Zendaya Coleman News, Gossip and Photos
Zendaya Coleman has pulled out of the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic, titled “Aaliyah: The Princess Of R&B.” Zendaya was slated to play the role of Aaliyah in the movie, which is set to tell the story of Aaliyah’s life and career leading up to her tragic passing in a plane crash at the age of 22.
Zendaya received a lot of hate for taking on the role, but that is reportedly not the reason for her leaving the movie. According to sources Lifetime did not secure the rights to Aaliyah’s music and Zendaya didn’t want to do the movie without Aaliyah’s songs.
A source told the press:
Aaliyah has always been an inspiration to Zendaya. She was honored to portray her and pay tribute to her. If she is going to do it, she wants to do it right.
Lifetime released the following statement about Zendaya leaving the movie:
We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold.
What a bummer! Hopefully the music rights are obtained and Zendaya comes back to the movie. If not, who else would you like to see in the role of Aaliyah?
Zendaya Coleman just had a performance at Hollister House in Santa Monica, California. Her performance was held by the beach on June 25, 2014.
Zendaya took to the stage sporting a fun fashion and sang all of her popular tracks for fans. The Hollywood Records artist is reportedly working on a new album – fingers crossed it arrives in early 2015.

Zendaya previously starred in the hit Disney Channel Original Series “Shake It Up,” and her Disney Channel Original Movie “Zapped” debuted this weekend. Learn about Zendaya’s “Zapped” kiss with Spencer Boldman here!
Zendaya will also star in the brand new Disney Channel Original Series “K.C. Undercover.” Zendaya will play an undercover spy, and she is currently hard at work learning martial arts for the role!
Zendaya Coleman is working on a new Disney Channel Original Series called “K.C. Undercover.” In the show Zendaya’s character K.C. finds out that her parents are spies, and she goes undercover as a spy as well!
Zendaya is in the process of learning martial arts for the series, which she is also a producer on. She spilled that while she is doing her best to master martial arts the network has already hired some stunt doubles since she won’t be able to film every stunt herself!
The “Shake It Up” and “Zapped” actress also made it a point that her new Disney Channel character CAN’T dance, which is totally unlike Zendaya in real life! She spilled during an interview with And Pop:
People already have seen me dance, so I made it a fact that [K.C.] is probably not a good dancer. Like, in the pilot she does a tango [but] the only dance she can do is ballroom dancing. Other than that, she’s really awkward and stiff.
It will be fun to watch Zendaya play someone totally out of character in her new Disney Channel Original Series “K.C. Undercover.” Other actors in the show include:
Kadeem Hardison (A Different World) Craig Cooper (dad)
Tammy Townsend (The Client List) Kira Cooper (mom)
Kamil McFadden (House of Payne)
Veronica Dunne (Our Wild Hearts)
Get ready to see Zendaya’s new show when it arrives on the Disney Channel in 2015!
Spencer Boldman and Zendaya Coleman made the cutest couple in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Zapped,” but it turns out fans didn’t get to see the romantic kiss the pair shared! Spencer revealed that he and Z kissed for the cameras, but the Disney Channel dropped the kiss from the final cut of the DCOM!
The “Lab Rats” actor joked with Hollywood Life about the kiss being cut from the movie, spilling:
I guess I wasn’t very good at it! I do kiss her cheek [in the movie], which is really intense.
We’re getting “High School Musical” vibes about this – Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens didn’t kiss in the first movies either! Any chance Spencer and Zendaya will become the next Disney Channel Original Movie couple? Take our poll!
