Zendaya Coleman Speaks Out

In a recent interview with Yahoo Style, Zendaya Coleman gave us some insight on her feelings about Raven Symone, Drake and race in America.

Here’s what Zendaya had to say about fellow Disney star and friend, Raven after the “That’s So Raven” star stated that she didn’t want to be labeled as African-American,

She’s grown. She can say whatever she wants. Everyone has an opinion. Opinions are like buttholes. Everyone has one and everyone thinks everyone else’s stinks.

Zendaya has said that she wants to continue to be part of the Disney family, she is currently starring in and producing the Disney Channel Original Series “K.C. Undercover”. She is also working on her next album and hoping to work with Drake.

Here’s what she says about Drake,

He has to know I’m obsessed with him

Recently Zendaya has been receiving heavy backlash after she was cast as Aaliyah in a “Lifetime” biopic even though she backed out of the role, she has been criticized for not being “black enough” to play the role.

This is what she had to say about the criticism,

It doesn’t make sense. Here’s how I put it: The first African-American President of the United States is half-black. So is he not the first black president? Is he just the first half-black President? Do we take that credit away from him? No. Whoever is supposed to play Aaliyah- whether they are half-Asian or whatever- it’s not about that. It’s about doing that with respect and integrity.

We are proud of Zendaya for standing up for what she believes in, she is a very strong young woman!
