For young Willow Smith, fame was always going to be unavoidable.
The only daughter of Pop culture icon Will Smith and his wife Jada, the last two years have seen the star launch a career of her own- trying her hand at Pop music.
However, despite the fact that she’s generally well received, she has revealed she does enjoy her notoriety during a ‘Red Table Talk‘.
If I could change one thing about my life, it would probably be I wouldn’t be famous.
While we’re all for Willow and her music, we’d be lying if we said her ‘set up’ made sense.
For, at 9 years old (she’s 11 now) how does one decide want they to be, and truly understand the implications behind it.
Yes, while we don’t doubt her capabilities as a Pop act, where does the hoo-ha that comes with the touring, promoting and making movies leave room a real education and growth outside of a publicist, outside of the pandemonium most adults have trouble dealing with.
Indeed, despite the insinuation that she regularly visits a tutor, what of the lessons money can’t buy- like studying for a paper with friends, being able to party without fifty minders circling the premises, meeting people who are interested in you for you and not what your fame can offer.
Either way, here’s hoping Willow proves her critics wrong and grows us to be as level headed as her parents who seem to have everything under control.
But what do you think?
