Willow Smith was an instant hit when she released her catchy, upbeat dance tune Whip My Hair, but the singer/fashionista showed off a softer side in the video for her latest single I Am Me, which happens to be a touching ballad.

The song is very personal for the young star, who has been criticized by the media lately for her not-so-trendy style. Willow has shaved her head, dyed her hair neon green and fooled the world -- parents included -- by posting a pic on instagram that showing off a tongue ring, which turned out to be fake.

In the lyrics for I Am Me, Willow sings "Days pass, I'm tryin' to find out who I really am/ I've been lookin'/ People don't like the way I dress or where I'm at."

Willow explained her latest song, telling Global Grind, "It's just explaining who I am and what symbollizes me-like me as an energy, me as a person, just cool and rounded."
