I’ve always seen Will and Jada’s kids being labeled as weird and unorthodox but I think Willow said it perfectly when she described herself as Next Level in her ID Magazine interview. During this interview the 14 year old dropped so much knowledge it astounded me. For someone her age to be so “woke” and in tuned with her thoughts, impressed me. I thought that the information she shared was thought provoking, and decided I share some excerpts with you all.
The best advice she’s ever gotten:
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given was when my brother Jaden said, ‘Albert Einstein said that time was relative, but he forgot to say that so is everything else,'” says Willow. “And that just made me think: good and bad is so relative. Moral and immoral is so relative. Everything in the world is just so relative. You could say, ‘Oh, that girl is so mean to me’, but really if you look at her life and how she was raised and her experiences that have brought her to this point, you really can’t label her because it couldn’t have been any other way. Putting a label on someone doesn’t really work because everything is relative.
On being an individual and carving her own path:
The only reason I carve my own path the way I do is because of the way I was raised, Willow points out. My parents always said, ‘If you don’t carve your own path, someone’s going to carve it for you. And that’s not fun. No one could ever tell me what to do with my music. No one could ever say, ‘No, don’t do that ’cause that’s not what sells.’ I couldn’t care less what sells,” she insists. I care more about what can help people, and help them realize there lies an inner power.
What she wants to be:
The only thing that I ever want to do is to be on the next level because if you’re not, then either you’re staying in the same place you’ve always been or you’re following somebody else. I don’t care what anybody says, following everybody else or staying in the same place and not venturing out to try other things is not fun, she says, laughing. It’s all about finding the joy in life, and finding the dance and happiness of just being alive. Carving your own path is part of that.
What she thinks of her generation (millennials):
I feel that right now what our generation needs is to do the art that’s in our hearts. Do it to the fullest and try to help other people find out that thing that makes them happy. The more people that are doing what’s in their hearts, the more that heart vibration is going to start spreading around the world, and the more people will start thinking, Wow, maybe McDonalds isn’t what I should be eating, maybe the way they’re teaching me in school is depressing me, maybe I should be climbing trees and meditating more than I should be listening to my teachers telling me that everything I’m doing is wrong. So it’s taking those little steps towards awareness.
I loved this interview with Willow and thought she dropped many gems. I often think when people are labeled weird or crazy it’s dismissive and wrong. I just believe Willow is very in tuned with herself, and that scares people. What do you think of Willow’s interview?
Her photo-shoot also included her wearing pieces from Gucci, Celine, and Prada. I included the pictures below.
