The two have remained friends IRL since, but they have taken different directions with their careers, public image and lifestyle in general.
So comparing them, especially in a nasty way, isn't really fair, and Bella pointed this out by 'liking' a tweet.
Somebody posted a side by side image of Zendaya, from a super glammed up photoshoot, next to a candid shot from Bella's snapchat, captioning it, "kind of amazing how people can start somewhere together but end up in two drastically different places."
The tweet that Bella liked was a retweet of the image, with a girl writing, "ok so u get a perfect picture of @Zendaya and an off guard screenshot of @bellathorne .. bc that's fair right?? lol."
Firstly, comparing a photoshoot to SNAPCHAT is so unfair, because everyone knows that Snapchat is super casual.
Also, it's ridiculous to be pitting these two girls against each other anyway. Unfortunately, it came between the girls while they were on Disney. Bella spoke to J-14 about the struggles they dealt with while on the show...
"Zendaya and I were put in a very unfortunate position where we were kind of forced to compete against each other [during Shake It Up], which made the whole first season of the show just very awkward for us," Bella told said back in 2015.
"We wanted to love each other, but yet we were constantly being put against each other. It was, 'Who's better at this?' and 'Who's better at that?' And then second season, we kind of just had this tell-all talk where we started crying and really just put everything out there on the table, and that's when we became best friends."
Both Bella and Zendaya are super successful in their own ways, so let's just celebrate that shall we?
