Zendaya is playing absolutely no games as the latest cover girl of Galore Magazine! The 18 year old stuns in several glamour filled editorial shots to go along with an in depth interview for the mag’s new October issue! Inside the mag Zendaya shows the world that although shes a tender 18, she’s wise well beyond her years. The Disney star reveals “My parents never really sheltered me from anything. They were always very open with me, which is probably why I’m able to be real.”
She goes on in the interview to discuss the now infamous confrontation she had with E!news anchor Giuliana Rancic after she made some rather unflattering racist comments about Zendaya’s dreadlocks at the 2015 Oscars. “My parents always taught me that there is knowledge in your voice. I could have clapped back and gone off. Of course I wanted to, everyone wants to do that. I just kept thinking there were other young people dealing with the same kind of issue who were watching me to see how I would respond.”
The teen star knows she’s a role model and believes in using her platform to help kids who deal with the same issues that she faces. The mag points out the honesty behind her social media post and questions if she thinks that “being too real” could have a negative impact. Zendaya responds “No. I think it would be worse to post things or say things that are fake. When people catch you not being the version of yourself you tried to portray, then people are like, ‘Who is this person?’ and I think that’s bad. I’d rather just be Zendaya the whole time and have no problems.”
