I Am Free - Willow Smith
Interesting change for the young artist. Interesting message, overall I like the change in dynamic.
I really like this. I REALLY do.
what i don’t get is why people want to hate on her so much, or question her parents, her dress, her hair, etc.
i mean, look at her. look at how happy she is. look at how beautiful she is. look at her. isn’t this what we want for our children? isn’t this is what we wanted *as* children? is that what we want for our young Black women? our daughters, our sisters? isn’t this what we fight for? to be heard, to be open, to be honest?
to be free?
I feel like she was channeling Alanis. Great song. The fact that adults are quick to criticize, chastise and demean children for doing things that they couldn’t do or weren’t allowed to do is telling.
The existence of Willow Smith makes me cry with happy.
If people want anything OTHER than this for kids, then I don’t even know. Willow Smith is awesome.
For the commentary. Willow Smith is EVERYTHING!
Fear & jealousy seem to run through every criticism of her that I’ve been seeing because so far all she’s really done is be a quirky awkward young black girl exploring her options with the support of her family & friends.
let me just say as the mother of a five yearold lil black girl, this is one of the most adorable things i have seen in a long time. i cant even imagine not loving this. like i am trying to imagine the kind of people who could watch this video and not be grateful for its existence.
like you are going to hate on the intrinsic joy of being alive in the world?
