Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman is far from a one trick pony. This 23 year-old broke into the entertainment industry back in 2010 with her role in a Disney Channel sitcom Shake It Up. Since then she has expanded her talents from acting to singing, dancing, modeling, and producing. Even though she is very active on all her social media accounts, with over 66 million followers, she likes to live a low-key and private life.

Zendaya is very vocal about being a member of the Beyhive, and we don’t blame her! She admires black, powerfu,l and talented women who embrace and own every ounce of who they are, and that is exactly what Beyonce represents to her. Little did Zendaya know that the admiration was mutual, until she was asked to be a part of Beyonce’s Lemonade music video. In the filming of this she got to meet her idol, and later found out that she was chosen because Beyonce chose women she would want her daughter to look at.

2. Zendaya Prefers To Beat Her Own Face Over A MUA

If Zendaya wasn’t already a superstar, she would definitely be an insta-famous makeup artist. While most celebrities love having their glam team, Zendaya prefers to do her own makeup for events. Chances are some of your favorite red carpet looks of hers are ones she did herself. And we’re not talking about a basic eye look with a pretty lip, but an expert level smokey eye and airbrushed-looking contour. Can she drop a few makeup tutorials please? Asking for a friend…

3. She Loves To Draw

In her free time, you can catch her either drawing in a sketch book or writing poetry. This is a drawing she drew a few years ago in commemoration of the late Tupac Amaru Shakur. Even though he passed away the same year she was born, she feels a deep connection with him because he taught her how to always be authentic through how he carried himself in his own life.

4. Spiderman Is Her Favorite Superhero

Zendaya admits that she wasn’t always into superheroes, until she saw Andrew Garfield play Spiderman back in 2012 and since then has been hooked to the Marvel world. She is now lucky enough to star in Spiderman: Homecoming and Spiderman: Far From Home, and be the new Spiderman’s best friend. She believes Tom Holland is the perfect person for the role, and we agree!
