The actress is no stranger to stealing the spotlight. Earlier this year, she opened up about her new music album, Coping Mechanism, and shared her inspiration for the music. While speaking with Vanity Fair about her project, the actress went philosophical, expressing her thoughts on the cosmos. Smith told Vanity Fair,

“Nowadays, I’ve just been looking at the world and being, like, wow. The unknown energy that makes the ocean do its thing, that makes stars explode, that allows black holes and other cosmos to exist—it’s a beautiful thing. Even though life has a lot of suffering, and even though there’s a lot of pain, there’s also a lot of beauty.”

During her conversation with the outlet, she talks about her album and what the music is about, 

“It’s more about just the existential trauma of being alive in general.”

During her appearance on The YUNGBLUD Podcast in 2021, she opened up about the struggles and problems she endured in her career, saying, 

“For so long, I had a lot of fear. I felt extremely unsafe in my music career in the past, and that feeling of insecurity or unsafety, like I didn’t feel protected, which went really deep. It’s interesting because all of those memories and emotions have just been resurfacing.”

“I had like a flashback of being like 10 or 9 and having like an anxiety attack on set and basically feeling like everyone around me was like, ‘You’re just a brat.’ ‘Why aren’t you grateful?’”

Willow Smith found her true calling in music. Despite initially launching her career in the film industry, she decided to move in a different direction, launched her career in the music business, and steadily solidified her spot by giving nonstop record-smashing songs.
