Being the product of two wildly successful artists constantly scrutinized in the media does not put Willow Smith in phase.
Born to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow has enjoyed fame her entire 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 the stage at the Oscars after challenging a joke that comedian Chris Rock cracked at Jada’s expense. Will slapped the comedian, returned to his seat, and yelled, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.”
The Smith and Rock family have mostly remained mums since the incident, offering short comments or telling brief jokes.
Rock apparently not interested exchanging pleasantries with Smith.
In a new interview with Billboard, Willow says the infamous slap didn’t “shake me as much as my own internal demons did.”
Willow was quick to defend her father.
“I see all my the family as a human beingand I love and accept them for all their humanity,” the 21-year-old said.
“Because of the position we find ourselves in, our humanity is sometimes not accepted, and we are expected to act in ways that are not conducive to healthy human life and that do not is not conducive to honesty.”
His words mirror those of his father, who recently shared in a video his own thoughts on what happened.
“I can tell you all that there’s no part of me that thinks that was the right way to behave at that time,” the ‘Men In Black’ star said. “There’s no part of me that thinks that’s the best way to deal with feeling disrespected or insulted.”
One of Smith’s sons has apparently posted his opinion on the slap, go to twitter hours after it happened.
“I hate it when I let people down,” Smith noted in his apology video,
