Zendaya is all smiles while stopping by The Alli Simpson Show recently on Radio Disney!
In case you missed it, the 19-year-old actress/singer opened up about a variety of topics. Check it:
On being a role model: “I like the word real model a little bit better because, you know, if you’re a role model, then you’re kind of pretending, right? You’re in a role. And for me I don’t feel like I’m pretending to be anyone or in a role. I’m not being someone else, I’m just completely being myself. And in being myself and being true to myself, that in turn inspires and helps other people.”
On handling negative criticism: “Those are strangers, virtually that know nothing about you. You’re probably never gonna meet them in your life, so you can’t let that stuff affect you and let it hurt you. And another thing is, you have the control. Turn it off. If you don’t want to see something, if you don’t want to be involved, delete it.”
On fashion trends: “I don’t believe in trends. I think that anything that’s cool now is not gonna be cool later, and anything that was cool later will be cool now. It’s a constant cycle. Trend isn’t a thing, it’s constantly moving. You might as well just focus on wearing whatever you want because it’s gonna be old anyway. So, just do you.”
