Willow Smith is most known for her daring style and creativity, and has been blessed to have the freedom to express herself a little bit more than the average 11 yeard old girl. Recently she posted a picture on her Instagram account of her with a friend, and she’s wearing a tongue ring! The good new is that after receiving a bunch of backlash over their daughters tongue ring, Jada Pinkett soon revealed the tongue ring was a fake body piercing. The bad news is that there is an 11 year old in this world that doesnt know its fake. About a month ago father Will Smith spoke to Parade Magazine and explained why they allow Willow to express herself in whatever way she sees fit.
“When you have a little girl, it’s like how can you teach her that you’re in control of her body? If I teach her that I’m in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she’s going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world. She has got to have command of her body. So when she goes out into the world, she’s going out with a command that it is hers. She is used to making those decisions herself. We try to keep giving them those decisions until they can hold the full weight of their lives.”
I defiantly understand what Will is saying, but how much freedom do you give an 11 year old? What do you think? Check out the photo of little Willow and her friend with their piercings below
