Oh and fuck you hard about hating on Willow Smith.
Willow Smith is the idol of my daughter. My tiny, brown 9 year old’s female idols are Britney and Willow.
Willow is a child of color who is empowered to look how she wishes, speak her mind, and has supportive parents who have no intention on censuring her because she doesn’t embrace any female child tropes; as a Hollywood performer or in the universe. She wants to cut off her mohawk and study ballet, she does. She wants to rock wackadoodle-matched shoes and leggings, she does. And who are you to judge a girl who sends the epic message to other little girls, to humanity, that one’s self expression is your personal legacy?
Oh and I dare you to not dance your ass off to her music, too.
If there is ANYONE that sparks (heh, the puns…) the soul of my daughter, it is gift from Jeebus it is Willow Smith.
