Was Willow Smith Rude to Oprah?

Willow Smith Remake 260 Jpg

After debuting her new single "21st Century Girl" last week, Willow Smith made an even bigger splash on television as a recent co-host for the Oprah Winfrey Show — but the blogosphere has talking about how the young hair-whipper was acting a tad too grown during her talk with Ms. Winfrey.

Apart from rocking the stage with her performance of "Whip My Hair" and "21st Century Girl," 10-year-old Willow chatted with Oprah about her career, trailblazing fashion sense, and what she does for fun. But many say the ten-year-old acted a little too familiar with Oprah calling her "Girl" and coming across as a little cocky. For example, Oprah asked Willow to describe her closet and the Roc Nation superstar replied: "Giiiiirl. No, it's like from here to there."

Several audiences members tweeted that her constantly calling Oprah "girl" and her tone during the show was disrespectful. Author Terry McMillan already caused a stir about Willow's behavior in a recent tweet saying the Smith children have an "arrogance to their demeanor and behavior."

Do you agree  — was Willow Smith being rude or just lively on the show?
