Inside the issue, the 18-year-old actress chatted about dating outside her culture and Virgin Mary. Check it:
On being accepted by her boyfriend’s family: “My boyfriend now is Guatemalan and Black, and he was raised by his mother who is Guatemalan, so heâ€™s the only Black person. Itâ€™s culturally different, but I realized I can still find a way to understand [them]. Even though everyone is speaking Spanish around me and I donâ€™t understand it, his mother is so kind and open that thereâ€™s not a problem. I donâ€™t feel like Iâ€™m an outsider.”
On A Virgin Mary: “We havenâ€™t started to film it yet, but Iâ€™m very excited because this is something new for me. People have always known me, as I said, as Keke Palmer the ‘good girl.’ In this movie, Iâ€™m not necessarily being a huge slut, but my character is just that. Sheâ€™s like, â€˜Iâ€™m a sex enthusiast. Thatâ€™s who I am,â€™ but the reason why I chose this film was because itâ€™s different from what everybody knows me as. And this character spoke to me because she was funny, she was likeableâ€¦ Even if I didnâ€™t play the character, you would immediately love her because sheâ€™s just lovable.”
