Danni Starr interviewed Willow Smith this morning on 96.3 NOW

Willow Smith called in to my radio show on 96.3 NOW today and I literally fell in love. She’s adorable. The ten-year-old interviewed like a pro.

I was the first to tell her that celebrities like Jimmy Fallon, Bruce Springsteen and Snooki have done their own renditions of Whip My Hair. She was shocked and flattered.


A few highlights from the interview:

On Justin Bieber: SHE DOES NOT HAVE BIEBER FEVER. She said: “I love him like a brother.”

Who would she like to work with: “Lady Gaga and I would have loved to work with Tupac.”

On working with Jay Z: “He’s Uncle J and Beyonce is Auntie B.”

On being compared to Rihanna: She takes it as a compliment and admits “she actually called to wish me happy birthday on my birthday.”

On being a presenter for the upcoming American Music Awards: “I’m soooooooooo excited.”

On her hit song Whip My Hair – she had no idea it would be such a hit at all.

Will and Jada‘s daughter, who just turned ten on October 31, was full of charisma and star quality. You Go Girl!
