Zendaya hates being compared to Cyrus, parties with Ludacris and her relationship w Val


Zendaya Coleman let her natural beauty shine through while clad in sweatpants for Ludacris' party at the Revolve Malibu Beach House on Sunday.
The Dancing with the Stars finalist - who turns 18 next month - also wore a casual black blazer and teal Nike trainers.
The make-up free Replay singer styled her hair in natural waves and rocked massive hoop earrings for the beach bash.
Now that Alexandra Shipp (Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel) has replaced her in Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic, Zendaya can focus on promoting Madonna's Material Girl brand.
Coleman will next perform at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington on Friday.
Meanwhile, the three-time Grammy winner - who turns 37 next month - celebrated his daughter Karma's 13th birthday.

Karma's two-tier cake from the Sugar Fairy Bake Shop was adorned with lavender ballet slippers and ballerinas.
Two days ago, Ludacris - born Christopher Bridges - treated his tween to a trip to Universal Studios Hollywood alongside his African girlfriend Eudoxiee Agnan.
Despite dating for six years, the Atlanta rapper managed to father an eight-month-old daughter Cai with a woman called Tamika Fuller, who sued him for child support in February.

Ludacris, Kesha, and Brad Paisley serve as celebrity experts on the singing competition Rising Star, which airs Sunday nights on ABC.
The Yeah! hitmaker will next perform alongside Iggy Azalea at Vanderbilt University's Commodore Quake in Nashville on October 9.
Also at the party was Single Ladies actress and former Destiny's Child member LeToya Luckett wearing a hipster hat and bizarre boot sandals.



Zendaya says she’s “not like other Disney stars,” but has a lot of respect for Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.

In an exclusive interview with Gossip Cop, the “Shake It Up” star opens up about the misconceptions people have about Disney Channel personalities.

“A lot of people expect things from Disney Channel stars, being that they’re from a younger fan base,” admits Zendaya, who believes that some stars are held to a different standard simply because of the time period they’re growing up in.

She explains, “[The issue] is adults being like, ‘Oh, I don’t like that!’ when they were doing that stuff [and] it just wasn’t televised or it just wasn’t displayed for the whole world. They just got to do it in their own personal life.”

Still, Zendaya says she’s “not like the other Disney stars,” and shouldn’t be compared to them.

“Things that they’re doing are not what I’m gonna do because I’m not them. We’re completely different people,” shares the 17-year-old. “You can’t really [say] ‘Oh because they did it, now [this one will].’ That doesn’t make any sense. ”

Zendaya stresses, “I don’t want to ever bring anyone else down for any decisions they made when they grew up, because everyone’s growing process is different, everyone learns differently.”

“We’re all human beings. We’re all growing up. We’re all different. We’re all going to have different lives,” says the Zapped star.

She’s also quick to commend her famous predecessors, noting, “I think I learned a lot of positive things. I learned how you deal with problems, and how to handle yourself.”

“I admire some of them because they have had so much success at a young age, and they continue to handle themselves and persevere through any kind of problem that they have, which I think is most important,” she continues.

As Gossip Cop reported, Zendaya recently left Lifetime’s Aalyiah biopic, and she tells us she isn’t sure if there’s another famous figure she’d want to portray.

“I think the beauty about being an actress is that you can transform into anyone. You can be someone that may not look like you or may not be exactly who you are,” she says. “Whether it be a character or a real-life person, I just want to act.”

She also wants to dance.

Season 16′s “Dancing with the Stars” runner-up has remained incredibly close with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, and joined him to perform in the recent one-day-only show, Sway: A Dance Trilogy.

“I wanted to start back dancing again and get back into the groove, since I haven’t been doing it for like a year. It’s been really fun,” Zendaya says of joining the production.

Of course, spending time with Chmerkovskiy is a bonus.

“He literally takes care of me like a little sister,” she says, pooh-poohing any suggestions of romantic chemistry when they hit the stage, or concerns about their age gap.

She notes, “For us, we make our [dances] more about fun and hip-hop and all that stuff. We’re not doing anything slow — rumbas, passionate tangos or anything.”

And she has fond memories of her “Dancing” experience, even though she and Chmerkovskiy came in second.

“At the end of the day, it wasn’t about getting a trophy,” says Zendaya. “It was about learning something and really doing well and succeeding that way — doing things I never thought I could do, really.”

But don’t expect to see the pair team up again on “Dancing with the Stars.”

While Chmerkovskiy told Gossip Cop he’d only want to partner with Zendaya if there’s another All-Star edition, in which past competitors come back for a second chance at winning the Mirror Ball, she is emphatically against it.

“I would never put myself through that again,” she reveals. “I don’t know how [the pros] do it twice a year. They are absolutely insane.”

Zendaya recalls, “It’s a very stressful process, and I don’t think people really understand that. Especially for me during that time, I [was] going to school and living life at 16. It was not easy.”

“I learned a lot but it was definitely a one-time thing,” she tells us.

Zendaya, who also released her debut solo album last year, will next turn her attention to her new Disney show, “K.C. Undercover,” slated to premiere in 2015.


Brothers Val and Maksim Chmerkovskiy pose for some backstage pics with Sharna Burgess and Karina Smirnoff after performing at Ballroom with a Twist at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, New York on Monday night (August 3).

The four Dancing With The Stars pros took to the dance floor for a different kind of ballroom than what you see on the reality competition show.

In a recent interview with Zendaya, she opened up about her strong relationship with her former partner, Val.

“He literally takes care of me like a little sister,” she shared before teaming back up with him for a one-night only performance for Sway.

Zendaya added, “I wanted to start back dancing again and get back into the groove, since I haven’t been doing it for like a year. It’s been really fun. For us, we make our [dances] more about fun and hip-hop and all that stuff. We’re not doing anything slow — rumbas, passionate tangos or anything.”
