3 Celebs, Including Will Smith, Who Let Their Kids Do Stupid Things

Posted by Katie F. on February 3rd, 2012


Willow Smith has always had an edgy sense of style, but she just took it to a new level – the 11-year-old singer shaved her head. Willow posted a photo of her new hairdo, or lack of hairdo, on the internet last night. She was wearing a Grateful Dead t-shirt in the picture but gave no further explanation of when or why she shaved her head. She had crazy hairstyles before, including a side shave cut in 2010. Maybe she just felt like trying something new again, or maybe she’s gearing up for her role as little orphan Annie in Jay-Z’s film remake of the musical Annie. I wonder what Will and Jada Pinkett Smith think of their daughter’s decision. What kind of parents let their child choose to change their hair so drastically at such a young age?

Willow Smith won’t be performing “Whip My Hair” anytime soon, but her parents obviously didn’t stop her from cutting all her hair off. Here are a few other celebrities who let their famous children do very questionable things.

Kate Gosselin

Kate Gosselin has been criticized for putting her kids on TV too much, but her parenting was also targeted in November 2011 when she let her son crawl under the family’s minivan. While leaving school one day, photographers caught one of her sons crawling under the vehicle while Kate sat in the front seat waiting to pull away.

Jaid Barrymore

Jaid Barrymore taught her daughter Drew Barrymore how to party. As if that’s not bad enough, Drew was only nine years old when her mom started taking her to clubs and Hollywood parties. Drew ended up spending three months in rehab for marijuana, alcohol, and cocaine abuse at the age of thirteen.
