So it's no surprise the Disney darling is weighing in on this year's #OscarsSoWhite controversy, noting the lack of minority representation in this year's nominees "feels like a step backwards."
Echoing the remarks of dozens of celebrities, the 19-year-old expressed her disappointment in the movie biz at the launch of her shoe collection Daya By Zendaya.
Zendaya spoke to People at her launch — which was planned by celebrity event planner David Tutera and will be featured on an upcoming episode of WEtv's David Tutera's CELEBrations this Spring — saying:
Say hello to your new Barbie dolls!
For the first time in 57 years, Mattel has decided to finally introduce new body types. And hopefully permanently!
The long overdue evolution comes on Wednesday, where you will find dolls with three new body figures: curvy, petite, and tall.
That's not to say the original Barbie won't still exist because she will, but kids will finally have the option to choose otherwise!!
And how fab do they look??
The three body types also feature different skin tones and hair, just like the original. Obviously there is a lot more to do, but it's a pleasant surprise seeing them with more realist bodies.
Evelyn Mazzocco, global SVP at Barbie, admitted:
Life in plastic, it's fantastic!
Justin Bieber had one of the most memorable years of his career thanks to his worldwide apology tour… but what we'll remember about 2015 is undoubtedly the moment the paparazzi caught his penis out and about while on vacation!
As we're sure you recall, Justin had a rather large What Do U Peen moment while he was skinny dipping in Bora Bora back in October, and thankfully the Internet is around to make sure you never forget.
Specifically, one novelty Instagram account called A Doll World After All takes iconic pop culture moments and recreates them with Barbies — and The Biebs' nude photo was no exception!
Ch-ch-check out Justin's nude pic in its plastic glory (below)!!!
Now this is just cool!
Mattel is offering an Ava DuVernay Barbie doll — and you can get it just in time for Christmas!
Fans of the Selma director have been working on the toy company to include her in their series of "Sheroes," a line of Barbie dolls inspired by real women who can then auction off a limited number — with proceeds going towards a charity of their choice.
It's a great idea for charity, and a wonderful idea for Barbie — and Ava's doll is AH-mazing!!
Ch-ch-check out the Ava DuVernay barbie (below)!!!
Take that, gender stereotypes!
FINALLY Mattel has decided to feature a boy in a Barbie commercial for the first time ever! They selected three adorable children to be in the ad for their line of Moschino dolls, but we have to say it's the tiny man who stole our heart!
In the spot, the cute kid exclaims:
"Moschino Barbie is so fierce!"
You're so right, little guy!
The camera TOTALLY loves this precious munchkin, especially when he winks at the end of the advertisement. Seriously, when you see this, you're going to die!
Ch-ch-check out the commercial (below) to see Mattel and Moschino totally shatter gender stereotypes!
What a beautiful moment!
Z took to Instagram, writing on one photo:
"When I was little I couldn't find a Barbie that looked like me, my…how times have changed. Thank you @barbie for this honor and for allowing me to be apart of your diversification and expansion of the definition of beauty. Can't wait to keep doing amazing things with you😘😘😘#besuper @luxurylaw @theshelbyswain"
While the powerful statement obviously wasn't lost on the 19-year-old, it also caught the eye of the ultimate Barbie, Nicki Minaj!
She took to social media on Sunday, saying:
