The Smith family which includes 11-year old daughter Willow Smith, Jaden Smith, Trey and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are once again under attack. Jada and Will have long fended off the criticism of fans who believe the parents were either pimping or allowing their children too much freedom. Namely Willow who’s been spotted for the past few months with a new hair color every week and interesting fashion choices. Jada said recently after Willow first cut her hair,
“I can’t even be upset in any form but I want to tell you what I feel we, as women in general, must do. We have to understand that we should at all times, have the right and the power to make decisions about our bodies. And that is an idea that must be taught at a young age. You can’t wait until a person is 18 years old and say ‘now you have the right’. You have to start that form the gate. So what I am trying to show Willow, is that it’s her hair. I might not want her to cut it, but guess what? It’s not mine. And at the end of the day it’s not for me to make that choice for her. So I need her to be empowered now, with that. At the end of the day, it’s hair.”
Father Will added in another interview,
“She has got to have command of her body,” the father of three told the publication. “So when she goes out into the world, she’s going out with a command that it is hers.”
So why is everyone up in alms? Willow tweeted a photo with a tongue ring! Twitter was lit on fire!
“Something’s gotta give sooner or later.”
“I hope this is fake,” said another.
What do you make of Willow Smith’s tongue ring and her parents’ parenting stye?
Update: Willow Smith posted on Twitter: “It’s fake….Sorry”. No need to apologize.
