Willow Smith says she lost her sanity at the height of her fame as a child. On the second episode of “Red Table Talk,” Willow said after her single Whip My Hair took off she fell into major depression. Willow was slated to record a full length album and star in the movie Annie. Willow refused to partake in the projects and started self harming. Willow confessed to her mom that she kept cutting a secret and only her best friend knew. The then 9 year old was reluctant to participate within the movie and music projects because she claims to have fell into a black hole. She says she was struggling to figure out who she was as, when executives demanded that she finish her album. "I was just like, 'I'm not gonna do that.' She also has mentioned how she couldn't deal with her parents fame. Willow was very open and honest about her situation. She said she has stopped cutting as she mentioned, "Growing up and trying to figure out your life…while people feel like they have some sort of entitlement to know what’s going on, is absolutely, excruciatingly terrible — and the only way to get over it, is to go into it."
