Zendaya is gracing the cover of the latest edition of Rolling Out magazine.
Throughout her shoot Zendaya got a change to show off her fashion forward style, wearing a collection of clothes by designer Boohoo. The seventeen-year-old entertainer also sat down to chat about her new DCOM movie Zapped, fashion and more.
Check out the interview highlights below.
Although the concept is out there a little bit, I wanted to make it real so that everyone could connect with the storyline. The character realizes that you have to love people for who they are and understand their circumstances. Although it’s a little far-fetched, it’s really cute and fun for the family. I think everyone will enjoy it and will be able to relate to it. Everyone can find a character that they find similar to themselves. That’s what I think people will take from this movie.
On the concept for her self-titled debut album
People already think about me based on my Disney background and they already assume certain things about me. I wanted to give the dopest and coolest music you’ve ever heard that is family friendly, and you’re going to like it. I did that and I’m very proud of it. I found a way to make music that I like and that I would enjoy that is family appropriate. I wanted to create music that was edgy and mixed with R&B and pop. I wanted to create a sound of my own that people would enjoy without it being vulgar. I think some of the best artists in the world, like Michael Jackson, don’t have to curse or do something crazy just so they can get people to enjoy their songs.
On New York Fashion Week
A lot of people didn’t know me before that week. It was really cool that people who may have never heard my song or seen my TV show connected with me through a different form of art, which was fashion. We really took advantage of that week. Even if we were just walking down the street, we were going to wear the most fabulous outfits while walking down the street. That’s what me and my stylist did. We went out there and conquered fashion week. It was a great week for me.
