Being the product of two wildly successful artists, constantly scrutinized in the media, does not change the role of Willow Smith.
Born to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow has known fame all her life.
The “Meet Me At Our Spot” singer is a freelance musician, as is her older brother, Jaden Smith.
In March, her father burst onto the Academy Awards scene after he challenged the playful comedian Chris Rock, who broke down at Jada’s expense. Will slapped the comedian, returned to his seat, and yelled, “Don’t let my wife’s name out of your mouth.”

The Smith and Rock families have mostly stayed mom since the incident, offering short comments or telling short jokes.
Rock is reportedly not interested in a courtesy exchange with Smith.
In a new interview with Billboard, Willow says the infamous cheek “didn’t shake me as much as my own inner demons.”
Willow was quick to defend her father.

“I can tell you all, there is no part of me that thinks that is the right way to act at this point,” said the star “Men In Black”. “No part of me thinks that this is the best way to deal with feelings of disrespect or insults.”
One of Smith’s sons had apparently posted his opinion on the cheek, moving to Twitter hours after it happened.

“I hate it when I let people down,” noted Smith in his apologetic video:
