Will Smith Explains Willow's Hair

Some in the media and general public have been critical of young Willow Smith and ever-changing look. The pint-sized pop star has shaved her hair, dyed it green and donned various other eye-catching looks, and her poppa Will Smith defended his daughter and he and Jada Pinkett-Smith's decision to let their daughter find her own look and find her own way.
"We let Willow cut her hair. When you have a little girl, it’s like how can you teach her that you’re in control of her body?" Will says. "If I teach her that I’m in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she’s going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world. She can’t cut my hair but that’s her hair. She has got to have command of her body. So when she goes out into the world, she’s going out with a command that it is hers. She is used to making those decisions herself. We try to keep giving them those decisions until they can hold the full weight of their lives.”
