Willow Smith Unleahes a "Fireball"

Kid Reporter interviews young pop star about new single

By Cecilia Gault | December 15 , 2011

Willow Smith might be best known for her hit song "Whip My Hair." But last week, she was in New York to premiere a new video and take the next steps to pop superstardom.

"Fireball" is the first single off Willow's first album, Knees and Elbows. The album hits stores on April 3, 2012, but you can watch the video for the song today. Like the song, the video features Nicki Minaji — playing a character called Harajuku Barbie.

Willow came to New York to debut the video, and Kid Reporter Cecilia Gault caught up with her at the Sony Store in Manhattan. In their interview, Willow discusses the new video, what she does in her spare time, and advice she has for kids who want to be the next Willow Smith.
