Sesame Street vs. Willow Smith- Whip My Hair



Confession: I (Toya) like this better than Willow Smith's video and I think it's only because I'm getting old. Those youngins make me dizzy. Oh Lord did I just say that? Why do I sound like my name is Mabel or Lulu Jean or somebody? Anyway, someone on Youtube commented that this may be the new "Single Ladies" for kids and I think they may be right...as well as possibly a few drag queens. I'm just sayin'.

Here is the original entitled "I Love My Hair". No matter how many times I have watched this, it warms my heart everytime. Way to go, Sesame Street! For more on how this clip came to be, check out the story of the father behind it here on NPR.

I love the "I Love My Hair" song. I feel like it needs to be mandatory viewing for all little black girls. Like they should give you a copy of it on DVD when you give birth to a girl.

I love this so much more than both originals put together. I have watched this little dolly do her little dance so many times, and I still haven't stopped laughing.
