Willow Smith both shocked and horrified her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, on their latest episode of their Facebook talk show, “Red Table Talk.” The episode focused on loss, and when Jada asked Willow what her biggest loss was, her answer surprised everyone.
Willow responded that her greatest lost was her sanity after her song, “Whip My Hair”, became a hit back in 2010. She added, “It was after that whole ‘Whip My Hair’ thing and I had just stopped doing singing lessons and I was kind of just in this gray area of, ‘Who am I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything I can do besides this?’ ”
Willow says of her 10-year-old self. “After the tour and the promotion and all of that, they wanted me to finish my album,” she continues. “And I was like, I’m not gonna do that. And after all of that kinda settled down and it was like a kind of lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music. It was just so crazy and I was plunged into this black hole, and I was cutting myself.” Jada and Adrienne expressed shock and dismay.
