Willow Smith vs Lady Gaga?

LONDON, UK - 10 year old Willow Smith wants to beat Lady Gaga at her own game. The young singer told NME magazine of her high ambition as she tops UK charts this week.

Already making waves from her haircut, the singer, like her brother Jaden, is making a big break into the entertainment business with the power of Hollywood star dad Will Smith giving them a boost.

While the young pop star admits her musical role model is music icon Lady Gaga, she has quite a long way to go before she gets the all important 1 billion internet video views, not to mention some crazy music videos to compete with.

Lady Gaga has a unique web presence, dominating on youtube, and innovating music videos with extended versions similar to the style of Michael Jackson. While Kanye West went to great lengths on 'Runaway', Gaga has yet to become a filmmaker musician, but Willow could.

Willow Smith interview

"Well, famous-ness is awesomeness ... but some parts of famous-ness can be ... hard," she said. "The hardness part is wanting to hang out with your friends when you have to work and make platinum records. And your friends come over, and you're recording, and you're like, 'Please let me go with my friends. I don't wanna stay here!' But people are relying on you." - MTV.com
