was just like plunged into this black hole, and I was, like, cutting myself.”
“I never talk about it because it was such a short weird point in my life, but you have to pull yourself … out of it. I honestly felt like I was experiencing so much emotional pain, but my physical circumstances weren’t reflecting that.”


Clearly Jada was not aware and taken off guard by Willows confession.

Not buying it. And if it is true, I am giving Jada MAJOR side. How do you not know that is happening on your 10 year old daughter's wrist???? But like I said I dont buy it.

When will she spill the real tea about her homosexuality?

Y'all are some inconsiderate asswipes. Try walking a day in her shoes. I can't fathom living her life. But here's my issue with these comments, not one of them has any positivity to it. Everyone has an opinion but no one can offer a solution. She's the kid of a mega superstar and although she may "have it all", sometimes, that's too much.

The Smiths were rotten parents

Jada looks like familiar, like I've seen her new face on someone else's face before. I'm really trying to figure out who's face she has now.

She needs to be in school 9:43 not roaming doing nothing. Now that she lived, she can start going to school to learn something and then be productive in the real world.

As much as Will Smith talked about education, ettiquette and grammar...I'm really shocked that them 2 kids are not in school or Africa (philanthropy).
Not every child of a mega celebrity have to deal with family pressure. It's only these celebrity kids that have no goals of their own except to live in their parent(s) light.....
FOH. Them kids supposed to be Lawyers, Doctors & business execs...why would any successful celebrity want their kid(s) in this weirdo Hollywood shit knowing they don't have talent

Please ... you expect someone to get on this "poor, poor, pitiful me" bandwagon? The only thing she's offering are her own personal stories. No, I cannot get with her dating a married man or having a daughter who cuts herself after failing as a rock star.

If she wants my attention then let's discuss the need for more black people in the board rooms, or how black people enjoy shopping online because we're treated like shit in the stores, or how to get organic foods in lower-income neighborhoods, gentrification. .... so many things to discuss, but all she can come up with is this mess.

Never in my life have I ever heard a black girl talk about this white people shit.

Lies..Lies and more lies ! This whole shit is poppycock,and WHY doesn't Jada's face move ? Her mom looks younger and fresher than her. And yes those children need to be in school,at least finish high school. That should be a right of passage for all.

So Black girls cutting themselves is a thing now? You learn something everyday

If true, this is so sad because (1) Jada didn’t know and (2) Will and Jada were both pushing her into that life after the Whip My Hair. They even admitted Willow had to tell them to give her a break and she pulled herself out of that Annie movie.

How uninvolved as a parent can you be to miss the signs that your child is falling apart???

Pitiful.

AGREED @9:43...We don't understand that if MONEY/FINANACES is not an issue SOEMTHING WILL BE because we're human and our nature is to never be satisfied. Imagine growing up with Will and Jada as parents??? Living up to that alone is pressure. White people shit to you because we're still focused in "getting our money right" that's not their issue. So yeah cutting herself could have happened, if it didn't why say it? They don't REALLY need this little facebook show...Will Smith is still her father he STILL has money...so tell me why she gotta lie?

Jeremiah 29:11 said...

That is a real problem for me when Willow said she was cutting and Jada said she did not know her own daughter was "cutting" My next thought is did Will know Willow was "cutting" Praying for her and the entire Smith family

When you aren't educated properly and have nothing but free time on your hands your purpose in life will become questionable.

Jada is a Witch and a bad one at that.

The only Smith child that is sane is Trey. Trey is going to be okay. Jada has screwed Willow and Jaden up.

Why in the hell is Jada so thirsty for attention now? Is it because she's not really getting any agent calls for parts?

The only family members left to come on this bullshit ia Will and the batman wearing suit to a wedding, the earth is flat talking boy.

I guess after that is Latifah talking about her mom's passing and Vivica talking bout a dude she dated over a decade ago.

Jada get some rich bitch friends and just do the brunch/shopping thing. Oh and tmz is ALWAYS at LAX.
Her need for a camera on her at all times is exhausting!Kris Jenner, Betthany Frankel and others have failed at talk show hosts and you will too.

Just an observation said...

I can believe this. She was really excited and loved the positive attention. She wanted to see the reaction she was getting on YouTube but her dad told her not to read the comments. Needless to say, she read the comments and that sweet innocence was gone. Reality set in hard. People were really mean for no reason. They aren't regular kids as much as black folks like to pretend they are.
