Keke Palmer has come a long way since Akeelah and the Bee, but is she giving up on Hollywood to be hairstylist instead?
Of course not! But, the 20 year-old actress did admit that if she wasn’t doing movies, she’d be doing hair. “If I wasn’t an entertainer I would probably be a hair stylist. My family is full of hair stylist, my grandmother was a hair stylist for 40 years, my aunt is a hair stylist, my cousin is a hair stylist, I mean everybody in my family is a hair stylist, I would probably just be the loud mouth hair stylist”, Palmer told Fuzion magazine.
Hairstyling aspirations aside, Keke covers the October issue of Fuzion and in the mag she also talks about dating, fashion and playing Chili in the upcoming TLC biopic.
On dating- “I am dating someone right now, we have been dating for three years now he’s a great guy, but I’m definitely in that part of my life where I’m really focusing on doing what I need to do and getting what I need to do get done and same as him. So it’s more so us focusing on ourselves and then getting back to each other.”
Fashion inspiration- “ One of my favorite style icons would have to be Nicole Ritchie, I just oh my gosh, I literally go to her Instagram page and stare at like this for about 20 minutes. Her style is so impeccable; she’s just classy, fun, cool, edgy all at the same time. As far as music I think everyone loves Rihanna’s style— I like how fearless she is, I think that’s something everybody can love about Rihanna, she does what she wants and she feels comfortable in her decisions. That’s a really hard thing to do especially when you’re in the limelight, doing what you want and being comfortable in what you and loving who you are.”
On Chili- “ At the end the day I want her to be proud of my performance in the movie. She texted me when she saw the movie and was just like there couldn’t have been a better person that could have done it, I’m so proud of you, she and I really got a close relationship out of working on the movie.”
