Keke Palmer is all grown up and she doesn’t owe you any explanation.
“I’m making the rules for myself, and I don’t have to be stuck down to one label,” the Scream Queens star, 22, says of her sexuality in a new interview with People.
It’s a topic she’s broached before. The former Nickelodeon star’s sexuality first came into question when she released the video for “I Don’t Belong to You” in October. In it, she leaves her boyfriend and ends up with a woman, who just so happens to be played by Cassie.
“I think the point of the whole video was to let people know that that my sexuality is up to me,” Palmer told Cosmopolitan in November. “That’s really the point — it’s female autonomy and her being who she wants to be in the world; there’s no labels attached, she’s just doing her! She doesn’t have to explain it to anybody because at the end of the day, it’s her that decides what she wants to do, and who!”
Now that Scream Queens is over, Palmer is focusing on her music and preparing to play the role of Marty Maraschino in Fox’s Grease: Live.
“I don’t feel the need to define nothing to nobody, because I’m always changing. Why say that I’m this or that when I might not be tomorrow?” Palmer tells People.
