I hope this book will help girls through the tougher parts of the tween years and help them appreciate the fun parts.”

“In Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence” will hit shelves on August 6th.
Zendaya has the power of the Mouse behind her while she competes on “Dancing with the Stars”!
AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman caught up with many of Zendaya’s co-stars at the first ever Radio Disney Music Awards, where they cheered on the “DWTS” breakout star.
“She’s been dancing since she was little, so I knew that she had it in the bag,” Bella Thorne, who co-stars with Zendaya on “Shake It Up,” said.
Does Bella think Zendaya will dance her way to the mirrorball trophy?
“Of course! She’s got this!” she added.
Caroline Sunshine, who also stars on “Shake It Up,” has high hopes for her co-star.
“She’s doing amazing every week, so I really hope we have the mirrorball trophy on the set of ‘Shake It Up’ soon,” she told Laura.
And “DWTS” alum and fellow “Shake It Up” star Roshon Fegan warned that she better take home the crown!
“If she doesn’t, oh, I don’t know what I’m gonna do! But it’s not gonna be very happy!” Roshon, who came in sixth place during Season 14, joked on the red carpet. “She’s so amazing.”
Adding, “It’s about time a Disney star takes home the mirrorball.”

Zendaya and partner Val Chmerkovskiy are ruling the leader board this season on Dancing With The Stars and JJJ can’t stop watching them.
Val, 26, caught up with Wetpaint about being paired with the 16-year-old actress, and youngest contestant ever on the show.
“She has a great attitude, and she wants to put in the work. At first, I was hesitant with this partnership because I’m a very passionate dancer. For me, ballroom dance is about a man and a woman and all of the chemistry between those two. So being partnered with a 16-year-old teen sensation was difficult in the beginning,” he confessed. He added, “It’s been a challenge, but I think it’s been great. I love working with Zendaya and dancing with her. The friendship that we’re building is great.”
Val dished about the upcoming hip-hop week, “Oh, yeah, we’re going to kill it. The point is, the more talent you give me, the more work I’m going to put in. So it’s really motivating for me to have someone who can do the choreography, but I want the fans to know she’s not picking this up in 20 minutes. She puts in four or five hours a work every day. We’re not taking any short cuts. None of this is easy for her.”

Zendaya may be gearing up for her stint on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’ but that doesn’t mean her music and acting career is on hold! Watch the newest video from the ‘Shake It Up’ star and get her exact beauty look!
Zendaya and her co-star and BFF, Bella Thorne, released a new music video for “Contagious Love” on March 1. The song will appear on the ‘Shake It Up’ soundtrack. In the video, both girls look gorgeous and now celebrity hairstylist Araxi Lindsey is teaching you how to get Zendays’s exact hair look!
“Zendaya naturally has amazing hair. She loves movement and easy flowing tresses,” Araxi said.
Zendaya’s Hair — Get Her Flowing Waves
“1. To enhance her beauty, I first applied White Sands Orchids Oil to smooth Zendaya’s tresses. Orchids Oil is not heavy or greasy. It’s a light weight smoothing serum that smells amazing.
2. Next, I sectioned her hair in two & began flat ironing with a 1″ ceramic iron. I usually take small sections and run the flat iron twice from the roots to the ends of her hair.
3. Then, I take small rectangular sections of her hair and put curves on the ends using just the iron.
4. Finally, I sprayed the crown of her hair with White Sands Stuck Up Mega Hold Hairspray to keep flyaways in place. This hairspray is a perfect styling tool for a light all day finishing hold. Zendaya’s hair was able to keep movement and body for a full 10 hour day of dancing, singing and acting.”
Zendaya stars as Rocky Blue, along with Bella Thorne, who stars as CeCe Jones on the hit Disney Channel Show SHAKE IT UP. SHAKE IT UP is about two young girls whose dream is to dance. Getting a job on the dance show SHAKE IT UP they find their dream has come true.
ASSIGNMENT X sat down recently with Zendaya to talk about the show.
ASSIGNMENT X: What do you like about SHAKE IT UP?
ZENDAYA: I like the fact, especially this season that we are getting into real issues. Real issues that teenage girls and families and people all over the world have to deal with. And it’s really nice to see that Rocky and CeCe are not perfect, they have problems. They go through the same things that everyone else goes through and they have to deal with them. I like that it makes our characters real and more relatable to everyone out there.
AX: Are you recognize more now when you out?
ZENDAYA: Oh yeah, definitely. I love it. I love meeting my fans. That’s the best part.
AX: Any weird fan encounters?
ZENDAYA: I actually have a lot of fun fan encounters. There’s been times when I’ve been at amusements parks and kids cry. It’s amazing. I think everywhere I go that every encounter with a fan is special. Every single fan is special. I always try my best to see as many as possible even when I’m trying to rush or go somewhere I try to stop and make sure I do that as that is why I am doing this. They are why I have my job and while I’m able to do it.
AX: Davis (Cleveland) character (Flynn Jones) is like the comic on the show?
ZENDAYA: Yeah. He’s hilarious.
AX: Is that how he is on the set?
ZENDAYA: He is just like that character. Honestly, Davis I’m 100% convinced that he is not 10 years old. There is like a little 30-year-old man stuck inside of him. (Laughs) I hang out with him like a teenager and any of my other friends and he is so smart. He is so beyond his years and it’s actually pretty astounding to me because he is so smart. I love being around him because he is such a cool kid!
AX: You and Bella (Thorne) did that one song in the fashion video (FASHION IS MY KRYPTONITE) where you act like models. Have you ever done modeling, as you’re tall enough to do runway work? Did you like wearing all those clothes?
ZENDAYA: I loved it. I’m a tomboy honestly and I hate wearing dresses and dressing up. I’m like ugh I’d rather stay home and be in sweatpants all day, but when it comes down to girly stuff I can get really girly. And I love girly stuff, so it’s kind of weird. I have my girly moments and I have my tomboy moments. That was definitely a girly moment of mine where I was like ‘I feel fabulous!’ I was just twirling around and having a great time.
