Pint-Size Power; Willow Smith Steps Up.

Via on Oct 26, 2010

I’m psyched to see a tween being a tween and bringing a powerful message to the world. The lyrics may be a little repetitive, but heck, she’s nine! We could do a whole lot worse!

After a couple of years of having to explain terms like “disco sick” to my tween (THANKS, Lady Gaga!), I’m relieved to hear a girl singing about loving being herself.

Little Willow reminds me of a less rebellious but just as empowered pint-sized Cyndi Lauper.

As an equal opportunity feminist, when this “warriorette” says she’s taking to the stage with her girl-power message because she wants to – not because she has to – I believe her!

More power to you, Willow!
