Bella Thorne Reveals All On Her Friendship With Zendaya Coleman
When speaking to Us Weekly, she opened up on how their friendship was not always that close: “We had to deal with that so much on Shake It Up. It’s like we said [in] a couple interviews when we were younger, how we explained how in the first season we weren’t friends, and it took us those other two seasons of becoming so close.
“[It was hard] not having someone pitted against you [before] and then all of a sudden, now everyone is pitting you against each other. That fed into our heads. It made us not [be] friends in that first season.” But this all changed after the two had a heart to heart. She continued: “We were really able to put our cards out on the table and understanding each other.”
Since that moment, however, nothing has held the two back. Bella said: “Zendaya’s amazing. If—king love her. She’s always been amazing, and she’s always going to be amazing. I’m just happy that people see that. She’s getting the recognition she deserves. That just makes me so happy. I feel like when people put us against each other, it’s just like, … ‘Why are you doing this? Is it just because we’re women?”
So why were they ever so distant? Well, it is important to note that the duo starred on Shake It Up and the dynamics of the show may have created that tension: “We wanted to love each other, but yet we were constantly being put against each other. It was, ‘Who’s better at this?’ and ‘Who’s better at that?” And as for Bella’s current life, she is focusing on her music, and by all accounts, she is doing great with a new single on the way.
The track is not one to miss: “I feel like when you listen to the song, you just relax a little. It puts a smile on your face. You start to feel a little fabulous, a little batty. You’re like, ‘Wait a minute, hold on. I’m feeling this,’ you know? I feel like we just need it right now. I need it right now.”
