Keke Palmer Gets "CrazySexyCool" On The Cover Of Rolling Out Magazine!!!

She did that! Keke Palmer looks absolutely amazing on the cover of Rolling Out Magazine! She really has grown up! In the magazine Keke Palmer talks about her singing career, anxiety about the TLC biopic, and getting people to respect the grown up Keke.

On people still seeing her as Akeelah from the 2006 movie Akeelah and the Bee:

 “Sometimes it can be frustrating to be remembered at an age that you’ve outgrown. But at the same time, it’s never frustrated me to the point where I wanted to lash out. I just take it one step at a time. I’ve been patient in letting other people adapt to me and my growth.”

On getting people to respect her:

“I just [try to] constantly be a professional by asking for what I need in the right way. I feel like you have to tell people who you are, but you don’t have to be disrespectful about it. But you also don’t have to be a shrinking violet. For a long time, when I was younger, I would always act like a little kid and I would just [bow] down because I would never want to feel like I’m being disrespectful to someone. But at the same time, I was like ‘I’m 18 years old and I’m not a kid anymore.’ I don’t have to wait for people to do things for me. I started saying ‘No, that’s not OK. This is what I want. This is what I need from you. Please and thank you.’ At the end of the day, you’re going to have to speak up for yourself — and I learned that after always being, for lack of a better word, crapped on.
On playing Chilli:

“It was a dream come true. I never would’ve imagined that I would be doing something like that. Being a kid growing up and loving TLC and then doing the movie and playing my favorite member? It was overwhelming.”

On the pressure of doing the TLC biopic:

“Afterward, when I saw other people’s reactions to it, there was a little bit of added pressure. Typically when I approach a project, I always have pressure on myself because I want to surpass my last project. But realizing even much more so how big of a deal this was going to be for fans, I realized ‘omg, I really have to nail this!’ ”

On her singing career:
“Acting takes up a lot of time. Sometimes I can’t get to the studio when I want to be in the studio. But I’m working on my album with Bangladesh and we’re hoping to get a single out by the end of October and have a video as well.”

On her personal life:

“Sometimes my personal life does take a backseat. My job never takes a backseat. Sometimes I feel like my life is in shambles and I’ll still be doing my job. It’s unintentional. It’s not like I say ‘I’m not going to do certain things.’ But if that’s what it takes, that’s what it takes. I can’t give up on my dreams. I can’t do that.
On her passion for acting:
“I can’t even tell anyone how it feels when I’m acting. I don’t mean to say that I don’t have to try. But there’s something in my heart that explodes and I feel like I understand. When I’m acting, I feel like so in control and so centered. This is something that I solely get from acting and music. It’s like love itself. It’s an expression of my heart and that’s how I feel when I do it. I know that God put me on earth to do that.”
