I’ve always like Keke Palmer, from Akeelah and the Bee to True Jackson, VP to her newest role as Zayday Williams on FOX’s comedy/horror show Scream Queens. She’s talented, beautiful, and at only 22 years old, incredibly grounded.
“My work is my life,” Keke says. “I’ve worked so much that I don’t know the difference between my personal life and my work, or my personal friends and my work friends.” In addition to Scream Queens, she’s also juggling the release of her second album and working her own talk show, “Just Keke,” which premiered last year on BET, making her the youngest talk show host in television history.
So, how does she do it? “I’ve done a lot of meditation studying on my own, but I’ve also taken a couple of transcendence classes,” Keke says, talking a mile a minute with a Midwest accent, a testament to her childhood in Illinois. “I do twenty minutes [of meditation] in the morning and twenty minutes in the afternoon. It clears my mind and allows me to be ready for the next thing, without getting so compact that my mind goes into overload.” [W Magazine]
