Zendaya has been knocking it out of the park. From slaying on the red carpet to starring in the upcoming "Spider-Man: Homecoming," film, she shows no sign of stopping.
And now, she's added yet another incredible feather to her cap: Zendaya is on the cover of Vogue!
In the interview, which focuses in large part on her activism, she discusses how she went toe-to-toe with Disney executives in order to make her TV show "K.C. Confidential" more empowering to young women.
In order to have a more influential role in the show, she requested that she be made a producer. YES. AT 16.
In order to have more control over the show, she marched into the office and demanded she be named a producer. Again, AT 16.
She also wanted her character to be multifaceted and have skills girls aren't usually celebrated for having.
“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,” she said to Vogue.
And she carried that rulebreaking perspective to "Spider-Man: Homecoming" by requesting that her character not wear makeup.
Her character Michelle, who attends Peter Parker's high school, will also break a lot of rules about how female characters should act, by being "an eccentric outsider type who speaks in sarcastic one-liners," according to Vogue.
Who knows what this producer/actress/designer/dancer/singer will do next!
Whatever it may be, we know it's going to be a hit.
