Willow and Jada Pinkett Smith discuss polyamory with Adrienne Banfield-Norris
Her grandmother couldn't quite wrap her head around it, though.
Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, has discussed being polyamorous in a recent episode of Red Table Talk.
In the talk show, which involves Willow, her mother Jada and grandmother Adrienne Banfield-Norris discussing topics, the 20-year-old said that she was polyamorous but that she doesn't see herself having more than two partners at once.
She explained: "With polyamory, I feel like the main foundation is the freedom to be able to create a relationship style that works for you and not just stepping into monogamy because that's what everyone around you says is the right thing to do."
The singer and actress continued: "So I was like, how can I structure the way that I approach relationships with that in mind? Also, doing research into polyamory, the main reasons why monogamous relationships - or why marriage - why divorces happen is infidelity."
Perhaps unsurprisingly, it was the eldest of the three women, Adrienne, that struggled to come to terms with the concept most.
She said to her granddaughter: "For somebody like me, it feels like it's really all just centred around sex."
But Willow responded with the example of a couple who might have opposite thoughts and attitudes towards sex.
"Are you gonna be the person to say, you know, just because I don't have these needs, you can't have them either?" she said.
"And so that's kind of one of the reasons why I actually was interested in poly because I was introduced to it through kind of a nonsexual lens. In my friend group, I'm the only polyamorous person, and I have the least sex out of all of my friends."
In the Red Table Talk episode Jada said: "I'm okay with whatever you do. When you were like, 'Hey, this is my get down'. I was like, 'I totally get it'. Wanting to set up your life in a way that you can have what it is that you want, I think anything goes as long as the intentions are clear."
The revelation was in fact not news to her mum Jada though. Willow had already spoken about her polyamory and bisexuality two years ago on Facebook.
At the time Willow said that she loves "men and women equally and so I would definitely want one man, one woman. I feel like I could be polyfidelitous with those two people."
