Pete Davidson, Shawn Mendes & Amandla Stenberg named Variety's Power of Young Hollywood


Amandla Stenberg, Shawn Mendes and Ariana Grande's fiance are the cover stars of Variety's Power of Young Hollywood issue! 19 year-old Amandla is a respected actor and outspoken activist, 20-year old Shawn Mendes is a Billboard-charting artist, and 24-year old Pete Davidson has a famous girlfriend.

Pete on 45: "Dude, any president that is taking pictures of himself on a private plane eating Kentucky Fried Chicken is a f—ing psycho. What are you? A f—ing Kardashian?"





Shawn on working hard: "People forget how important groundwork is — physically being in every city, meeting people, like in a presidential campaign."






Amandla on being biracial: “Something interesting has happened with me and Yara and Zendaya — there is a level of accessibility of being biracial that has afforded us attention in a way that I don’t think would have been afforded to us otherwise. Me and Yara and Zendaya are perceived in the same way, I guess, because we are lighter-skinned black girls and we fill this interesting place of being accessible to Hollywood and accessible to white people in a way that darker-skinned girls are not afforded the same privilege.”

Amandla on coming out: “I wanted to be transparent about who I was and stand with pride and hopefully, through that, make other people feel proud of their identities. There was definitely a little bit of nerves, but I’m lucky to grow up in an environment where I don’t have to feel repercussions for being myself and I can feel comfortable exploring and finding my truth. I wasn’t afraid because I had a lot of support around me.”
