Keke Palmer posed for photos outside the Sirius Radio studios in New York City last Wednesday (October 3). The 19-year-old Nickelodeon star wore a bold red dress and new blonde hair.
Keke was promoting her involvement with the 3rd Annual Dove Self-Esteem Weekend. It’s a rally that took place this past Friday at Times Square.
She told the Huffington Post, “Even though I’m in the industry and I act and all this stuff, I still suffer from self-esteem issues … from the way that I look or the way that I talk … just nitpicking at myself.”
She added that the Dove event was a way for her to help peers “find healthier ways to have a relationship with beauty and not to have so much anxiety about living up to other people’s expectations.”
In a recent exclusive interview with Celebrity Teen Scoop Keke revealed that she is focusing on music right now.
“Right now I am focusing on my music career. I will never stop acting and I am always looking for great interesting roles, but I started out as a singer – my acting just took off first. Now I want to go back to my music it is a true love of mine as well.”
