Keke Palmer has grown up right before our eyes. But for the actress, who is the star of Jamal Hill’s upcoming drama, Brotherly Love, her evolving looks, style and brand has come with a bit of backlash.
If you follow the beauty on Instagram, you might have noticed that the 21-year-old recently cut her hair and her style has become a bit more edgy. And while many of the Illinois native’s millions of fans and followers are hesitant to accept Palmer’s new look, the star wants to make one thing clear: “Life is about changing.”
“You’re only going to grow if you change,” Keke told HipHollywood exclusively. “I got tired of living behind my brand only. Realizing, I can have my private life and I can have my work life.”
“It’s trying to find a happy balance and encouraging other people like myself that maybe aren’t even in the industry to feel the same way,” Palmer said when asked about defending herself on social media. “Don’t be afraid to grow and change and walk outside of what you thought you were. That’s nothing to be afraid of. That’s what life is about. Life isn’t’ about holding on to old things.”
Right now, Palmer is rocking her long locks, but rest assure, her short hair will be back sooner than later. Click above to find out what Keke and Brotherly Love executive producer, Queen Latifah both say about the her short, sassy do.
BL which also stars Cory Hardrict, Quincy Brown and Eric Hill, hits theaters on April 24.
Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response
HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.
The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.
We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.
After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:
“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”
He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”
The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.
As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.
Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.
The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
