Lemon’s Team Pick:
I already loved Willow Smith. But honestly, what’s not to love? She’s an adorable, talented, fashionable and sophisticated 11-year-old, who likes bright colors almost as much as I do. But then she went and filmed this video for her charming new ballad “I Am Me” and my heart nearly exploded with feelings. I think what I love most about it is the fact that the lyrics are sweet and uncomplicated. It feels authentic. Like an 11-year-old kid talking to other 11-year-old kids. The song isn’t over produced either. It’s just Willow being Willow, you know?
Maybe I’m supposed to be over Willow Smith? I dunno, I’m 22 now. But, you guys, 11-year-old girls still need badass role models to look up to. Hell, I still need badass role models to look up to. What I’m saying is, in a world full of Taylor Swifts and Justin Biebers, I would rather my kid look up to someone more like Willow. Does that make sense? And this is just too cute:
Also, can we talk about her outfit/haircut/hat?
