Zendaya to 'NKD Magazine': Some People Go to Prom, Some People Go on 'DWTS'

Zendaya shows off hear striking features on the March 2014 cover of NKD Magazine.

The 17-year-old singer/actress, who is wearing Katty Xiomara, opened up to the glossy about her music, her desire to be a good role model, and her time on Dancing with the Stars.

On DWTS: “Some people get to go to prom and some people get to go on Dancing with the Stars. I think I’m good. I didn’t want to come in there as the celebrity who tried to pass by doing some little two-step. I wanted to learn how to be a professional dancer. Being 16 years old helps, and maybe my knees are a little better, but it still takes a lot out of you. I didn’t go on the show to try and win. I went on the show to experience something new.”

On being a role model: “Spotlights are used to highlight something in someone that can bring a spotlight to other people. I wanted to be a good influence on my demographic. Their parents have told me they’re proud of me and that they want their kids to be like me.”

On her album: “Every decision was mine to make. I found my producers, chose the artwork, songs, and all the visuals that came with it. I only chose songs I would listen to a million times. If I wouldn’t listen to it a million times, who will? I needed to be in love with it.”
