Keke Palmer has become known for keeping it quite real these days, so her latest comments about the Kardashians Klan, namely Kylie Jenner, aren’t that surprising. But, they are a little shady.
Palmer opened up to Yahoo! Beauty about a variety of things, but it was her comments about the pressures to maintain social media’s standard of beauty and KJ’s inauthentic lifestyle that made headlines.
“So often people feel like, you know what, I’m going to beat them to the punch and either degrade myself or be so damn perfect they have nothing to say,” Palmer explained while referencing the Kardashians. “We’ve seen extremes of that.” The actress/singer then went on to explain, “Specifically in the situation with Kylie, where you’ve had a young girl people have seen on television since she was a kid and they literally told her she was so ugly … the ugly person in the family. She went and did apparently everything the world deems as beautiful. The even crazier part is that everybody loves her for it,” Palmer said.
But it seems like Keke may have the secret sauce to confidence. “There’s nothing more important in life than being true to ourselves and being 100 percent loving to ourselves,” she explained. “Putting our feelings [first] how we wanna feel and do that above what anybody thinks no matter how impossible, selfish, weird, scary. or embarrassing that may seem. Palmer continued, “When I realized that, I realized that’s what it means to be confident. Confidence is me making choices that empower me.”
Do you think Keke went to far in her critique of Kylie + Krew? Or was she spot on?
