We're finding it really hard to feel sorry for Willow Smith.

In a recent interview, the singer bemoaned growing up with famous parents and called fame "absolutely terrible."

 

The 17-year-old singer — who is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith — has admitted living life in the spotlight is not as great as it seems, and that she wishes she could "change [her] face" or her parents.

Speaking openly to Girl Gaze Online, the "Whip My Hair" hitmaker said, "I'm going to be completely and utterly honest, it's absolutely terrible.

"Growing up and trying to figure out your life...while people feel like they have some sort of entitlement to know what's going on, is absolutely, excruciatingly terrible — and the only way to get over it, is to go into it.

"You can't change your face. You can't change your parents. You can't change any of those things.

"When you're born into it, there are two choices that you have: I'm either going to try to go into it completely and help from the inside, or no one is going to know where I am and I'm really going to take myself completely out of the eye of society.

"There's really no in between."

And the I Am Legend actress also thinks social media has a negative effect on youngsters, and can cause them to go on a downward spiral and fall into depression.

She explained, "I feel like most kids like me end up going down a spiral of depression, and the world is sitting there looking at them through their phones, laughing and making jokes and making memes at the crippling effect that this lifestyle has on the psyche."
