Zendaya Spills Secrets On How Her Disney Channel Show Really Went Down

Zendaya Sports Killer Bangs While Talking Race and Feminism on First Vogue Cover

'A lot of people don't realize their power!': Spider-Man: Homecoming star Zendaya talks standing up for herself as she appears on Vogue

Zendaya, fashion slayer that she is, also filmed a video with Vogue, donning outfits and makeup trends inspired by several fashionable decades-all the way from the 1920s until today. She can't do that stuff.

She penned this message: 'There is a fine line between what is amusing and disrespectful I'll have you know my father, brother, best childhood friend, and little cousins all have locs'.

"I really don't have any words right now.I'm grateful, honored and a million other attractive things that wouldn't fit in a caption".

Zendaya topped off her sequined pencil skirt with an ultra-slouchy turtleneck trimmed in a similarly spangly embellishment. After trying to shape herself to be a typical Disney actor, she said that she realized she was exactly who she needed to be.

"Do I look like a Katy to you?" she told Vogue.

"I have so many friends who say yes to everything or feel like they can't stand up for themselves in a situation", Zendaya continued. "No". When responding to said controversy, she did not mince words: "It's like, you guys are just making s**t up at this point and then reacting to it.But of course there's going to be outrage over that because for some reason some people just aren't ready".

On Thursday, Zendaya joined the rest of the Spider-man: Homecoming cast for a photocall in London, wearing a blue tulle dress and topping it off with a piece rarely seen on the red carpet: a cardigan. "You have the power". I want her to be able to think on her feet.

The star also dishes on growing up in Oakland, her family's involvement in the Black Panther party and her own personal take on style. Like K.C., Zendaya is also "normal with an extraordinary life". 'Afros, the whole nine'. It wasn't a good ending. This year, she stars as Michelle in Spiderman: Homecoming and as a trapeze artist in The Greatest Showman alongside fellow Disney alum Zac Efron.

And if you needed yet another reason to applaud the actress for her work on Disney, she's now working with the show's writers on an episode regarding stop-and-frisk, making sure it's accessible for kids.
