Fame, despite being too powerful a force, is also too heavy a burden for anyone, but especially for a teenager. Willow Smith is the latest to put the magnifying glass on the difficulties that young people like her can go through when the weight of success begins to accumulate on their shoulders.

Any user who has been on social media for at least five years knows Willow’s story. The youngest daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith catapulted to fame when, at just 10 years old, she released her first single, ‘Whip My Hair’, a single that positioned her as a new child star in the field. of the music.

But despite being a celebrity from an early age and in the face of all this attention, Willow became overwhelmed and temporarily retired from the artistic world. She despite being famous from the moment of her birth for being the daughter of a star couple. She has made a surprising confession on the program that her mother has on Facebook, Red Table Talk, and it is that a few years ago fame overcame her, she lost control and that led her to harm herself, she even self-harmed when she achieved fame in the world of music with his aforementioned single.

Despite being known since she was born due to her parents’ fame, the young woman has confessed: “Honestly, I feel like I got to a point where I lost my sanity.”

“After that [the success of ‘Whip My Hair] I stopped singing and took singing lessons, I was kind of in a gray area. Who I am? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything I can do besides this?’” the young woman wondered. Regardless of her mother’s presence at the time of her confession, the teenager herself had no qualms about admitting that she even went so far as to self-harm. After the tour, the promotion and all that, they wanted me to finish my album and I told them, ‘I’m not going to do it.’ “I listened to dark music and everything was crazy. I plunged into that black hole and cut myself.” Willow’s sudden confession shocked her mother, who confessed that she was unaware of this episode in her daughter’s life. “What are you talking about? “Well, I had no idea,” said Pinkett-Smith. “I never saw signs that it was happening” “Where did you cut yourself”

“There is still something here. I never talk about it because it was a strange and brief period of my life, but I managed to get out of it.

In the same way, Willow added that this stage of her life was “a long time ago” and she even came to anticipate that she is resuming her musical career. She now, all grown up, continues her career, but on a smaller scale. But after her last confession, we have discovered to what extent the young woman went through a rough patch, even cutting herself and flagellating herself. Willow claims that hurting herself was the only way to make the emotional pain she felt tangible. When she became aware of the process she was going through, she stopped doing it. Now fully recovered, she claims that five years have passed since the last time she self-harmed.
