Swagger. Willow Smith has swagger. And the official video for her song “Whip My Hair” is the swaggeriest (not a word but whatever). We literally can’t stop watching it. (It’s even better than the choreographed dance video made by those adorable girls.)
The girl is a fashion icon in the making, and this video makes that quite apparent. The CLOTHES! The MAKEUP! The NAILS! And, my god, the HAIR! Willow certainly doesn’t compromise any of her outrageous style in what may be our favorite music video of the year.
The video takes place in a school, but it couldn’t be more different than Britney Spears’s infamous schoolgirl vid. Willow alternately dips her hair in paint, whips it around and looks amazing. There’s some dancing (by Willow, her fly girls and even a baby), and there’s lots and lots ‘tude. Seriously, she makes us want to scream “Girl power!” in a totally nonironic way.
Though this masterpiece has been disabled (twice!), we found another version for your viewing pleasure and (in case it gets disabled again) have some screenshots of Willow’s many looks.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
And as a bonus treat, here is “Whip My Hair” mashed up with Sesame Street’s “I Love My Hair”:
