More than child star all grown up, Zendaya’s proves she’s got this

Wi th her In stamil­lions and her squeaky-clean Dis­ney per­son a, Zendaya has be­come one of t he world ’s most in­flu­en­tial stars. As an idol of this gen­er­a­tion, it’ s fit­ting that she is prob­a­bly the only young celeb t hat goes by a mononym.

From act­ing as a child to grow­ing up in the lime light, it seems that ev­ery­thing has come easy; her only in se­cu­rity, she re­vealed, was about be­ing so“long and lanky”.“I’ m skinny, you know, like a string bean kind of ef­fect, but I’ ve learned to love that. Be­ing long and lanky comes in handy when you are try­ing to reach stuff that is high ,” she joked.

In fact, things have been the com­plete op­po­site through­out her ca­reer. Just by virtue of be­ing a child star, she was t ypecasted. And break­ing through those bar­ri­ers was ex­actly what she set out to do .“The thing is with be­ing a Dis­ney artist, you have to work ten times harder and make qual­ity mu­sic and things like that, just to get peo­ple to take you se­ri­ously. From a child star to get­ting into the adult world, you got to work a lit­tle bit harder and that’ s fine, I don’t mind do­ing t he work.” She has spo­ken about not let­ting peo­ple tear her down, say­ing ,“The only way to do that is to build your­self up so that you cre­ate a strength t hat can’t be bro­ken. That’ s gonna take awhile .”

Prov­ing that she’s more than an all-sing­ing, all - danc­ing child star, Zendaya has also re­leased her own cloth­ing line, Day a by Zendaya. Time for a Zendaya rev­o­lu­tion? Here, she speaks about her“artist im­age ”, her se­cret tomboy side, and about not let­ting fear get in the way.
