Willow Smith Reaches Out to Miley Cyrus on Twitter
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, May 7 (the same day the photo made its way around the Internet), 13-year-old Willow tweeted the 'Wrecking Ball' singer:
It sure seems like the two are kindred spirits, considering Cyrus' wild antics and Smith's much-buzzed about precocious behavior. We have to say: That is one collaboration we'd love to hear.
In regards to the now-infamous photograph, Jada Pinkett Smith has lashed out at nay-sayers who claim the shot was inappropriate.
“Here’s the deal,” she told the paparazzi greeting her at the airport yesterday. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it, and you’re acting like covert pedophiles. And that’s not cool.”
Many raised eyebrows at the picture, which showed the 13-year-old 'Whip My Hair' singer lying in bed next to Arias, the 20-year-old former 'Hannah Montana' actor, as he leaned against the wall without a shirt on. Despite the fact that the two have long been friends, many felt that the picture sent the wrong message and questioned the 7-year age gap between the two.
Of course, this hasn't been the first time that Smith has been surrounded by controversy. In 2013 she came under criticism after singing about a 'Summer Fling' in the music video for her single when she was just 12.
