On Instagram yesterday, Zendaya paid tribute to late singer Ronnie Spector following the singer's death at 78. Zendaya said she hopes to make her proud in playing her in a biopic. The actress, who is slated to portray the Ronettes lead singer in a film about her life, shared an image of Spector and a selfie she took in December of 2018 with the Be My Baby artist, who died of cancer Wednesday. Zendaya said the news of the death of Spector left her brokenhearted. “To speak about her as if she's not with us feels strange as she is so incredibly full of life,” Zendaya said. “There's not a time I saw her without her iconic red lips and full teased hair, a true rockstar through and through.” The actress said that knowing Spector had been one of the greatest honors of her life.
