Tinashe Admits That She Has “No Plan B”

Tinashe Complex Magazine 2Singer Tinashe is the February/March cover star of Complex Magazine. The 22 year old gave a personal and raw interview from the home that she shares with her parents and two siblings. During many pervious interviews, Tinashe has been asked why she still lives at home.

“One thing people don’t realize is that Tinashe has allowed us to stay here, financially,” her mother admits. “It’s not just about her having home-cooked meals and all that. She’s not a selfish person and she realized that if she’s here [at home], she helps us to be able to stay.”

Besides, the “Player” singer doesn’t have any free time to focus on moving out. She admits to not liking downtime because then she has, “too much time to think.” She, “knows there are misconceptions about her… She knows some think that she has nothing to offer, that she’s just a cute girl whose music has no sophistication or artistry. A one-hit wonder.”

But nothing is going to stop her from making music. She admits to having absolutely no backup plan. “I have no Plan B,” she tells the publication. “I’ve set this up so that my entire life is based on this, and if this fails I have nothing else. No career options. No life options. I’ve sacrificed so much for this… There can only be setbacks. It’ll eventually work because it can’t not work.”

Zendaya Tells Complex Magazine A Lot Of Disney Stars Were “Forced Into Being Role Models”

Zendaya Complex Interview-7Zendaya is Complex Magazine’s December/January cover girl, and was not shy when talking about what she thinks of the former Disney Channel stars.

The actress says she’s less of a role model and more of a “real model.” Taking the idea from Tupac, Zendaya says, “I’m not pretending to be something that I’m not, because like he said, people are going to be disappointed when they find out who you are, because it’s not going to be what you presented to the world.”

Though Zendaya doesn’t see herself heading down the same path as Miley Cyrus or Demi Lovato, she sheds some light on what she thinks about the struggle of Disney stars to transition into adulthood. “A lot of them were forced into being role models and they had to pretend to be something that they didn’t feel matched up with who they were,” she says.

She does explain that she feels Disney stars eventually figure it out. “Again, I think with all the prior Disney stars, at least you can say they are themselves now.”

The interview was released earlier today, and in it Zendaya talks about a variety of other topics. You can see more photos from the issue and a behind-the-scenes video below.

Do you think that society puts too much pressure on child stars to be good role models?
