The rising star has vocal fans on Instagram and Twitter, and they know what they see. It looks like she's masturbating on the cover of this magazine. According to Zendaya, though, we're all imagining things.

Zendaya's fans are not buying it. They're in her Instagram captions critiquing the pose. One writes, "Damn Wonderland did you wrong...you look beautiful but the styling is so bad." Another agrees with some shade, writing, "Oh that wasn't the intention??okay so what intention did u have."

But her fans are going to support her no matter what: "Don't listen to what people say about the pose. You are perfect and an amazing person. Nothing can change that."

Another is only worried about what Mom and Dad think: "If her parents aren't complaining leave it be."

We'll be curious to see how the rest of the photographs, shot by Petra Collins, come out later this week. The good news is that Zendaya looks amazing and no matter what she's doing, it's all healthy. So why criticize?
