“Euphoria” star Zendaya covers Allure‘s December issue photographed by Miguel Reveriego.
On still making music: “I still love making music, and I still get to do it through acting a lot of times, and being able to work on the finale song for Euphoria was fun. There’s a layer of personal life that I think actors get that music artists don’t. They have no character to hide behind, so they have to be very open. [As actors] we get a little bit of a separation.”
On whether there is anything her fans would be surprised to know about her: “I think my fans pretty much understand me. They know I don’t leave my house, they know that I’m lazy, they know that I’m pretty open but also pretty private. I think we have, in a weird way, a pretty close relationship. My fans get me for sure.”
On dealing with injustice as a young person: “There’s literally injustice happening every second. It’s intense and it’s overwhelming, and I think a lot of young people are feeling that, but what do we do about it? All I can say is try to find a balance between doing the work and still not letting it destroy you as a person and destroy your hope and faith in humanity. It’s allowing yourself to be angry enough to want to be motivated to do something, but not to where it breaks you down.”
