Zendaya Sets Her Dating Rumor Record Straight
Zendaya graces the cover of Complex‘s Dec. 2015/Jan. 2016 issue and, unsurprisingly, presents herself as a poised, thoughtful and socially conscious young woman who has managed to navigate the choppy waters of fame with all the grace and calm of a seasoned professional.
Touching on subjects like growing up biracial, transitioning from Disney child star to young Hollywood “it” girl, and what she does on a rare day off, she addressed all the dating rumors that are apt to swirl around a 19-year-old celebrity. She’s been linked to her longtime non-industry friend, Trevor, whom she’s been buddies with since she was 12, but Zendaya brushes off the rumor, fully aware of how the dating buzz starts in the first place.
“Of course there’s dating rumors,” she says. “Any male that I’ve ever been around in my life, if they follow me on Twitter, if they look at me, if they breathe the same air as me, we’ve dated. So yeah. You’ve got to realize my schedule is kind of nuts. I don’t have time to go out and get to know somebody. If I didn’t know you from the last three or four years of my life, it’s probably too late.”
Basically, if you’re hoping to see Z linked up with another hot young Hollywood face in the near future, it’s not happening. If not for the busy schedule, it’s because she isn’t down to surround herself with industry kids. “I don’t do industry kids. That vibe is just so weird because I feel like you want something from me.”
What more can be said, other than Zendaya is sharp as a tac and won’t be making any missteps anytime soon.
