Willow Smith Braces Herself For Ellen DeGeneres

Tuesday, November 2 is an important day that will likely radically re-shape America’s immediate future.

Election Day? No, Willow Smith’s first television appearance—duh!

The 10-year-old “Whip My Hair” chanteuse will make her small-screen debut on The Ellen DeGeneres Show tomorrow, and as the above sneak-peek photo reveals, the musically inclined child of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith does her premiere while wearing a neck brace—so that she doesn’t injure herself from all of her incessant hair-whipping. Watch an interview clip:

The brace was actually a gift to Smith—who will perform her hit song on the show—from talk show host DeGeneres, who told Willow upon presenting it,

“Because you have such great style I want to make sure if you do ever hurt your head you will be in style. You can wear a neck brace…You wear that on all your tours.”
