Yesterday we chatted live with Zendaya and her fans on Facebook. And it was obviously incredible and amazing and everything we dreamed it would be. Even though we already knew a lot about the Shake It Up star, we were impressed by how much more we learned during the live chat. Almost as impressed as we were with her debut album earlier this year. Seriously, listen to it (on repeat) if you haven’t already.
Check out the out the five best things that Zendaya shared with us!
1. She doesn’t play favorites when it comes to her talents.
When one of her fans asked her if she preferred to dance or sing, and Zendaya responded that she loves to do both, equally.
2. She’s tight with her family.
While she’s known for being onscreen best friends with Bella Thorne on Shake It Up, Zendaya let us know that her real life BFF is none other than her niece. Family first!
3. She’s home schooled.
She’s quite busy, so she goes to high school from home. She even told us that she needed to go finish up her homework after the chat was over!
4. She’s Team iPhone.
In the eternal iPhone vs. Android battle, Zendaya says that she’s a supporter of the iPhone. Me too, but that’s only because I couldn’t imagine a life without Emoji.
5. She’s a vegetarian.
We learned that she’s a vegetarian and, when a fan asked her why, she responded that she made the choice mostly because of animals rights issues. Aw!
