Willow Smith Reflects On Feeling "Sadness That I Didn't Know Existed" After Early Stardom

Willow Smith, who was thrust into stardom at the age of 10 years old following the release of "Whip My Hair," says her life could've gone down a dark path. Smith reflected on her childhood fame during a recent interview with Sirius XM's Bevelations.

"I saw the dark path I could have gone down. I think I kind of caught myself before my coping mechanisms started too early," Smith told host Bevy Smith, as caught by E! News. "I knew I needed to be a kid."

She added: "I had touched a sadness that I didn't know existed. And that was terrifying. Because I was like, 'I've never felt this before. I don't know, this is obviously not healthy.' 'I need to stop this before it becomes a darker, a darker place.'"

"And realistically in my young mind, I really didn't know," Willow continued. "I just knew it felt wrong. I just knew it. I just knew everything felt wrong."

Willow eventually returned to music in 2015 to release her debut studio album, Ardipithecus. Her newest album, Coping Mechanism, was released on Oct. 7. A day after the project was released, Willow performed "Ur a Stranger" and "Curious/Furious" on Saturday Night Live.

Elsewhere in the interview, Willow discussed the series Red Table Talk, which she hosts with her mother Jada Pinkett Smith, and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
