Willow Smith Fell Asleep in First Meeting With Jay-Z
Recalling the first time she met the rapper, the 'Whip My Hair' hitmaker admits she nodded off when they first discussed her career after she was signed to his Roc Nation record label.
fell asleep in front of the first time they met. The 10-year-old pop star, who is the daughter of and , is signed to the rapper's Roc Nation record label but when they first sat down to discuss her career the young singer nodded off.

She said, "When I met with him [Jay-Z] in Japan I was so tired because I was hanging out the night before and had been dancing and having fun and I didn't know we had to meet Jay-Z that next morning so I went to sleep at, like, 4 A.M. and I fell asleep in the meeting!"

But, the "Whip My Hair" singer insists she didn't miss anything important, and was able to pretend she was awake because she was wearing dark glasses. She added in an interview with BBC Radio 1, "I had glasses and so I was, like, nodding along, but they were listening to the song and he was just talking to my mom and dad."

"But I was really tired. I was probably asleep for, like, 10 minutes of it. But I didn't miss anything [really good], that's the cool part I only missed the parts where he was explaining to my mom and dad where we're gonna be going and when we were gonna drop the single, stuff like that, although I guess that's important. But we got to hear all the songs they had for me, we have a lot of bombs to drop. It's gonna be like 'boom'."

Willow admits she sleeps a lot and relies on her brother , who has starred in several movies, including "", to be her alarm clock. She said, "I sleep until someone screams at me. It's usually my brother, mostly."
