Will Smith’s Kids Are Better Than You – Especially Willow, With Her Single “Whip My Hair”

The Golden Smith Children at the BET Awards this summer

It must be hard being the child of a celebrity, always trying to live up to your parents’ accomplishments.  Having to make tough daily decisions like which pair of Prada flats you’re going to wear.  How you’re going to spend your monthly allowance;  hmmmm…the new Range Rovers look nice.  Or, you could follow in your parents’ golden footsteps and take advantage of their fame.

Will Smith and his "babies", a couple of years back...

Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada,  just released her first single, Whip My Hair;  while it’s no Parents Just Don’t Understand, or even Gettin Jiggy Wit It, but it does sound good.  She has the swagger (yes, swagger) of someone three times her age, and I think she has the attitude to pull it off.  Wow, when I was 9 years old I was trying to get Mario over the flagpole.

So while she is whippin’ the hair on her half shaved head, her brother, Jaden is having dance battles with Justin Bieber.  So, things like this really happen outside of teen movies? After his concert at Madison Square Garden, The Bieb challenged Jaden to a MJ style dance off at Lucky Strike Lanes, which reportedly, Jaden won.  This was all (conveniently) filmed for his documentary.  Justin and Jaden worked together on a song for the soundtrack to his movie, The Karate Kid. Ah, the life of a child star!

So say what you will about these two, and you will, but they’re making waves.  I know a lot of people feel like they’re only famous because of their parents, and that’s partly true, but they are pretty talented. I do feel like this is more Jada’s doing than Will’s. Will’s older son, Trey, said that he had no interest in acting or music and chooses to focus on his football career. He did appear in his dad’s music video for Just The Two Of Us and appeared on the show the couple produced, All Of Us, along with Jaden when they were younger. Willow co-starred with her dad in I Am Legend, and occasionally appears on True Jackson, VP, as the younger version of the show’s star.  I think when they are older they will step out of on their own and not just be known as Will and Jada’s kids.

It obviously doesn’t suck to be a Smith though.   How long til we get to hear Suri Cruise’s concept album?

Ke$ha is an auto-tuned horseface.

If you smile, you might get a carrot. To EAT, dirty girl. Gyaaah.

I know.  I can’t believe I’m writing about this chick, either.  However, after seeing her lame ass on American Idol the other night I must say, she was bloody awful.  (Say that like Simon would.)

This thing called Ke$ha had the nerve to say THIS about Miss Britney Jean Spears:

“I don’t think that’s fair at all for people who are going to see the show. I think if you are going to be a singer, you should sing. If you are going to be a dancer, you should dance. If you are going to do a combination of the two, you should make it very clear when you are singing and very clear when you are dancing. I would never do that to my fans. No offense to her specifically but people have asked me before to mime. I have been up at three in the morning for a television show with jet lag but I refuse to mime. It’s treating people as if they are too stupid to realize you are not actually singing. Sometimes it is hard to sing and dance at the same time but I would rather be off and be real and genuine about it to my fans. I don’t want to treat my fans like they are stupid.”

Hey Ke$ha?  Read THIS.

Pitch correction software specifically for vocals that makes up for a lack of natural singing talent. 90% or more of all “professional” recordings use this software.
An extreme example is that horrific Cher song from a few years back, and the Kid Rock song where is voice is all fucked up. Used in moderation it can hardly be heard except by a trained ear.
Remember before autotune, when singers could actually sing?


Man, that chick sings so bad not even autotune can fix it.

God, she’s stupid. Here’s a little “Tik Tok” parody that made me smile.

Katy Perry just can’t sing live, but she’s got great boobs.

Atta girl, Katy. Show us what REALLY matters! Titties!!

Yikes.  Someone needs a vocal coach…like NOW, if she really plans on not lip-synching.  Katy Perry, the pretty little gal with the slammin’ body who just married former sex-addict (?) Russell Brand is so disappointing to hear when she sings live. (Understatement, much?)

Let’s see how long you can sit through this mess from the BBC Teen Awards:


It really does go to show that being a hot chick with a great rack, the best producers, auto-tune and rubber dresses can make you a STAR, Baby!

Help a girl out and SING, because Lawd knows she can't. Yeah, I said it.
