Tired of Glee’s girls gone wild? and the near-pornographic playthings that pass for pastimes for girls these days? Then check out this new video by Willow Smith, daughter of actors Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. It’s a hella lotta fun.

The words don’t go much beyond “I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my hair back and forth, I whip it real good,” and true, the production values, choreography and hair styling are the very best money can buy, but it’s catchy and meaningless and girlish and fun.

Willow isn’t wearing a ton of makeup (aside from in her hair, that is); her eyebrows look brushed but not plucked; basically, she just looks like the privileged but hip 9-year-old she is. A kid having fun. And here, for the little kid in us all, is the Muppet take on it.
