Willow Smith featured in one of the more hair-raising stories of this week - literally! Pictures surfaced on the internet of the 11 year-old with a completely shaven head, a sharp contrast to the mid-length brown hair she normally has. Maybe she's feeling the pressure of competition from fellow famous daughter BLUE IVY CARTER who has been stealing the limelight all 2012 so far by first featuring on her dad Jay Z's track 'Glory,' whilst fending off rumours that chat show legend Oprah Winfrey is her God mother.

Perhaps eager to claim some limelight back herself, the daughter of Will Smith has posted a picture on her profile page of the site Who Say, showing her completely bald and thus giving the press ample ammunition to make quips regarding her 2010 single release 'Whip My Hair.' No official reason for the chop has been given by Smith or her people as yet, the fledgling star still perhaps reeling from the disappointing commercial impact her single with one of tonight's Super Bowl performers Nicki Minaj had, in spite of a video that's racked up over 9.5 million views on her official Youtube channel.

'Fireball' didn't manage to chart in the US or UK charts at the end of last year, no doubt giving the team behind Smith food for thought on how best to address 2012. You wouldn't have thought that getting their prize asset to shave her hair off was one of their strategies.
