Keke Palmer Reminisces About the First Time She Encountered Kanye West

“Since he’s on my shirt, I might as well *insert a dramatic Kanye story* hahaha,” she writes, “Seriously though I will never forget the first time I met Kanye. It was the night I first presented at the NAACP Awards, I was about 12 I think. The TelePrompTer went down when I was doing my part and I started making jokes on stage while I waited for it to reboot cause I got nervous!”

Wow! That’s seriously impressive, but also not surprising at all coming from Keke.

“After the show when everyone was leaving, Kanye called out to me and said ‘Girl you funny! I like what you did up there,’” she continues, “it made my whole night, like whaaat Chicago’s #1 thinks I’m funny.”

In other words, first time she met her idol, he not only noticed her, but he was impressed by her!

“He probably doesn’t even remember this story, but the gag is, I always will!” she ends her recap. We will too — it’s an amazing story.
