Teen Star Zendaya is having a moment. In fact, she’s having several moments. The former Disney Channel star was runner up in Season 16 of Dancing With The Stars, is on tour promoting her album, and she’s about to star in the June 27 Disney Channel Original Movie, Zapped. The multifaceted teen is everywhere and ready to take over the world!
In Zapped, Zendaya plays normal teen Zoey Stevens whose life gets turned upside down when a dog-training app on her smartphone starts controlling the boys around her. If she had a magical app, boy control isn’t what Zandaya would want. She told me, “I would have teleportation app that could teleport me places. I think it would be very, very helpful, considering my schedule.” The busy starlet took time to answer Channel Guide’s 7 Questions while taking a quick break from dance rehearsal.
1) You’re at a magazine rack and can only pick three titles. Which ones do you choose?
I would probably choose a fashion magazine like Vogue or Elle. I would also choose a tabloid, the gossip and all of that because no one takes them seriously, but they’re interesting to read. That’s for sure. And probably a teen magazine like Seventeen for fun girl stuff.
2) What three things do you need in your fridge or pantry at all times?
I’ve got to have ice cream, but technically that the freezer. The refrigerator’s not really where I get my food. I’ve got to have Nutella, hot chips and ice cream.
3) Is there a movie you can watch over and over again?
I like comedies. Anything that can make me laugh really, really hard. That’s what I like to watch over and over again.
4) What song is stuck in your head right now?
I just recorded a new song with Bobby Brackins and Jeremih and it’s stuck in my head. And that’s a good thing.
5) What has been your strangest or funniest fan encounter?
The strangest? I once met a group of girls in the bathroom. Nice. We were in line and we all related. We all understood what we were going through, so there was that. I don’t have crazy encounters, they’re usually fun.
6) Tell us about a time when you were starstruck?
I’ve been star struck a lot in my life. But, when I met Stevie Wonder, I couldn’t speak.
7) If you could choose any one person to perform with, who would it be?
I would have loved to perform with Michael Jackson. He’s my number one. Other than that, Beyoncé.
