Tom Holland and Zendaya are electric on-screen, but the Spider-man actor apparently has his eyes set on someone else. The good news about Tom Holland dating someone who isn’t Zendaya is that now, Zendaya can be the Internet’s new girlfriend. Don’t believe me? Let me convince you.

She doesn’t act like she’s better than anyone
Her true talent is having a personality that shines. Who else can make biting ice cream look this cool?
An important thing about being a celebrity nowadays is to be approachable. People fall in love with a person, and that includes the vulnerable parts that don’t really show up on the covers of magazines.
She’s a fashion legend
Whether Zendaya’s stepping out on the red carpet or she’s just getting her favorite burrito, she’s sure to serve looks better than the hot barista at your neighborhood’s Starbucks. ICYMI, she’s a Met Gala legend at 22.
My wig: snatched.
She’s a creative force to be reckoned with
She’s known to do killer dance routines without breaking a sweat, but Zendaya can also sing, act, produce, and design clothes.
In fact, during her stint with Disney Channel as K.C. Undercover, she was not only the lead role but also came on as producer. She made major changes to K.C.’s character in a good way, to show that there are other things that a girl can be. And what were we doing at 16?
She isn’t afraid to speak up about social issues
Zendaya has proven time and time again that she’s out to change the world. With her numerous participation to charitable causes, she’s also outspoken about hard-hitting issues like police brutality, harsh labor conditions, and gentrification.
She doesn’t try to be anyone but herself
In a world where fame can corrupt, Zendaya found that the best person she can be is herself.
Coming from a long line of teen stars from Disney Channel, she thought that she had to fit a certain mold. Eventually, she figured that people like her most when she’s Zendaya. Her authenticity is definitely something you can’t manufacture.
She’s constantly bettering herself
In a world full of adults who are practically big babies, Zendaya rises above all that and more. In her early years, she had an incredibly nasty feud with Bella Thorne during their stint together on Shake It Up. Eventually, she made amends and is now close friends with Bella after realizing that Disney had been pitting them against each other.
She’s not afraid to admit her mistakes and flaws, and always makes it a point to do better.
She knows how to use her platform
Is there anything Zendaya can’t do? Aside from singing, acting, designing, modeling, and being downright awesome, she’s also proven to the world that she’s cut out for acting. She recently starred in HBO’s Euphoria, a teen drama that dealt with mental illness and drugs (which is a better depiction of mental health issues than 13 Reasons Why, btw).
Her opinions don’t just stay as tweets that ride on woke clout, she actually does the work to make an impact. She’s married her passion for designing clothes and making statements through her unisex fashion line, Daya by Zendaya.
She’s the inspiration that we need
She completely changed the game when she came to the Oscars in 2015 in dreadlocks. Despite it being seen as a celebration of her heritage, Guiliana Rancic of E’s Fashion Police made an off-hand racist comment about Zendaya’s look, saying that “she looks like she smells like patchouli oil.”

The day after, she posted a statement on Instagram and got ahead of the narrative. She took control of the issue, and gave Rancic the chance to learn from her mistake by educating her about it. This is notable because of the usual discourse around cancel culture, and Zendaya is a shining example of how we can become more productive with our platform in forwarding issues.

She’s the modern-day icon that we should all look up to. When in doubt, ask WWZD (What Would Zendaya Do)?
