9 year-old Willow Smith seems like the most confident and lively person you would ever meet, however she did not have any problem talking about how she felt when working with Jay-Z, the superstar rapper.
“He’s Jay-Z! He’s sold like over…I don’t even know how many albums he’s sold,” she said about their first meeting. “I was nervous because what if he said, ‘Willow why do you want to sing?’ And I’m like, ‘Because I want to sing.’ He’s going to be like, ‘Umm, OK.’ I was really nervous.”
Willow also said, despite her being nervous, that Jay-Z is actually a very supportive boss. She said that when she has an idea he accepts it, and doesn’t just say, “Oh that’s bad, I don’t like that.”
