Willow Smith is 12 Years Old and Writing Songs About Love -- What's Wrong With This Picture Besides Everything?

7/9/2013 8:00 AM PDT, by


Well, wait, no -- there's a more accurate way of putting that, truth be told. Willow Smith is only 12 years old and even though her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, claimed that she was quitting music just recently to focus on being a 12-year-old, Willow's gone and released a single called "Summer Fling," because yes, 12-year-old girls should be worried about having flings in the summertime, and not playing Nintendo, eating copious amounts of garbage food behind their parents' backs, and planning epic sleepover parties (which absolutely, positively, do not include boys).  

Other things that are completely wrong about this video? Well, here's a list:

  1. Why is Willow Smith hanging out with so many dudes, some of who look like they're 30 years old? Are they friends of her dad, Will? Sure hope so, otherwise somebody's got some explaining to do. 
  2. The fake Brit accent. It's cute, because a 12-year-old's doing it, but it's not so cute when it's encouraged to be "adult" and "sultry," because come on -- girl's 12 years old, FFS. 
  3.  She sings about walking on the beach hand in hand at midnight. MIDNIGHT. Wouldn't you have been killed for something like that at 12 years old?
  4. "Goodnight kiss 'til the mood is right." OH MAN. 
  5. She talks about saying, "I love you" to her "boyfriend," who is definitely more toward the 30 range than he is the 12 range. 
  6. Also. The very end. Where everybody's standing around in a circle, holding sparklers. Now that's just an unsafe practice, man. 
Who really knows who's signing off on Willow's creative decisions these days (but ha, of course we know -- it's the parents who say that they're gonna let their kids run their lives the way they want), but one thing is certain -- this might even be worse than a 15-year-old girl posting voluptuous bikini shots on the Internet. At least she's probably already gone through puberty in its entirety.

staaaaahhpppppp. when i was 12 i was playing baseball and kickball with the boys thats about it!! NO summer flings... if we "dated" we only held hands IF that LOL. i really hope this song was made just to get the attention of older teens, not lil 12 yr olds giving them the idea that this is appropriate behavior.

She's twelve. TWELVE. That is so messed up... kids these days stop being kids when they're about ten, it seems. They want to grow up so fast but they have no idea what they're missing.

The work is fabulous and the music is great. It is wonderful that she has a chance to express herself like this at 12 years. Adults think that theirs is the only universe that means anything and they could not be wronger. If you think your 12 -16 year olds are not talking about sex (hard core) or watching porn then you are living on another planet. It's this kind of exposure that enables them to mature. If their parents would only talk to them, it would help them even more. Kids today have enormous freedom of access to information outside the parents influence, and they are accessing it. Give them a break; get involved.

We did have flings back in the day. We flung water balloons at each other in the summer sun. Occasionally dirt clods would fly as well. Then you got your butt home before the sun set.

first of all the older guy in the white in her video is her older brother will has a older son and second both of her brothers are in the video why yes she is 12 but willow has always seemed older then her age and its just a fun song for the summertime and i think that will and jada are doing a good job as parents let your children be who they want willow is over the top with everything but she is also a sweet young lady who will soon be a teenager who just so happens to like boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

kids trying to be adults is terrible, childhood doesn't last forever, so what memories are they creating of being a child...nothing

Hollywood parents such as Will & Jada Smith, Bruce & Kris Jenner are outright making poor decisions for their minor aged children. Take this video for instance, a Summer fling for a 12 year old! wrong, wrong, wrong! Willow Smith is 12 years old and they have her parading about in this video wearing booty shorts. At the 2:57 mark in the video the viewer is shown a slow motion shot of her 12 year old braless breasts bouncing obviously meant to show the viewer just that, this is absolutely wrong! Will & Jada should be ashamed of themselves, however, I doubt they are! They even included their soon in the video, he pops up at the 1:24 mark.

Yea, and we wonder why the stars children grow up dysfunctional? All the people on here that say its ok, im sure you would let your kid do the same. Where are your morals? Oh yea I forgot your excuse is "its a different time" This is the reason why kids of today are promiscuous,
follow the crowd. What happened to being a leader, it is OK to have morals just saying.

don't get me wrong, love Will Smith (not too fond of Jada) but this family needs to know when to stop! really annoying! if they want her to act like an "adult" , there are more positive ways to put her to work. plenty of real world issues they can expose her to. next thing you know, she's singing about cherries being popped at 13! Trust me, no one is going to care what Willow does, she wont achieve that level of fame. So to the Smiths, don't push her because all you are doing is hurting your child. and it will all be for nothing.

The whole video looks uh...awkward or uncomfortable. She doesn't even look comfortable in it. She looks like a little tomboy that should be shooting hoops or I don't know having a squirt gun fight. This may have worked for her in a few years but right now it doesn't come across well.
