Zendaya Doesn’t Like Comparisons to Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez or Demi Lovato

Zendaya might have a lot of respect for her fellow Disney stars like Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, but that doesn’t mean she wants to be compared to them!

The ‘Shake It Up’ actress says she’s “not like the other Disney Stars,” so there’s no reason to even make the comparisons.

“Things that they’re doing are not what I’m gonna do because I’m not them,” she told Gossip Cop. “We’re completely different people. You can’t really [say], ‘Oh, because they did it, now [this one will].’ That doesn’t make any sense.”

Don’t think that she’s shading the others, though! She’s just trying to stress her individuality. “I don’t want to ever bring anyone else down for any decisions they made when they grew up,” Zendaya said, “because everyone’s growing process is different, everyone learns differently.”

She continued, “We’re all human beings. We’re all growing up. We’re all different. We’re all going to have different lives.”

She also stressed that there are high expectations for Disney stars — and they can be pretty unfair.

“A lot of people expect things from Disney Channel stars, being that they’re from a younger fan base,” she explained. “[The issue] is adults being like, ‘Oh, I don’t like that!’ when they were doing that stuff [and] it just wasn’t televised or it just wasn’t displayed for the whole world. They just got to do it in their own personal life.”
