Well, Teen Vogue sure does.
The magazine made 15-year-old Willow Smith the cover girl for “The Global Issue” with the tagline, “Starring the coolest girl in the galaxy.” Pressure, much?
It’s no secret that Smith is a confident young girl, who knows what she wants and isn’t focused on conforming to the norm. But, in what the mag describes as an “insane” interview, Will Smith’s youngest child opens up about a time she felt “less empowered”.
“After ‘Whip My Hair’ and all the publicity, after going on tour in the U.K., after saying no to the Annie film, all of this crap was going on in my life, and I had to sit down and say, ‘Who are you? On a real note. Are you this or this?’ During that time of figuring it out, I was lost and super insecure. But then I stopped trying to find myself in these other inanimate objects, people, and ideas. I realized it isn’t about finding yourself—it’s about creating yourself.”
Well, that’s deep, now isn’t it?
