Zendaya gives us regular doses of life.
The 19-year-old is incredibly poised, focused, and self-confident. All these reasons and more explain why she’s been able to take charge of her career by becoming the face of Cover Girl and return to the Disney Channel as a co-producer.
For the cover of Cosmopolitan the actress talked about her recent business decision, specifically concerning a member of her team. “I didn’t like my hair and makeup one time on a photo shoot, and my publicist told me, ‘You should just be happy with it — they haven’t had a black girl on the cover since forever,’” Coleman said. “She’s no longer my publicist.”
Adding, “The only way I was going to come back to the Disney Channel was if I was in a position of more power. One thing that is really important to me is diversity on the channel. It’s hard as a young person of a different ethnicity or background to look at the TV and not see anyone who looks like you. Representation is important.”
In addition to modeling for major makeup brands and producing/starring in the new series called K.C. Undercover, she’s also slaying the fashion game attending hot ticket events, as a front row guest.
Season two of K.C. Undercover returns June 19 on the Disney Channel.
