Spotlight on: Keke Palmer

I don't know about you all but I actually want to see the movie "Akeelah and the Bee". Keke Palmer has the role of Akeelah in the movie (which also stars Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne). This isn't Keke's first movie, she also had a role in "Madea's Family Reunion" and she was in "Barber Shop 2" as Queen Latifah's rude niece. But not only is she an actress, she's a singer too. She recently signed a contract with Atlantic records. You can check out pictures from the set of her music video below (along with the director and extras). The video was shot on April 15th for her song "All My Girlz". Oh yeah, in case you're wondering, Keke is only 12 years old. I have a feeling that she's going to be around for a while...

she was also in a movie about chess with the little boy from Antwone Fisher. If she keeps it up she might just have her own show on Disney Channel and be the next Raven-Symone'

Aww she looks cute. Very rarely do you see kids looking thier actual age, its nice to see a 12 year old who looks twelve instead of 25. That movie does look good though.

She's cute but she does seem a lil' grown for her age. I'm 18 and it seems girls in my generation are more maturely developed and older lookin'(and actin' sometimes)The boys seem to be stunted.

It is sooo good to see a naturally pretty black girl on tv. She represents a lot of brown skinned girls who are gorgeous without weave (wait, she may be wearing one--but you get my point) or curly/wavy hair.
She is also very talented!

I agree with Anon 10:59. Beautiful brown skinned girl representing. She reminds me of Brandy when she came out...TOO CUTE. I appreciate her presence in the industry. SOOOOO needed.

She's kind of got that Gabrielle Union affect. I'm happy to see them put "real girls" on t.v. I love the light skinned and mixed breed girls cuz I'm one of them, but my sister is struggling with that shit, and it's good to see a role model for her and other people, and me as well.

@ J-mami, what constitutes as a "real girl". Are lightskinned/mixed breeds "un real" or too good to be true? Please explain.
By the way, I appreciate that you are able to be proud of who you are and want to help your sister who is struggling. What's going on with her?

well...i agree with what the girl above.....i like how they put more black girls on tv...i know black people come in all different colors and shit...but hollywood seems to think that girls like jennifer nicole freeman are black...like how the hell did she fit on "my wife and kids" she was sooooo out of sync.

NO I AGREE WITH 4:30 EXPLAIN? LEAVE THAT MIXED HALF BREED SHIT UP OUT OF THIS! THE GIRL IS CUTE FORGET HER COLOR AND I DON'T THINK
SHE'S HAVING ANY PROBLEMS SHE JUST GOT STARTED AND SHE'S WORKING!

^I agree. Seems like we always turn stuff into "she represneting for the dark skin sistahs, etc.." Light skin, dark skin. Fake looking, natural looking. Ugh.
Get off it. She's a talented, young black girl.

I meant *representing

What at 12:49pm? Areskin complexions different races now? I don't get the "light/dark skin" thing in the black community. She doesn't represent "brown skin" girls, she represents the young black girls all over depsite "shade" or whatever. Keep separating like they want you to. But anyway, she's a cutie.

I agree with a lot of people shes a cute girl. But shes not representing light or brown it doesnt matter what color you are as long as your blood is red. I hope she stays around for a long time. Shes a young role model but she better watch out cause im coming. Pretty soon yall are gonna see me up there but im gospel not r and b and hip hop. The Lord is soon to come. Peace and Amen!
