WILLOW SMITH premiered the video for her new single, “I’m Me,” over the weekend.
However empowering and liberating the song may be, at 11-years old SMITH’s pursuit of self discovery and self acceptance seems a bit premature.
We’re not sure how free one should be at 11 years old, but it seems that SMITH has it all figured out.

Last night celebs pulled out all the stops at the 2012 BET Awards hosted by SAMUEL L. JACKSON to make it one of the most memorable BET has seen in years.
A-listers JAY-Z and BEYONCE, who are normally missing from the sea of Black faces at this award show, sat front row and offered the world to view some rare PDA moments.
Right next to the hip hop power couple, sat KANYE and his flavor of the month KIM KARDASHIAN, who more than provided the source for some of most shady moments of the night.
NICKI MINAJ, FRANKIE BEVERLY and MAZE, and USHER rocked the house with their performances, and D’ANGELO for his first televised performance in over 10 years. And of course, no the awards wouldn’t have been complete without paying homage to the late and great WHITNEY HOUSTON.
Celebs like DRAKE and RIHANNA were noticeably absent from the show, and a few awkward moments had us giving our TV sets the side eye.Check out the gallery inside for the best and worst moments of the 2012 BET Awards...
