Did you really expect to see someone else? Talk show host and actress, Keke Palmer makes Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2015 in the Hollywood & Entertainment section. Palmer’s been an undeniable force and role model for young black girls in the industry for over a decade now. And the debut of her BET talk show skyrocketed the 21-year old star to the top of the history charts.
According to Forbes:
“Palmer has been acting and singing since she was a child (at 12 she starred in Akeelah and the Bee) and this year she added talk show host to her resume. Just Keke premiered last summer making 21-year-old Palmer the youngest person to have her own talk show. She has also taken her talents to the stage as Cinderella, the first African-American woman to wear the glass slippers on Broadway.”
The list features 600 millennials in 20 fields and highlights our generation’s most innovative and creative. Other notable stars who were featured on Forbes’ fourth annual list were FKA Twigs, Jhené Aiko, Azealia Banks, fashion designers Darlene and Lizzy Okpo, and Jessica Williams from The Daily Show.
