Zendaya Coleman to be honored with her own Barbie doll.
I could go on for days talking about what a beautiful and shining example Zendaya Coleman has been for young girls around the world. She’s beautiful, intelligent, talented, a humanitarian, and uses her voice to inspire other girls to be great!
We watched her soar in the face of ignorance during the Oscars, when former “Fashion Police” host Giuliana Rancic made offensive remarks about Zendaya’s faux dreadlocks.
The 19-year-old’s response was one for the history books as she told Giuliana, “My wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough. To me locs are a symbol of strength and beauty, almost like a lion’s mane.”
Barbie has also taken notice of the young star and has tapped her to host their “Rock N’ Royals” concert in Hollywood next weekend to encourage other girls to raise their voices.
They will also honor Zendaya by presenting her with a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll in her likeness.
