It’s been a few years since Keke Palmer played True Jackson on Nickelodeon, but she recently returned to the set on the Paramount Lot.
The 22-year-old actress shared a pic of her returning to the True Jackson VP, plus a funny video on the set — which is where The Thundermans is filmed now.
“So thankful anytime I can go back to places that started my career and see it with the eyes I have now. True Jackson VP, Nick, Paramount and all the people involved will never know what they meant to ME,” Keke wrote. “I was a kid to them, but for me that was everything! To me it will forever be magic, because it was apart of my childhood.”
She added with her video, “I filmed this on the ‘Thundermans’ set(Old TJVP set) on paramount, right before someone realized I had no business there hahahahahahaha. #SnapchatChronicals.”
Monique Coleman gives off a warrior princess vibe on the red carpet as she arrives for the 2016 NAACP Image Awards presented by TV One at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Friday night (February 5) in Pasadena, Calif.
“The Image Awards are always my favorite to attend. The amount of love shown to each person that walked up to receive an award, or even just presenting just filled my heart with so much joy. It felt like a huge family reunion. I didn’t feel like people were sitting there unimpressed. I genuinely felt like everyone was so happy to see one another and see their peers succeeding. #blackexcellence,” Amber wrote on Twitter after the show and parties had wrapped up.
FYI: Monique wore a Galia Lahav dress with Rock & Republic shoes. Serayah wore a Philipp Plein dress, Nicholas Kirkwood shoes, Marcia Moran and Tara Hirschberg jewels and an Emmkou clutch. Keke wore an Atelier Swarovski cuff. Gina wore a SAFiYAA dress.

Keke Palmer happily chats on her phone outside a studio in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon (February 2).
The 22-year-old Grease Live actress showed off her new long ombre hairstyle after the live production over the weekend.
“We rehearsed for the last week with umbrellas and literally 30 minutes before we went live, we did it,” Keke dished about the rainy forecast ahead of the event. “We wanted to make sure it was safe.”
Keke added about seeing Vanessa Hudgens perform as Rizzo after her father’s passing just the day before, “To see her grace — that’s the kind of thing that ended up bringing a lot of tears to our eyes.”
We still can’t get the songs from Grease: Live out of our heads after last night’s amazing production, so thankfully Fox has uploaded almost every performance video online!
Some of the ones that we can’t stop watching include Vanessa Hudgens‘ heart-breaking rendition of “There Are Worst Things I Could Do” and Keke Palmer‘s show-stopping number “Freddy My Love,” which wasn’t featured in the movie version.
Make sure to listen to the soundtrack to hear all the great songs again. The album is climbing the charts on iTunes and it currently sits in the top five.

We’re just a day away from watching Keke Palmer nail it as Marty in Grease: Live.
In a new interview with Nylon mag, the 22-year-old actress opened up about the live production, faith and diversity. Check it:
On leaning on her family and faith during tough times: “Not having the faith to know that it was going to be OK, I might’ve crumbled. I might’ve stopped acting altogether. It was my faith that let me keep going when it got difficult for me to be able to see a brighter day.”
On relating her to newest characters: “It’s similar to Scream Queens because we’ve never seen a character like Zayday in a world like Kappa Kappa Tau. Yes, she’s a part of American black culture, but she’s not a joke. That’s what I want to bring to Grease.”
On diversity in Hollywood: “You still see remnants of that old [way of thinking], but Hollywood is making a conscious effort to try to change, and I think it’s because we have [more diverse] people in the room. I like to look at the positive sides of things, so I feel like it’s getting better than it has been before.”
