Zendaya Chats About Having Her Own Barbie & More with 'Flare' (Exclusive!)

Zendaya takes the cover of Flare‘s December 2015 issue, provided exclusively to Just Jared Jr!

The 19-year-old starlet chatted about having her own Barbie, her fans, and more! Read her highlights below…

On having her own Barbie: “It’s something that is long overdue. There have been black Barbies, but not ones with locs or even natural hair or different facial structures. When I was little, I had a Barbie, but I didn’t have a Barbie that looked like me because there was no mixed-girl-with-curly-hair Barbie!”

On staying real with her fans: “I’ve always been honest with my fans, and I want to keep that up because I feel they can see through the fakeness. They would know if I let someone tweet for me.”

On her obsession with Hannah Montana: “I remember Hannah Montana came out, and I was so depressed I started crying because I was like, ‘I want to do that.’”
