If you live under a rock, you know that the new original HBO series, Euphoria created last night. The highly anticipated show follows different teenagers who are trying to find their place while sailing through adolescence. Along the way, they struggle with troubling issues such as substance abuse, sexual assault, sexuality, and identity. The star of the series is Zendaya actress, aged 22, who plays the role of Street.
Out of his detox, Rue goes home without any desire to stay sober and meets a new girl who will change his world. The show has already received positive reviews and is presented as raw and powerful. But in case you have not seen it yet, Zendaya has a message for you. The biggest showman The actress wants you to do this important thing before releasing the series.
Although the show is well received by some, others are convinced that it is not appropriate. The people concerned were very critical of the series because they believe that Euphoria takes extreme experiences that teenagers can face and paints as everyday events. But Zendaya does not agree with this argument. She believes that it is important to shed light on the problems that adolescents face daily, while stressing that the fact that some adolescents do not meet these problems does not mean that others are not.
"I have somehow accepted the fact that it would be polarizing. I found a little calm in that. Whether it's nice or not, it's real. I tell the story of someone. It's not because it does not happen that it does not happen all the time, every day. It's hard for me to talk about addiction because it's not something I've dealt with directly. But I still had friends who took care of things and I had to help them, "said the singer in a recent interview with The New York Times.
Zendaya also admitted that she knew that the show was not suitable for everyone. Due to the nature of the series, fans can have a lot of trouble watching. The actress has shown extraordinary grace and maturity in recognizing this important fact yesterday, a few hours before the first performance of the show. Heading to her Instagram page, the 22-year-old wrote this heartfelt note.
"Just a reminder before tonight's premiere that Euphoria For an adult audience, it is a crude and honest portrait of addiction, anxiety and difficulties in everyday life. There are graphic scenes, hard to look at and that can trigger. Please watch only if you feel that you can cope with it. Do what is best for you. I will always love and feel your support "the Spiderman: far from home star wrote.
The only thing you need to watch
However, if you still feel obliged to watch the show, Zendaya wants you to watch an important video first. In a recent article posted on Instagram, the actress paid tribute to Sam, who recounted personal experiences, including painful teenage girls stuffed with addiction. Zendaya recognizes that Sam has allowed his character to exist and highlights Sam's courage and resilience.

If you watch our show, I hope you watch this show first, until the end and that you really understand where it comes from. Thank you Sam for having existed so that Street can exist.
