Zendaya: “Growing up, I wasn’t very confident with my curls”

January 24, 2016 in Beauty & Body Image, Celebrity Quotes by Versus29 Comments »


On not being confident because of her hair:

Growing up, I wasn’t very confident with my curls. I didn’t like my hair because it wasn’t like the hair that girls around me had. And nobody really knew what to do with my hair. My mom is white and my dad is black – they have very different hair types. So we learned how to manage my hair together and I also watched YouTube videos to find easy styles to do.

On her style:

When I am on the red carpet, I am not afraid to have fun with my look. A lot of the styles I wear are inspired by Cher, Joan Jett, Grace Jones and Diana Ross. When people see me, I want them to understand the character that I am that night. I want them to have a moment.

On experimenting and becoming confident:

When I was younger, I was afraid to experiment with my look because I was worried about what people thought. But as I’ve gotten older and become more confident in myself, I just don’t care. I like who I am and I hope that I can help a lot of otter young women get there. I think that a big part of that is showing that you can dress and wear your hair however you want.

… says 19 year-old Zendaya.

On being happy with what you have:

“I learned a long time ago when I was little, being multi ethnic and moving around a lot, I was always the new girl and never felt pretty enough. I wasn’t the ugly duckling either. I had this epiphany in eighth grade, there’s always going to be someone smarter, prettier, richer, taller, thinner, so you might as well just try to make the best of what you have.”

Tess Holliday: “When I’m having a bad day, I usually take naked photos and post them online”

January 21, 2016 in Tess Holliday by Versus42 Comments »


On how she deals with her critics:

‘When I’m having a bad day, that’s when I usually take naked photos and post them online, which hasn’t happened often because my mom moved in with us and she doesn’t really appreciate that, that much. I don’t know why. Before I would have just gone after somebody if they said something and attacked me. I’m not going to change their minds by one comment so why even bother? Why waste my energy? It’s definitely been a learning curve. My fiance’s had to snatch the phone out of my hand multiple times. He’s like, “What are you doing?” He knows. I get this look on my face and he’s, like, “Are you commenting back to people?”‘

On being bullied:

‘I was bullied from fifth grade on. They started making fun of me because my mom was in a wheelchair, then they started making fun of me because I was poor and then it evolved to my size.’

On the fact that some people say she is unhealthy:

‘It was so frustrating because I felt like I had worked so hard to get to this point and then people were taking away what I did and making it about my health and my size. And they still do. I feel like it’s important to talk about my health, which is fine, and my size because there are young girls who see someone like me and can validate their own existence.’

… says Tess.
