Despite popular belief, Palmer claims that Keke is not a shortened form of Keyana but derives from the fact that Keke was the name of her older sister’s imaginary friend before Keke was born. Palmer started as a singer in churches, but she became well-known after appearing in a theatrical show at a Chicago landmark. Palmer at age nine, tried out for a role in a 2002 theatre version of The Lion King.
What is the Sexuality of Keke Palmer?
Keke Palmer told PEOPLE magazine that she is uncomfortable with sexuality being pinned down in this way. The sexuality of the Scream Queens star had been questioned before after her “I Don’t Belong to You” music video was released. In the video, Palmer breaks up with her fiancé to go to fellow singer Cassie’s house for a lingerie party. It was unclear how Palmer had been identified in that incident.

The video’s purpose was to portray the modern young woman, not to address the question of “Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi?'” Palmer says. “I’m making the rules for myself and I don’t have to be stuck down to one label.”
Palmer had already written about the video for the November issue of Cosmopolitan. “I think the point of the whole video was to let people know that that my sexuality is up to me,” Palmer told Cosmopolitan.
“That’s really the point — it’s female autonomy and her being who she wants to be in the world; there’s no labels attached, she’s just doing her! She doesn’t have to explain it to anybody because at the end of the day, it’s her that decides what she wants to do and who!”
