Singer Willow Smith rose to fame 2010 with the release of her hit single, “Whip My Hair.” The song introduced Smith – who had previously only been known as the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett -as a feisty young artist who had the potential to carve out a place for herself in the music industry. Although her debut was well received, Smith’s strange antics, unusual style of dress, and off-the-wall interview responses left the public feeling shocked and confused – some even questioning Will and Jada’s parenting skills. But, even after receiving criticism from the public, Smith has proven that she is not bothered by what other people think or have to say about her. Although she is just 14 years-old, Willow seems to have more confidence than people twice her age. Due to her unique style level of maturity, it can be hard to believe that Smith was once just a normal little kid. Here are five of the cutest Willow Smith Instagram throwback pictures.
