Teen celebrity Zendaya has been busy these days making appearances for her new book, starring in upcoming movies and performing her hit song “Replay.” The 17-year-old actress/singer recently sat down with Flaunt magazine to chat about her new, hit album and much more. Check out the interview highlights below.
On her favorite chapter of her new book Between U and Me:
I think specifically I love the ones where it talks about BFFs; friendship issues. It’s a really big issue especially in school, dynamics of friendships.
On Disney and her new pilot
I definitely want to stay with the Disney Channel and continue my young fan base. [Disney] came with this idea of this pilot called Super Awesome Katie. We’re changing it. I don’t really look like a Katie! It’s about a normal girl, socially a little awkward. Her parents turn out to be spies and they recruit her on a mission, but she feels like she’s not cut out to be anything special. It’s more mature than Shake it Up, or any other Disney show. It has a level of maturity but [it’s] also fun.
On her role models
Honestly role models will always be your parents. They are literally the role models. You learn from their mistakes, the things they teach you, right from wrong. I have a lot of older siblings too and it’s really nice that I have people that are a step between parents, the generation gap.
