Willow Smith presented a more mature look with her parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith at Black Girls Rock! over the weekend.
Willow showed love and support to Jada as she took home the Stellar Star Award. Rocking an all-gray ensemble, the 14-year-old stood in the audience as Will presented Jada with the coveted award. He also dismissed rumors that the couple was headed towards a divorce.
He said, “In that brief moment my heart jumped for a second and I started to imagine what my life would have been like without that woman.”
During her acceptance speech, Jada sent love to young Black women and spoke on their progression.
When Pinkett Smith took to the stage to accept the accolade, she encouraged young Black women to be aware of their own strength, saying, “I need you to understand that we are the women who marched from cotton fields into fields of medicine… politics… entertainment. We have found a way to march into a White House.”
But back to Willow, doesn’t she look fierce?
They’re just all really happy to be here.
When it comes to her music, the teen has strayed away from pop synths (a la “Whip My Hair”) and into uncharted R&B territory with the spacey tune “‘H.E.A.R.T.”
Listen to her melodic tunes here on Soundcloud and check out Black Girls Rock! when it airs on BET April 5.
