While Willow Smith is topping the US i tunes music video charts with her hit single “Whip my hair” at the moment – which reminds me –

SIDE NOTE 1: that no matter HOW talented a child is, they should never be more than a that. A child. (This is after I watched an interview with her last week where she talks about her life at the moment and how she feels about her instant success. Apart from feeling really lucky and blessed, she INCIDENTALLY mentions that her friends are calling her to go out and play or catch a movie and she asks her mom if she can go join them only to find out that it’s time to go back to the studio for work. How sad.

So anywhoo, here in the UK we fill our charts with more mature material. “Forget you” made popular on GLEE by the lovely Gwyneth Paltrow is topping our i-tunes charts and has secured Gwyn a recurring role on the smash Television show. If you prefer the original CeeLo Green version, I’ve posted a second link to his cute video on the bottom.

SIDE NOTE 2. Can’t wait to see her return which will apparently result in a Brittana reunion. Whatever that means, the fact was confirmed on twitter by a Glee Co-Creator
