Zendaya has slammed Hollywood’s beauty standards. Perhaps the ‘Greatest Showman’ star tinks that it is entirely wrong on how she is ‘HOLLYWOOD’s ACCEPTABLE VERSION OF A BLACK GIRL’. Regarding this Zendaya has urged to change these beauty standards by hollywood in future.
Speaking at 2018 BeautyCon in New York City, the 21-year-old actress Zendaya reportedly said that, “I am Hollywood’s acceptable version of a black girl, and that has got to change.”
Further she added, “There is definitely ‘hood’ in me and it will never leave. It’s part of who I am, as it is part of my family. I was born and raised in Oakland, all my family is from there … and they’re not from the Oakland Hills, we are from the hoods of Oakland. It’s something that I’m proud of and I’m lucky to be where I’m from. My aunties held Black Panther party meetings in the downstairs basement of our house that I grew up in.”
Zendaya added, “I think I’ve always been a grandma. I’ve always been a very old woman inside a younger person’s body. Of course, I have my young-people tendencies; we all have those. But at the end of the day, I’ve always been called a grandma. I don’t like going out. I enjoy the company of my TV and myself .”
