Whip My Hair: Willow Smith vs Sesame Street
Willow Smith 'Whip My Hair Video Debuts
WIllow Smith's video for "Whip My Hair" debuts on October 18. The "Whip My Hair" video was directed by Ray Kay, who also helmed Lady Gaga's "Pokerface" video: that's quite an above-the-line asset to bring to a 9-year-old's first song, but that 9-year-old is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, so there you go.
Willow Smith has stated that she wants to work with Lady Gaga; she stands a greater chance of seeing that become a reality than does the average pre-teen aspiring pop star.
Sesame Street-'Whip My Hair' Mashup
Meanwhile, "Whip My Hair" got the mashup treatment, most notably with Sesame Street; the Sesame Street/Willow Smith "Whip My Hair" video is also viewable here. Which is better?
(We're going with the Sesame Street version; apologies to Ray Kay)
