Zendaya is in the newest issue of Rolling Out Magazine. You can view the photoshoot pictures below and read the interesting interview as well!





 

Zendaya couldn’t control her laughter. During an exclusive photo shoot with rolling out at McCadden Space Studio in Los Angeles, she began teasing her stylist, Luxury Law, for borrowing an article of clothing from a person who just happened to be on set. Her stylist made a makeshift turban out of the person’s neck scarf.

Zendaya found herself amused by the random act and joked that her stylist would borrow a stranger’s shoes, car, or dog in order to get the perfect look.

“Hey, you don’t need your dog do you? If not, [Luxury Law] would just borrow him for a second,” Zendaya joked as a woman walked past the studio with her puppy in tow.

It was the one moment of teenage banter at a photo shoot in which Zendaya was strictly about her business.

When the cameras were on, she never lost focus. The actress, singer and dancer posed with the confidence and grace of a seasoned model. Effortlessly, she portrayed an array of emotions with her body and facial expressions — a skill that often takes years for even the most prominent celebrities to perfect. When she’s in her zone, there’s nothing to suggest that she isn’t a 27-year-old trapped in the body of 17-year-old kid.

It’s important to remain levelheaded in such a topsy-turvy business.

The last 10 days must have been a whirlwind for Zendaya. She began last week by traveling across the nation to promote her new Disney film, Zapped, which premieres June 27.

By midweek, it was announced that she would be the new face of Madonna’s fashion line, Material Girl. And the week ended with adulation and controversy after it was revealed that Zendaya got the coveted role in an upcoming biopic based on the life of the late, great Aaliyah.

It’s a dream role for any actress to portray such an iconic figure. During our interview, she took a moment to explain how she was inspired by Aaliyah. “I’m inspired by a lot of Aaliyah’s music and her sound and her look,” Zendaya said. “Her voice was soft and she had a wide range of fans because of her look and sound. I definitely look up to her.”

Twitter critics came up with ludicrous reason as to why she didn’t deserve the part. Cultural blogger and former Vibe Vixen editor Starr Rhett shared her thoughts on the negative Twitter reactions.

“The backlash that Zendaya received was silly but predictable,” Rhett says. “I think Zendaya may have gotten backlash because she’s young and many of Aaliyah’s fans, who are in their mid to late 20s and 30s, may not know who she is [yet]. Think about it; she beat out some stiff competition with whom we are definitely more familiar. So keeping that in mind, I have faith that she will do a good job.”
READ THE REST…

When it comes to crushes, one moment they can make you feel like you’re floating on a million clouds, and the next, make you realize whey a crush is called a crush. Even Zendaya Coleman, the girl with the killer swag, outfits you die over, and major confidence has experienced the does he/doesn’t he like me doubts that can make you feel insecure around a crush.

“I’ve had to tell someone I liked them before, but I ended up waiting way too long which was dumb,” Zendaya explains. “By the time I told them how I felt, I was already over it.”

That experience helped prepare Z for her new Disney Channel original movie Zapped. Her character, Zoe is crushing on a guy but doesn’t know what he’s thinking. But then, she discovers an app on her phone that can control the entire male species!

While we alllll wish we could download that app IRL, the reality is you won’t find anything in the app store that can magically transform your love life (even you, Afterlight!). But Zendaya has some pretty awesome advice that just might!

“Just be honest,” Zendaya says. “We kill ourselves trying to guess what the other person is thinking instead of just going up to them and asking.”

Okay, but how do you do that without coming off as desperate or just totally awk? “Keep it casual,” Z explains. “’I like you. If you don’t like me cool, and if you do, cool.’”

Earlier this month, there were very mixed reactions to news that Disney Star Zendaya would play Aaliyah in an upcoming biopic, but none of that matters now, since the 17-year-old has officially dropped out of the project.

Zendaya told MTV News that the film was being pieced together too quickly, and she no longer wanted to be a part of it.

“I just felt the project wasn’t 100 percent there. I feel [that] production wise everything just felt a little rushed,” she told MTV News on the BET Awards red carpet on Sunday evening (June 29).

“And I think because she’s someone I admire and I love so much, it can’t be done halfway, or not to the standards I think it should be done at, so I just decided not to do it,” Zendaya said, adding that she would still be up to the task of playing Aaliyah further down the road.

“By all means, when the right project comes along and it’s done the right way I’ll be the first person ready to play Aaliyah, but this wasn’t the right one for me. I’ve been into Aaliyah since I was little, so there wasn’t too much getting into character. I always pretend I’m her anyway.”

“106 & Park” host Keshia Chante was also in consideration in the role, but so far there have been no details on which actress will replace Zendaya for the part.
