Zendaya Turns 21, Explains Why She Won't Start Drinking

Zendaya is turning 21 today (September 1), but don’t expect her to be going crazy at the clubs now that she can legally have a drink.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming actress wrote in a blog post that she doesn’t plan on drinking even though she is of age.

“Today I turn 21! Holla!!! But just because I’m now the legal drinking age, doesn’t mean I’m going to start throwing ‘em back. I don’t plan to start drinking,” she wrote on Zendaya.com.

“My life is too stressful to need help with relaxing by having a cocktail,” she added. “This industry is way too nuts for me to not be in control of myself and my decisions, so I just don’t want to introduce drinking! Plus, I don’t want drinking to become a vice. Why try something if you don’t need it?!”

    lots of people can live without alcohol, it’s useless and just leads to bad decisions. she’s making a good one by not going near it

  • Ulysses Joyce

    It sounds like her PR team told her to say it ,she will be drinking in secret.I do not drink much but I do not tell people I do not drink much.

    That what kills alot of straight edge people ,making them sound like pretension dicks.

  • Ulysses Joyce

    uhm no since she does this because of her PR team.Aot of people thought Tiger Woods was a good role model for boys but the facade .

    This seems this is the case.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    BS….She’s a fake.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Lying skank.

  • Brigitte Wohnthiernicht

    I don’t get it. What a weird statement. Doesn’t she trust/control herself? To start drinking a cocktail every once in a while doesn’t make you an alcoholic.

  • Harley Parry

    I also remember debby saying something like that and we know how well that worked out.

  • Ulysses Joyce

    oh how I remember that .oh boy was she a headcase.Maybe after you turn 18 you should maybe not have the happy Disney pr team.
