At just 18 years old Zendaya is taking control of her career. Her first order of business? Ditch that Aaliyah biopic that was making her “miserable”.
There was a brief moment in time when the Disney actress was set to star as Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic, but after endless backlash and the disapproval of the late singer’s family, Zendaya decided the project wasn’t right for her. “I think that it is extremely important to follow your gut, follow your Olivia Pope gut … I didn’t feel good about it and I feel like it’s important for me to stand up for myself,” Z told HipHollywood, “I’m just lucky that I have people around me that agree with me and were on my side. I have great parents who listen to me and they saw me be miserable and not be happy and not wake up and want to do something and that’s why you have to be able to trust yourself to make those decisions.”
Zendaya is also making grown woman decision on her new show K.C. Undercover. Not only is she the star, but she’s also a producer on the project. Check back to HipHollywood on Friday to see our exclusive set visit with the multi-talented teen.
