Willow Smith: ‘Parents Just Don’t Understand’ Is My Fave Song!


Like father like daughter.

Tween singing sensation Willow Smith tells the March issue of Teen Vogue that her favorite song is papa Will Smith's 1988 anthem with DJ Jazzy Jeff, "Parents Just Don't Understand."

"Because sometimes they don't!" says the "Whip My Hair" singer, 10.

Despite the pronouncement, Smith concedes her blockbuster dad and movie star mama Jada Pinkett Smith "aren't strict."

"They won't be like, 'Willow, clean your room.' They'll be like, 'Willow, will you please clean your room,'" she says. "And I'll be like, 'Ok' and do it."

And she insists her famous fam–including big brother Jaden, 12, who starred in last year's hit remake of the Karate Kid–is "pretty regular."

"At dinner we talk about 'What did you do today? What did you wear?'" says Smith. "Not anything about work."
