Willow Smith to Jada Pickett-Smith opens up about losing her sanity during early success

Willow Smith shocked her mom, Jada Pinkett Smith on their latest episode of Red Table Talk.

During the second episode of Jada’s Facebook watch talk show with Adrienne Banfield-Jones, when Jada asked about her greatest loss, 17-year-old Willow reveals that she lost her sanity shortly after her hit song Whip My Hair came out in 2010.

She says: “It was after that whole Whip My Hair thing and I had just stopped doing singing lessons and I was kind of just in this gray area of, ‘Who am I? Do I have a purpose? Is there anything I can do besides this?’”

She continues adding: “After the tour and the promotion and all of that, they wanted me to finish my album. And I was like, I’m not gonna do that.

“And after all of that kinda settled down and it was like a kind of lull, I was just listening to a lot of dark music. It was just so crazy and I was plunged into this black hole, and I was cutting myself.”

The revelation shocked Jada and Adrienne who had no idea the young singer was going through that. When Jada asked about where she cut herself, Willow further adds: “On my wrist. I mean, you can’t even see it but there’s still a little something there. But like, totally lost my sanity for a moment there. I never talk about it because it was such a short weird point in my life. But you have to pull yourself out of it.”

Apparently, life happens to us all and crazy things happen regardless of the age.
