“I had this idea of, like, I can walk around Venice. No, I can’t,” she laughed as she recounted the incident to the news outlet. “I had to pick up his poo, and I was like, Lord, ‘please, don’t take a picture of me picking up my dog’s sh*t.’”

Zendaya stole the show at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, delivering a breathtaking performance that showcased her musical prowess and highlighted her resilience after facing “negative experiences” in the music industry. The crowd was left awestruck as the 27-year-old singer and actress graced the stage alongside British singer Labrinth, proving that her indomitable spirit and undeniable talent can conquer any adversity.
In her interview with Elle, she opened up about the “negative experiences” she encountered while trying to establish herself as a musician and how she felt performing for the first time in eight years. She noted that she felt nervous about it but had to take the bull by the horns and do it regardless.
“I have a lot of negative experiences with the music industry, and being onstage is really the worst,” she said. “It carries a lot for me, and I was afraid to open that door again. But I was also like, ‘You can’t run away from this forever.’”
Zendaya Details Her Anxiety For Her Role In ‘Challengers’
Zendaya also opened up about the challenges she faced while taking on a more mature role in the upcoming film “Challengers.” She shared her experiences dealing with anxiety as she navigated her transition into a more “grown-up” character.
In the movie, she plays budding tennis star Tashi Duncan, who is caught in a love triangle with fellow players and best friends Patrick and Art, played by Josh O’Connor and Mike Faist.
“From a character perspective, I want to find things that will push me,” she told the new outlet. “As I get older, you know, I can’t play a teenager for the rest of my life. I felt like it was a good step into a more, I guess you could say, ‘grown-up’ role and into that next phase.”
She went on, “It was a little bit scary to take on, which I think is a good feeling. To be like, ‘Ooh, can I do this?’ You could run from that feeling and stay safe and comfortable, or you can go, ‘You know what, f**k it.’”
