People I’ve spoken to about Willow Smith usually have one of two opinions: 1) She was trained to be a mini-diva by her famous parents and she’s not all that great, or 2) Total amazement. I fall into the second group of people.
The photos and video from her Teen Vogue shoot are a prime example of how good she is at this whole showbiz thing. Her interview was smart and funny, she has a great grip on her personal style and she makes the camera her bitch.
We’ve seen a lot of celebrities have kids over the years, but few have produced a child with this much natural swagger, ambition and talent. It’s kind of scary to think that this ten year old girl is already so confident in her own skin. Whether she glides through puberty this effortlessly remains to be seen, but she still has the next two years or so to pad a nice little college fund for herself and burn the image of her face onto our brains.
What do you think of Willow Smith now that “Whip My Hair” fever has ceased? Do you think that she has what it takes to stick around?
