In a recent interview with NME magazine, Willow Smith disclosed that she idolizes and wants to be as famous as Lady Gaga.
Smith, who is releasing her debut single, "Whip My Hair," in the UK, told the magazine, “I would like to be a very well-known artist. I would like to be as big as Lady Gaga. I would like to be bigger. I'd like to be a big rock star.”
Smith's first single shot her to fame after critics compared her to established musicians such as Rihanna and Lady Gaga. Her single has become an adolescent and adult cult favorite.
Smith acknowledges the difficulties of being a pop star and says, “The hardest part is wanting to hang out with your friends when you have to work.
"My friends will come over and you're recording and you're like, 'Please let me go with my friends. I don't wanna stay here!' — but people are relying on you."
