Willow Smith Reveals Why She Felt “Unsafe” In Her Music Career

Published: Saturday 31st Jul 2021 by Ryan

Willow Smith is getting candid.

During an appearance ‘The Yungblud Podcast,’ the ‘Transparent Soul’ songstress opened up about the struggles she has faced in her career and how they came off as “bratty.”

Her words below…

“For so long, I had a lot of fear. I felt extremely unsafe in my music career in the past and that feeling of insecurity or unsafety, like I didn’t feel protected, which went really deep. It’s interesting because all of those memories and emotions have just been resurfacing.”

She then went on to discuss her recent performance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ and the anxiety surrounding it, saying:

“I had like a flashback of being like 10 or 9 and having like an anxiety attack on set and basically feeling like everyone around me was like ‘You’re just a brat.’ ‘Why aren’t you grateful? They didn’t see it as an anxiety attack — they saw it as a tantrum, and now I look back and know it was an anxiety attack.”

Smith recently released her first endeavor into punk-pop with her ‘Lately I Feel Everything’ studio album (stream it here). The project featured icons such as Travis Barker of Blink-182 fame and Avril Lavigne.

    Everyone is not meant to be a star and in the spotlight.

    I’m sorry.

    Willow go get an education and live off your family’s riches.

    She just like her whole family say ANYTHING to try to sound all deep..girl bye! Just say you was young and tired and stop trying to make it seem like you just been through sooooo much 🙄

    She was a child, not a star. Instead of trying to record an album, she should’ve been having the pre-t*** and teenage experience with her peers. She wasn’t ready or mature enough to have an adult career. Her parents misguided her & fckud her up.

    Everything feels a little cliche with this era, from the image to the sound. I feel like she’s still trying to figure out who she is artistically.

    The costumes are a distraction! Rock/pop artists don’t dress like that anymore unless it’s for a magazine cover or brand modeling. 🙄
