From Euphoria to Malcolm & Marie, there is nothing that dynamic and prolific actress, Zendaya can't do.

Now, she also made the cover of Vanity Fair's 27th Annual Hollywood Issue alongside comedienne Maya Rudolph, Michael B. Jordan, Judas and The Black Messiah actor Lakeith Stanfield, and other Hollywood stars.


I can't get over how colorful the photoshoot looks.

Additionally, Vanity Fair released an interview with Zendaya and other stars from the cover that featured a Proust Questionnaire.

If you are unfamiliar with a Proust Questionnaire, it stems from a parlor game that became popular with French essayist Marcel Proust, who believed the answers people give to these questions would reveal their true nature.

These questions would give a little insight into who Zendaya is, which is great for fans to connect with her better. However, the interview is garnering attention for a fundamental reason.

While watching in the very beginning, the interview was flowing seamlessly with questions such as "What is your greatest extravagance" and "Which living person do you admire the most?"

Despite feeling like a dark cloud is following you, there is always hope that change for the better can happen, even if you need some support.

But when Zendaya was asked a heteronormative question, she took a second to correct the question before responding. Between the 3:09 to 3:10 mark, Zendaya was asked this question: "What is the quality you most like in a man?

"Um—I most like in a person, how about that?" she says. "Oh, it's such a big question. What is the quality I like most in someone? I would say kindness is kinda not the best way to describe it, but some people are just good people and you can just feel it.I don't know what that is, but some people have it, and it's special."

Seeing Zendaya make that correction was amazing because of the advocacy and strides many people take for gender inclusivity and overall rights as human beings.

What are your thoughts about Zendaya correcting the heteronormative question?

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.

The one work productivity method that actually works wonders for me—and it involves a timer

How to make the most of your time while working from home.

If you're anything like me, you might have felt that working from home has its ebbs and flows.

For one, you can work from the comfort of your own home or now, since restrictions are somewhat lifted in the United States ( I'm in New York City), you could go to a coffee shop if you want to change your scenery.

On the other hand, working from home can have its pitfalls because it can be easy to be distracted by your phone, television, or outside noises.

Essentially, productivity can easily fly out of the window.

But how can it be easier to make the most out of the day while working from home?
