Re-visiting the past can be a hard and painful process. Or it can be hilarious. Zendaya decided to take the hilarious route as she revisited some of first YouTube videos from her Disney days. She posted a new video to her app where she tore her younger self to pieces as she watched some of her own earliest attempts to build a brand.
“I genuinely felt that I had to make a persona that matched Rocky,” Zendaya says. “I was trying to make like this positive environment and trying to be this fucking ray of sunshine.” As a video of her from years ago reminded viewers that her YouTube channel was a place for “happy, smiley faces,” Zendaya notes the video was “the most annoying shit I have ever seen in my entire life.”
Watch Zendaya tear into herself here. Check out one of her last old YouTube videos still up on online below.
