Willow Smith is turning ten years old at the end of the month, and she’s already done more with her life than we ever will. Sure, we never really expected much from ourselves, but Willow, with her hit song, killer wardrobe and legions of fans, is putting even some of the top players in the game in the “Loser” file right beside us. Good looking out, kid!
Justin Bieber may be self-made (remember, this kid is a product of YouTube), but homeboy is sixteen years old. That’s practically geriatric compared to Miss Willow, and none of his songs have been across-the-board favorites like “Whip My Hair” has, let alone within a month of their release. Sorry, Justin. You should have started in the womb.
Britney’s been at it since she was Willow’s age, but despite showing promise as a young Mouseketeer, it wasn’t until she was in her late teens that she truly hit her stride as a performer. What can we take from this? Even Britney Spears isn’t a natural compared to the youngest member of the Pinkett-Smith clan, whose first music video makes “…Baby One More Time” look like amateur hour.
The way “Whip My Hair” is performed makes it sound like it was originally written for Rihanna, just the way Nicki Minaj’s “Saxon” was. We actually would put money on the fact that the jam was written with our Island Princess in mind. But that ain’t her singing it! It’s a girl a decade younger than her with a voice that sounds nearly as mature. Whoops.
For a minute there it was looking like Will and Jayda’s son, Jayden was going to be the star of the family. He received critical acclaim for his performance in his father’s movie The Pursuit of Happyness, but after this summer’s crappy Karate Kid reboot, it’s about time that JayJay accept his role as the least talented member of his family.
Let’s face it, the little dude or dudette that you’re responsible for bringing into the world is seeming a hell of a lot less magical now that you realize they could have been paying your mortgage all these years. Don’t worry. They can be Willow for Halloween.
