Willow Smith - Whip My Hair


For her age she's certainly got star quality and is a disturbingly confident performer.  But I can't help but feel that's more the result of clearly the pushiest parents in showbiz.  SHE'S TEN.  Surely this song is evidence of todays celebrity focused culture reaching younger depths?  I don't think she's as musically talented as people seem to be making out.  SHE'S TEN.  Instead it's down to the producers for creating a track that is simultaneously annoyingly catchy and weirdly quite cool.  Take note Justin Bieber.  I just feel a bit sick watching the video, in the same way that American child beauty pageants are repulsive.  SHE'S TEN.  Yet despite the fairly adult styling (she looks like a younger Rihanna) and lines such as "all my ladies" (SHE'S TEN), it somehow strangely works and Whip My Hair is quite a good party track.

Still, SHE'S TEN.  Shouldn't she be in school?
