In The Battle Of The Pint-Sized Celebs, Famous Parentage Doesn't Always Get You To The Top

Willow Smith built a fan base with a hit single long before releasing her debut album, which drops this month. Why do we care? Because she's just 11--and the daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. Parental celebrity may fuel a young star's brand, but as these comparisons show, it's no guarantee of success over competing peers.
