Jennette McCurdy Likes to ‘Whip Her Hair’
It looks like Willow Smith’s dance craze has now caught on in the country music world! Over the holidays, up-and-coming country singer Jennette McCurdy released a video of herself and her family members dancing wildly to Smith’s ‘Whip My Hair’ in order to celebrate their love for the song. The 10-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith released her debut single ‘Whip My Hair’ in September 2010, and the video for the pop song soon went viral, becoming a craze across the Internet.
McCurdy has never been one to shy away from comedy, as shown on her hit Nickelodeon show ‘iCarly,’ and her ‘Whip My Hair’ video really shows off her love for all things silly. The video features McCurdy, her brother and her sister-in-law dancing around their family’s living room. Although her family members have pretty impressive moves, make sure to keep your eyes on McCurdy, whose amazingly enthusiastic performance really steals the show. At one point, she even recruits a giant stuffed animal as her dance partner. We feel kind of bad for the stuffed animal, though, as McCurdy’s furious hair whipping shows no mercy towards her less-abled dance partner.
In the middle of the hair whipping, the song abruptly shuts off, catching McCurdy and her family slightly off guard as they continue to dance. McCurdy then goes up to the camera to add a personal message to Willow Smith and her family. She says, “Hey Willow. We love your song. You’re awesome, and we all think the Smith family is the coolest family in Hollywood.” Maybe next time, McCurdy can do a rendition of Will Smith’s ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ rap.
