Willow Smith, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter, expresses the world through her own Technicolor eyes, sharing the art and literature she loves on her Instagram. In between expressing her aesthetic and being a popular musician, Smith peppers her extraordinary feed with some ordinary reminders that she’s still a 17-year-old girl who loves to hang out with her friends and brother Jaden when she’s not taking over the world.
“At the end of the day nothing else matters except connection and communication in all forms. Every single one of us is infinitely deserving of all the love in this world,” says Willow in her Instagram post.
At the end of the day nothing else matters except connection and communication in all forms // Every single one of us is infinitely deserving of all the love in this world // The logistical aspects of expressing yourself are only tools to help the connection and communication be more potent // I have realized that I have to get out of my head and shed this idea that the only way I can be deserving of so many blessings and resources to inspire others is through the acquisition of virtuosic skill and intellect in order to reach a certain level of inner peace that only begets the reformation of toxic paradigms // Therefore giving back the blessing to the world // Thank you to all the human souls holding space to just relish in the beauty of EXISTENCE // photo by <@adiadinayev>
Willow made her acting debut in I Am Legend alongside her father. Her next film, Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, was released on July 2, 2008. In 2008, she voiced the character of young Gloria in Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, alongside her mother as older Gloria.
In June 2009, Smith’s mother Jada Pinkett Smith announced in an interview on Lopez Tonight that Smith would be releasing an album. Smith then released her first single, “Whip My Hair”, which went platinum in the US and peaked at number 11. In the UK the single peaked at number two. Smith soon after announced her next single, “21st Century Girl”. And we could go on …
Seems like Willow is one busy young girl, whose star will shine brightly.
