Willow Smith has always made quite a statement being the youngest child of Jada Pinkett and Will Smith. From her quirky hairstyles to her couture sense of fashion, the back-and-forth hair-slinging kid has never been shy of cameras. In fact, her tenacious personality and eclectic style has landed her a number of acting roles and a No. 1 single, giving her an estimated net worth of $4 million, as reported in 2011.
Aside from having two extremely famous parents, Willow made her way to the spotlight in 2007 when she stepped foot on the big screen alongside her dad in I Am Legend. Shortly after, the shaved-haired kid appeared in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (2008) and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008). Quickly following in the footsteps of her fatherâ€”releasing multiple projects in one yearâ€”Willow also made an appearance on Merry Madagascar (2009), a TV short spin-off from the Madagascar series, and obtained a reoccurring role on Nickelodeonâ€™s True Jackson, VP. But her acting skills arenâ€™t the only talent to catch the public eye.
Just like her father, music was a passion Willow couldnâ€™t ignore. In 2010, the Hollywood legacy released her first single, â€œWhip My Hair.â€ The song was so popular it had adults whipping their weaves in the club, and made its way onto 25 of Billboardâ€™s charts including the Rhythmic Top 40 and Pop 100 charts.
