Celebrity Spotlight: Zendaya

Surprise! She's a Potterhead!
by Mintzy Flor

We’ve seen this Disney child star “Shake It Up” on our TV screens and in two Spiderman movies and a Bruno Mars video. Zendaya is not only a singer and an actress but a style icon and the face of Lancôme. She now stars in HBO’s Euphoria and keeps rocking red carpet events with her fashion choices.

Even with her success, Zendaya stays grounded and true to herself. Here are three things we love about her:

She watches Harry Potter as a part of her self-care routine

Yes, Zendaya is a Potterhead. In an interview with In Style last August 9, the 22-years-old admitted to watching Harry Potter films. “People say I’m crazy, but I watch Harry Potter, like, once a day. It’s just calming to me, so that’s my thing,” she said. “People are like, ‘Oh my god, Harry Potter again?’ I say, ‘Don’t come over to my house if you don’t want to watch it, because it’s going to be on.'” If that isn’t relatable, then we don’t know what is.

We find ourselves with our mouths open every time Zendaya graces the red carpet for a fashion show or movie premiere. She has tried various hair styles such as dreadlocks, wavy, short, and even blonde. She can kill a pantsuit as much as a long gown and we love that you can put her in anything.

She voices out her opinions loud and clear 

She is very vocal on a lot of social issues, from feminism to her heritage. “There is already harsh criticism of African-American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair,” she posted on Instagram during the Oscars last year. She bravely calls out people who keep on discriminating and spreading hate.
