And her Warriorettes …
Friday, October 22, 2010 - 11:14
Nine year old Willow Smith has told MTV News about the meaning behind her huge anthem Whip My Hair.
The track has taken off this week as the video hit the internet. Speaking to our US team Will Smith’s daughter said:
“Whip My Hair means don't be afraid to be yourself, and don't let anybody tell you that that's wrong. Because the best thing is you.”
She also explained the concept for her video and revealed all about the gang that she dances with in the clip.
“Me and my mom first came up with Willowettes, and then we came up with Warriorettes," Willow said.
“It takes a warrior to stand up for themselves and not let anybody tell them that what they're wearing or what they're saying or what they're doing is wrong.”
She continued: “It takes a warrior to do that, but it still takes sensitivity… we just called them Warriorettes, 'cause that's the stuff that you need to do that.”
Smith is signed to Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s record label.
