Keke Palmer covers the January 2015 Issue of Essence Magazine; Talks about Her Recent Breakup & Being Cinderella
She covers the January 2015 issue of Essence magazine looking very grownup and sexy. 21-year-old Keke Palmer talks about being all grown up and making major career moves.
On playing Cinderella on Broadway: I know that the role of Cinderella is primarily for a Caucasian girl, but it didn’t stop me from going in and it didn’t stop them from seeing me. There is a bit of intimidation. You think about Denzel, Viola Davis, and you think; Only great people can do Broadway. That was the scariest thing about it, but I’m the type who thrives on pressure.
On moving on after a recent breakup: I realized that I’m a lot freer of a spirit. That was the beginning of me standing up for myself. I would love to have somebody but this is such a great time in my life, in my career. I really am liking myself.
On staying positive no matter what: I sometimes have an issue of wanting everybody to have that positive outlook, but you can’t change the way anybody else is gonna think
