Zendaya May Just Be The Next Big Thing

Zendaya Coleman, simply known as Zendaya, is quickly becoming a household name.

At the young age of 17, the actress and singer has already starred in the Disney Channel show Shake It Up from 2010 to 2013, was a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, wrote the book Between U and Me: How to Rock Your Tween Years with Style and Confidence, released her debut album titled Zendaya, and already has a name for her fans – Zswaggers.

Since the release of her debut album Zendaya has been traveling the country performing, among others, her hit song “Replay.” On December 17 she performed at the AMP Radio’s Toys For Teens event in Universal City, California. Before that she performed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 29 at the RiverRink Opening Event.

The former Disney Channel star has also partnered with Colgate Optic White and their #BrilliantSmile campaign and is even asking followers to tweet photos of their “brilliant smile.”

Recently Joe Jonas, another former Disney star, made some comments about the pressures and expectations of working for the Disney Channel. In his tell-all Jonas said, “Being a part of the Disney thing for so long will make you not want to be this perfect little puppet forever. Eventually, I hit a limit and thought, Screw all this, I’m just going to show people who I am. I think that happened to a lot of us. Disney kids are spunky in some way, and I think that’s why Disney hires them. ‘Look, he jumped up on the table!’ Five, six, ten years later, they’re like, ‘Oh! What do we do?’ Come on, guys. You did this to yourselves.”

Like many other Disney stars, Zendaya didn’t agree with Jonas’ statements and took to her official Twitter to talk about it.

You can watch the video for Zendaya’s single “Replay” in the video below.

    Wtf? No she’s not? Her album sales did TERRIBLE, and the album was a flop and only had one hit song. She’s nothing but Bella Thorne’s shadow

      I disagree with you Alyssa , Zendaya’s album did very good and in my opinion she’s doing way better than Bella . Bella can barely sing Zendayas way better

        Now the only question is… when she, like most Disney females, removes her self from the “child entertainer” as most do at some point to enter the _Adult_ Entertainment world… will she adjust ?? Thats the question. So many have fell into sex, drugs, and propaganda …music is a quick world to fall into that slanderous world.

      look, I’m a Zswagger and I’m sorry for u that u don’t like whatever the case may be. and she is not “Bella Thorne’s shadow”. so long story short ALL of u should keep your nasty comments, dislikes and damn mouths shut! if I lived in the USA I’d be the best of friends with Zendaya, so control yourselves.

    I think her and Bella Thorne are both really bad enterainers. Sorry, but they just aren’t talented. The only reason they’re famous is because Disney has been holding their hands all this time, and when they let go these two are going to fail miserably in the real entertainment industry. But who knows? The entertainment industry (more specifically the music industry) is turn already tutning to shit.

    More Disney Lips Singing ? And over-hype Disney tunes ? I’ll be sleep under my rock *yawning* 😐

    Bella out of any current Disney star has the most followers on twitter, and has a really huge fanbase. I think Disney didn’t make her into the new Miley Cyrus like they said they would, what I think Disney should’ve done was give Bella her own show, and do more promotion on her, cause she has potential to be a really big star: great stage presence, great acting chops, and she’s likeable; all those things Zendaya lacks, it seems that Zendaya is trying to be like MJ and Beyonce and it just isn’t working

    Zen is one of those few Disney stars that will be able to make that transition to adult stardom without falling into that whole “I’m gonna drink and get high to prove I’m a grown up.” thing. Her dad is always right there to make sure that doesn’t happen. She’s a pretty good actress and a great singer. For those who disagree, you’re opinion really doesn’t matter to me.
