There are few stars, decades older, who match the utter poise and cool of 18-year-old actress, singer, dancer, and model Zendaya. (It’s pronounced Zen-DAY-a, by the way.)
Just take that recent flap where “Fashion Police” host Giuliana Rancic criticized her hair, then in dreadlocks, at the Oscars. Rather than lash out, Zendaya’s collected and educational response made her critics look small and petty.
She quickly moved way beyond all that, though, and frankly, that was all just a blip, anyways. Zendaya’s been riding high on her starring role in Disney’s “K.C. Undercover,” as well other projects like hosting the Radio Disney Music Awards this Sunday.
But, hey, she’s been Taylor Swift’s buddy for a while, and we’ve heard buzzing that she might appear in Taylor’s upcoming video. So what’s the deal with that, Zendaya? Fusion’s Alicia Menendez asked, and you can see what she said here:
Errrr, we think that’s one of those “no-comment” type of situations that really means “yes,” right?
But beyond the Radio Disney Music Awards gig, more “K.C. Undercover,” and that possible video (wink wink), Zendaya says her to-do list in life is about a mile long. “I have a long list of things I would like to accomplish and do and that would take us all of eternity. I think the most important thing to me is to be happy along the way,” she said.
“I think life is way too short to not be doing what you want to do,” she continued. “You might as well just go out there and do it. And there’s no age limit on dreams.”
Inspiring words from what seems like a young person with an old soul. Check out the full interview she gave to Alicia Menendez and “Come Here and Say That” below.
