“A great example of colorism is to believe I can be compared to anyone. I’m the youngest talk show host ever,” she tweeted. “The first Black woman to star in her own show on Nickelodeon, & the youngest & first Black Cinderella on broadway. I’m an incomparable talent. Baby, THIS, is Keke Palmer.”

“I have over 100+ credits, and currently starring in an original screenplay that’s the number one film at the box office #NOPE,” she wrote. “I’ve had a blessed career thus far, I couldn’t ask for more but God continues to surprise me.”

Zendaya, who starred in last year’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” film, became the youngest actress to win an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series in 2020 for her role in the TV series “Euphoria.”
