Willow Smith may only be 12 years old, but she’s already singing about falling in love and going on dates! Did the preteen go too far with her latest tune ‘Summer Fling?’ Watch the controversial music video — do YOU think it’s too mature?

Willow Smith, 12, was born to be in the entertainment business. With her famous parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith‘s help, the tween has found success as an actress and singer, and recently formed the group Melodic Chaotic with DJ MVSIC Fabrega. The duo released the latest video for the track, “Summer Fling” and it left people talking about the mature message and Willow’s fake accent!

Willow Smith’s Latest Song ‘Summer Fling’ Deemed Inappropriate

The tween, who codirected the video, sings about a summer romance, goodnight kisses and laying out by the beach with her love in the new track — and she’s only 12! With lyrics such as, “it’s just a couple months, but we do it anyway,” and “you tell me that I’m the one, I tell you it’s just for fun,” Willow shocked her audience with her new sound. She even used a fake English accent for the speaking parts of the song! The adult issues on the track have left many critics perplexed, thinking that she is way too young to be singing such an inappropriate song!

Her brother Jaden Smith, 15, who makes a cameo in the video, tweeted the day after the video came out:

Willow Is 12………I Think?

Black Youth Project, a project aimed at examining youth culture in African American communities, also spoke out about the video on Facebook. They wrote:

Willow Smith’s new single, “Summer Fling,” has raised some eyebrows due to its subject matter and accompanying video. A few op-eds have questioned the idea of a 12-year old having a “summer fling,” and whether or not the whole concept is just too mature.

Willow Struggles To Make Hits After ‘Whip My Hair’

Willow may be young, but that hasn’t prevented her from landing a record deal! Willow is already signed with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation. It was during her time with Jay-Z that she released her debut single “Whip My Hair,” in 2010, which became an instant success. The youngest Smith has struggled since the hit, however, releasing a few tracks, none of which were able to reach the same level of fame. With all of the negative publicity surrounding the track, “Summer Fling” definitely doesn’t seem to to be the hit that she was looking for.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Willow’s new song “Summer Fling” inappropriate? Do you like the track?

I think that it is ridiculous that people are talking about this 12 yr old like this. She is doing what we all have done at her age except in the public eye. Her parents are doing a good job in allowing her some independence in some of the things she wants to do. She is not on drugs or alcohol and you don’t hear about her doing anything wild except expressing herself creatively in hair and dress. She is a BEAUTIFUL little girl.

Will and Jada are a ssd excuse as parents. From the age of 9 this child has been allowed to grow up too fast. To the rest of the world celebrities and their values are SAD. Let her and her brother be kids.

I don’t understand the problem with the song. Its not like she’s talking about sex! For the talking part to me it doesn’t sound like she’s doing a British accent, but if she is, its not a good one.

I agree, 12 year olds can still ‘date’ and it can be perfectly innocent. The people who have a problem with this kind of thing are usually the ones sexualising it, which I think says more about them…

I like the song I guess… But TF I jus watched watched tho..??? This girl is pretty, tall and slim,.. mayb she should consider doing modeling 1st then give singing and songs another try. Her brother has gotten older, and he’s still cute 2! But the main question is… ARE WILL AND JADA OK WITH WHAT SHE IS DOING?????????? Cuz 1st of all I wouldn’t AT ALL let her CUT her HAIR and then wear ugly wigs!!!!!!!

Her Daddy should do all he can to let her be a child for awhile. She looks trashy already with the bleached hair and terrible looking shaggy bangs. Not a successful look for a 12 year old. If she wants to go into the business when she’s a little older, maybe she won’t end up like the rest of the losers who were former child stars. Think Lohan, Spears, Bynes, and even Justin Bieber who are all having trouble in life skills now that they are young twenties in age.
