Zendaya Says "'Ugly" Doesn't Exist Because She's Not About Body Shaming

She is forever slaying, and even though I know this about her, she never ceases to surprise me. Zendaya said “ugly” doesn’t exist in a super powerful statement about beauty and got even cooler in my book. I didn’t even know that was possible, but she’s gone and outdone herself again. And all I have to say is bravo, Zendaya, bravo!

When asked if she had any advice for “girls who think they’re ugly,” in a video captured by X17 Online, she responded, “Nobody’s ugly. That doesn’t exist. I say, take the time to get to know who you are. Take the time to love yourself, and everything will be all right.” Preach it, girl. When it comes to body positivity and loving yourself, nobody does it quite like she does. From denying the fact that anyone could ever be unattractive to admitting she learned to do her makeup from YouTube, Zendaya keeps it real. She’s not afraid to be who she is, and she takes that one step further by encouraging other girls to do the same.

Check out Zendaya being all body positive in action, plus seven times she’s kept it real on Instagram. From going au naturel to car singing, she is always her real self, which is such an admirable trait.

I couldn't agree with her more.

1. Silly Faces

She's showing her many sides.

2. No Makeup

She's not afraid to pose makeup free because why should anybody be?

3. Car Singing

Because you can't resist from singing along to Bey.

4. Dancing Queen

Show off your moves, Zendaya.

5. Feelin' Herself

I love that she can admit this. Because we've all been there.

6. Morning Selfie

Roll up out the bed, take a selfie, you know?

7. Natural Curls

She's not afraid to show her off her natural self.

Zendaya kicks butt at body positivity, and I love her for it.
