Jada and Will’s daughter Willow Smith have long been suspected of being members of the LGBT community. Now MTO News can confirm that the beautiful 20-year-old is officially out.
She announced on her Instagram this weekend that she is a member of the LGBT community (in particular, she classifies herself as “queer”) and she describes herself as an “ethical non-monogamist”.
She posted both labels on her Instagram bio this morning.
So what does it mean to be “queer”? Here is the definition:
An adjective used by some people, especially younger people, whose sexual orientation is not exclusively heterosexual. Typically, those who identify as queer find the terms lesbian, gay and bisexual to be too restrictive and / or have cultural connotations that they think do not apply to them.
And what does it mean to be an ethical non-monogamist? Yours is the definition:
Non-monogamy is basically a relationship that involves more than two people. “Ethical” non-monogamy means that all parties are treated with respect and that all parties have enthusiastically agreed to the agreement.
Willow is a singer, songwriter, rapper, record producer, actress, and dancer. She is the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and the younger sister of Jaden Smith. Smith made her acting debut in the film I Am Legend in 2007 and later appeared in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, starring Abigail Breslin. She received a Young Artist Award for her performance.
Smith kicked off her music career in fall 2010 with the release of the singles “Whip My Hair” in 2010 and “21st Century Girl” in 2011, and signed with Roc Nation in 2010 under her current mentor Jay-Z’s youngest artist signed on. “Whip My Hair” reached number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
