Last night on The X-Factor, pint sized pop star and positive thinker Willow Smith debuted a new song called “Fireball” that is all about the degree to which she, Willow Smith, is (you guessed it) a human fireball.
She started things off with several ear-piercing squeals I suspect I’m almost too old to even be able to hear, followed by some not-bad singing, followed by some G-rated rapping. It seems like she (and/or whoever writes her songs for her) might be trying to bite M.I.A.‘s style a bit with those squeals and “world music” beats, only instead of murky radical politics, the lyrics are about Willow’s general joie de vivre.
And how, exactly, does one become “the fireball at the party” when the party in question is most likely some other celebrity spawn’s twelfth birthday? I’m thinking it has to do with eating a ton of cake, pinning the tail on the donkey, then taking a turn in the bouncy castle without throwing up. You know, fireball stuff.

When asked what advice she’d give the X-Factor finalists, Willow said, “Just have fun because nobody can really go wrong with just being yourself up there. Just be yourself and donâ€™t lose the fun of it!â€ť It’s easy to say that when you’ll never have to be judged by Simon Cowell.
