Zendaya Just Explained Why She Won't Be Drinking Alcohol Though She Just Turned 21

By Chad Burris

Zendaya just turned 21, but that doesn't mean she is going to start drinking. 

She wrote a birthday post on her blog: 

Today I turn 21! Holla!!! But just because I'm now the legal drinking age, doesn't mean I'm going to start throwing 'em back. I don't plan to start drinking.

She told fans why she didn't feel the need to drink:

My life is too stressful to need help with relaxing by having a cocktail. This industry is way too nuts for me to not be in control of myself and my decisions, so I just don't want to introduce drinking! Plus, I don’t want drinking to become a vice. Why try something if you don’t need it?!
