So this photo of 13-year-old Willow Smith lying in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old Disney actor Moises Arias has gone viral today and it seems to have everyone in a tizzy. The photo was taken and uploaded to 490tx.com by a mutual photographer friend of theirs. Seems like they’re this one big tight knit group. Only problem is that Willow is 13 and part of a tight knit group with a 20-year-old young man whose not her cousin. Everyone is saying the photo is completely inappropriate, and I’m wondering when has Willow Smith ever been age appropriate?
It’s no secret that Will and Jada Smith have a very “relaxed” approach to parenting. They’ve stated that they feel their children are mature enough to make their own decisions. I’m sure this parenting technique isn’t too popular outside of Hollyweird, but I’m sure it works for them. Sources close to the family state that the Smiths have known Moises for years and have no issues with the pic.
Everyone knows Will and Jada lets those kids run around Hollywood doing anything they want to. The Smiths are the first family of Black Hollywood, so I’m a little confused as to why anyone thinks their lifestyle is like the family across the street. What strikes me as odd is that Jada has just completed a documentary about the sex industry here in America, and I saw her testimonial on how overly-sexualized our young girls here are. She seemed so passionate about it that I can’t help but wonder why she doesn’t see how sexualized her own daughter is. I guess because Willow is so slim and lanky it’s easy to dismiss her as just a precocious young girl. However, every time she’s in the tabloids, she’s doing some grown woman shyt with a look like it’s not her first time doing it.
In the end, it’s not our jobs to parent someone’s kid. I know MY 13-year-old sister wouldn’t be lying around on the bed with my half naked best friend in any situation. I don’t care how “grown” and “mature” you wanna pretend your own kids are, this is a big bad world that will take advantage of spoiled, entitled, privileged, naive youth the first chance they get. I don’t put nothing past anyone, and I damn sure don’t trust somebody’s else child with mine. I feel like there’s a difference between letting your children make their own decisions, and completely checking out of your duties as a parent. In a lot of ways this “hands off” parenting style the Smiths have taken is starting to look more and more like “we don’t give a FuQ!”
Qmunity what are your thoughts? Is the pic a big deal about nothing or would you mind your 13-year-old-daughter chilling over on your son’s half naked best friend’s bed?
P.S. I’m not sure I can end this blog without saying that they look like they been laid up smoking weed and screwing all day! (U know u were thinking it) Can we find this girl some tap classes to take?
