Willow Smith Reveals Christmas Wishes, Says She Hopes to ‘Grow’ as an Artist
Willow Smith keeps astounding us. Not only is the petite pop star a fierce rhymer and dancer, she’s also wise way beyond her 11 years — but she’s still a kid, and acts like it, in most ways.
In a testament to her youth — and her adorableness — the ‘Fireball‘ firecracker revealed to MTV’s Buzzworthy that her favorite YouTube video is one called ‘Stepping on the Beach.’ It’s a mash up of LMFAO‘s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and … Sponge Bob Squarepants. After watching it, we dig it too!
Smith dished on her ‘Fireball’ feature act, Nicki Minaj. “She didn’t really give me any advice, but we hung out and it was awesome,” Smith said. “She’s a great artist.”
As for her ubiquitous breakout hit, ‘Whip My Hair,’ and its subsequent dance craze, Smith remains both humble and entertained. “I’m not really sick of people whipping their hair,” she smiled. “It doesn’t really get old. They’re fans and I love them! It’s just a fun game to play.” However, when asked if her ‘Whip My Hair’ style going to stick with her throughout her career? Not so much. “Five years from now I’ll probably be doing more alternative,” Smith revealed. “Kind of let go of the pop and kind of grow into more deep realm of art.”
Being as grounded as she is, as the youngest Smith, does Willow have to do chores at home? “I have a lot of school [work] to do, and I’m working and all that stuff,” she mused. “The only chore they really give me to do is to take care of my dog (I miss her!). And that’s pretty much it.” Fair enough — that choreography looks much harder than cleaning our rooms or taking out the trash (though, it also looks much more fun, too).
And now for the moment that will make you realize an 11-year-old is more mature than you are, Smith was asked what her Christmas wish is. “I have everything that I would possibly imagine,” she said emphatically. “I have a family that loves me and that’s more than most kids have, and it’s just really awesome for me to be able to experience this life and to have this life,” she said. “Most kids don’t have this life, and I’m trying to reach out to those kids and help them.” Based on her track record, it looks like she’ll end up on the nice list and earn some gifts anyway.
