Zendaya, Timbaland and Diane Warren linked up to chop it up with a few kiddies for #CampGoogle’s educational series. Meanwhile, Michael B. Jordan and his Fantastic Four cast mates did a Q&A interview in NYC. More inside….
Continuing on the promo trail, sexy Hollywood star Michael B. Jordan was joined by his Fantastic Four co-stars Kate Mara, Miles Teller and Jamie Bell for a Q&A style interview at the Apple Store in downtown Manhattan yesterday.
Fans got a chance to ask any burning questions they had about the upcoming superhero film, which hits theaters Friday (August 7th).
It appears this interview went over well…unlike an earlier interview for a radio station where race was brought up. (FYI–Michael’s character is the brother to Kate’s character, who is white). Find out how Michael cleverly shuts down the race talk HERE.

If you haven’t heard, Zendaya is teaming up with superproducer Timbaland and songwriting legend Diane Warren for her upcoming sophomore album, the follow up to her 2013 debut self-titled album.
Yesterday, the trio got together to answer all of the burning questions a few kiddies have about making music and making beats for tracks for #CampGoogle, a free online camp for kids to learn about science with interactive livestreaming events, activities and more.
This week is Music Week on #CampGoogle, so they brought in the teen sensation and two of the music industry’s heavy hitters for an intimate studio session where they will learn the ins-and-outs of making beats and Zendaya will teach a few hot dance moves.
After the sitdown, Zendaya snapped it up with a few kiddies:
Last week, the 18-year-old Disney star, who will celebrate a birthday next month, teased fans with a 15-second snippet of one of her new tracks set to be featured on her upcoming album. Take a listen below:

The “K.C. Undercover” star recently explained to MTV News about the direction her new album will be taking. She dished,
“I would say it’s the new wave of R&B. It’s where I think it should be going, or it should be headed; it’s very old-school vibe, but it’s a new-age version.”
So what can we expect from this album that’s different from her debut? She said,
“My first album I was only 15, 16, so I was talking about stuff, but I didn’t really experience it,” she said. “Even though it’s only been a couple of years, you experience a lot — especially being a young adult, being 18, I have a little more behind what I’m saying.”
Nice. No word on when the new album is expected to drop, but after hearing those snippets, we’re here for it.
