Keke Palmer: A Scream Queen

Keke Palmer is one of those double threat celebrities; an actress and a singer but unlike some pretend hyphenates, she really is a singer having signed record deal with Atlantic Records in 2005 when she was only 12 years old. Her debut single, “All My Girlz,” is on the soundtrack to Akeelah and the Bee, a feature film in which Keke whose real name is Lauren Keyana, starred alongside Angela Bassett as an 11-year-old girl who participates in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. This little lady started her career at a young age, playing the Queen Latifah’s niece in Barbershop 2: Back in Business. Keke pursued acting and singing at the same time and eventually signed a contract with Disney Channel. She played Mary, the love interest in the 2007 Disney Channel Original Movie, Jump In!, about competitive jump roping. Keke also sang the songs “It’s My Turn Now” and “Jumpin'” was featured in the film. She released her debut album So Uncool with it’s lead single “Keep It Movin” on September 18, 2007.

Keke sure grew up:

Keke went on to star in the Nickelodeon sitcom True Jackson, VP about a young fashion designer. She also sings the theme song and was noted as one of the highest-paid teen stars on television.  Nowadays, Keke is noted as one of plethora of actresses starring in The Fappening Part 2, the series of hacked nude pictures that were released over the weekend of September 20, 2014.  In the pictures, Keke is seen clothed and naked. In one, she’s posing in a black dress, in another she’s naked sitting on the toilet checking out her cell phone. There are a couple of topless pictures where you see her naked torso and the other is such a close up of a breast, you can see the tattooed biblical verse under the breast “Don’t cast thy pearls before swine.” Oddly, in one selfie, Keke is wearing a pair of old-fashioned one piece underwear in another, relatively tame picture , she’s laughing and sticking her tongue out while wearing a tshirt and underwear. Clearly from the angle, somebody took most of these pictures. Now, since several of these are close up body shots, technically these may not be pictures of Keke. Guess someone will need to confirm that tattoo before knowing for sure.

WHAT WAS KEKE’S REACTION TO THE NUDE PICTURES?

Unlike Gabrielle Union and Jennfier Lawrence who said, “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible,” Keke didn’t make any public statements; all she did was post a selfie on Instagram and Twitter and shared a quote, “I’m a pervert, but in a romantic way.” The pictures were also released at the most inopportune time in for Keke since just three weeks prior, Keke made her Broadway debut in the play Cinderella in which she becomes the first black actress to play Cinderella in a major theatrical production. Keke’s reaction to her being cast as Cinderella was one of “shocked.”

She said that this milestone role made her realize that  “if you really try and put your best foot forward, things really can happen, so it was a kind of like a moment of what I believe was truly right.” Well, it wasn’t right for the hackers to violate Keke’s privacy and hack into her iCloud account.  Apple said it wasn’t their fault that the leaks happened, they occurred because of weak passwords. Perhaps this is an opportunity for Samsung to created a series of new ads, “Take your nude pictures with our phones. We’re unhackable.”

A tattoo match?

WHO WAS KEKE TAKING THE NUDE PICTURES FOR?

Depending when these pictures where taken, there are several guys who may have been the lucky recipient. From 2010 to 2012, Keke dated Rodney King (not the one from the LA riots) who was 4 years older than her. Keke said she had a crush on King since she first saw him when she was 15 years old and he was 19.  She didn’t start dating him until she was 21 since her mother wouldn’t let her date until that age. Then from November 2013 to 2014, Keke dated P. Diddy’s stepson and Al B Sure’s biological son, Quincy Brown. Both men were involved with Brown’s mother, model Kim Porter. Friends for awhile, the two both acted in an independent film, Brotherly Love and they became more than friends. In July 2014, rumors started swirling that Keke may be seeing rapper Meek Mill aka Robert Williams after a picture of them appeared on Instagram and after Keke had her astrology read on her BET talkshow, Just Keke, she was told that she and Mill was a perfect match. However, since Mill is violated his parole after serving 8 months in jail for multiple gun and drug charges after being convicted in August 2008, he’s serving 3 to 6 months in an Atlanta jail. To show support, Keke posted a long “Free Meek Mill” message on Instagram. Perhaps the cell phone pictures were another way to show her support.
