During an interview with Allure, willow talked about the pressure she feels being the daughter of two very famous parents, and how this made her work even harder to achieve her goals in the music industry.

“I definitely think a little bit of insecurity has made it harder for me because people think the only reason I’m successful is because of my parents,” he said. “It made me work really hard to try to prove them wrong. But these days I don’t need to prove anything to anyone.”

I truly believe that my spirit is strong and that even if my parents weren’t who they were, I would still be a weirdo and a crazy thinker.
