Keke Palmer simply stunning Rolling Out Magazine shoot

Keke Palmer appears as Chilli in the brand new TLC movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story and the actress, singer & mogul has also recently covered the latest issue of Rolling Out, speaking on growing up in the spotlight, balancing her personal life with her career and her road to success. How beautiful are the photos shot by photographer DeWayne Rogers?
Growing up
'When people think of me initially, they remember me as ‘Akeelah [and the Bee].’ Sometimes it can be frustrating to be remembered at an age that you’ve outgrown. But at the same time, it’s never frustrated me to the point that I’ve wanted to lash out. I just take it one step at a time. I’ve been patient in letting people adapt to me and my growth.'
Balancing her personal and professional life
'Sometimes my personal life takes a backseat. My job never takes a backseat. Sometimes I feel like my life is in shambles and I’ll still be doing my job. It’s unintentional.'
Following her dreams
'I didn’t come from a lot. I had a lot of love and support from my family, but as far as money and that type of thing, I didn’t really have any of that.  All I did was follow my dreams. If my fans take anything from me, I hope it would be that. It’s not just me being so special — they are too. They just haven’t realized it yet.'
