Meet Willow Smith, your new pop music overlord; Lou Reed might hate Susan Boyle; Wanda Jackson's Jack White-produced album due in January

By David Malitz

- Do you know who Willow Smith is? She's the nine-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith. She's also the newest member of Roc Nation. Jay-Z just signed the little tyke to his label. Given her bloodlines, connections and early start, it's quite possible she will be the most famous and wealthy entertainer the world has ever seen. Listen to her debut single, "Whip My Hair," above.

- Does Lou Reed hate Susan Boyle? That's what TMZ would have you believe. They reported that Reed himself denied the British singing sensation permission to sing his classic "Perfect Day" on "America's Got Talent." But his representatives say that's not the case. So, who do you believe more - TMZ or publicists for a notoriously jerky rock star?

- The long-in-the-works Jack White-produced album by rock-and-roll original Wanda Jackson is due out in January. Earlier this year Click Track talked to the Queen of Rockabilly about working with White.
