Willow Smith Talks ‘Fireball,’ Gushes Over Nicki Minaj

Willow Smith has lots of love for Nicki Minaj. The pint-sized pop star, who collaborated with the Harajuku Barbie on her new single “Fireball,” recently stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s radio show where she discussed their collaboration and described her in three words.

“Nicki Minaj is absolutely an amazing person. She has so much energy, and working with her was like just [a] spark. We were coming together with all our art and everything and it was amazing,” said the 11-year-old singer. “We didn’t really give each other ideas. We were kind of talking about what a fireball is. A fireball is somebody—it doesn’t have to be a girl or a boy—who just goes out there and does what they want to do and is so outgoing and tries new things and is true to who they are.”

Willow, who Nicki describes “like a bag of cotton candy,” shared what she thought of her “Fireball” co-star. “I think that she is a Rhinestone Teddy Bear,” she giggled.

The video for “Fireball” is set to premiere December 7 on “106 & Park,” with her Roc Nation debut slated for an April 3 release.
