New video (watch it below) has surfaced of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s life-sized, 9-year-old promotional doll, Willow Smith, singing her first single, “Whip My Hair.” She’s named after her father, and her brother Jaden’s named after their mother! He’s following in the family footprints as an actor, and she’s doing it as a singer! Analysts say the Smiths have already the most marketing synergy of any Hollywood family. They’re a publicist’s dream! Other reactions from around the twatt-o-sphere:
Solange Knowles has co-signed on the track, tweeting, “Willow Smith make me wanna whip some haiiirrr in this house. Ummm kill em girl. Kill em!”
Willow is also drawing the attention of Bieber’s camp. On Tuesday, Justin’s video director Alfredo Flores tweeted, “WHAT!!??! Willow Smith just KILLED “Whip My Hair”… Rihanna, Keri, Ciara, Ashanti – please be warned.”
Brandy jumped onboard too. “OK, these lil Smith kids are AMAZING!!” the singer tweeted. “I whip my hair back and forth… Ms Willow is not to be played with!!” [MTV]
Haha, who would let a nine year old “play” anyway, amirite? I heard she learned to dance barefoot on a really hot floor. “Sometimes kids just need that extra little push!” the stars gushed on Dr. Phil’s “Parenting Spectular” episode.
