Rap mogul Jay Z, 44, thought he found the next Raven-Symone when he signed Will Smith’s precocious daughter, Willow, to a recording contract. But the kid proved she wasn’t ready for the big time and backed out of the deal. That hasn’t stopped Jay Z from sucking up to other Hollywood bigwigs through their children.
Roc Nation announced Steven Spielberg’s daughter and adopted son have been signed to Jay Z’s Sony Music imprint. It doesn’t matter whether the kids are talented or not. They have the prestigious Spielberg name, which will open more doors for Jay Z.

So much for Willow Smith taking a hiatus from the music biz to just be a kid. The 12-year-old shocked fans by frolicking with a grown man in a new music video for her song “Summer Fling.” In the video, the prepubescent Willow sings about having an affair with a grown man.
As the pre-teen frolics with a twenty-something man, she sings: “Don’t really care what we do tonight/ Goodnight kisses if the mood is right/ laying by the beach with you wishing this will never end.” The 12-year-old who has been dubbed “Baby Rihanna” continues: Thanks for the Summer fling/ It was nice.”
Will Smith’s precocious daughter, Willow, 12, once famously said school was not a top priority for her. But just days later, the “Whip My Hair” singer revealed her struggle with illiteracy when she couldn’t pronounce the word ‘congratulates’ during an appearance on BET’s 106 & Park.
In an interview with Vulture, Will Smith now says Willow sees the importance of going to school and hanging out with her friends.
Willow was spotted hanging out with friends in NYC on Thursday, May 30, after spending the morning helping her father and brother, Jaden Smith, promote their new flick “After Earth”.
