Videotheque: ’21st Century Girl’ Willow Smith Built This City


First things first: We can't say the name of Willow Smith's new single "21st Century Girl" without humming Bad Religion's "21st Century Digital Boy," so you're going to have to bear with us and watch that video at the end of the post. Second: What is actress Cicely Tyson, the Emmy-nominated star of "Roots," doing in a 10-year-old's pop video? Third, this pint-size Will Smith clone is definitely cutting a much edgier image than any other kid star we've ever seen (Bieber may have "swagger," but he's not rocking swashbuckling boots, dancing with wolves, and pulling guitars from the sand).
