Zendaya is a LITERAL queen!

In The Power of Young Hollywood feature for Variety Magazine, Zendaya had the opportunity to speak out about why she stayed at Disney so long after ‘Shake It Up‘ went off the air.

She reveals that she stayed on board with ‘K.C. Undercover’ after demanding to be a producer on the show.

“When I left Disney, there weren’t any families of color on the channel,” she says. “I thought that was a big reason why I wanted to come back. I think I’ve successfully made a show that not only allows for representation but sees girls in a powerful and strong position.”

We’re very happy you returned to Disney, Zendaya!
