Zendaya on her Historic Emmy Win

zendaya essenc

Zendaya is stunning on the new cover of Essence. In the interview, which took place a week after her Emmy win, she talks about accepting the award at home surrounded by her family (“I was worried that if they kept screaming for too long, I wouldn’t have any time to actually say anything —but I didn’t want to stop them, because they were having a great time. It was a very special night”), and her hopes for Black women (“For us to continue to fully realize our power and harness it to do great things, because we are incredibly powerful. We’re often convinced that we’re not and taught to shrink —but we have to believe in our collective power. I always think of that Beyoncé song, “They’ll never take my power, my power, my power.” Let’s take that energy into the new year”).

Emma Roberts’ Pandemic Pregnancy

Emma Roberts is Cosmo’s first-ever pregnant cover star. She talks about getting older (“It’s funny, because I think people to this day think I’m 19, even though I’m turning 30. I don’t know if it’s about growing up as Julia Roberts’ niece or if it’s because I’ve been doing this since I was so young that people see me as younger”), dealing with endometriosis (“I started opening up to other women, and all of a sudden, there was a new world of conversation about endometriosis, infertility, miscarriages, fear of having kids. I was so grateful to find out I was not alone in this. I hadn’t done anything ‘wrong’ after all”) and expecting during a pandemic (“Long story short: I am hungry and tired.
