Willow Smith

She grew up watching mom Jada Pinkett Smith rock out on stages across the country with her band Wicked Wisdom while dad Will Smith, who released his first rap album at 20, starred in big-screen blockbusters each summer. Now 9 years old, Willow Smith is ready for her own shot at superstardom. The talented pre-teen recently released the infectious dance track “Whip My Hair” -- a high-energy song that she describes as being about “having fun.” The tune (and its highly addictive music video!) quickly became an Internet sensation, and within days, the sassy starlet -- whose edgy and eclectic style has been compared to pop star Rihanna -- signed a record deal with Jay-Z.
