Zendaya Sweet 16 Photo Shoot
September 1, 2012
American Idol 2011 Finalist House
Zendaya's Sweet 16 is her birthday party which took place on her sixteenth birthday, on Saturday, September 1, 2012. The party started at 6 PM Pacific Time and ended at midnight (12 PM). Mobli, a social networking site that Zendaya posts on, sponsered the event. The party is also known as "La Dolce Sedici", (meaning Sweet Sixteen) because the party was Italian themed.
Zendaya held a contest, urging her fans to get a Mobli Account. The three winners were invited to her party. (Scroll down to the end of page to see the Sweet 16 contest details).
Z's party started off with the red carpet, with a white background with the words, "Zendaya" and "Mobli" printed on it. Stars and guests strolled down the red carpet, talking to interviwers such as Bop and Tiger Beat,? Popstar!, and? ClevverTV.
In lieu of gifts, Zendaya invited her guests to bring backpacks, books and school supplies that will be donated to children in need at a local neighborhood school. The response was overwhelming and Zendaya will personally deliver the supplies in the coming weeks, just in time for back-to-school. (See Charity Work.)
“La Dolce Sedici” (Sweet Sixteen) festivities took place at a private estate in the Hollywood Hills and featured a special performance by Zendaya, which included “Swag It Out,” a rendition of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend,” which Zendaya changed to “Girlfriend,” and her current hit “Fashion Is My Kryptonite,” from the Disney Channel special “Shake It Up: Made In Japan.” Zendaya was joined by the band Pop Lyfe and the Z-Swagg Dancers and Singers. Trevor Jackson (“Let It Shine”) surprised the birthday girl and serenaded her with “Happy Birthday To You,” followed by the crowd singing Stevie Wonder’s “Happy Birthday” as Zendaya blew out the candles on her custom cupcake cake. Lil Mama shared inspirational words and “America’s Best Dance Crew’s” 8 Flavahz also performed.
