Whip My Hair – Willow Smith
If you have had a chance to pay attention to any of the many musical outlets there are in the world today, you would be well aware of a young talent that just burst out into the scene. Her name is Willow Smith, she is currently nine years old and she has a single out “Whip My Hair” that has all the grown ups going crazy. If her name sounds familiar that is probably because she is a daughter of a well known musician – actor Will Smith. Her single “Whip My Hair” has been leaked on September 7th, 2010 and the response has been overwhelming. She is currently signed with Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation, no word on the full album yet but I am sure this girl has her whole childhood already planned out.
Even though I do admire such young artists and their talent, I can’t help but feel sorry for them. Even if Willow goes on selling millions of records and securing her future as a millionaire, there is a really good chance she will never know what a normal teenage life is. Who’s to blame? Parents I think. I don’t understand why already millionare parents want to steal their child’s normal teenage years and throw their daughter into the cut throat music business at the age of nine. That just seems greedy and careless to me. What do you think?
