Willow Smith is known for taking risks
when it comes to her hair and style, but would the "Whip My Hair" singer go so far as getting a provocative piercing?
Judging from a photo that has caused quite a commotion online, it appears 11-year-old Smith got her tongue pierced, alongside a friend who pierced her labret (facial lip).
But according to Gossip Cop
, the backlash is unnecessary.
"It isn't a piercing, it's a magnet," a source close to the Smith family tells the website. "Just a young girl having fun with accessories."
