'Spider-Man Homecoming's Zendaya Has To Keep Explaining That She Doesn't Play Mary Jane Watson

'Spider-Man Homecoming's Zendaya Has To Keep Explaining That She Doesn't Play Mary Jane Watson

We couldn’t even count on two hands how many times Zendaya has had to answer this question: Do you play Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man Homecoming?

The answer is no. The answer has always been no.

Even though she could play the role, she’s not. She’s Michelle.

“My character is 100 percent Michelle, that’s her name, I promise I’m not lying,” she told MTV once again last weekend. “She’s definitely a different character.”

Zendaya adds about Michelle: “This is a character I can have fun with and just really create what I wanted to make her and the director a lot of really cool ideas about how to make her weird and interesting and cool.

“She says weird things at the wrong time, but that’s why people like her.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming is out on July 7th.

This Was Bella Thorne's First Friend in Hollywood

This Was Bella Thorne's First Friend in Hollywood

In a new video interview, Famous in Love‘s Bella Thorne opened up about her firsts — first movie obsession, first time she was starstruck, and her very first friend in Hollywood.

While all of the answers are funny and surprising, one of them is undoubtedly the sweetest: Bella‘s first friend in Hollywood was Zendaya.

Zendaya and I met at the test for Shake it Up,” Bella explains to Teen Vogue. “We instantly hit it off, and then we were really, really close since that.”

Aww! We can’t say we’re surprised (Bella has even promised that Zendaya will guest-star on Famous in Love next season) but it’s definitely nice to have it confirmed.

It’s sweet that as far as these women have come and as much as their lives have been shaken up (pun absolutely intended), their friendship hasn’t been.

Inside the photo gallery, see the cutest flashback photos of Bella and Zendaya together…

Zendaya Loses It When Rihanna Posts About Her & It's All Of Us!

Zendaya Loses It When Rihanna Posts About Her & It's All Of Us!

Rihanna and Zendaya are both one-named legends, and they are also huge fans of one another — and they are expressing it!

Rihanna posted an Instagram Tuesday (May 2) of Zendaya at the Met Gala (looking radiant with her afro and draping gown) with the caption “brown goddess.”

When Zendaya saw it, she absolutely lost it. “Y’all…..this is not a drill….Ri to the muthaf–kin Ri,” she tweeted in response.

THEN, as if that weren’t enough, Fifth Harmony‘s Normani Kordei (who is a queen in her own right; she just earned a perfect score on Dancing With the Stars!) came into the mix, tweeting at Zendaya that she absolutely deserves the praise, be it from Rihanna or anyone else!!

YOU GUYS. Our hearts just can’t take much more.

brown goddess.

Zendaya, Yara Shahidi & More Celebs React to the Death of Jordan Edwards

On Sunday, Jordan Edwards, a 15-year-old African American boy, was shot and killed by a police officer in a suburb of Dallas, Texas, and celebrities like Zendaya, Yara Shahidi, Rowan Blanchard and Miles Brown are speaking out.

The New York Times reports Jordan was in a vehicle in which an officer fired upon.

Though, the initial account of the shooting suggested that the vehicle was traveling toward the officer in an “aggressive manner,” Police Chief Jonathan Haber said upon reviewing video of the incident, it was determined the the vehicle was actually moving away from the officer who fired.

According to the Associated Press, the Dallas County medical examiner has ruled the shooting a “homicide” and the officer has been fired.

While the case is still unfolding, a number of young celebrities are taking to social media to express their outrage. Here are some online reactions, from black-ish star Yara Shahidi to singer and actress Zendaya.

Yara expressed incredulity at the incident.

Zendaya had a minimalist, powerful response.

"Black boys deserve to grow up too."

Rowan Blanchard also took to her Instagram Story to express her feelings.

Yara‘s black-ish co-star, Miles Brown, was deeply saddened.

Our hearts are with Jordan‘s family.
