You Need To Know Skai Jackson

The Disney starlet kicking up a storm


At just 14 years-old, Skai Jackson is already kicking up quite a storm.  


For those of you that haven't heard of her, Skai is a Disney starlet, best known for her role as Zuri Ross in the Disney Channel sitcom 'Jessie.' 

She's currently starring in the Disney Channel series 'Bunk'd,' and has appeared in films such as 'Liberty Kid,' 'Rescue Me,' and 'The Rebound' with Catherine Zeta-Jones. 


But it's not Skai's acting that has thrust her into the spotlight. After a recent twitter spat with rapper Azealia Banks, the youngster has quickly become known as a girl unafraid to speak her mind.

In case you missed it, Azealia took to Twitter on Tuesday to slam Zayn Malik, claiming that he stole the ideas for his new music video from her work. Skai joined in on the action, informing Azealia that she needed to 'simmer down.'

Not surprisingly, Azealia hit back at the comment, saying: 'Never heard of you before. Never even seen you on TV…. You aren't a star. You aren't a topic. You're a Meme...'

'... You're just another little black girl who's going to be kicked off the Disney conveyer belt. Depressed and addicted to drugs…THATS HOW THESE STORIES ALWAYS GO!'

The fourteen year old had the perfect comeback, however: 



Aside from her twitter spat, though, it's Skai's impressive style that we believe is making her one to watch. 

If her Instagram posts are anything to go by, we bet it won't be long before she's granted the status of style icon.
