Keke Palmer Talks New Music and TV Project with Kontrol Magazine


Keke Palmer’s seamless transition from child to adult actress is cemented with her grown and sexy look for Kontrol magazine’s “Passport to Sexy Issue.” Inside, the beautiful thespian rocks designs by “Kontrol The Runway” winner Rachel Mills and dishes on working with Bangladesh on new music.

“I always felt so unheard when I was with Atlantic and when I was with Interscope.,” she tells the glossy. “I always felt like no one really understood me or got who I was as an artist or really believed in it. Now, I feel like I’m finally being heard and the music that I’m making is more reflective of who I am.”

Palmer, who recently wrapped filming the TLC biopic, will also flex her acting chops for Full Circle, a DirecTV series that will study the interlocking relationships between 11 different people. Set to debut in Fall 2013, DirecTV describes the show as:

“Characters passing the torch from one episode to the next include Tim (Felton) an exchange student from England and his love interest Bridgette (Kelly); Bridgette’s husband Stanley (McMahon), a charismatic and intense entertainment lawyer; Stanley’s client Jace (Boreanaz), a famous comic known for his outlandish behavior; Chan’dra (Palmer), whose life was irrevocably altered as a result of a joke that Jace took too far; Cliff (Gearhart), a classmate Chan’dra secretly has a crush on; Cliff’s father Trent (Campbell) and his wife Trisha (Walsh); Peter (Jackson), an aspiring singer who intrudes on a special night between Trent and Trisha; Robbie (Silver), Trisha’s student who purports an unusual connection to his teacher, and his mother Celeste (Sheedy), with whom he shares an unnerving bond. The final episode brings the characters together, with the unexpected addition of one (Weigert), for an explosive ending that is sure to change all of these characters lives irreparably.”
