The internet is calling her out for being overly dramatic.
It seems like it would be pretty great to grow up with two famous parents—there would be galas galore, fancy vacations, and IRL access to your celebrity crush. But according to Willow Smith, the 17-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, growing up in the public eye is “absolutely terrible.”
Being under the metaphorical microscope at a young age can also lead to mental-health issues, according to Willow. “I feel like most kids like me end up going down a spiral of depression, and the world is sitting there looking at them through their phones; laughing and making jokes and making memes at the crippling effect that this lifestyle has on the psyche,” she said. “When you’re born into it, there are two choices that you have; I’m either going to try to go into it completely and help from the inside, or…no one is going to know where I am…and I’m really going to take myself completely out of the eye of society. There’s really no in-between.“

I could think of a lot worse upbringings than growing up the child of two rich and famous parents. https://t.co/uLQhCcZiPv
