Watch Willow Smith's new video I Am Me premiered at 2012 BET Awards
Teen star Willow Smith sings a strong 'Be Yourself/Express Yourself' message in her latest music video in support of her beautiful ballad "I Am Me". Willow got lot of attention last night premiering the clip during the 2012 BET Awards, a clip which shows the 11-year-old raptress roaming around the High Line and Washington Square Park alone. She announced the premiere of the clip once she walked on the red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Sunday night, moment when fans started screaming loud.
Rocking an oversized yellow polkadot shirt and skinny jeans paired with a round hat, the new video follows Willow strolling down the park on a skateboard, playing a mini keyboard, and singing against the backdrop of a graffiti wall. "Days pass, I'm tryna find who I really am I've been looking/ People don't like the way I dress/ So it won't matter,/ I've been looking/ I've done my hair and it's not just that easy/ I've been looking/ Your validation it's not just that important to me", she keeps rappin'.
Through the ballad song, the younger sister of Jaden Smith aims to share her thoughts about finding her identity and how she often deals with criticisms on her choices of outfits. "It's just explaining who I am and what symbolizes me-like me as an energy, me as a person, just cool and rounded," the pint-sized singer once said of her song.
