Willow Smith Expresses a Don’t Hate Message in Her ‘I Am Me’ VIDEO

It’s been easy to forgot recently — thanks to some interesting fashion and style choices — that Willow Smith is actually a singer, but Sunday night she reminded us just that.

At the 2012 BET Awards, the daughter of Will and Jada and sister to Jaden — with whom she attended the event — unveiled the music video for her latest single “I Am Me,” in which she directly addresses her much-buzzed-about sartorial inclinations. “People don’t like the way I dress,” she sings over a piano strumming.

The clip depicts Smith as she navigates a city — via skateboard — and her own identity, while encouraging others to ignore any and all critics. The song is also a step in a different direction from her infamous “Whip My Hair.” It’s a much calmer video that allows Willow to show off her vocal talents.
