Did Willow Smith really get her tongue pierce…

Has Willow Smith’s wild child image gone too far?

The “Whip My Hair” singer is known for her bold style choices and her often brightly colored locks, but the 11-year-old caused a stir when she posted a picture of herself on Instagram sporting what looked to be a tongue ring.

The picture immediately got a reaction, with many wondering if Will and Jada Pinkett Smith were properly parenting their youngest daughter. “Willow Smith is 11 and has a tongue ring. WHERE ARE HER PARENTS?” someone lamented on Twitter.

But not to worry folks, because it turns out that the fuss was all over nothing: the tongue ring is a fake! “It isn’t a piercing, it’s a magnet,” a source told Gossip Cop after the backlash started. “Just a young girl having fun with accessories.” Willow, herself, echoed that statement, changing the caption on the Instgram photo to read, “It’s fake…Sorry.”

She whips it – and whips it good!

PEOPLE has your first look at scenes from 9-year-old Willow Smith’s music video for her infectious first single, “Whip My Hair.” The daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith filmed the video in Sylmar, Calif., in September with director Ray Kay – who has also helmed clips for Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Beyoncé.

In the video, which debuts on BET on Monday (the single hits iTunes Oct. 26), the pint-sized singer – who is signed to Jay-Z’s record label – gets playful with her wardrobe and some paint, and joins guest stars ranging in age from 1 to 85 who, you guessed it, whip their hair back and forth for the cameras.
