| Filed under: TV NewsExclusives!DisneyPerezTVTaylor SwiftCharityZendaya

Fierce!

On Sunday, we caught up with Zendaya for an EXCLUSIVE chat at the Children Mending Heart's 7th Annual Empathy Rocks Fundraiser in Malibu, California.

The Disney darling received the Empathy Rockstar Award from the organization — and we are not shocked one bit.

In the last couple months, the K.C Undercover actress has graduated from high school, took down misogynistic internet trolls, and starred in Taylor Swift's Bad Blood music video. What a boss!

To us, the fashionista is an incredible role model — but she'd rather be referred to as "real" model like Tupac Shakur. Could she get any cooler?!

It could just be us — but we think Zendaya should totally whip up another book sometime soon!

This girl really SLAYS at everything she does.

Be sure to ch-ch-check out what else the real model had to say (above)!

Taylor Swift truly is a flawless human being.

On Thursday it was revealed that Taylor, who has demonstrated a strong affinity for charity in the past, donated a ton of money to a family who went through a horrific ordeal. Essentially, firefighter Aaron Van Riper discovered his son and wife in a HORRIBLE car wreck after responding to a routine 911 call.

Aaron said of the incident:

"It's my family. My wife was laying there on the ground. I don't know how either one of them lived. There was nothing left of that car. Once I saw my son … I started going into a little bit of a panic mode."

Wow. we can't imagine the pain and horror Van Riper experienced when he first arrived on the scene.

Luckily for Aaron's family, they survived the crash — the negative side is they went underwent major injuries. To make the matter even worse, the family doesn't have health insurance so the firefighter set up a GoFundMe page.

Well, imagine the fam's surprise when they discovered that Taylor donated a WHOPPING 15,000 dollars to their page!!! So AMAZING! A source close to Tay confirmed the donation was in fact made by the songstress, though we never doubted her kindness!

An insider close to Aaron says the daddy is beyond thrilled and grateful for the help and that his loved ones are slowly but surely recovering.

We wish the best to Van Riper's family!!!

monica lewinsky anti bullying role

Monica Lewinsky will now be inspiring more than just Caitlyn Jenner!

Last week, it was revealed that the former Olympian was moved by the public speaker's recent TED Talk about anti-bullying — and now it seems she's joined Bystander Revolution as a strategic advisor.

AH-Mazing!

The organization, founded by MacKenzie Bezos, is an anti-bullying movement that inspires people to combat bullying with kindness and inclusion.

She shared:

"Often being publicly ridiculed or witnessing someone else being ridiculed can push us into silence. Many of us find ourselves as targets or bystanders in the online world of cyber bullying and digital harassment and we freeze."

Very inneresting!

ICYMI: Monica was the former White House intern that was publicly shamed for her "relations" with President Clinton back in the 1990s.

She stated:

"My experience of being cyber bullied and shamed for nearly two decades has given me a unique perspective. Having come out on the other side, I want to help other victims of the shame game survive and thrive."

Wow! It seems the advocate is refusing to be defined by her public image — talk about an inspirational role model.

She continued:

"By stepping into compassion for both ourselves and others, we can begin to shift the culture. I'm passionate about joining forces with Bystander Revolution because their mission is to help people see all the ways they can be empowered to take that small, but impactful, step."

Fierce! We hope many will learn from your powerful message.

This announcement comes mere weeks after Monica was a part of a big celebration for #DancingMan who was cruelly bullied on 4Chan.

Way to make a difference girl! Know how proud we are of you!
