In an emotional new interview for Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith’s new conversation series Red Table Talk, daughter Willow Smith explains she regrets being famous and hardly feels like a regular girl anymore.
As the daughter of one of famous Hollywood couple Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, and with a budding pop career of her own, Willow Smith admitted that she’s struggling with the intense pressures of the public eye.
“If I could change one thing about my life, it would probably be I wouldn’t be famous,” says 11-year-old Willow Smith.
The young pop star added that being in the limelight has made it difficult for her to get around. “Let’s say if a regular girl is going to the book store, it’s ten times harder to go everywhere [when you’re famous]…it’s going to take me ten more minutes to get there. Because I have to call security.”
Willow, however, did explain that her fame can also be a blessing: “It’s not like I can’t reverse being famous…but if there’s a problem in the world, then more people will listen to me.”
The interview was part of an extremely candid and powerful conversation with her mother Jada Pinkett-Smith, and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Jones.
