Is there anything Zendaya can't do? She acts, she sings and she dances. Now, she's going to be a Barbie doll. No, seriously. The official Barbie Twitter page announced the "K.C. Undercover" star will be a one-of-a-kind doll.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Barbie is modeling Zendaya's doll after her stylish Vivienne Westwood look at the 2015 Oscars. EW also reported Zendaya saying in a press release, "I’m excited to be a part of the new direction the Barbie brand is headed, specifically how they are celebrating diversity in the line and encouraging kids to raise their voices"
Zendaya is truly an inspiration to us all. From celebrating her 19th birthday by raising money for a South African family via UNAIDS and iKAGENG, to calling out a makeup-shamer, Zendaya reminds us that everyone deserves love and respect. Fans took to Twitter to express their elation for the Zendaya Barbie doll.
The superstar will host the Rock n' Royals Concert Experience on Saturday, Sept. 26, where her doll will be on display.
"When I was little, I didn't have one that looked like me, so I couldn't connect with her in that way...But getting to visit the Mattel offices and see Barbie’s vision for the future...it was really cool. I was able to see how they plan to diversify, broadening the horizons and the image of Barbie, and make it more, you know, open. I left the office feeling it was definitely something I wanted to be a part of," Zendaya told Yahoo Celebrity.
We can't wait to see what all magic Barbie has in store!
