Being the product of two wildly successful entertainers who are constantly under scrutiny in the media doesn’t matter to Willow Smith.
Born of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow has known fame throughout her life.
The “Meet Me At Our Spot” singer is an outspoken musician in her own right, along with her older brother, Jaden Smith.
In March, her father stormed onto the Oscars stage after disagreeing with a prank comedian Chris Rock cracked at Jada’s expense. Will slapped the comedian, walked back to his seat and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth.”

The Smith and Rock family have largely remained their mothers since the incident, making short comments or telling short jokes.
Rock is reportedly not interested in exchanging pleasantries with Smith.
In a new interview with Billboard, Willow says the infamous blow “didn’t shake me as much as my own internal demons.”
Willow was quick to defend her father.
“I see my whole family as a human being, and I love them and accept them for all their humanity,” the 21-year-old said.

“Because of the position we are in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted and we are expected to act in a way that is not conducive to healthy human life and not conducive to fairness.”
Her words echo those of her father, who recently shared his own reflections on what happened in a video.
“I can say to all of you that there isn’t a single part of me that thinks this was the right way to behave at the time,” said the “Men In Black” star. “There’s not a single part of me that thinks this is the optimal way to deal with a sense of disrespect or insults.”
One of Smith’s sons apparently posted his take on the blow hours after it happened on Twitter.

“I hate it when I disappoint people,” Smith noted in his apology video.
