Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada Pinckett-Smith, has released a new song titled “Whip My Hair.” Her new video gone viral and earned her legions of fans. But that fame has come at the expense of bald people everywhere who, through no fault of their own, simply can’t whip their hair. Thanks for rubbing it in Willow.
For the folically challenged, this new song is a grave reminder of the hair they lack. And while the hair Willow is flipping is most certainly not all her own, it’s still catching on at clubs around the country. When it comes on, the bald must retreat the corners of the club and endure the laughter and ridicule of other club-goers. Not since pancake-assed women were faced with Sir-Mix-Alot’s “Baby’s Got Back” has such a large segment of the population been relegated to the dancing sidelines.
When I’m down and i feel like giving up
I whip my hair back and forth
I whip my hair back and forth (just whip it)
So should those with out hair simply give up, Willow? Why do you have to shave the sides and leave it long on top, making it the most impossible hair style to emulate? What’s next? Is Beyonce going to release a remix with lyrics like, “If you’re bald then you better put a wig on it?” What a cruel message to send, especially with such a damn catchy beat. We want to flip our hair too, Willow! But we can’t.
