Keke Palmer looks fierce in a photo from her spread in Galore‘s latest issues, available now.
The 23-year-old Scream Queens star opened up about growing up in the entertainment industry, advice she’d give to younger girls and how she feels about Miley Cyrus twerking. Check it:
On what advice she’d give younger girls: “I just feel like it’s so much easier to allow life to change you instead of you trying to fit yourself into your ideas of life. Life is a surprising thing to experience and it’s beautiful because it’s filled with mystery and magic…real magic that I’ve seen with my own eyes! I guess my biggest tip would be not to label yourself. When you label yourself unconsciously, because that’s what society does, you don’t realize how much you’re limiting yourself.”
On what she missed because she grew up in the entertainment industry: “I never had a real high school experience. My only idea of it is from watching TV shows, but I think I would’ve liked to have experienced that. I still had those types of dynamics, but maybe I wasn’t in the backdrop of a school, I was in the backdrop of a set.”
On whether she feels the responsibility to speak out on important issues: “I don’t feel pressure to speak up on issues of my culture but I do hate the emphasis my generation (me included) puts on social media in terms of creating changes within our world. To me, the importance has got to start being less about how many posts we’ve put up on the issues and more about what we are doing in the REAL world to create future change.”
On how she feels about Miley Cyrus twerking: “Miley Cyrus has always been that, I’ve known her since she was a kid. That’s always what she’s been into. If she loves hip hop music and she loves hip hop culture, that’s what she loves. My sister is a black girl and she loves alternative music and people think she’s weird [laughing].”
