In case you haven’t heard, Zendaya just released her very own app!
The 20-year-old actress/singer’s Zendaya: The App is available on iTunes now!
“I wanted a place where I could make my own content and really be in control of what I create and what comes out from me,” Z told Teen Vogue. “I really thought the best way to control that and make pieces that entertain people and show more about myself was through an app because that’s where kids’ heads are at now — it’s all digital, it’s all media, it’s all forward-thinking. I want to use it as a platform to not only just [show] things about myself, but also to bring awareness to people that I think are important. I think it’s going to evolve into something really really special.”
She also shared, “I feel like the biggest career highlight for me is when a young girl, young person of color or a parent comes up to me and says thank you for what you do for women, or thank you for what you do for black girls, or thank you for what you did for my daughter that really helped her gained confidence when she really needed it — stuff like that really moves me and that’s what I appreciate and need as fuel to keep going.”

“Honestly, a lot of people will get to understand me not just on a deeper level, but on a more personal level,” Zendaya also said. “A lot of people don’t get to see who I am as a human being. I just like making people laugh and making people smile. There’s a lot of goofy stuff on the app, a lot of funny stuff, a lot of behind-the-scenes kind of stuff, to everything I do. … [I want] people to see what really goes into my job and my work, so young people can aspire to start attaining their dreams and start doing it at a younger age and see what kind of work it really is.”
