Keke Palmer Proudly Embraces Her Authenticity:’I’m Taking the Wheel of My Own Life and Loving It

After years of hiding her sexuality, the 29-year-old actress claimed she chose to “explore her life” after years of repression. The revelation came during her visit on Raven and Miranda’s The Best Podcast Ever.

“There came a point in my life when I thought, you know, can I be myself? Palmer told co-hosts Raven-Symoné and the “That’s So Raven” star’s wife Miranda Maday, “This is the moment where you overthink s—.”

“That’s not even me; why am I overanalyzing this?” I think you simply get to a point where you want your life to be your own.”

Palmer, who has previously stated that she does not want to identify herself, admitted that she did not “live out” experiences in partnerships because she kept her sexuality secret from her family.

“There is an unsaid thing that can make you feel — and because I liked guys too, I was kinda like, ‘Well, we don’t have to talk about it,'” the actress explained. “Because I like guys, it was like another extra thing that no one needed to know about.” “I don’t have to live out.”

Palmer informed the podcast hosts at the age of 17 that she had accepted her emotions. “Ultimately, I just feel like accepting that part of myself in general was a part of my process of being able to have love in my life,” she added.

Her family eventually embraced her. The actress, who has a 4-month-old baby Leo with Darius Jackson, said her parents “never cared” about her sexuality and were always supportive.

“Sexuality and stuff like that, that was not even — my parents never even cared about or talked about something like that,” she continued.

“And I know that by the time they saw how free of spirit I was, and whoever I wanted to date, they were like, ‘Whoever cares.’ It was never anything that was in their mind.”

Almer initially attracted interest in her sexuality in 2016 when she released the music video for her tune “I Don’t Belong To You.” She ends up with a woman in the video.

Following the premiere of the video, she came out about not defining her sexuality. “The video was intended to represent the modern young woman – not the traditional woman – rather than the specifics of ‘Am I gay?'” Is my sexual orientation correct? “Am I bi?'”

“I’m making my own rules, and I don’t have to be limited to one label.”
