ZENDAYA TALKS ACTIVISM, ACCEPTANCE, LIFE AFTER DISNEY

Zendaya may only be 22, but she’s already got a decade in Hollywood under her belt. The former Disney star covers the latest issue of Vogue, and inside, she opens up about her unusual life in the spotlight, and how it influenced—and didn’t—her role in the upcoming HBO teen drama Euphoria.

In the show, which also stars Storm Reid and Maude Apatow, she portrays a recovering drug addict, worlds away from the dancer she played in Disney’s Shake It Up, and her own life.

Zendaya said: "Obviously, there's not much in my own experience of being a teen that I could draw on, especially when it comes to struggling with addiction."

She added that working on a high-profile show for HBO is a bit different too: "It's a totally different thing than being the star of K.C. Undercover. That first day on set, I was honest-to-God terrified."

Zendaya knows she has a high-profile, but seems cautious about taking too much credit for activism: "I keep thinking, Is there a way I can help with this, through art? I mean, obviously, I've got a platform...but I also know, don't just post whatever. You've got to listen to people. Talking is important. But walking the talk is important, too."

She added: "It's nice. but I'm not. What I'd really like is to reach out to my peers in the Bay Area. Like, there are kids I was in elementary school with, who are out there doing the work. Organizing. Maybe they can help me figure out what to do."

‘I WON’

Zendaya first came to widespread notice in 2015, when her long dreadlocks got dragged by E!’s Fashion Police. She slapped back at the critics at the time, writing on Instagram: "There is already harsh criticism of African-American hair in society without the help of ignorant people who choose to judge others based on the curl of their hair. My wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough."

She says now of the incident: "I mean, I’d basically snuck onto the red carpet, the plus one of a plus one. In 2018, I got invited back as a presenter. So I guess I won."

ELLEN DEGENERES MULLS END TO SHOW: Ellen DeGeneres is thinking about ending her long-running eponymous talk show, she told The Hollywood Reporter. "Yeah, of course. I think that whenever I'm tired. I think that whenever the show is a little rough to do," she told THR. "I'll know when it's the end. I'll know when I feel it. And I don't feel that right now, so we'll see how long I go. But you know, I didn't think I'd go 16 years. This is crazy. I mean, most shows don't." And when she does pull the plug, she said she’d spend more time doing stand up. "I think once I'm done with the talk show, I'm not somebody that needs to be on stage and in front of the camera all the time. I'm happy to step back when I'm done. I'll be happy to just be doing my brand and doing production," she said. "So once I'm done with the talk show, I think then you'll see me do standup once once in a while and that's it."

ALEX TREBEK SHARES DETAILS FROM CANCER BATTLE

Alex Trebek is sharing details about his ongoing cancer battle. The Jeopardy! host sat down for an interview with CBS Sunday Morning’s Jane Pauley, where he opened up about being diagnosed with stage-four pancreatic cancer. The show will air Sunday, but a preview was released on Thursday.

He says that he continued to work even as he went through treatment, which led to some seriously tough days. "This got really bad. I was on the floor writhing in pain... It went from a three to an 11. And I just couldn't believe. I didn't know what was happening," Trebek tells Pauley. "And it happened three or four times a day while we were taping. So that was a little...little rough on me."

The 78-year-old said he tried to muscle through the pain: "I had 15 minutes before the next show. So I got myself together and spasms...usually last about 10 to 15 minutes. So, all right, here we go again. 'Anybody got any pain pills?' And I don't like taking pain pills. But...I got through it. And the producers were very kind. They said, 'Look, if you -- If you don't want to do the show, we'll just cancel taping.' I said, 'No. We're here. We're doing the shows.'"

And his hair? Gone. But he hopes to grow it back. For now, he says he’s wearing a hair piece.

Trebek's interview will air at 9 a.m. EST on May 12 on CBS Sunday Morning.

MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY INTRODUCE BABY, HAIL ‘MAGIC’ FIRST DAYS

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have revealed their baby’s name. Baby Sussex’s name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the pair shared on Instagram.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their firstborn child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor," the new parents wrote.

They added: "This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion."

After Archie made his big debut Monday, a happy Harry, 34, admitted that the name thing was the tough part, now that he was here: "The baby is a little bit overdue so we've had a little bit of time to think about it. That's the next bit."

Before the name was announced, oddsmakers were saying Alexander was the top choice, followed by Arthur. Other options included Philip or Spencer.

Meghan, 37, and Harry also stepped outside of their home Wednesday to show Archie’s face, but they waited to share his name on social media.

Meghan described being a mother to Archie, saying: "It's magic. It's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world, so I'm really happy."

"He has the sweetest temperament. He's really calm," said Meghan, prompting Harry to joke beside her, "I wonder who he gets that from."

"He's just been the dream, so it's been a special couple days," added Meghan, who was last seen in an official public appearance in March.

LINDSAY LOHAN DRAGGED FOR SLAMMING ZENDAYA’S DRESS

Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan was not a fan of Zendaya’s Cinderella look at this year’s Met Gala, and she decided to share her thoughts on social media, somehow managing to drag Claire Danes into her takedown in the process.

"Claire Danes did that with Zac Posen already," she wrote, referring to Danes' outfit and the designer, in a comment to a post from @disneylifestylers that shared Zendaya’s look.

In a separate comment, she sniped, "@ClaireDanes you wore this dress so beautifully, I don’t know why someone thinks that they can be more chic. Ever."

Most commenters didn’t agree with Lohan’s assessment. "Really honey is this what we doing? It’s fine to have an opinion but your comment was unnecessary. Have some decency and show some kindness," one person wrote. "Zendaya, It was a beautiful dress and you killed it! Much Love!"

"I thought you were about girl power! You sound very bitter and mean. Get your act together! There was no reason for your comment," another user said.

"@lindsaylohan show us the dress you wore to the #metgala go ahead, I’ll wait," another comment read, adding, "Go sit down somewhere."

Lohan has not attended the gala since 2007.

TYRA BANKS MAKES MODELING RETURN IN BIKINI ON ‘SI’ COVER

Media mogul Tyra Banks is making a sizzling return to modeling at age 45 on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. More than 20 years after she became the first black woman to grace the annual cover, she is back and in a bikini!

This is Banks’ third SI Swimsuit cover, and she is wearing a tiny yellow Andi Bagus bikini in Great Exuma, Bahamas. In another shot inside, she recreated one of her most famous looks in a red polka dot bikini. The Swimsuit issue has multiple covers. Soccer star Alex Morgan and model search winner Camille Kostek landed the other two covers this year.

Banks appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday and joked about her return, saying: "I'm like, 'Damn, I'm 45, dog!'"

WHY SHE LEFT:

In an interview with The New York Times, Banks also revealed why she left modeling a decade ago.

"When I was 32 years old, I retired from the business. I didn’t want to age out," she recalls. "I walked out with a three-year contract on the table, but I wanted to say goodbye before the industry said goodbye to me. Leave before they leave you. My mother used to tell me that."

WILLIAM AND KATE GUSH OVER MEGHAN AND HARRY’S BABY AS THE PAIR TALK MORE KIDS

Prince William and Kate Middleton are high on baby love! The pair told reporters that they can’t wait to meet the new royal that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed on Monday.

The pair seemed so genuinely delighted, observers are saying it is more evidence that the rumored "feud" between the "Fab 4" is a media fantasy.

William said: "Obviously thrilled. Absolutely thrilled. Looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down. I'm very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting. So that will be fun too."

The Duchess, noting the closeness in age between their children’s birthdays, (Princess Charlotte on May 2, Prince Louis on April 23), said she was delighted.

"It’s such a great time of the year to have a baby. And yes, spring’s in the air and everything so it’s pretty great," she said. "As William said, I look forward to meeting him (the baby) and finding out what his name is going to be. So it’s really exciting for both of them. And I’m wishing them the best in these next few weeks. It’s always a bit daunting the first time around."

According to People, Harry and Meghan are already discussing having "one more" child. There are also reports that Meghan opted to give birth in a London hospital, despite rumors of a home birth.

As far as an image of the royal tot, Vanity Fair reports that Meghan and Harry are set to have one photographer, one reporter and one TV camera at their Frogmore Cottage home Wednesday.
