Zendaya serves as the cover girl for Essence Magazine’s August 2016 issue. The multi-hyphenate entertainer was interviewed for the publication and photographed for a colorful feature in Rio. Inside, Zendaya talks social activism, self-pride and how growing up in the public eye has made her see things differently.
“I’m a teenager and I have fun, but 90 percent of my life is spent around adults,” she admits. “I often feel like a 60-year-old woman in this body.”
The latest issue of the publication is on stands now.
Check out a few photos from Zendaya’s editorial, her cover and behind-the-scenes video below.
