It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s actually a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket!

There was a rocket launch that could be seen in the sky over California on Friday night (December 22), no one knew what was going on, and everyone took to social media to talk about it. Some joked it was Santa, and many went straight to aliens and UFOs.

“Wtf is in the sky…,” Zendaya wrote until she figured out what was going on. “Cause I was almost positive it was some UFO alien sh–… What in the Stranger Things…”

“Santa probably working with @SpaceX and @elonmusk,” Keegan Allen joked.

Zendaya Returned to Disney Channel Because of the Lack of Diversity

Zendaya Returned to Disney Channel Because of the Lack of Diversity

Earlier this fall, Zendaya wrapped up production on her long running Disney Channel series, K.C. Undercover, and speaking with the NYTimes, we now know why she returned to the network.

“The only reason I wanted to come back to the Disney Channel is because there was a lack of diversity at that time,” the actress reveals in a new interview. “There weren’t any leads or families of color, and I felt like that was something that needed to happen.”

Now, with Andi Mack, Raven’s Home, and Stuck in the Middle, the diversity is there.

However, that’s not the only reason she was back in action at the channel.

“I thought the idea of a girl doing a ‘guy role’ was really important,” Zendaya adds. “Young women are able to look at the screen and see that they can be anything, that they can do it all. A little boy can look up to a girl and say, ‘I want to be like this girl.’ And that’s awesome.”

The final season of K.C. Undercover is expected to debut in 2018.

Zendaya Calls Her 'Greatest Showman' Kiss With Zac Efron 'Honestly Dangerous'

Zendaya and Zac Efron both have opened up about their kiss in their new movie, The Greatest Showman, on many occasions.

However, in a new interview, the 21-year-old actress gets really honest about the smooch you’ll see on the big screen.

“It’s not a normal kiss,” she emphasizes. “This kiss is very special not just because it’s two actors kissing…these two characters have gone through so much and this kiss symbolises a lot more than just kissing someone.”

Zendaya adds, “In the context of the movie, it’s very brave and honestly dangerous. There’s something special about it in that way.”

The Greatest Showman is out in theaters NOW.

Auditions for each project — like movies or television — are pretty straight forward.

You read for a group of casting directors, producers, and directors, vying for a part in the project that everyone else is wanting to get — however, that wasn’t the case for Zendaya and The Greatest Showman.

Speaking with the L.A. Times, she spoke about how she learned she got the part, opposite Zac Efron.

“It wasn’t a normal audition; it was more relaxed than that,” she remembers, saying that ahead of the meeting, she recorded her own version of “Rewrite The Stars“.

Zendaya shares, “I was like, ‘Would it be cool if you could send me the song so I could record it?’ I have, like, a studio set up in my garage…’ I wanted to show them what I could do. So I recorded my own version of my half of the song.”

“It was funkier, it had heavier bass and drums,” Zac chimed in about her version of the track. “Her range was shown in it. ‘This is badass.’ Michael [Gracey, director] was giving me side-eye, every time she looked away…”

After presenting her version, she still didn’t know she was cast in the movie — even after Michael invited her to “hang out” with him and Zac.

Zac asked, “You didn’t know yet?”

“I didn’t know,” Zendaya says. “That’s why I recorded the song.”

“Oh, that explains a lot,” he added. “To me, Michael was like, ‘Do you want to hang out with Zendaya and see what she’s like before you guys start shooting?’ ”

The Greatest Showman is out in theaters today.
