Looking at a list of 10-year-old Willow Smith’s accomplishments can make a person feel downright lazy. She’s already scored a hit single with Whip My Hair, has a recording contract with Jay-Z’s label, and it looks like she’ll eventually follow brother Jaden into a movie career.
So it’s easy to assume that this ambitious daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith would be your typical spoiled child star. Not so. “I can’t do whatever I want,” Willow says. “Mommy has to say it’s okay.”
And this is one kid who is quick to give credit to her biggest supporters – her parents. “Mommy and Daddy inspired me to be a performer,” Willow says. “I get my flow from Daddy, my singing ability from Mommy, and the camera stuff from both. That’s just what happens when you hang out with the Smiths!”
