Zendaya Compares Herself to Tupac Shakur for 'Complex' Cover
Here’s what the 19-year-old actress/singer had to share with the mag:
On being a role model: “Of course. I think it’s a responsibility. But like Tupac Shakur, I’m a real model. Which means: I’m not pretending to be something that I’m not, because like he said, people are going to be disappointed when they find out who you are, because it’s not going to be what you presented to the world. So just keep it real. I’m a good kid and that’s all.”
On her upcoming album: “At this point, I’m trying to, at least for me, perfect everything. I’m a perfectionist. I’m a Virgo, so everything has to be exactly the way I want it. It’s also sticking with your vision. Once you really find that, a lot of people have opinions and you just got to really stay focused.”
