Whip My Hair Page 1
We’ve reported on our fair share of “Whip My Hair” videos, but the good people over at PopEater did us one better by sitting down with Willow Smith herself and getting the scoop on what she thinks about her host of imitators. The interview is a bit stilted, but Willow looks awesome with her bob and green rattail (yes, we are actually endorsing a rattail).
2010 was officially the year that adults everywhere were outdone by kids who weren’t even old enough to go to high school. Willow Smith definitely had something to do with this minor revolution (punny!), inspiring the tween set to do their own thing and, yes, whip their hair. One girl is doing just that…on ice!
It’s hard to believe it’s been two whole months since Willow Smith‘s “Whip My Hair” took over our lives. We were instantly captivated by the girl power anthem, but it was really Willow’s amazing video that made us downright fanatical. Those clothes and that hair and that SWAGGER. Oh, that swagger. And because “Whip My Hair” is the gift that keeps on giving, we now get to take a behind-the-scenes look at the magic that went into the video.
It was only a matter of time before the “Whip My Hair” covers started rolling in, but this acoustic and decidedly bluesy version by 17-year-old Katie Gavin may in fact be better than the original. Sacrilege, we know! But you should hear this girl sing.
Willow Smith’s girl power anthem “Whip My Hair” is well on its way to becoming an American classic, and last night’s duet by Jimmy Fallon (as Neil Young) and Bruce Springsteen only furthered the cause.
Happy Friday, everyone! In lieu of actual Willow Smith news, we’d like to offer you this video of a cockatoo dancing to “Whip My Hair.” Because nothing says “club hit” like a tropical bird’s on beat bounce.
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.)
Okay, so we’re a little obsessed with Willow Smith — but we’re so not alone. The 10-year-old daughter of Jada Pinkett and Will Smith hasn’t even released a video for her first single, “Whip My Hair”, but she’s already inspired legions of fans and lookalikes — including one group of young girls who put together and memorized a sick dance routine to her song.
