Actor, model, singer, dancer and activist, Zendaya, debuted her July 2017 Vogue cover on her social media with the proud caption: I really don’t have any words right now…I’m grateful, honored and a million other beautiful things that wouldn’t fit in a caption. I’M ON VOGUE Y’ALL!!!!

The now 20-year-old former child star has turned into a sophisticated woman right in front of our eyes, but don’t let her age fool you — she’s been the boss for quite some time.

Zendaya covers all aspects of her life in the Vogue interview, including how much of a role she played, even as a teenager, negotiating her terms for the Disney show, K.C. Undercover. She had already proved star worthy to the Network with her hit show Shake it Up. Now she wanted to name the terms for the next project, which included making her a producer (at 16 years old!) and changing the name of the show, originally called Super Awesome Katy.

“I got in a room with the heads of Disney Channel, I was like, ‘The title is whack. That’s gonna change. Do I look like a Katy to you?'”

She also insisted the the show feature a family of color, as well as other conditions.

“I wanted to make sure that she wasn’t good at singing or acting or dancing. That she wasn’t artistically inclined. I didn’t want them to all of a sudden be like, ‘Oh, yeah, and then she sings this episode!’ No. She can’t dance; she can’t sing. She can’t do that stuff. There are other things that a girl can be.”

“I want her to be martial arts–trained. I want her to be able to do everything that a guy can do. I want her to be just as smart as everybody else. I want her to be a brainiac. I want her to be able to think on her feet. But I also want her to be socially awkward, not a cool kid. I want her to be normal with an extraordinary life.”

And she got it. All of it. According to Zendaya, speaking her mind was second nature.

“A lot of people don’t realize their power. I have so many friends who say yes to everything or feel like they can’t stand up for themselves in a situation. No: You have the power.”

A powerful and inspirational message for any age. The article covers much of the star’s childhood, including interviews from parents and loved ones. The debacle with Giuliana Rancic and her faux pas about her faux locks, as well as her love of fashion.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
