Hollywood has enough celebrity beefs, and Zendaya has been trying to make it clear that her relationship with Blake Lively and Emily Blunt is not another one of them.
The Neverland singer sat front row at the Michael Kors fashion show at New York Fashion Week on Wednesday last week, right next to fellow leading ladies and bffs Lively and Blunt. The three looked totally ready for spring in their NYFW looks, Zendaya especially in a head-to-toe red athleisure suit and vest by Kors, of course.
But at one point before the fashion show started, the singer was spotted turning towards the blonde besties giggling beside her, in what looked like a ‘I don’t have time for these two’ side-eye glare.
Watch the video and you be the judge about what was running through her mind:

Zendaya says that look was nothing and has been outspoken on social media about the alleged visual confrontation. She swears she wasn’t scowling, but simply wondering when the show would begin.
“Whoa whoa whoa y’all not bout to have me out here lookin shady😂 I was looking at the runway and asking Law when the show was gonna start. Don’t do me. They were super nice,” she tweeted once she noticed the drama attempting to unfold.
But fans continued to poke fun at the video clip and the best accidental on purpose side-eye (or not side-eye) look of the year so far.

And someone who was seated behind the group tweeted a video of Zendaya and Lively obviously getting along:

In a final attempt to stop the rumor mill, Zendaya tweeted in all caps with the shouting emoji between each word:

We’ve all been there, lost deep in thought with an unintentional but textbook RBF that accidentally gets pointed in the direction of an unassuming person or persons. This is that, according to Zendaya, and those persons getting caught in the ray of her death glare were Lively and Blunt.
Luckily, there’s social media to clear the air, even if it did cause the confusion to begin with.
