Willow Smith used The Queen Latifah Show stage yesterday to both sing and defend herself.
First, the artist performed a rendition of her single "Summer Fling," belting out lyrics while standing in from of her band Melodic Chaotic. Watch now:
Then, the 12-year old addressed the controversy surrounding this song's music video, which finds the young star holding hands and cuddling with a much older gentleman caller.
"Just for clarity, the word 'fling' means something short-lived," Willow told the host and the audience. "And this song is dedicated to all the kids around the world who so miss their beloved ones."
Okay. Fair enough, we guess. Plus, with all Miley Cyrus is doing these days, does anyone really care about Willow Smith and this supposed scandal? Call us when she grabs a foam finger.
