Keke Palmer SLAMS Cyber Bullies Over Alleged Sex Tape! Chimes In On Negative Bloggers
Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story star Keke Palmer slams cyber bullies, addresses the alleged oral sex video and also shared some relationship advice an ex-boyfriend taught her.
In a new interview with The Jasmine Brand, the 20 year-old actress is blasting the people who have tried to defame her image in the entertainment industry. Just so you know, we never even entertain that non-sense.
Check out the highlights from the interview below:
On what she thinks about Ciara’s comments on negative bloggers:
I didn’t see it, but I totally agree with it. I think in the world…the way that the world works, you have to have negative to appreciate the positive. But at the same time, I think that we don’t have enough of the positive. It’s such a hard balance, especially within the African American community. When we get things, we work so hard to promote them and the next thing you know, it ends up…the more popular it gets people try to put negative into it in order to keep the excitement. They feel like being positive is not cool enough, or they feel like being positive is not getting enough with the numbers. So it’s like first they start out positive, and the once they get more numbers they feel like they have to go negative in order to keep it.
On how she felt about the alleged (and fake) oral sex video of her circulating:
Can you believe that? My thing is, I always try to use myself as an example. I realized at a young age, ok I have a platform. People know me because of my work. Let me use it for a good thing. And I never want young girls to think that is ok. Every now and then there are some things you can throw over your shoulder. But that, that was too much and I’ve done too much good in my life to deserve that type of treatment. Everything that I do, I always think about the young women who are like me out there, that want to be heard, that want to be seen, that want more positivity, that want more things to feed their mind. And then to come back and see my own people try to take me down like that, it kills my heart because it’s like everything I do, I do for us.
On what she’s learned from her past relationship:
I think as a young person, we always get so caught up in our relationships and things like that and we end up forgetting that this is the time for us to learn ourselves. And what I really loved about Beyonce’s new album especially the Flawless song, she put that Maya Angelou quote in there because it really let’s young women know, men are allowed to experience life in a way that women are not allowed to. From the time when we’re kids, we’re immediately supposed to be trying to be married and have kids.
You know everything is so cookie cutter for us and we’re not allowed to experience life in the way men are, so I really appreciated her for that song and I really appreciated my past relationship for letting me know; Keke you don’t have to be perfect. It’s important for you to have your own identity. And sometimes that means, you have to go and you have to experience things and you can’t be afraid of that. Live your life and stop trying to be perfect and be willing to make mistakes because that’s what God wants you to do in order to find your way back to him.
