Keke Palmer On Her Evolving Looks: “I Got Tired Of Living Behind My Brand”



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.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
