Skai Jackson Dishes On Disney Stardom, Zayn Malik And Being A Meme

I remember my friends texting me and sending me my favorite meme accounts that posted me and I was like, “Oh, my gosh, that’s really cool!” I think it’s really fun to be a meme! Some people don’t even recognize me from “Jessie” or “Bunk’d.” Some people just recognize me from the meme. I think it’s awesome ― I enjoy it, and I have a great sense of humor.

Being in the spotlight, you’ve probably experienced your share of haters and internet trolls. What advice do you have for anyone who may be facing cyberbullying?

It’s going to be OK and [it’s going to] get better. I joined social media at only 9 years old and it was difficult for me at first, because I didn’t know to not respond to all the hate. No one’s going to like everything that you do. People don’t like everything I do. But there’s a block button for a reason. So definitely use that. 

You defended Zayn when Azealia Banks was criticizing him on Twitter. Did Zayn ever get in touch to thank you for speaking up?

He’s acknowledged me several times on social media. I love him. I’ve always been a fan of his music. That’s also why I wanted to speak up for him. We’re all artists, we all do what we love, and it’s not cool to hate on each other, especially someone in your own field.

What are some upcoming projects your fans can look forward to?

Right now I’m working on a voiceover show. I will let everyone know on social media when I’m allowed to say more about it. It’s going to be really fun, I think people will love it.
