Willow Smith Gets Tongue Pierced, or Did She?

| by Michael Allen

Willow Smith, who is 11-years-old, has caused controversy by posting an Instagram picture of herself with a pierced tongue.

The tween singing star (pictured left), posed with a friend, while flashing a silver ball on her tongue. Smith's friend wore a metal ball on (or inside) her chin.

However, Smith says her stud isn't real, although her very short hair is.

"It's fake...Sorry," she wrote on Instagram, after fans knocked the new piece of jewelry.

Smith previously stunned fans with pink hair, to which dad Will Smith said in an interview with Parade magazine: "She can’t cut my hair, but that’s her hair. She has got to have command of her body."
