Keke Palmer Says She Refuses to Put a Label on Her Sexuality

For many former child stars, getting their fans to stop viewing them through a youthful lens can prove to be a difficult task. When Scream Queens actress Keke Palmer first debuted an edgy, short haircut and a nose piercing, she was forced to dish out some much-needed clapbacks to fans who couldn't accept that fact that she's a grown a** woman who no longer feels the need to fit a kid-friendly mold.

Recently, Keke flexed her independent woman status a little bit more when she spoke to People about her views on sexuality, which some fans questioned after she dropped the video for her single "I Don't Belong to You."

The 22-year-old said, "The video was to represent the young woman today – it's not the traditional woman anymore — and not the specifics of 'Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi?'" She added, "I'm making the rules for myself, and I don't have to be stuck down to one label."

Good for you, Keke. Some fans who have followed the singer-actress since her days on Nickoledeon's True Jackson, VP and before may struggle to embrace the change, but let's hope that their resistance is only a temporary condition. It would be a shame for an overwhelming sense of nostalgia to overshadow the fact that Keke appears to be a self-assured, independent thinker who's too busy being a #boss to be boxed in by society's ideals.
