Willow Smith's Celebrity Idol: Lady Gaga
Given the fact that Willow comes from a famous family, it's no surprise that her parents, Will and Jada, inspired her to become a singer. However, when it comes to her career, she wants to follow in Lady Gaga and Billy Idol's footsteps. While speaking with Billboard in 2010, Willow revealed that she's a fan of Gaga's because "she cares about everybody and she writes songs about herself and everybody." In a separate interview with Elle, Willow added, "I would like to be a very well known artist. I would like to be as big as Lady Gaga. I would like to be bigger. I'd like to be a big rock star."
And it looks like the feeling is mutual because when Gaga previously stopped by The Jay Leno Show, she couldn't help but gush about Willow. "I love Willow," Gaga said. "I told her that she inspires me to whip my hair back and forth on stage."
