Zendaya Comes Out Top Dog On Social Media Rankings For The First Time

Zendaya is the child-star that shows no sign of stopping.

After becoming a Disney stalwart, she transcended the pop-princess aesthetic after calling out Fashion Police presenter Giuliana Rancic for saying her dreadlocks smelt ‘like weed’ on national TV.

Two years later, the star now runs her own clothing line, has released an album, bagged A-list stylist Law Roach and a role in the latest Spiderman film.

arrives at the Variety Power Of Young Hollywood at TAO Hollywood on August 8, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.


And whilst we wait for what seems like forever for Zendaya’s next flick, The Greatest Showman (which looks so bleeding good by the way), the star doesn’t exactly stay quiet. The actress repeatedly uses her social media accounts to call-out photoshopping, cyber bullying and hitting out at repulsive rape memes.

After spending three weeks at number two on the Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Top Actors Social Media Ranking’, we’ve now we’ve learnt she’s shot straight to the top spot.

The 20 year-old actress beat Priyanka Chopra, Lucy Hale, Tom Holland, Channing Tatum and more to the post.

attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

The chart is a ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, and blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers.

Depressed yet? Nope, us neither.

Zendaya apparently enjoyed a 40 percent increase on her Twitter and a 221 percent increase on her Instagram comments due to her role as MJ in Spiderman as well her part in Bruno Mars’ latest music video ‘Versace On The Floor’.

The music video sees the all-singing, all-dancing star writhing on a wall bedecked in, you guessed it, Versace.

We are totally here for Zendaya’s social media fame.

And she uses her massive following for the good as well as cute outfit posts – something we can all get behind.

Fit for a princess… @chopard @ralphandrusso
